Chris Pratt Took Ambien And Tried To Fight Dave Bautista

"No one has to know."

Wrestling ambitions, cell phones and sleeping pills are a dangerous combination, as Chris Pratt discovered during the filming of “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

The cast of the movie made an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” where Pratt’s co-star Dave Bautista shared the story of getting a late night text message from Chris. The text started out nicely enough, full of love and compliments for Bautista’s wrestling prowess — but then took a bizarre turn when Pratt began calling Bautista out and ultimately challenged him to a wrestling duel.

The only problem with this proposition — apart from the problem of said wrestling match inevitably ending very badly for Chris Pratt — was that Chris himself was blissfully unaware that he had offered himself up for a wrestling match.

“I had taken an Ambien! It was like a drunk text!” Pratt said.

Fortunately for all involved, the confusion was resolved without violence. And fortunately for fans of Chris Pratt, our beloved actor will not be torn into tiny pieces by a giant former pro wrestler anytime soon.
