Chris Pratt Apologizes in Advance for Potential ‘JurassicGate’ and Misbehaving on Press Tour.

So here’s something you don’t see everyday: It’s 90-plus degrees on a June afternoon in New Orleans, and Chris Pratt is wrestling a little person named Marty in the parking lot of an abandoned Six Flags.The “Parks and Recreation” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” star issued a lengthy, rambling apology on Facebook Friday, but he wasn’t apologizing for anything he’d done — he was preemptively apologizing for what he might do while promoting the upcoming “Jurassic World.” “I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming #JurassicWorld press tour,” Pratt wrote. “I am not in the business of making excuses.Chris Pratt won’t say if he’s in talks to play Indiana Jones, but did say he doesn’t “want to be the guy who f—s that up.” Credit: Steve Granitz/WireImage Being cast to step into an iconic role can be a great honor and career boost when done right (Daniel Craig as James Bond, anyone?), but there is always the risk of screwing things up. (Remember George Clooney’s Batman?In addition to serving as this month’s GQ cover star, “Jurassic World” star Chris Pratt kindly volunteered to shoot a video sharing some of his acting tips with the world.

Things didn’t go exactly to plan: “We’re at the end of a GQ photoshoot and we’re supposed to do an acting DVD, acting video kind of bit for YouTube,” the Jurassic World star explains to the camera. “Truth is, it’s hot as hell and I’m drunk.” I am just dumb.” It’s possible Pratt’s apology is meant to reference, in part, the brouhaha surrounding the “Avengers,” when actors Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans apologized after making “tasteless” jokes about a female “Avengers” character in April. Well, that’s a very valid question, especially since Pratt hasn’t actually done anything to be sorry for, but he might, and that’s why he’s saying sorry. Or maybe, with his propensity for drinking bottles of whiskey during promotional videos, he figures its best to cover his bases before embarking on his “global press blitz.” “With social media the way it is and click bait marketing online you will have a front row seat to all of the promotional action if you so chose,” he writes, before warning, “There will be a lot.

Here’s another one of the star’s acting tips, “If you’re playing a parent and your child asks you where babies came from, you simply tell them the truth. While Pratt, 35, won’t say whether the rumors are true, he did share his thoughts about taking on the role Harrison Ford made famous with 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark. “You have to look at it and be like, ‘Is this right for me?’” Pratt told Entertainment Weekly. “And is it perfect? So today, here in this empty parking lot that the filmmakers have transformed into the main street of Jurassic World—complete with a Margaritaville and a Starbucks—all hell is breaking loose as swooping pteranodons begin dive-bombing tourists. But that’s up to you.” Fortunately, he already has a plan for those who might feel overwhelmed by the hoopla surrounding a blockbuster release: “If it gets old or you grow weary of my face just remember, you could always do what I did while waiting for the original Jurassic Park to open, go outside and play with imaginary dinosaurs!

With Saturday Night Live on hiatus for the summer, —who at 21 is the youngest member of the current cast—spent last night watching the first two movies and live-tweeting his foul-mouthed appreciation for the Boy Who Lived throughout. Marty, a professional stuntman, is standing in for said dinosaur, which is how he ends up being roughed up by a hunky Star-Lord. “People in the press have asked me about some of the most surreal moments shooting,” says Pratt. “There’s been so many of them that you draw a blank. He may have intended to watch more than two of the movies (he at one point during the night revealed he had read the first four books but stopped when the movies came out), but ultimately gave in to the need to sleep.

When I do (potentially) commit the offensive act for which I am now (pre) apologizing you must understand I (will likely have been) tired and exhausted when I (potentially) said that thing I (will have had) said that (will have had) crossed the line. “Those rooms can get stuffy and the hardworking crews putting these junkets together need some entertainment! (Likely) that is who I was trying to crack up when I (will have had) made that tasteless and unprofessional comment. Khloé Kardashian and former Lakers player were spotted arriving separately for a late dinner date together at Casa Vega in Sherman Oaks, Calif., last night around 11:45 p.m. (gotta love that fourth meal), and were reportedly dining at the popular Mexican restaurant until 1:30 a.m. Their outing instantly sparks questions as to whether or not there’s a romantic relationship brewing between the two stars, but when asked if the twosome are dating by a paparazzo, Fox responded, “Khloé’s a good friend.” The 30-year-old E! star has famously been on-and-off with rapper French Montana following her highly publicized divorce to fellow former Laker player Lamar Odom. In fact, she said, she finds it “awkward” when people ask about the status of their romance. “I don’t know what to say any more, because people go up and down in relationships.

In fact in my opinion it was never right to say the thing I definitely don’t want to but probably will have said.” The funnyman concludes, “To those I (will have) offended please understand how truly sorry I already am. I am fully aware that the subject matter of my imminent forthcoming mistake, a blunder (possibly to be) dubbed ‘JurassicGate’ is (most likely) in no way a laughing matter. You aren’t just following dreams, you’re reaching for your destiny.” “Now that you’ve made your choice—or, rather, succumbed to it—your path is clear,” he continued. “Not easy, but clear. Big deal! “Rejection might sting, but my feeling is that often, it has very little to do with you,” De Niro continued. “When you’re auditioning or pitching, the director or producer or investor may have someone different in mind, that’s just how it is.

It seems the director is always right.” “You’re not responsible for the entire job, but your part in it,” he added. “You will put your everything into everything you do. Whether you’re working for Federico Fellini or Martin Scorsese, your commitment and your process will be the same.” “Did you get straight A’s in school?” he inquired rhetorically. “If you did, good for you, congratulations. They must be doing it because Obama’s president’ and ‘It’s not true to the comic.’ Or even, ‘They’ve destroyed it!’ “It used to bother me, but it doesn’t anymore. I can see everybody’s perspective, and I know I can’t ask the audience to forget 50 years of comic books,” Jordan continues. “But the world is a little more diverse in 2015 than when the Fantastic Four comic first came out in 1961.
