Chris Pratt is everywhere right now — including the cover of EW’s Must Issue — but with a massive press tour for Jurassic World on the horizon, he’s about to become ubiquitous. The risk involved with that kind of media saturation is not lost on Pratt himself, who posted a Facebook note on Friday pre-apologizing for anything offensive he might say in the coming weeks.
“I am not in the business of making excuses. I am just dumb. Plain and simple,” Pratt wrote. “I try. I REALLY try! When I do (potentially) commit the offensive act for which I am now (pre) apologizing you must understand I (will likely have been) tired and exhausted when I (potentially) said that thing I (will have had) said that (will have had) crossed the line.”
Pratt’s full pre-apology is below.
I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming #JurassicWorld press tour. I hope you understand it was never my intention to offend anyone and I am truly sorry. I swear. I’m the nicest guy in the world. And I fully regret what I (accidentally will have) said in (the upcoming foreign and domestic) interview(s).
I am not in the business of making excuses. I am just dumb. Plain and simple. I try. I REALLY try! When I do (potentially) commit the offensive act for which I am now (pre) apologizing you must understand I (will likely have been) tired and exhausted when I (potentially) said that thing I (will have had) said that (will have had) crossed the line. Those rooms can get stuffy and the hardworking crews putting these junkets together need some entertainment! (Likely) that is who I was trying to crack up when I (will have had) made that tasteless and unprofessional comment. Trust me. I know you can’t say that anymore. In fact in my opinion it was never right to say the thing I definitely don’t want to but probably will have said. To those I (will have) offended please understand how truly sorry I already am. I am fully aware that the subject matter of my imminent forthcoming mistake, a blunder (possibly to be) dubbed “JurassicGate” is (most likely) in no way a laughing matter. To those I (will likely have had) offended rest assured I will do everything in my power to make sure this doesn’t happen (again).
In addition to the advanced mea culpa, Pratt also posted about Jurassic World on his Facebook page. He’s happy with the result.
Saw it last night and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!
This is a motion picture so beautifully executed by Colin Trevorrow and the people at Universal it left me utterly speechless. It’s a huge project in every aspect, a massive commercial undertaking that should be witnessed in IMAX theatre if possible based simply on the magnitude of its technological accomplishment. The story is fantastic, the characters compelling, the action is earned and truly unprecedented. Grab your kids, family, friends, girlfriends, boyfriends, grandparents, mailmen, etc., get some popcorn and create a memory y’all will cherish forever.
Jurassic World is out on June 12.
