For many, Chris Pratt has firmly cemented himself as The Worst Chris™ (movie edition; Chris Brown exists) for a wide array of offenses like bastardizing our beloved childhood characters, being a member of an anti-LGBTQ church, thanking his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger for their “healthy daughter” while also having a medically fragile son with his ex-wife Anna Faris, and railing against his “woke” critics. Though if you asked him, he’d still probably say it was only because he’s super vocal about loving him some Jesus. The never shutting up about that is undoubtedly part of it, and right on cue, he’s at it again by citing scripture and comparing his struggle with detractors to Jesus’.
Invariably, the worst food you will eat at any given Super Bowl party are nachos. Somebody’s always trying to be cute and do too much. And by the time they come around to you, they are a soggy, sticky mess that have been touched by way too many bare hands and you have no idea what you’re supposed to be eating. You’ll be all “Is this a garbanzo bean? And what is this… pineapple?!?!” Yet apparently, every single one of the movie studios that paid for a spot during yesterday’s game signed up to bring nachos. So we got served a dozen sloppy variations of cheese on chips when all anybody really wants are some hard-fried chicken wings and a cold beer. To which the studios all said “go fish,” and handed us a plate of Tropical Tuna Fiesta Surprise nachos instead (I’m looking at you, Air. Viola Davis is owed an apology).
It’s been a surprising month for unexpected Guardians of the Galaxy reveals. Just last week we learned that Amanda Seyfried turned down the role of Gamora in the GotG film series because she was sure it would flop. Now we’re learning that the character of Star-Lord, played in the GotG film series by Chris Pratt, has been revealed to be a member of the galaxy’s bisexual community. That might be it for big GotG reveals, because I don’t know how “Star-Lord is bi” can possibly be topped. Maybe Groot will get surprise married to a fake IKEA ficus in Las Vegas. For now, we’ve got Star-Lord’s newly-revealed sexuality to discuss!
There are a couple of reasons why an actor might turn down a specific movie role. Maybe they’ve got a 5-year plan to be as rich as Jeff Bezos, and their agent can’t guarantee a big enough paycheck. Or maybe they’re a “real” actor who only chooses roles that fulfill their pursuit of artistic integrity. Or maybe they’re the star of the 2004 film Mean Girls and the 2008 film Mamma Mia!, and they realize that nothing could top such career achievements, so why bother? Well, that’s not how Amanda Seyfried picks and chooses which call sheets her name appears on. But she did recently reveal that she fully turned down a role in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy solely because she thought it was going to bomb, and she didn’t want her name attached to a turkey.
I certainly hope you’re not tired of stories about Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga being single and possibly ready to mingle with each other, because they’re clearly not stopping any time soon. And they’re getting even more random. According to We Got This Covered, Bradley Cooper’s sassy raccoon character is getting a girlfriend in the third Guardians of the Galaxy film, and one of the names being thrown around to play her is Lady Gaga.
Dave Bautista Says That The Thought Of Working For Disney Without James Gunn Is Now “Nauseating” (UPDATE)
The Guardians of the Galaxy movies have made so much money, you might think Dave Bautista, who plays Dax the Destroyer in the series, says a little prayer of thanks to Disney every time he checks his bank balance. But the only thing Dave probably does now when he thinks of Disney is grab a bucket in case he needs something to heave into.
