Chris Pratt Tells 'British GQ' That Filming 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Forced Him To Deal With His Father's Death

Chris Pratt is opening up about dealing with the loss of his father Daniel while filming his anticipated film Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

“The truth is I ripped open some wounds that had been healing for some time. And I didn’t want to. But I knew it was right for the moment, the 37-year-old actor reveals in the January issue of British GQ, on sale Monday (December 5). “There are wounds that are never going to be totally healed. It would probably make for a better story if it was some emotional thing that I hadn’t dealt with… When we face the death of a parent, you sometimes feel regret that you didn’t fully embrace what you had.”

On his audition for Guardians of the Galaxy with director James Gunn: “Within a minute he knew it was me and I knew it was me. And then he just said, any questions? I was like, ‘how much f***ing time do you have? Like, yeah, tell me everything. Tell me the script scene by scene, starting now, to the end, because you f***ing people won’t let me read it. So yeah, I have questions, I have nothing but f***ing questions.’”

On being a struggling actor: “Life was a series of choices based on the price backwards on the menu, when you didn’t look at, ooh, what do I want, you look at the lowest number, that’s what you’re going to get. The difference between a large soda and a small soda was the 49 cents, and you didn’t spend the 49 cents. I heard someone say to me if it’s a problem that can be solved by money, it’s not a real problem. And I thought what kind of f***ing asshole would come up with that?”
