If you don’t already have Chris Pratt fever, you’re about to come down hard with it!
He’s charmed audiences in NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” blown up the big screen in this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy, proven he RULES at interviews (whether rapping like a pro or French braiding like one), and done one of the better ALS ice bucket challenges out there.
Now he’s making a difference and melting hearts with his recent visit to Los Angeles’ Children’s Hospital. Pratt arrived as Peter Quill aka Star-Lord — dressed in his Guardians of the Galaxy costume — and hung out with some of the patients, no doubt brightening their worlds in a major way.
As nurses, you know very well how important state of mind can be to recovery. Pratt seems to understand that too in an interview posted on YouTube in which he talks about being a kid obsessed with Han Solo and also about wanting to use his star(-Lord)dom to visit kids in the hospital to lift their spirits.
The whole interview is pretty great — as is everything Pratt — but skip to 4:20 to hear Pratt confess that he “stole” the jacket and other wardrobe pieces in anticipation of making pint-sized patients’ days.
“If it [becomes] a big enough movie to where it would mean something to a kid who’s sick in a hospital for Peter Quill or Star-Lord to come visit them, I’ll do that. I think that’s awesome. That would give me real meaning for this movie,” says Pratt.
Bravo, Star-Lord! Here are a couple more of our favorite Chris Pratt moments. Enjoy!
