Jurassic World star Chris Pratt recently received the Generation Award at the 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards, and he is taking his role as an icon to the next generation seriously, well at least a little bit.
In his acceptance speech, the actor shared his 9 hilarious and somewhat serious rules on life.
"No. 1". He said "Breathe. If you don’t, you will suffocate," which seems pretty practical, and then he got into the spiritual side of things- a rare display in Hollywood acceptance speeches.
"No 2: You have a soul be careful with it" and this being Chris Pratt he wrapped serious issues with jokes.
"No. 3 : Don’t be a turd. If you are strong, be a protector. If you are smart, be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons, so do not wield them against the weak. That makes you a bully. Be bigger than than,” he said.
"No. 4 : When Giving a dog medicine, put the medics in a little piece of hamburger and they won’t even know they’re eating medicine. No. 5: It doesn’t matter what it is. Earn it. A good deed. Reach out to someone in pain. Be of service. It feels good and it’s good for your soul.”
And then he got really biblical. “No. 6: God is real. God loves you, God wants the best for you. Believe that; I do."
He then swerved from religion to pooping at parties!" No. 7: If you have to poop at a party, but you’re embarrassed because you’re going to stink up the bathroom, just do what I do. Lock the door, sit down, get all of the pee out first. And then, once all the pee is done, poop, flush, boom! You minimize the amount of time that the poop’s touching the air. Because if you poop first, it takes you longer to pee and then you’re peeing on top of it, stirring up the poop particles, create a cloud, goes out, then everyone at the party will know that you pooped. Just trust me, it’s science."
He then went back to religion “No. 8: Learn to pray. It’s easy, and it is so good for your soul.” and as a parting shot for rule no. 9 he said “Nobody is perfect, People will tell you that you are perfect just the way that you are, you are not! You are imperfect. You always will be, but there is a powerful force that designed you that way, and if you are willing to accept that, you will have grace. And grace is a gift, and like the freedom that we enjoy in this country that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood. Do not forget that. Don’t take that for granted.”
Well said Chris Pratt, certain conservative christians could learn a thing or two from you, certain liberals too.
