Chris Pratt plays the hero at children's hospital

Chris Pratt Plays The Hero At Children's Hosptial

Actor Chris Pratt does more than play a superhero in the new Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy, he is a hero.

Marvel and the Children's Miracle Network set up a special screening of Pratt's latest movie at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, and while the movie was playing the 35-year-old snuck out and greeted the audience dressed as his character Peter Quill, or as he prefers to be called "Star Lord."

Pratt stuck around for more than three hours handing out toys to the kids, signing autographs, taking photos, and spending time with children who were too sick to watch the "Guardians" screening. The actor also spent some of his afternoon with Dylan Prunty, a big fan of Pratt's The Lego Movie.

It doesn't seem like this was a publicity stunt organized by Marvel. Before Guardians of the Galaxy even came out he told Panzer TV that he stole his character's costume with the intent of visiting sick children.

Yeah, if the galaxy ever needs guarding, Chris Pratt is the ideal candidate.

Hollywood needs more actors like this. From other things I've read about Pratt he is selfless and kind.

This is what celebrities should do with their fame. At least he's not a belligerent substance abuser twerking at a strip club and getting lap dances.

I seriously hope they edited the movie before showing it to those children. Way too much cursing in the moving and most of it was unnecessary.

Is every thespian mentioned by AOL or its affiliates deemed a "star" or "celebrity"?

Are they not regular jobs akin to any other job?

What is the big deal about the profession?

probably the money involved and the fact they're usually known by a large number of people, which I think is the definition of "celebrity"

While this was very nice of him, as a regular volunteer at a children hospital in a small market, you'd be shocked at the revolving door we have of celebrities who visit. The cool thing is most don't want it to be known they do this on a regular basis. We're talking visits weekly whenever some venue or show is in town. I talked to a famous rocker who explained, if people knew I did this, they'd anticipate it and look for me, taking away from what it's all about..the kids getting a big cheer up.

Pratt should have lunch with the members of the House (Congress), Maybe some of the "niceness" would rub off on them.
