Chris Pratt Visits Kids at the Hospital as Star-Lord
If you’re looking for another reason to love Chris Pratt, you’re in luck.
The ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ star took some time off his busy schedule to go visit sick kids at the hospital on Wednesday dressed as his character in the blockbuster movie.
Peter Quill, or Star-Lord as his character would prefer to be called, roamed the halls of the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital and from the photo the hospital tweeted, it made the kids’ day.
“Star Lord (@prattprattpratt) cheered up our patients by sharing #GuardiansOfTheGalaxy! Thanks for making them smile!,” noted the hospital alongside a photo of Pratt next to a patient wearing his character’s leather jacket.
What makes this an even better story is that Pratt initially took the costume home from the set already anticipating the chance to do some good with it.
“If it was a big enough movie, to where it would mean something to a kid who’s sick in the hospital for Peter Quill or Star-Lord to come visit them, I’ll do that,” said he actor in an interview for Panzer TV in July about him stealing the costume from the studio. “I think that’s awesome, man.”
A small act of disobedience to promote a much greater good. Peter Quill would be so proud.
