Watch Chris Pratt's MTV Awards speech where he shares his faith in his 9 rules for life.

Actor Chris Pratt was honored with the Generation Award at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards on Sunday night. In his acceptance speech, he surprised the audience with 9 “rules” for life.

Pratt’s humorous personality was on display as he advised, “don’t be a turd.” But when he explained what that looks like, he went deeper.

“If you are strong, be a protector. And if you are smart be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons and don’t yield them against the weak,” he shared.

Our team was actually very moved and impressed by the nuggets of wisdom he shared on a rather unlikely stage. From very basic, “breathe,” to very spiritual, “God is real” and “learn to pray” — many of his 9 “rules” inspired us and gave us hope.
