After a series of bungled interviews by the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast during last month’s press tour, one star appears to be taking heed, and is prepared for anything.
Actor Chris Pratt has issued an advanced apology to Jurassic Park fans for anything he says or does during the upcoming press tour for the fourth installment of the popular franchise, saying “I am just dumb.”
Although he has nothing to be sorry for as of yet, Pratt apparently wants people to know that he really does care about his fans, and that something is bound to go wrong during the tour.
“I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming #JurassicWorld press tour,” he began. “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),” he added.
Pratt broke into the film industry with supporting roles in mainstream flicks, such as Zero Dark Thirty, The Five-Year Engagement, Wanted, and Moneyball.
He hit leading man status in 2014 upon acting in the blockbuster films The Lego Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy, and will star in Jurassic World.
His preemptive Facebook apology also reads:
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).
Press tours are not always full of good press. Avengers: Age of Ultron Stars Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, and Chris Evans all found that out the hard way, after a series of interviews turned into apologies regarding everything from walkouts to what some called sexist jokes.
Jurassic World is set to hit theaters on July 12.
