I think any man over 250 pounds rollerblading is instant hilarity. There's nothing funnier than a giant, grown man rollerblading.— Chris Pratt
The most impressive Chris Pratt quotes that are proven to give you inner joy
I like to do 'Garfield Mondays': lasagna and napping in a box.
The American audience has really opened up to women being A.
) funny and B.) kinda crude. 'Bridesmaids' is R-rated, and I think it was a major coup for women to have an R-rated comedy that did really well. Same as 'Bad Teacher.'
I don't have any delusions. I don't think I would make it through Navy SEAL training.
As an actor it's always easier to shave or cut your hair for a role, but it's hard to put fake hair on or grow hair for a role.
Being in good physical shape is the best way to combat depression.
You just have endorphins running around your body. It is the best anti-depressive that there is.
Just be comfortable with who you are.
My favorite way to blow off steam is to sing obnoxiously loud in the shower.
I have a pet lizard named Puff, five goldfish - named Pinky, Brain, Jowels, Pearl and Sandy, an oscar fish named Chef, two pacus, an albino African frog named Whitey, a bonsai tree, four Venus flytraps, a fruit fly farm and sea monkeys.
You get to a point where you have to start planning, when you cross that line where you have enough value to get someone's movie made if you attach yourself to it, you have to be very thoughtful and have to plan. When you're starting out, you're willing to do anything.
It's really nice to have someone who's intelligent and articulate to talk to about what you're doing, because it's a big part of who we are.
I have a lot of plants and fish and a pet lizard and Venus flytraps.
I have a whole ecosystem in my room, like a running waterfall and different lights and sensors set on digital timers.
You know, I just tend to grow my beard out for 'Parks and Rec.
' As an actor it's always easier to shave or cut your hair for a role, but it's hard to put fake hair on or grow hair for a role. When you look at pictures of me, the longer my hair is, the longer my facial hair is, that's just the longer I haven't gotten a job.
I have some weird habits. For instance, I love beets. Show me a salad bar and I will clean them out of their beets.
I would definitely not rule out doing television in the future because I think it's a great medium for telling stories. And it can also be practically very nice for a family man to have 9 months out of the year where you're in the city, where you're close to your home.
You can pour melted ice cream on regular ice cream. It's like a sauce!
Actors come up and just blatantly hit on my wife in front of me and don't even look at me.
Film is cool because it's an hour and a half to two hours.
It's a great ride. It's typically three acts - beginning, middle and end. It's going on an adventure and by the end it's all cleaned up.
Perfect sandwich? Two slices of white bread, mustard, mayo and a platinum American Express card.
The big challenge for me was just trying to ignore the embarrassment of being an actor. It's a pretty embarrassing thing to do. You've got people pointing cameras at you and hundreds of people watching you, as you're trying to be great. And often, almost every time, you're not.
Leslie, I typed your symptoms into the thing up here and it says you could have network connectivity problems.
The challenge is not finding the attitude, but it's really just being open and willing to go for it and try different things, and having a director that you can trust. The attitude is not something that I intended or created.
With comedy, it's a combination of knowing the comedic beat was good - it made you laugh, it made people on the crew laugh. With drama, you do something deep and if your stuff was really effective, the ultimate result is silence. Silence is not necessarily... that would also be the result if you sucked.
I loved to always get naked. I was very free, so I thought, I may as well get paid.
Some people fast, some people go on a cruise or visit a day spa.
I get out in the woods with a rifle or a bow. That's my release.
Just be yourself and forget all of the stuff you read in 'GQ' magazine.
To go to the Oscars for 'Moneyball' - that was pretty amazing.
I always thought when I was doing more melodramatic stuff like Everwood that the directors were constantly reeling me in and stopping me from being funny. I've always tried to find a funny angle on things, and 99 percent of the time, it just doesn't work.
America is at war. Go eat a donut.
Most of the writers in TV are from L.
A. or New York, and those are places where people are cynical and snarky. And they fly from L.A. to New York in an airplane over this vast, expansive land where people aren't snarky; they're a lot more like the Parks and Recreation characters.
You can't help but change when you have a kid, and for me it was just a sense of I didn't feel like anything was missing in my life and it wasn't. It all came at just the right time, and now if I am absent from my son, I do feel like something is missing.
I surprised myself with my ability to run.
It's kind of like tippy toe running. I would not be able to outrun Indominus Rex, but with enough practice I might be able to make it 40 or 50 feet before I was killed.
Television is such an evolving medium.
Both 'OC' and 'Everwood,' there were people on set where you learned to stay away from them on a bad day.
I've eaten weird things through the course of my life.
I've eaten wild game, I've eaten possum - possum's no good.
I lose my cell phone so much that I switch it every month or so, but Sony Ericsson is usually what I use.
The key is just to ignore the pain, because physical comedy only works if you see someone get hurt and they aren't actually hurt. If someone gets hit in the face with a bat, falls down, and gets back up, it's funny. If they stay down and their jaw is wired shut in the next scene, it's really tragic and weird. You have to pretend it doesn't hurt.
Celebrity is intoxicating.
I'd love to work with Steve Martin. I'd love to work with Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd.
A good corroborating chain, if they fail in the last link, the whole will fall to the ground.
When you're working with film, you can only shoot one angle at a time, and then everything has to stop, and you re-light it and shoot everything else from the opposite side, so it's really important that you stick exactly to what's written. But with the multi-camera digital setup, you're getting both sides of the scene at the same time, so it gives you that freedom to go off-book.
I'm still fighting really hard to get any role I get.
If it's comedy, I go for the laughs. And if it's drama, I try to tell the truth, and try to play the real stakes of whatever scenario the character's in.
When you look at pictures of me, the longer my hair is, the longer my facial hair is, that's just the longer I haven't gotten a job.
To go to the Oscars for 'Moneyball' - that was pretty amazing.
And to be able to go work with Kathryn Bigelow - that's going to be pretty sweet. Hopefully I don't have to go back to being a waiter. That's still my main goal.
I love 'Capote.' Huge fan of Philip Seymour Hoffman; if he's not my all-time favorite actor he's definitely in my top five. I just love him so much.
In TV, you can really get into not only great characters, but also the relationships. There are all of the backstories and all of the relationships that you have with every person in your life, and the relationships those people have with each other. It's just more dense and there's more time to tell stories.
I'm happy to try any genre, from drama to comedy and anything in between.
Although, to be fair, for most of my career, I've been at the mercy of what people are willing to put me in.
Nick Offerman is my hero. He just cracks me up. He's so funny, but he's a true actor, too - he's bringing so much when he's onscreen.
I know that me personally I'm different than anyone else, just like our mothers all tell us we're all very special and unique and we are, and I think if an actor can stick to trying to make the character resemble something from their own spirit it will automatically be unique.
If you wait for things to be perfect you'll just miss out on life.
