Actor Chris Pratt posted a series of pictures to Instagram last Easter showing himself and two friends erecting a huge cross in the Texas desert.

In a recent interview with Stephen Colbert, he discussed the time he and some friends erected a huge cross on Easter weekend.

He said he felt it was symbolic to erect the cross on the day before Easter.


“They had this big cross. It was on a Saturday, the day before Easter, and they said, ‘You know, we got this big cross. We gotta bring it up this great big hill at some point.’ I said, ‘Let’s do it right now … I want to do it. And, it’s Saturday before Easter, if you think about it, that’s what Jesus was doing 2000-something years before on a Saturday before Easter, was carrying a cross up a hill!’ … It took us like two days. The thing was super heavy, and it was like just so rewarding and awesome.”
