I was really pumped up for the Chris Pratt interview during the #GuardiansOfTheGalaxyEvent. On my way out to California I had the copy of Entertainment Weekly with Chris on the cover. I kept taking selfies with it and tweeting silly things like “Flying to California with @prattprattpratt, I hope he doesn’t commandeer the armrest.” And I took photos like this one:
Just silly stuff because when I think about Chris Pratt I think mostly about a guy who can embrace the silly and come up with something very clever. I love his delivery of lines from movies like Delivery Man and The Lego Movie. He really knocks it out of the park with his comedic timing as Peter Quill in Guardians of the Galaxy. In our group interview he completely won us over with his charm, self-deprecating humor and authenticity.
Laughter started off our interview and laughter finished it. The first question to Chris was from Mitch of Gay NYC Dad who once again gets points for the cleverest break the ice question. Mitch said, “You clearly didn’t need it but did they want you to take dance lessons?” This made all of us laugh and Chris as well. Chris’ response was “how about that, how about that kind of thing. That’s just like another element to this movie that’s like unlike anything, anyone has ever done in a way, so that’s pretty cool.” You can catch Chris’ moves in a few scenes in Guardians of the Galaxy. I know that Mitch was alluding to something later in the movie but I loved a part very early on in the movie it was so funny and not only set up who Peter Quill was in his own mind but who he aspired to be. read more!
