Movie Star and certified Nice Boy "Jurassic World" star Chris Pratt recently pre-apologized for any offense he might cause on the upcoming and extensive press tour for that movie. All too often, trying to get a laugh, stars drop an oopsie and say something they didn't mean to come off wrong. Pratt, via a Facebook status, predicted that he would do the same.
"I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming #JurassicWorld press tour," his pre-apology read in part. "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). I am not in the business of making excuses. I am just dumb. Plain and simple. I try. I REALLY try!"
While we doubt that Pratt is actually dumb, he has said a few things with a whiff of dumbinosity -- but a boatload of charm -- over the years.
Perhaps Retta, talking about Pratt's "Parks and Recreation" character Andy Dwyer, put it best: "Oh, Andy, you're fine, but you're simple."
Ahead, 11 adora-dumb things that Chris Pratt has said -- in character and out-- that we don't even need him to apologize for.
"I'm allergic to sushi, every time I eat more than 80 sushi I barf."
Andy Dwyer on food sensitivities. ("Parks and Recreation")
"Probably something i saw as a kid simply for the sentimentality of it all. So Like Goonies or Bloodsport or something like that. Or maybe Rambo First Blood or the last Rambo where he outruns that dog, that s--t was f--king crazy, or maybe City of God because that movie is awesome or Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon or Across the Universe because I love the Beatles so much, or Country Strong, because just kidding, but that movie is actually really good but not my favorite of all time. Maybe the Neverending Story although I'm sure it doesn't hold up but I'll never know cause i'll never watch it again cause i hate when movies that i loved as a kid don't hold up for instance tango and cash just terrible."
