Chris Pratt Cements Status As The Galaxy's Coolest Dude By Visiting Kids Hospital As 'Star-Lord'

During the promotional tour for Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris pratt said that he had stolen a number of props from the set in the hope of visiting a children's hospital as Star-Lord. Well, he kept his promise, and we have details and a photo for you after the jump...

We already know that Chris Pratt is a pretty down to Earth and all-round nice guy, but the fact that he stole his costume from the set of Guardians of the Galaxy in order to put it to such good use gives you all the confirmation you'll ever need that he's one of Hollywood's best. Back when he was promoting the movie, Pratt said: "I would love to go if it was a big enough movie to where it would mean something to a kid who was sick, in a hospital, for Peter Quill or Star-Lord to come visit them, I would do that. I think that’s awesome, man. That would be – that would give me real meaning for this movie, you know? Right now it means “high profile,” “cool jobs coming up,” “big press tour” and all the excitement of it all, but none of that really means anything. The coolest thing would be that my son can one day see this and that maybe I could go affect some kids in a positive way and be a good role model for them." Well, courtesy of E! Online/The Wrap, here's the story (and a pretty great photo) of what happened next...

According to the site, Pratt worked with Marvel and Children's Miracle Network Hospital to set up a special screening of Guardians of the Galaxy for patients at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. He would then go on to spend a whopping three hours in costume as Star-Lord, handing out toys, taking photos, signing autographs, and talking with patients (he even visited those in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, the Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases and the Pediatric ICU who were too sick to attend the screening). Despite being there to represent Marvel and Guardians of the Galaxy, the actor spent a little extra time with a fan of The LEGO Movie reciting lines from the hit animated flick. More details can be found by clicking the link below, but I think it's fair to say that Chris Pratt is definitely one of the coolest people in the Galaxy...

This Chris Pratt is so hot right now.
CommanderShepard - 8/21/2014, 1:26 PM
Now that is fricking awesome!

So if he walks into the room and says "Hi, Im StarLord" do they get a puzzled look and say "Who?"

Love him in Parks, and loved him in Galaxy. I hope he gets to be in Avengers 3. THAT'D be awesome. He obviously has a huge heart.

Are you going to make an article about GOTG taking the top spot yesterday in the US box office?

Apparently he also screened Guardians of the Galaxy at the hospital and watched it with the kids.

I just realized my son is playing with two Chris Pratt Lego mini figures right now.
homodrome - 8/21/2014, 1:43 PM
I keep thinking it won't be possible for him to be more likable and sexy and then he does shit like this! God damn it Chris Pratt! I have a job, I can't sit here imagining our imaginary life together!

Most don't want Gus visiting...

tomasocelot - 8/21/2014, 1:56 PM
Gusto does the samething except he is dressed as a the janitor and he leaves a lego trail to the basement.
McGee - 8/21/2014, 1:58 PM
Chuck E Cheese may have booted Gusto out after three strikes. But Disneyland straight up discriminates!

TheGoddamnPeel - 8/21/2014, 1:59 PM
Never saw anything of Chris Pratt before Guardians of Galaxy, but because of small things like this, I really want to see more of him. He seems like one of those few movie actors who don't solely care about the money, and care more about how they are seen and what they can do with their wealth and influence. Good on Chris Pratt.
edmundo - 8/21/2014, 1:59 PM
Bravo Chris Pratt
seamuskeaneart - 8/21/2014, 1:59 PM
I wonder is this a studio mandated PR stunt/ photo op, because all of the stars of the marvel movies have done this.

or maybe im just cynical
ChowdaHead - 8/21/2014, 1:59 PM
Such a good dude.
McNyagano - 8/21/2014, 2:03 PM
Awesome!Good man. Also is this real?
