Cute couple of the century Chris Pratt and Anna Faris have added a new hobby to their charming lives: pro wrestling. It's an easy skill to master when you're besties with pro-wrestler-turned-actor Dave Bautista.

In a video Faris posted to her Instagram feed, we see the couple trying out the Batista Bomb, with Bautista providing instruction. Presumably Bautista is spending time with the couple during filming of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which he stars in alongside Pratt as Drax the Destroyer, a character the wrestler made especially lovable with his deadpan portrayal.

Considering her tiny frame and ability to take instruction well, Faris may just be right about that career backup plan. Not that she needs it. The 39-year-old busy bee currently stars in the CBS series Mom and had a hilarious cameo in Key and Peele's recently released comedy Keanu. She also hosts a podcast called Anna Faris is Unqualified.

For his part, Pratt executes the move admirably, but most funny is when he excitedly recalls the full execution of the move:

"Oh yeah! And then I WOULD slam her down. But I won't."

Glad he realizes he should probably not take the move all the way to completion on the mother of his child.


Bautista, who used the Batista Bomb during his many years in the WWE, was recently cast in the Blade Runner sequel.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is currently set to release May 5, 2017.
