12 Best Moments From Chris Pratt’s AMA That Prove He’s The Coolest Celebrity Existing

Chris Pratt just did a Reddit AMA in preparation for his new movie, Jurassic World. His AMA was titled, “Still half-drunk. Let’s make some mistakes today,” and needless to say (but I’ll say it anyway) it was awesome. Here are the highlights:

1. “What would Andy Dwyer/Johnny Karate/Bert Macklin be doing right now?”

Here’s something you might not have known about those characters. They smoked a lot of weed. they’d probably be doing that right now.

2. “I was recently bitten by a radioactive Chris Pratt. What is about to happen to me?”

Oh no. You’re probably gonna get fat and then skinny.

3. “Would you rather fight 1 Lilโ€™ Sebastian-sized duck or 100 duck-sized Lilโ€™ Sebastians?”

Most definitely 100 duck sized LIl’ Sebastians. Because I could kill most of them easily, but the remainder I would capture and breed as glamour pets. We could make literally hundreds of dollars.

4. “What advice would you give someone like me who wants to be an actor?”

Hey buddy, thanks! Advice for being an actor is this: figure out whether or not you believe in yourself, and if you don’t, find a way to. Because even more than you want it, you must believe it. And learn about yourself. The rhythm of one’s spirit is just as important as what you look like or what you sound like. Who are you? What’s your voice? What are you dying to contribute?

5. “What drew you [and Anna Faris] together? Is there some cute story in which you guys fell in love? Is Anna a great wife/mom?”

Anna and I are meant to be together. Our relationship has made me believe in divine intervention and destiny, just as much as my crazy career and the way I fell into this life. She and I grew up 20 minutes away from each other but never met until we met in LA. We both got our start in horror spoofs. We both did an animated movie for Phil Lord and Chris Miller. We both made our careers playing guileless nitwits for laughs. We both have parents that have suffered with MS. The similarities go on and on. Anna is a great wife. Very patient and understanding. Very supportive. So kind and genuine always. And she gave me a wonderful son and family of in laws that I truly love.

6. “What is your favorite movie and why?”

That is such a hard question. Probably something i saw as a kid simply for the sentimentality of it all. So Like Goonies or Bloodsport or something like that. Or maybe Rambo First Blood or the last Rambo where he outruns that dog, that shit was fucking crazy, or maybe City of God because that movie is awesome or Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon or Across the Universe because I love the Beatles so much, or Country Strong, because just kidding, but that movie is actually really good but not my favorite of all time. Maybe the Neverending Story although I’m sure it doesn’t hold up but I’ll never know cause i’ll never watch it again cause i hate when movies that i loved as a kid don’t hold up for instance tango and cash just terrible.

7. “Who would win in a fight, you or Nick Offerman?”

Trick question. We would never fight. Unless it was us against anybody else in which case we would win.

8. “My landlord says you used to rent the same house as me back when you were filming Everwood. Is this true? (The house in question, Salt Lake City, Utah http://imgur.com/opWPtqA) We’ve also gotten some junk mail addressed to “Chris P. Pratt”, but p isn’t your middle initial. Anyways we’ve been having a longstanding debate between the 4 roommates about which room you would have picked. Please settle this once and for all. Oh and we’ll be hanging a picture of you, your choice, in your room to pay respects to those who went before us. Oh and have any good stories from living here?”

Yes I did! Cool man. I had the upstairs. The back bedroom was my beat laboratory and the other room was my bedroom. You’ll notice the baseboards in the kitchen might be all fucked up cause I made a mouse trap out of bungee cords and screws and nails and stuff, with a little trip wire, no joke, there was a lot of thought that went into this, and pot too, and i whacked the mouse good but never killed him but did definitely do a lot of damage to the baseboards. anyhow. I love that place. And i hate mice. you still get mice?

9. “Are there any similarities between you and Peter Quill?”

Quill and I are basically the same person. We were born in the same year. We loved the same movies. The same music. If I were kidnapped at 10, taken to space and based my ideology on the pop culture of 1979-1989 I would be Peter Quill.

10. “What’s your favourite dinosaur?”

Not just saying this but probably the velociraptor. They are pack hunters and super cool. But also I love the Mosasaur. That’s the water dinosaur thing from the trailer that is SO FUCKING BADASS! Funny story, before I got Jurassic Park I gave James Gunn a wrap gift of an authentic Mosasaur Jawbone Fossil. So basically I can control the future.

11. “If you could change a word from the title of any films or television show you’ve starred in, what would the new title be? Example, ‘Sharks and Rec'”

Zero Dark Thirsty?

12. “Weโ€™ve had the pleasure of hosting Nick Offerman a couple times, and when asked about you, he brought up phrases including but not limited to โ€œmagnificent beastโ€, and โ€œmost beautiful creationโ€. Do you have a response that can go on record?”

Nick is a best selling author. He is a very rare breed. He is the epitome of integrity. He’s wildly intelligent. He shakes your hand, looks you in the eye and remembers your name. He is thoughtful and kind and absolutely devoted to his craft, his wife and his friends. He takes magnificent craps and sends them to me sometimes. And I like that very much. It’s almost like he’s from another time, a better time, when people were more real. Although they didn’t have texts back then so I guess it’s a wash with the crap pics.
