Warning, you’re totally going to need a tissue for this one. Chris Pratt has spoken about how filming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 helped him deal with his father’s death and it’s just too much.

While Chris Pratt might usually make us smile with his adorable and goofy Instagram pics and videos, the star isn’t afraid to broach serious topics, especially when it comes to his family. That actor and father often shares videos of his 4-year-old son Jack, and last year he paid tribute to his late father, who died in 2014, on Twitter and how he impacted his parenting skills.

Now Chris has opened up about how filming the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy helped him face his grief and it’s emotional.

Speaking to British GQ, the star said that he was initially reluctant to face his problems, but he was glad that he did.

Speaking to American GQ last year, the star opened up about what it was like losing his father while filming Jurassic World.

Given that he was playing the lead, Chris said that felt responsible to keep attitudes positive on set.

Continuing, he went on to say that his dad was an “old school dad” who taught him and his brother to be tough.

While we’re excited to see Chris in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, we’re also so glad that through his work he was able to address whatever issues he was facing. It’s great to hear that he’s managed to tackle his grief and we’re so impressed with his bravery for speaking out about it.

We love you Chris!
