NEWS OF THE WEEK: Chris Pratt denies he's a religious person

The actor has sought to distance himself from claims he's extremely religious by calling organised worship "oppressive". Ever since the Jurassic World star praised God during an acceptance speech at the 2018 MTV Movie Awards reports have linked Pratt to evangelical Christian groups - including the controversial Hillsong Church. However, in a new interview with Men's Health, he said that although he believes in God, he isn't a "religious person" due to the problems caused by strict religious groups. "Religion has been oppressive as f**k for a long time.”
