Chris Pratt Freaks Out After Deleting Over 50,000 E-mails In Declutter Mistake

Chris Pratt's e-mail decluttering project didn't go according to plan.

Chris Pratt accidentally deleted 51,000 emails while trying to declutter his inbox.

On his Instagram story, the Guardians of the Galaxy star revealed he has a staggering 35,944 unread e-mails sitting in his mailbox on his phone, and later confessed to having accidentally deleted them all — plus several thousand read e-mails — while trying to sort through them.

He said: "Yesterday my son [Jack] was playing with my phone and he gasped in shock, looking at the number of unread e-mails that I had, it's a lot, it's a lot. I get it! I know. It's mostly junk, see what I do is I sign up for everything. I'm one of those idiots who will do like an IQ test [online] that requires putting in your e-mail address."

Chris, 40, promised to shave the notifications down to zero by opening and reading 1,000 a day, but soon followed up his post with bad news.

He added: "Trying not to panic. I think I just tried something to delete anything unread and it just deleted them. So now I'm like, 'Oh no. I needed to read them. But I don't know where they went.'

"So if I owe you an e-mail, you might want to follow up on that. Resubmit, perhaps, the e-mail and then I'll read it. It may have just gotten deleted."

The Jurassic World actor — who has Jack, seven, with his ex-wife Anna Faris and is will soon become a father for a second time when his wife Katherine Schwarzenegger gives birth to their first child — then realised it wasn't just the thousands of unread e-mails that had been wiped from his inbox.

In another update, he said: "Fifty-one thousand messages are in the trash. Oh f**k. What did I do? It's just deleting them all. All my emails. Oh my God. This could be a real nightmare."

On the plus side, Chris says he's now looking at his clean inbox as a "fresh start".— BANG
