‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’ Movie Update: Chris Pratt Admits He Thought His Acting Was Bad
“Guardians of the Galaxy 2” is still a couple of years from hitting theaters. While it could take awhile before fans could see Star Lord, Groot, Gamora, Drax and Rocket back for another mission. Chris Pratt admitted that he encountered difficulties while filming the first installment to the franchise and thought his acting was bad. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
“Guardians of the Galaxy 2” will not hit theatres anytime soon. While all that is known about the sequel is its release date as well as a family-centric plot, fans cannot help but look forward to the upcoming sequel. While the movie was an unexpected blockbuster hit, Chris Pratt revealed that he had a hard time working his character, Star Lord and working with the film’s director, James Gunn.
“James Gunn had a hard time working with me for about the first half of the movie,” Pratt revealed to GQ magazine.
Pratt recounted that these difficulties in working with Gunn and transpiring his acting skills for the movie made him doubt his own abilities as an actor. Pratt revealed that he also hated whenever Gunn would scream, ”Louder, faster” at him, but he would later on realize that such things were necessary to get the best out of the movie.
James Gunn, on the other hand, confessed that he was trying to test Pratt’s acting skills and bring out the best in him. The director admitted that Pratt thought that his way of acting and performing comedic stunts in the past would work in the movie; unfortunately, for Gunn, it did not.
“Chris just didn’t trust himself to just be Chris Pratt – and how desirable that is to an audience,” Gunn said.
The director also remarked that Pratt needed to learn how to balance being the center of a movie to fading in on the background, which according to him, is the mark of being a movie star.
“Guardians of the Galaxy 2” hits theatres on July 18, 2017. Stay tuned on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more news on your favorite celebrities, TV shows, and movies.
