Here’s everything we learned from Chris Pratt’s “Ask Me Anything” and yes, it’s all amazing
One of Reddit’s greatest gifts to the internet — besides an endless supply of cute animal photos — is the AMA, or Ask Me Anything. We never pass up the chance to get a candid peek into the minds of our favorite celebrities. And Chris Pratt’s is one of the best ones we’ve seen yet.
The super funny and super adorable Chris Pratt recently did an AMA in promotion of his new movie with Jennifer Lawrence, Passengers, set to release on December 21. And, like anything that Chris does, it’s hilarious.
Here are some of the wonderful things Chris said during his AMA:
When asked if he and Eminem would do a song together:
"He's been after me for years to do a song. Wait, no? He doesn't know I exist? Oh. Well....probably not. Simply because he wouldn't do it. Haha! But I'd buy his cologne if he had one."
A super interesting question about body image in Hollywood popped up, too. “How has your past as an overweight, comedic character influenced your growth as an actor, especially now that you’re considered one of the sexiest Hollywood stars?” someone asked.
Chris answered, "I was confident and in good shape when I first came to LA, but nobody would cast me in any well written roles...I only auditioned to play the douchebag characters. My audition material would be like 'Bradley, 24, you hate him immediately'...They never let me improv or do comedy. It wasn't until I built a shlubby exterior, which stood in stark contrast to my inner confidence that people gave me room to play."
Also, he provides some much-needed insight into how much Parks and Recreation’s Andy Dwyer is based off himself:
"Andy Dwyer is the personification of my comedic schtick. I have been making people laugh with that clown for years and years. Way before I ever did Parks and Rec. He's not all of me. But I AM all of him, if that makes any sense."
And perhaps most adorably, when asked who his favorite actor is, he answered perfectly.
Sigh. That Anna is one lucky girl.
