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.

Chris Pratt‘s muscles bulge through his shirt as he leaves Bristol Farms with his reusable shopping bags full of groceries on Sunday afternoon (August 3) in Los Angeles.

The 35-year-old Guardians of the Galaxy star looked happy for good reason – his Marvel film raked in a whopping $94 million in its debut at the box office! The movie broke August box office records with the amazing opening.

“I think there are going to be a lot of people dressed up as Rocket this Halloween, a lot of kids,” Chris said to MTV in a recent interview about Bradley Cooper‘s character in the film. “This is CG unlike anything that I’ve ever seen before, it’s so real. This thing, as funny as it is to have a little talking raccoon with a machine gun running around being an a-hole, what really carries you through is the dramatic reality that there’s nothing else in the universe like him.”
