Chris Pratt used to be homeless

Chris Pratt used to live in a 'Scooby-Doo' van.

The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' hunk, 35, has revealed he used to be homeless before he landed his big break as an actor and even slept in a rundown vehicle with the favourite cartoon dog printed on the side.

Taking to his official Facebook account last night (16.08.14) he posted a picture of him standing next to the white van whilst clutching a script believed to be 'Cursed Part 3', which he accompanied with the caption: "Can't believe I found this picture!!! That is the van I lived in!!! In my hand is the script for the movie that got me out of Maui. Crazy. (sic)."

The 'Moneyball' star - who married actress Anna Faris in 2009 - dropped out of college at the age of 17 after just one semester before buying a one-way ticket to Maui, Hawaii, where he spent most nights sleeping in a tent on the beach, but he previously admitted it was a "charming time" in his life and he has no regrets.

He said last month: "It's [Maui is] a pretty awesome place to be homeless.

"It would be different if I lived on the streets of Chicago and ate garbage from a dumpster. We just drank and smoked weed and worked minimal hours, 15 to 20 hours per week, just enough to cover gas, food and fishing supplies. You know, it was charming time."
