If you close your eyes when listening to Chris Pratt you’ll think you’re in the Sugar Hut.
It feels like almost every week Chris Pratt does something new that makes us fall in love with him even more. But this week’s edition of ‘reasons to love Chris Pratt’ even managed to throw us for a loop, as we never thought we’d be praising the Jurassic World star for his spot on Essex accent!
Who knew? Chris Pratt does a pretty spot on Essex accent.
Appearing on BBC Two’s ‘The Graham Norton Show’ on Friday night, Pratt revealed a hidden talent that would be sure to leave even Joey Essex gobsmacked. Sitting next to Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law and comedian John Bishop, the hunky American actor explained he’d been watching ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ while filming in the UK.
The actor vows never to own a bike of his own.
Chris Pratt may be used to stunt work by now, following superhero epic 'Guardians of the Galaxy', but that apparently didn't make him any less nervous when it came to performing yet more stunts on the set of the new 'Jurassic World' movie.
Chris Pratt in 'Jurassic World'
Pratt plays Owen Grady in the movie; a motorcycle enthusiast and Velociraptor trainer; so of course, this meant he had one of the most stunt-heavy roles in the whole film. The only problem was, Pratt had serious reservations about some of the activity he had to shoot while astride a Triumph bike, and vowed to never take up riding away from his professional life.

Years after the horrific failure of John Hammond's Jurassic Park project, and him later taking the blame for the "incident" in San Diego, InGen has continued its research into the genetic creation of prehistoric creatures. InGen has succeeded in many of the places where Hammond failed, however, as Jurassic World opened to smash success. After years of success, though, visitors are starting to dwindle at the park, leading to the creation of a new genetically engineered dinosaur. This one is smarter, faster, and more dangerous than any of the previous creatures, but when it breaks out of its cage, the island is faced with a threat that the world has never seen before.
'Jurassic World' is about to hit.
Chris Pratt has apologized in advance for his upcoming Jurassic World press tour, calling himself "dumb" and warning that his comments might be "tasteless". Pratt, 35, wrote a message to fans on his Facebook page.

It probably won't hold up in court.
Chris Pratt is really working his perfect gentleman image. He also somehow manages to come off as an adorable goof at the same time. Case in point: his apology, in advance, for any remarks made during the Jurassic World press tour.
Chris Pratt: national treasure.
He doesn’t yet know what he might say in the head of the moment, but Pratt just wanted to cover his back. The actor penned a hilarious sorry letter as he embarks on a worldwide tour to promote the upcoming film.
The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star remembers when his wife was more famous than him, and when other actors would ignore him and chat her up.
He’s arguably the most in-demand actor in the world right now, but Chris Pratt remembers a time when he wasn’t so recognisable and when other actors would flirt with his wife Anna Faris – right in front of him!
35 year old Pratt, the forthcoming star of blockbuster Jurassic World, revealed in a new interview with GQ magazine that he would get annoyed when famous actors would disrespect him in this way. “I've had those moments, where I was like the guy holding the purse at events and people just look right through me. And, you know, actors come up and just blatantly hit on my wife in front of me and don't even look at me. I'm like, ‘What the f***, dude?’”
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt
When John Hammond first created InGen and prepared Jurassic Park, it was a colossal failure. When Jurassic World was later opened for the public, a lot had been learnt from Hammond's mistakes, and the new amusement park opened without any problems. But when visitors began to dwindle, something drastic had to be done. Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard), the park operations manager has organised to have a hybrid dinosaur created, and needs the dependable and knowledgeable Velociraptor trainer Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) to ensure the enclosure is safe for the new dinosaur. But when it eats its twin, and Grady arrives to inspect it, the Indominus rex breaks free, bringing havoc and destruction in its wake.

Chris Pratt raved about his wife, Anna Faris, in a recent AMA.
The park is officially open! Twenty two years after the disastrous attempt to bread dinosaurs for an amusement park, another attempt was made and saw great success. The problem is, due to dwindling visitors, the management have had to try something new with the exhibits. Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard), the park operations manager, heads out to speak to Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), the velociraptor trainer. Due to his successful handling of the animals, she believes that he is the perfect person to check the new enclosure, and ensure that it is up to standard. But when someone has dedicated their life to earning the respect of the raptors, they have no idea what needs to be done with the Indominus rex. No one does.

It was the pair’s second hospital visit after they placed a bet on which of their teams would win the Super Bowl in February. If Pratt’s team (the Seattle Seahawks) won, Evans had agreed to visit the Seattle Children’s Hospital dressed as Captain America, while if Evans’ team (the New England Patriots) were successful, Pratt had promised to visit Christopher’s Haven, in Boston, as his Guardians of the Galaxy character, Star-Lord. Despite the win by Evans and the New England Patriots, the two men kept up both ends of their bargain and visited children at both hospitals dressed as their superhero counterparts.
