Chris Pratt would like you to know that he’s very sorry. He just doesn’t know what for yet.
In a refreshingly honest and hilarious Facebook post, the “Jurassic World” star preemptively apologized for any trouble he may cause during what’s sure to be a fun but exhausting press tour for his upcoming blockbuster release.
“I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming #JurassicWorld press tour,” Pratt wrote. “I hope you understand it was never my intention to offend anyone and I am truly sorry. I swear. I'm the nicest guy in the world. And I fully regret what I (accidentally will have) said in (the upcoming foreign and domestic) interview(s).”
After refusing to make excuses for his potential misbehavior — opting instead to admit, “I am just dumb” — he continued, “To those I (will have) offended please understand how truly sorry I already am. I am fully aware that the subject matter of my imminent forthcoming mistake, a blunder (possibly to be) dubbed "JurassicGate" is (most likely) in no way a laughing matter.”
Just a few weeks ago, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans received a ton of backlash for their tasteless, slut-shaming jokes about Scarlett Johannson’s character, which Renner later blamed on “an exhausting and tedious press tour.” Perhaps this is Pratt’s way of making sure he’s covered his own hiney should he have a similar slip of the tongue? Or maybe he’s just giving us yet another example of his hilarious, self-deprecating sense of humor. The dude has nothing but a stellar reputation as a stand-up guy, so our money’s on the latter.
In yet another hilarious short essay posted on Facebook last night, the actor also managed to make us even MORE hyped up for “Jurassic World” by gushing about the project and assuring us it’s a “memory y’all will cherish forever.”
Pratt also reiterated that the forthcoming press tour is going to be exhaustive, saying we’ll be seeing “A LOT” of him in the next few weeks. Foolishly suggesting that his overexposure would make us groan at the mere thought of seeing his face (psh, yeah right!), he’s suggested a playful distraction that we can definitely get behind.
“If it gets old or you grow weary of my face just remember, you could always do what I did while waiting for the original Jurassic Park to open, go outside and play with imaginary dinosaurs!” he wrote. “They are the best and they are free!!!…Take science, add a dash of imagination, 40 thousand tons of suspense and you get an experience that defines a generation!”
