Chris Pratt Dresses Up as Star-Lord and Goes to Children's Hospital

Chris Pratt previously admitted to taking his Star-Lord costume from the Guardians of the Galaxy set. His plan was to use the costume to bring some joy to the lives of kids who are in the hospital. Pratt doesn't just talk the talk, but he walks the walk as well. He took what he said he would do and put it into action.

E! reports that Pratt coordinated an event with Marvel and Children's Miracle Network Hospital to provide a special screening of Guardians of the Galaxy for an audience who may have not been able to see it due to their illnesses. They screened the film yesterday for the patients, families, and staff of Children's Hospital Los Angeles. As you can see in the photos, Pratt also came out in-character to spend time with the kids afterwards as Star-Lord.

The photo above was released by the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, and it shows the actor dressed up as Star-Lord and hanging out with the kids. He spent three hours, playing with the them, taking photos, signing autographs, and giving out movie-themed toys. 

In the photo below Pratt is seen playing with Dylan "Lego Kid" Prunty whose Make-A-Wish wish was for a LEGO replica of the hospital, which can be seen in the background. Pratt reportedly reenacted scenes from The LEGO Movie with Prunty, and also signed some of Prunty's prized swag. 

It's kind of hard not to get a little choked up as I write this. Pratt is truly a stand-up guy. 

He talks about taking the jacket in the interview below at the 4:30 mark.
