Swashbuckling Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hero Chris Pratt is a hunk. He’s always been in a hunk (if not quite as abdominally washboardy at every stage of hunkdom) and nothing can change our minds on this. What’s that? You’d like us to look below. Okay.
GOOD LORD! THAT IS HORRIFYING? DID JIGSAW COOK THAT IMAGE UP? Well, it’s actually the handiwork of daytime dancing enthusiast Ellen DeGeneres and it’s much less torture porny of a scenario as it seems.
Pratt popped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show and engaged in some good ol’ fashioned TV fun for our amusement. At Ellen’s request, Pratt stuffed a mouthguard into his gob for a round of Speak Out. That’s the brilliance of shows like Ellen’s. You can’t say no. You’re locked into the silliness, but at least you’re in on the joke most of the time. With apparatus in his mouth, the action megastar was tasked with saying things like “You know, bosses love free doughnuts” with Ellen attempting to decipher what the hell’s going on.
It’s all ridiculous fun, inescapable misunderstandings abound (“I’m gonna bump you” sounds different when your mouth won’t abound) and a handsome movie star looks like he’s suffering from Nicholson Joker’s Smylex poisoning. Why shouldn’t Pratt be extra giggly? Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been laughing all the way to the bank.
