Turns out Chris Pratt was right to post that pre- apology. He’s totally stepped in it now. If by “stepped in it” you mean “wasn’t entirely sure about the definition of a word and used it in a way that is slightly embarrassing, but ultimately totally charming as is everything Chris Pratt does.”
See Pratt has been pretty open about his weight, his weight loss and the physical and emotional effects of losing that weight. He was even open enough to talk about the terrible side effects he experience because of his weight
“I was impotent, fatigued, emotionally depressed. I had real health issues that were affecting me in a major way,” he told the mag. “It’s bad for your heart, your skin, your system, your spirit.”
Then apparently someone explained what “impotent” meant. And that was not what he was trying to say.
“I’m not sure I knew what ‘impotent’ meant when I said it,” he said. “I had a lower sex drive, to be honest with you. Everything about my spirit was dull. I didn’t feel great, and I think people will relate to that.”
1.) Ordinarily I would argue that most celebrities would find it less embarrassing to admit they didn’t know what “impotent” means than to actually be impotent, and that this is therefore just a cover. But I believe it from Pratt. Which might be because:
2.) I’m more and more convinced everyday that Andy Dwyer and Chris Pratt are the same person. And I love everything about that. For instance, I refuse to believe that this isn’t the first thing Pratt says to Anna Faris when he gets home every night.
You are, Chris. You’re doing this tour really, really well. If you keep it up, when this is all over we can celebrate any way you’d like.
