Chris Pratt to 'Esquire': I Didn't Picture Myself Getting 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Role

Chris Pratt looks so good in a suit on the cover of Esquire magazine’s September 2014 issue, on newsstands August 12.

Here’s what the 35-year-old Guardians of the Galaxy actor had to share with the mag:

On his Guardians audition: “When Guardians of the Galaxy was pitched to me, I said,’I don’t think so.’ I just didn’t picture myself getting the role. I didn’t want to go and embarrass myself like I did when I auditioned for G.I. Joe a couple of years previously. I went in there, and halfway through I saw the director’s eyes just glaze over. It made sense—I was a little heavy and out of shape. I was not gonna play someone from G.I. Joe. I did not look like a G.I. Joe action figure come to life.”

On coming up with jokes: “I’ve always pretended to improv. Sneaking in a joke like I’ve stumbled on it, coming up with good comebacks for things that haven’t even happened. My whole life I’ve done that.”

FYI: Chris is wearing a Burberry London suit.
