Chris Pratt is nothing to laugh at - well, most of the time. The actor may be known for his gut-busting comedy, but Pratt revamped his public image when he became a leading action star. The actor transitioned into his new role when Marvel Studios brought him on for Guardians of the Galaxy, and Pratt got a muscular bod to fit the job. When his toned physique was paired with his 6’2 body, fans were left stunned by the actor’s impressive transformation. However, that doesn’t mean Pratt can’t be intimidated Marvel’s other in-shape actors. The star recently learned this when he met another superhero on-set for Avengers: Infinity War.
According to Pratt, the star was more than a little intimidated by the specimen that is Chris Hemsworth. The actor, who is known for playing Thor Odinson, left a big impression on Pratt. The Guardians star says he fell in love with the Australian star - just a little.
Speaking to Fandango, Pratt told the site, “I was a little secretly intimidated.”
“Chris Hemsworth, he’s so tall and handsome -- I had to go home and really look myself in the mirror and say, you know, there’s a possibility that you just might be one of those guys who mostly loves your wife but also kind of loves Chris Hemsworth a little bit too.”
Hopefully, fans will get to see a bit of Pratt’s chemistry with Hemsworth on the big screen with Avengers: Infinity War debuts. Concept art for the film has shown Thor doing battle alongside Rocket, so the Asgardian royal may come into direct contact with Star-Lord as well. If they do, then fans may get to see the former’s man-crush in person.
Avengers: Infinity War is described by Marvel Studios as the culmination of everything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Iron Man in 2008. The movie is filming now under directors Anthony and Joe Russo, from a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
The expansive confirmed cast includes Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bethany, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Pom Klementieff, and Josh Brolin as the villain Thanos. Avengers: Infinity War and its as-yet-untitled sequel are filming back-to-back for a May 4, 2018 and May 3, 2019 release, respectively.
