We’re officially hooked on a feeling, and that feeling is an overwhelming crush on
“Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt.
In an interview with Panzer TV to promote Marvel’s latest effort, Pratt confirmed that wonderful comedic timing, hair braiding skills, and a six-pack to rival Hugh Jackman’s just simply wasn’t enough for him — no he had to go ahead and fuel our hopeless crushes by being genuinely kind as well. Basically, when asked if he was prepared to be a hero to children after they saw his turn as Peter “Star-Lord” Quill, he came up with the greatest answer in the history of human answers.
“I stole the jacket and some of the wardrobe so that, if this movie comes out and does what everyone hopes it can, I can follow the example of someone — say, like, a Russell Wilson — and go visit kids,” he said, referring to the Seattle Seahawks quarterback who visits the Seattle Children’s Hospital during his days off.
“If it was a big enough movie to where it would mean something to a kid who’s sick in the hospital for Peter Quill or Star-Lord to come visit them, I’ll do that. I think that’s awesome, man. That would give me real meaning for this movie, you know?”
Not really, but we can imagine. And having seen the film, we can vouch that it will very likely mean something to kids of all ages to have Pratt come over for a visit — though of course, the one he wants to impress most is his own son with Anna Faris, Jack.
“Right now, it means high profile, cool jobs coming up, big press tour, and all the excitement of it all,” he concluded. “But none of that really means anything. The coolest things would be that my son can one day see this, and that maybe I can go affect some kids in a positive way; be a good role model for them.”
