Between Guardians of the Galaxy and starring in the year’s second most profitable movie (not even Jurassic World could beat out Star Wars), Chris Pratt keeps on giving us more and more reasons to love him.
Like on Wednesday, when he dropped by the Seattle Children’s Hospital just two days before Christmas to cheer up the kids who will be spending their holidays away from home. What’s more, he brought Super Bowl champion Russell Wilson and his lovely girlfriend, R&B songstress Ciara, along for the ride.
“Had the most amazing day at @seattlechildrens hospital,” Pratt wrote in a post on Instagram. “Got to meet a ton of great kids and parents. Also got to spend some time with one of my personal role models @dangerusswilson and his lovely lady Ciara. I am truly living the dream.” Seattle Children’s Hospital also shared this amazing photo of Pratt having a very special moment with a young cancer patient while holding a dancing Baby Groot toy from Guardians.
Since making the leap from Parks & Recreation to feature film star, Pratt has definitely used his worldwide fame in the best way possible. After his favorite team, the Seattle Seahawks, lost to the New England Patriots earlier this year, he dropped by Christopher’s Haven, a Massachusetts-based cancer treatment center for children, to settle a bet with actor and Patriots fan, Chris Evans. He also regularly breaks out his Star-Lord costume from Guardians to entertain and visit sick kids.
It all goes to prove that whether or not you play a hero onscreen, you can always be a hero in real life.
