AceShowbiz - Chris Pratt and his "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" co-stars appeared as guests in Monday, April 17 episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!". Joining Chris on the show to promote the flick were Zoe Saldana, Kurt Russell, Michael Rooker and Dave Bautista.
When asked whether their kids went "nuts" knowing their parents were involved in such an awesome superhero movie, Chris revealed an interesting story about his 4-year-old son Jack. "My favorite memory from [shooting] this movie [was when] my little guy got to come to set," the proud dad said. "Our director, James [Gunn], his nephew Will was there, and we got to tour them around the 'Guardians' spaceship."
Chris went on saying that Jack was extremely awed by the behind-the-scenes look at the movie, which was shot at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. However, it's not until he came across Chris' Peter Quill's ship in the movie, he realized how cool his dad was.
"You saw it in his eyes, he thought, 'I've seen this on TV or in the movie, but I guess my dad really does fly a spaceship for work!' " Chris recounted. "And I was like, 'Yes, son, yes I do,' " he continued. Michael later added, "It was just absolutely adorable. You look at their eyes and they're going, 'Wow!' "
Apparently, it was not only Chris who got the perks of being a cast member of the superhero movie. Zoe had her own story about how her kids saw her character, green-skinned Gamora, as well as how it helped her in terms of parenting.
"My kids think that I'm related to the Hulk," the actress opened up, referring to Gamora's green skin color which resembled the Hulk. "So I'm using it and I'm getting them to eat their vegetables… I go behind this wall and I go, 'I'm gonna call the Hulk, 'cause you guys are not eating your veggies and he's gonna come and take your toys,' " she revealed.
Zoe also showed how she roared to scare her kids and make them stop picky eating. It worked as the actress shared that after she made the scary voice, their kids ate the vegetables. Host Jimmy Kimmel quipped, "Not too many parents have that as a real threat," bringing laughter to the set.
In the episode, the cast was also asked whether or not they would appear in "Avengers: Infinity War". Instead of directly answering the question, the cast were all pretending that they didn't even know if such movie existed. Chris even joked, "We are shooting a scene right now. This is going to be in it."
The cast were having fun on the show as they participated in a game show where they needed to answer trivia questions about each other to win bags of ice. They also recounted the story when they promoted the first movie. "I remember overwhelmingly people in the press when we were promoting the first movie. The question that they always asked was like, 'So, you know, no one knows who 'Guardians of the Galaxy' are. Doesn't that freak you out? You might be in Marvel's big flop,' " Chris opened up. He later admitted that he was pretty nervous at that time.
