Chris Pratt Opens Up About Playing Star-Lord #GotGVol2Event

Chris Pratt Opens Up About Playing Star-Lord

Our Guardians of the Galaxy interviews were amazing. The day was a little hectic but we managed to get some scoop to share with our readers from the stars of the movie. I’m excited to share about our interview with Chris Pratt because he was simply amazing. This is my second time sitting down with Pratt, I had the opportunity to interview him during the Guardians of the Galaxy Secret Set Visit trip last year prior to seeing the film.

We’re sitting waiting for Pratt to arrive and all we heard from the hallway was someone shouting “Mommy Bloggers!”. Then he enters the room and we clap, he responds “what a nice welcome, I need this from everyone. I love it!” We started talking about the film and how much we loved it. He shared how he felt seeing the film for the first time.

I saw it about a week and a half ago for the first time, and last night was the second time. I was so relieved when I saw it because I knew like the script, the script, that movie is exactly what the script, how the script read. And so, I, when I read the script, I knew it was good. But there’s so much stuff that can happen between reading the script, and then watching the movie, you know? There’s so many moving parts, some of which I’m responsible for. So, I was like, [LAUGHS] please still be good. I was just relieved to see that the movie was as good as the script.

The film was definitely good, I shared my review/red carpet experience on the blog. I’m hoping to leave this spoiler free so you can experience the film in your own way. Next we talked about the role of Star-Lord and his father, who is played by Kurt Russell.

That idea, that concept was mind blowing. It was next level to me. And, understanding like the nuances I was gonna be allowed to play as this character, way different from the first movie. I mean, there were certain emotional tones in the first movie with Peter Quill with his mother, with that side of his origin. But this new story, feeling the reality of like his biological father, and this guy that he’s built up in his mind.

It’s a very contemporary story, and there’s a lot of kids that are gonna relate to that, whose dads weren’t around. And who have another man in their life who’s been responsible for raising them, and possibly how we’ve taken or how we can take relationships for granted that aren’t those relationships we have built up in our mind.

According to Pratt, he’s already gotten the scoop on Vol 3 from director James Gunn. Of course, if he does know anything he didn’t tell us, but Gunn already confirmed another installment in the film franchise. Pratt had a very emotional fight scene with his father in the movie. We asked him did his personal experiences help him deliver for that scene being that it was so emotional and raw.

That was something that for me as an actor is one of the hardest things for me to do, is channel anger, because I do it so rarely in my real life. Not saying that it’s healthy. Don’t really do it that often. And so, I think often times how we behave in the real world is that type of behavior’s really easy to do as an actor, for me at least, real natural stuff.

But for me to like look someone in the eye and yell at ‘em, and tell them what they did to me, that they wronged me, that I’m pissed off, that type of thing is not something I do that often. So, it’s hard for me to get there. And when you can’t like use just the natural empathy for your character that you’re playing, this character that you’re playing that you love and you have to have empathy for them, and then you feel their emotions. Because, you know, if that doesn’t work to get you there, you have to rely on some sort of tricks to work rather from the inside out, but from the outside in.

And I think that’s what I had to do in that scene. So, it was actually not as emotional for me as it was kinda practical. Like creating a center, creating a loud voice. James really helps me with that stuff it’s just a lot about energy, and heightening your energy, grounding it, and being direct. That’s something that doesn’t come that natural to me. So, I’m glad that, if you think that, if you think it worked, that’s good. That makes me feel happy.

We had to ask him about working with a living legend like Kurt Russell, how it was with him on the set, and how he was with the entire cast.

Ah man, everyone on my team, everyone who’s been hanging out with him, they’re either just like, “He’s such a great dude.” And, he really is, man. I’ve heard a few people say like, “It really feels like you guys could be father and son.” And we share a lot of the same passions. He’s a really cool guy. He’s a really open book. Definitely know where you stand with him. He tells it like it is. And, I really like that.

And, you know, obviously he’s like this iconic dude, who I’ve known about him for decades before he ever knew I existed. And so, there’s always that strange moment when you meet someone and you’re a big fan, you won’t, you feel like you have to tell him, because otherwise you try to build a friendship and it’s a little inauthentic, you know? I just said, “Listen, I have to get this part out of the way, but I love you so much. Oh, you’re the best. You’re the best. You’ve always been the best.” And he goes, “Yeah, I know. Thanks.” And, all right, let’s get to it, you know?

Chris Pratt is a pretty funny guy, he’s known for his comedic roles, even in the first film, he’s not your average superhero. We asked about how much does he got to improv while filming, and how much gets left in the finished film.

Yeah. Yeah. For sure. I mean, James is, really knows my voice. And especially in the second movie has written the script in a way that it sounds like stuff I would improv. You know what I mean?

But there are a few jokes that I improv that made it. I think the thing about the thing between my legs had a hand on it. That was improv!

Yeah, and the, I remember in the day we were, I was talking to James about that today, on the day it wasn’t that funny. It was just like we’d done that scene a bunch of times, and they had to do it again because they needed to get something else. And so, I knew they already had whatever the line that was written. They already had it. And so, I knew when they already have it, then I have, that’s my room to play, you know?

We switched things up a bit when one of the bloggers asked Pratt a question her kids wanted to know. They follow the actor on Instagram and wanted to know what’s his favorite snack and what’s Peter Quill’s favorite snack as well.

That’s a good question because, tell them that’s a good question. I’m glad that they asked that, and thanks for following me on what’s my snack? Peter Quill’s shirt in the movie, if you see that’s his favorite snack, because that’s actually a label from, this is a little Easter egg, but from the first movie, there was some candy on the table and I think I’m eating some of the candy. I don’t know if it ever made it in the movie, but he, but James really loved the label, the art department had gone the lengths of creating this language, and created a label for some candy.

And so, he put that label on the shirt. So, that’s like a snack that Peter Quill likes to eat. And I don’t know, I think it had, there’s a real language and it says something. But, that’s probably his favorite snack.

We asked Pratt about how he was able to keep the weight off from the first movie all the way through to this movie since most people have such a hard time with weight.

Well, I gotta be, to be, if I’m gonna be fully authentic, I’m pretty careful about when I reveal myself to the public. So I do it in a way to make you think that I’ve kept it off the entire time, but I haven’t. You know? Seriously, like I kinda keep tight, close to what I need to be, but I have to live my life as well. So, when I do a shirtless scene, or I do a magazine cover, or I do a photoshoot that I know is gonna get a lot of press, I’m, I then dial it in so that I can take a good picture. And so, I really, my, all my eating habits and diet fitness habits are, it’s very shallow of me, but hey, they’re very much based around how I’m gonna be and put myself out there. So, don’t be hard on yourself if you can’t, if people can’t like, if they lose weight and they can’t keep it off.

That’s just really natural. And I think, you know, the best thing, the best way to think about it is not to have a goal of like a weight goal, do you know what I mean? It’s not to say like my goal is 225 pounds. That’s not my goal. My goal is six months. It’s like six months of consistency. Go to the gym, or do something every day for six months. See if I can do that. Like make the goal, a consistency. Like build up a bunch of consistency and make it more of a lifestyle.

We got personal with Chris asking about his work with charity and giving back to the community. He was happy to share with us who inspires him the most in regards to charity.

I actually credit Russell Wilson. I think I saw how he did it, and I was like, this guy’s awesome. Like, he’s open with his faith. He is a superstar quarterback, and I have a pretty healthy and not that secret man crush on him. But like, I saw how he did it, and what he did up at Seattle Children’s Hospital. And, I remember around the time that I got Guardians of the Galaxy.

I remember thinking to myself like, if this thing does what it could potentially do, and there’s a world where it would mean something for me to go do that, I’ll definitely do it. And I think if I credit Russell Wilson, he wouldn’t take the credit. He’d give the glory to God, he would say that… it was his faith. So, I think it’s the same kind of thing. I really love how he does it, and I have to credit some of that with him.

Kurt Russell on Being Cast as Ego, Family Life, and Fatherhood

Kurt Russell on Being Cast as Ego, Family Life, and Fatherhood

I still can’t believe that last year I was on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2. Our small group was on a secret mission to get all the juicy details about the upcoming film to share with our readers. With only one day to get as many details as possible. Our schedule was jam-packed but half way through the day an unexpected request came in and it was from Kurt Russell. He’d heard that “mommy bloggers” were on set interviewing the talent. He wasn’t on our schedule but he wanted to get the opportunity to talk to us as well. Of course, we didn’t say no, we grabbed our bags and headed to his sound stage for a brief impromptu interview.

When we initially spoke with Kurt, we had no idea who his character really was in the film, except that he was playing Peter Quill’s father. We saw some storyboards about the character but it was hard to really visualize how he would appear in the Guardians film. The first thing we asked was for him to tell us about his role.

KR : Yeah, it’s just I’m his father and he’s a man of adventure and it’s a very full role. You have to play a lot of different types of scenes where we are emotionally very different. We get to explore I think a lot of Peter Quill’s past. You’ll learn a lot about where he comes from and why he is what he is and, he’s coming from a position of having wondered about who his father was all his whole life and it’s me.

Kurt’s arrival at into the Marvel Cinematic Universe wasn’t planned at all. While doing press for the Hateful Eight, he got some sage advice from Nic Fury himself, Samuel Jackson, about being in Marvel films and why he should absolutely take advantage of any opportunity to join the MCU.

KR : I was doing a publicity trip for Hateful Eight and suddenly one day all the reporters and whoever else I ran into everybody was saying so are you gonna do Guardians of the Galaxy? I’d never heard of Guardians of the Galaxy. Are you gonna be Peter Quill’s father? And I asked Sam who’s done Fury, he said oh, that’s a little different stuff. He said this is big audiences. I said is it fun?

He said oh, yeah, it’s fun and I started learning about it, I never had been asked about a character before I’d done it as much. I suddenly realized that this movie must have been very popular and for some reason the audience cared about who his father was gonna be. So I said well, gee I don’t know I’ll see what it’s like. I read the script and because I hadn’t been send a script or anything. I didn’t know anything about it. So I said well I’ll read it so I read the script and I said well I need to see the movie. I watched it for about eight or nine minutes.

I was watching it with Goldie and I just immediately — as soon as he kicked one of those things I said, you know, I watched the movie and I got the jest of the feeling of what the Guardians of the Galaxy world is like. I’ve done a lot of movies in the past, connect some dots there. I get very much why I’d be a good person to play the dad with the script that I had. I figured this is gonna be fun to do and it’s turned out to be a blast, really fun. Chris is great and the whole cast is great and James is great. And it’s really fun to always work with someone who really knows what they wanna do and what they wanna show and pull off and try to create. 

We had been asking everyone we talked to on set about the music from the film. They were all mums the word on any of the new music from the mixtape. We wanted to know how music connected Kurt’s character in the movie in relation to Peter’s mother.

KR : It will be quiet important. 

Q : Is there anything else you can give us on that?

KR : A lot more. You gonna get to the movie. There’s a strong connection to music, particular songs. It’s a big part of this world and James continues that theme very, very strongly. 

He didn’t give us much at all, but I honestly believe the mixtape for this film is just as anticipated at the actual movie itself. As you can imagine a lot of this movie is done against a blue screen. We asked Kurt how was it filming against the screen.

KR : You know, it’s funny. I was doing Disney gags. We call them wire gags and this is where we were. We have been the last few days. You can see some of the wires that are left. Wire gags have always been the same ever since probably the 30s and 40s but the technology around the wire gag itself has improved so much and the wires have improved.

They’re on computers now sometimes so you work out what you’re gonna do and they dial it in. You got much better precision but the technology of what they can do around you, that’s improved greatly ‘cause it used to be that you get a line around you and if you moved too much you’d get some rippling effect. It wasn’t very good. But I started doing those in the 60s, early 60s with Disney and they haven’t changed really that much but having said that we’re getting further and further into this world where it’s this and this will look obviously completely different right.

And it’s difficult too, I’ve always been an actor like many actors who respond to their surroundings and if you and I are playing the scene together and I see you have this and I’m talking to you and I see that and I wanna play with that. The spontaneity is different. On a movie like this is really understanding. When we did Tombstone there was a scene where I was walking with Dana Delany. The wind was blowing that day a little bit and so it was blowing some of the cotton woods around, and one was gonna blow on her face so I just picked it like that and it was just part of the scene and it was very organic. It was very good. That won’t happen. So you have to invent that. That’s kind of fun to do.

Making a movie on green screen is very interesting. We wanted to know if any of the actors get an opportunity to see what they are working on before the final editing of the film.

KR : They also have this thing now. It’s called the pre-vis. It’s very valuable. It’s a cheap version of what you’re gonna get that you can look at. Yeah you can see and that can kick your imagination off too however, you’re kind of locked in to what it is so there’s pros and cons here. It can be cool because it makes you feel like you really know how to improve it. Sometimes it would have been nice to have been there from the beginning because I can really improve it. I can do this. Wouldn’t that be great?  Well, that’s a little different. We can’t go there. I can’t do that so okay, so it confides you in some ways but in other ways it, it allows you to kind of see it.

One of the last things we asked Kurt was what did he hope audiences gain from watching the movie. From what we’d learn it has a huge family theme so we had to get his perspective.

KR : Well, good question actually because number one when you’re planning a character I think you try to find things that’ll be entertaining and do the them in a way that’s entertaining, that’s fun to watch and yet in movies like this it’s easy to sort of be frivolous and just look at it as comic book venue and I think comic books, especially science fiction,  allow you to ask the big questions. 

And within the confides of this story, what if you were Peter Quill and this happened to you, this marvel comic book world that Guardians of the Galaxy is and you never knew who your father was, but like real life you have created in your mind someone who put on a pedestal which I think is a very important thing to talk about when you talk about children who don’t know who their parents are. Their father has left or their father never existed or their father was never in their life or maybe he was there for a short while and he left. Are you responsible for that? All those very real human things.

So when you say what do you get out of that, hope to bring for the audience, I do hope to have all the entertainment value that you should get in movie like this but underneath is the reality of when you’re playing it is the reality aspect of the relationship that is important to that person that’s real, that has consequence, that’s not comic book, that’s not cartoon. It’s not funny even though some of it is gonna end up very funny but that’s life. So that’s, you know, that’s why I think one of the reasons James Gunn wants to get Kurt Russell to play the part because I’m gonna go in there and do that.

You can see Kurt Russell in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in theaters May 5th, 2017. Plan ahead and purchase your advanced tickets online now from your favorite ticket retailers including Fandango and AMC.

Chris Pratt Talks Family Life, Kurt Russell, and Being Back on Set

 Chris Pratt Talks Family Life, Kurt Russell, and Being Back on Set

Its been months since I visited the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2. When we sat down to chat with Chris Pratt about the movie, I was expecting it to be a fun interview. He didn’t disappoint at all. He walked in the room greeting us saying “Hey Mommas!” and that’s how we started the interview.

We quickly started asking Chris how he felt being back on set for the movie. He responded saying it felt great. Coming off a string a three movies back to back, he’s a very busy man. He understand how fortunate he was to have had three jobs in a row, sharing he’s been on the road for about thirteen months. His face perked up when he talked about his family.

Oh God, it’s great. This is a long, this movie is coming at the-the end of a long run of jobs that I’ve had. Fortunate to have three movies back to back. James is so good, he knows exactly what he wants.We all know the characters, everyone’s gotten better since the last movie. We, I’d say we’d really had to pick up right where we left off. It just feels like everyone’s on their A game. The days are totally manageable, and the story is spread out enough to where I have days off. Which is really nice, so I’ve been able to actually get home to LA and Anna and Jack, and they can fly out visit me. And it’s like getting a nice warm up for the reentry period for when I go back home.

When we visited set news hadn’t broke yet about Kurt Russell playing Pratt’s character Peter Quill father in the film. We wanted to know what it was like for him to work with the legendary actor.

Man, it’s been fucking awesome!  Not every actor whose been around as long as he’s been around is a joy to work with. And it’s anyone’s right to-to be an asshole on set. Kurt Russell is not, he is so great. I mean, he’s really tough. A lot of people don’t know everything about Kurt Russell, because like he’s like a professional, what was it, a professional baseball player. He broke a World Record, as like a racecar driver as like a teenager. He was a pilot for like 25 years. He actually flew like delivering packages. He has horses and breeds them. He’s like so good.

Pratt liked the actor so much he joked about asking him to be his real father. He laughed saying “no disrespect to my real dad, R.I.P. dad.” We got back into the interview asking how he felt about the direction of his character in the upcoming film. His response – yes, then he shared how he learned about the upcoming film.

When I was first introduced to the story, it was with James. We were sitting and smoking a cigar in his living room, and he was like, okay, here’s the story. So I didn’t get, I didn’t read the script, he told me exactly what was going to happen. It was before the script had been written and when he told I was captivated, I’m so moved and impressed by this story. It’s completely different from the first movie, but similar in that’s it’s really going to surprise people and I think be really good. It’s not going to be one of these sequels that’s just a rehash of what they did in the first movie. It’s taking a big leap forward.

Hearing that story for the first time,I just felt so lucky that he’s the dude in charge of this franchise. Because he has such an awesome idea and is really the only one that could bring that idea to the big screen without screwing it up. So I have a giant sense of… there’s a rush and a relief at the same time.

Soundtracks have a way of adding a different level of passion to movies. The Volume One Soundtrack was awesome, it was one of the first things I asked about during our visit to set. We asked Chris to share with us his thoughts on the soundtrack.

I don’t want to like give away the spoiler. But there is a second tape and just like in the first movie, it absolutely belongs in the movie, you know sometimes how they put songs in movies, just because, hey, this would be really cool song to accompany this scene. That’s fine, but with James the way he’s done it, he’s always allowed the music to be a narrative tool. You know, to get you in the mood, to get you pumped up, and heighten the excitement of the scene or emotion of the scene. But also, he justifies it because it’s a prop in the movie, it didn’t just come out of nowhere. 

I’m telling you, his mom had even better taste and probably a little bit more money in volume two. So the songs are in primo and expertly used without being distracting. And in this movie, once you see the movie, you’ll understand more of what I mean that it’s used even more as a narrative tool than the first one.

We chatted a bit more about the music from Volume One and then asked about his training regime for this film.

I mean, maybe not as much as the first one, because I didn’t have quite as far to go. I was still in kind of good shape for the last couple of movies. This one I am more maintenance than-than like a big deadline, you know what I mean. There was already a shot of this sort of shirtless scene. That was pretty early on and you really kind of like planned for that. After that I’m like long sleeve shirts and leather jacket, so I will go have a little sandwich or something.

null

From there we continued talking about the wardrobe and the various jackets Pratt has to wear during the film. He shared how putting on the costumes helped him feel hilself in the role.

The first time I ever put the duster jacket on, that was the first time I ever really felt like the character. You know they say that old saything that the clothes make the man, but really-really the first time you see yourself, – for me at least as an actor, -when I’m in the wardrobe and I’m looking at myself, and it’s something that I as a person would never really wear, possibly certainly if they going to end up with a long red leather duster, we don’t have one of those in my wardrobe. Other than the one that I stole from the first movie but… when you see yourself in the clothesall of a sudden, the weight of that jacket, the way it moves when you walk, I had like, I found my walk, and I found the feeling of this character for the first time. And Anna says the same thing about her shoes that she wears as character. It’s like she’ll put on the pair of shoes and that’s the first time she really feels it, when she’s literally walking in that person’s shoes.

null

We chatted a bit about items on set he really liked, then went on to ask him about his son visiting set. We wanted to know how he feels about his dad being a superhero.

Oh yeah, he’s been to set a few times and I can’t really tell. It’s like it’s all about perspective, you know, he doesn’t have really a world where he’s lived in where his mom and dad weren’t on TV. It’s like, that’s just a natural thing for him, to see Anna on her show or if an old movie is on or something. It’s just that’s life for him. So he comes to set and mostly he’s excited to see me, but he’s three and a half, four, he’s smart. I think he loves it that there are like women and other children that are on set, or there are new people for him to like meet and show off. It’s like, seeing me is the best thing for him.

Next we asked him what he was hoping people would take away from the movie when they see the film.

I mean the beauty of these movies is that adults love them too. But I think the adults who love them, they love them because it brings them back to Saturday cartoons when they were kids, you know. Or if watched the Star Wars growing up, or you watched like these space adventures growing up, you have the toys, like there’s something really special about that as a kid that you’ll always remember when you’re an adult. Marvel, I think what they’ve done is they’ve made movies that kids are going to love, because it has all the elements that kids love. But also, really great compelling stories that adults will watch and want their kids to see. What I want kids to walk away with is just an experience. It’s less about what they think about us, but more about who they got to go see that movie with. What they’ll always remember the time they went to go see Guardians of the Galaxy with their dad, or their mom, or their uncle. It’s not so much about what’s happening in the movie as much as what’s happening for that kid that day.

We were very curious about Quill’s and Gamora’s relationship in this movie. Everyone so far on set was very tight lipped about it, we asked Pratt hoping he’d spill the beans.

Anything that you felt in the first movie, in terms of relationships, we’re not going back to where we started. We’re picking up where we left off. And so, there are going to be just naturally, some characters are going to be drawn towards others. But there is also a lot of new characters. So without spoiling, without spoiling it, I will say that, you’re likely to get that element, but I won’t say with exactly who that is, or how that, how that comes about. I want you to see it.

I know he didn’t share much but I hope it means there will be a love interest in this film. One of the last things we asked him about was how the character has rubbed off on him.

I think like the clothes, like I said, the clothes make the man. I think like a part of us, we get the freedom as actors, and it’s probably the most rotundas answer you’ve ever heard. When you’re actors you really get the freedom to change who you are. And whether you put on the clothes, or the persona, or the personality, I think it’s something inherently we do as people anyways. We just don’t get credited for it and no one really notices it.

Think about it when you hang out with certain friends you might act one way, or with another group of friends you might act another, like a member of your family, or when you’re with grandma you become another person. It’s like nature I think to survive socially we’re bits, we’re kind of Chameleon, and I think it does change me to be here, my personality having played this character. Now when I go home, I’m a completely different person that I am even right here in this interview. But I’m not, I-I don’t think I’m making a consciences choice to do that.

I think it’s just a natural thing that happens because walking around with guns on our hips, cool galactic boots, so I come across as like a cocky confident dick.

About Guardians of the Galaxy:

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

 

Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which first appeared in comic books in Marvel Super-Heroes, Issue #18 (Jan. 1969), stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, featuring Vin Diesel as Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Nova Prime and Benicio Del Toro as The Collector.
