Wait. In the after picture you look... like maybe you gained a little... wait... hold on... https://t.co/1JnS4ZVycD chris pratt (@prattprattpratt)
Pratt pretended not to get the dig at first, saying: "Wait. In the after picture you look... like maybe you gained a little... wait... hold on..."
Bautista was, in all likelihood, aping a reverse of the transformation that Pratt underwent prior to starring in Guardians of the Galaxy; best known as the loveable schlub Andy Dwyer in NBC's Parks & Recreation, he lost weight and got ripped to play Peter Quill in the Marvel franchise . He has since become known for his intense workouts and unconventional diets , posting motivational videos to Instagram and challenging fans to make the most of their fitness journey .
Although if Bautista's joke is anything to go by, Pratt still loves the occasional snack on set. The tweet came a day after Pratt responded to a Men's Health UK story, in which a fan named Andy Beal shared the progress he made after working out like the actor for six months. "Wow! Keep up the great work Andy," Pratt said. We all need a kick in the butt from time to time. Honored my story motivated you! You have in turn inspired me."

Maybe Bautista was hoping to get similar praise from Pratt... Or maybe, just maybe, he was just trolling his friend and coworker.
