Actor Chris Pratt recently denied allegations that he attended Hillsong megachurch, the scandal-ridden institution notorious for alleged anti-LGBTQ views and gay conversion therapy among other high-profile controversies.

Pratt, 43, denied the allegations during an interview with Men’s Health for its July-August cover story, 

saying that he has never been to the church nor does he know anyone from the congregation, which once attracted the likes of Justin Bieber.

“I never went to Hillsong,” said the “Jurassic World Dominion” star, who has been the subject of several controversies in the past.

“I’ve never actually been to Hillsong. I don’t know anyone from that church.”

In 2019, “Umbrella Academy” star Elliot Page was one of the first people to slam Pratt over his supposed ties to Hillsong after the “Avengers” star appeared on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” to talk about his faith.

“If you are a famous actor and you belong to an organization that hates a certain group of people, don’t be surprised if someone simply wonders why it’s not addressed,” tweeted Page,

who came out as a trans man in 2020. “Being anti-LGBTQ is wrong, there aren’t two sides. The damage it causes is severe. Full stop. Sending love to all.”

Pratt later responded on Instagram saying that the allegations were not true. “It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church

which ‘hates people’ and is ‘infamously anti-LGBTQ.’ Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone,” Pratt said.
