Chris Pratt Recreates ‘Jurassic World’ Raptor Scene With Sick Kids, Remains A Sweetie

Is there anyone who’s not totally in love with Chris Pratt at this point? I mean, besides me (I like him, but I don’t think he’s anything special). He does seem like a really decent guy, however, and he’s fun, he’s cute, has a good sense of humour, yada yada. And he’s also using his fame for good things, like visiting sick kids at Our Lady of Lake Children’s Hospital in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where he reenacted some Jurassic World scenes, signed some autographs, and basically just made their day.

From BuzzFeed:

The visit was coordinated by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, an organisation that raises funds and awareness for 170 member children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada. The Reddit user said that if Chris Pratt’s “heart of gold” inspired people, they could consider donating to a CMN hospital in their area. “I guarantee they could use your dollars,” she added.

In a Facebook post, the hospital said: “Actor Chris Pratt, best known for Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy, took time out from filming his latest movie to visit with our ?#?AmazingKids? at Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital. Our patients were all smiles and we are so thankful to Chris for lifting their spirits by visiting and handing out Jurassic World goodies. Thanks to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals for coordinating such a special visit!”

Frankly, ALL celebs should be doing shit like this. You have an amazing platform to make a difference, so why wouldn’t you? This is great and I bet those kids had a blast.

Chris Pratt Doesn’t Want To Mess Up ‘Indiana Jones’

So, rumours have been going around for a while that Steven Spielberg is considering a reboot of the Indiana Jones franchise, and he wants Chris Pratt to star in it. Nothing is set in stone, but Pratt did talk to Entertainment Weekly this week about his thoughts on taking on such an iconic role. Spoiler alert: he’s pretty scared of messing it up.

For EW’s cover story this week, Pratt couldn’t confirm or deny the conversations but was definitely apprehensive about taking on such an iconic role. “You have to look at it and be like, ‘Is this right for me?’” says Pratt. “Is it right for me to do this? And is it perfect? You don’t want to be the guy who f—s that up.”

He does say that it’s kinda cool to even be included in rumors like that. He admits, “It’s pretty crazy that people hear that and they don’t go ‘What?!? That f—ing dude!’ What has happened in my life that you can see THAT?!”

I’m going to be honest – I’ve never actually seen any of the original Indian Jones movies, so frankly, I can’t really have an opinion on this one. However, I do think that casting Pratt could bring the franchise to a whole new generation of fans, so I’m not 100% against it.

What do you think?

The ‘Jurassic World’ trailer is here and I’m not sure how I feel about it

jurassic world

Look, Jurassic Park was an absolute CLASSIC, guys. I loved it, you loved it – I don’t know anyone who didn’t love it. So popular was the dinosaur movie that DJs even made techno remixes of the theme song! It was a glorious time to be alive.

However, like most good things, they must all come to an end. Unfortunately, studio execs are greedy as shit and don’t know when to call it quits, so they keep making sequel after sequel, each installment of which is progressively shittier, and it’s embarrassing for everyone. Is that the case with Jurassic World? Eh, I’m not sure yet.

The technology for special effects has certainly got better since Jurassic Park 3 or whatever that disaster was called, and this one has Chris Pratt, and he’s all the rage right now, so I suppose it has that going for it, but like… really? You had THREE major fucking disasters with your experiment of bringing back dinosaurs and you’re seriously opening a THEME PARK for a shit ton of adults and kids to come to and get up close and personal with these things? You’re REALLY going to create a “hybrid” dinosaur, which is OBVIOUSLY going to get out and kill everyone? REALLY? I mean, I know it’s suspension of disbelief and all, but…

really

What do you think? Will you see it? I mean, all bullshit aside, I will be on this like white on rice, despite its ridiculousness.

Chris Pratt and Ariana Grande ‘SNL’ promos are here!

Chris Pratt is hosting the season premiere of Saturday Night Live this weekend, and the musical guest is none other than America’s (least) favourite diva, Ariana Grande. NBC put out promos for the episode yesterday, and needless to say, they are… uncomfortable at best. Ariana has the personality of paint on a wall, and you KNOW homegirl was fuming that SNL dared to film the right side of her face.

I love that even in the still, she’s got her face sorta turned to the left so the camera catches more of that angle. I wish I knew why she was so nuts and what the deal is with the other side of her face. It’s not like she’s got some droopy eye or some shit, so I’m guessing this is pure Hollywood special snowflake insanity.

Chris Pratt will probably be funny, though!

Anna Faris’ Cat Sparks Huge Twitter Backlash

Anna Faris is ready to start a family with her hubby, actor Chris Pratt of “Parks and Recreation” and Moneyball! Yaaaay! They are going to have the cutest, funniest, most talented babies.

But before the loving couple gets down to work (heh), they need to tie up some loose ends. So: Chris Pratt asked his Twitter followers whether anyone were interested in adopting Anna’s beloved cat.

Bad move! Reports Us,

Unfortunately, Pratt’s inquiry was met with a several rude comments and even death threats, prompting the actor to address the situation on his official website.

“To those of you somehow hung up on the notion that I kicked the walker out from underneath our cat and threw her into the streets, first of all, cats don’t use walkers, so that’s a ridiculous notion,” Pratt wrote. “Secondly, I found my aging cat a g—damn loving home! Ease up with the death threats for Heaven’s sake!”

It looks like Mr. Pratt removed his blog post shortly after, and Google Cache has no memory of it. Grr!

I really feel for Chris Pratt. Don’t get me wrong—I would never get rid of my boyfriend’s cat. Or any cat! And I say that as a person who is allergic to cats (not deathly, no, but palpably).

But my best friend is an expectant mother, and her heart is totally crushed: she probably/definitely has to give up her beloved cat, Elton. Mind you, this isn’t like a weird 1700s superstition thing. That demon-cat has been feral since he was a kitten, and he has only become more freaking sinister these last ten years. He always slinks into the guest bedroom in the middle of the night and claws me in the eye. I have to lock the door! I’m telling you, given the chance, that cat would totally gnaw a baby’s face off. Fact.

Anna Faris Is Getting Fat for Her Wedding

Now HERE’S some refreshing news: Anna Faris, who’s getting married this summer to actor Chris Pratt (no relation to the Douchepratt), says rather than starve herself in preparation, she’s eating more.

“I am fattening it up!” she confessed when asked if she’ll be changing her workout routine for the big day. “Now that I have a man, I’m like, ‘Oh, I don’t have to try anymore! Now I can eat. We love to splurge at home. We love to cook. My fiancé is an incredible eater, and so he’s really fun to feed, and it’s great to share some wine and watch a movie. He’s always like, ‘Baby, don’t lose that butt!’”

Oh whatever. Like Anna Faris has a butt. Also this is the same girl whose face completely changed, Audrina-style, somewhere around 2007. So I’m not entirely sure I’m buying into the I-love-me-for-me argument she’s presenting here.

The cool thing here is that I’ve FINALLY heard of this dude she’s marrying — he’s in the new Amy Poehler show, Parks & Recreation (which is actually really really good if you haven’t seen it). He plays Andy, the loser, broken-legged boyfriend of Rashida Jones’ character. Hopefully he’ll end up being more stable for Anna — she dumped her last husband, another unknown actor, in April 2007.
