Chris Pratt worked with Marvel and Children’s Miracle Network Hospital to arrange a special screening of Guardians of the Galaxy for patients, families and staff at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Wednesday. While the movie played, Pratt snuck out and dressed up as his character, Star-Lord. He spent more than three hours in full costume and handed out movie-themed toys. Pratt also visited patients in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases, and the Pediatric ICU, as they were too sick to join the movie screening that afternoon.
Pratt spent extra time with one patient, Dylan Prunty, who is a longtime Lego fan and recognized the actor’s voice from The Lego Movie. They spent about 10 minutes reciting different scenes from the film.
Chris Pratt talking about the best day of his life - “After wrapping Guardians of the Galaxy, I was very homesick and I was coming home to my wife and my son, who at the time was 13 months old. My wife told me, “Hey, listen there’s a chance he may not recognize you and he may be a little shy” and so I came in there, and he just sat right up and had this big smile on his face. He started saying, “Daddy, daddy, daddy!” and I just started to cry. He saw the tears in my eyes and started doing bits to make me laugh and that just made me cry more.”
“Chris came over and sat down, and I thought, ‘Oh, great. Who’s this meathead? Obviously he’s very beautiful, but he must be dumb as a post.’ And then he proceeded to be perfectly sweet and absolutely sharp as a tack, and I thought, 'Oh, I see. You’re a superhero’.” - Nick Offerman
I walked out of [Jurassic Park] with what I thought was a full understanding of genetics. Basically, I knew that if I found my own chunk of amber with a mosquito in it, the likelihood is I could go up in my room and whip out a T-Rex.
