Chris Pratt – bonafide action star, devoted husband and father, former television heartthrob and…world’s best travel companion?
The star-studded cast of The Magnificent Seven, which includes Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke and Peter Saarsgard, have been on a globe-trotting promotional tour for their new Western reboot with stops in Venice, Toronto and New York, and while this many actors in one room may have their differences, they could all agree on one thing: Chris Pratt is their favorite cast member to travel with.
“Chris Pratt is about the most fun a human being is allowed to be,” Hawke quickly responded at a New York screening when asked who was the most magnificent co-star to travel the world with.
“The guy always has a sense of humor, and he’s always gung ho and giving a hundred and twenty percent. I walk away really having a lot of respect for him,” he added.
“He’s good natured,” Sarsgaard said as to why Pratt was also his choice. “The rest of us have temperamental sides. Especially me."
“He keeps it fun,” director Antoine Fuqua explained. “He’s always cracking jokes and laughing, he’s great to be around.”
Washington was quick to admit he didn’t travel on the same planes as the rest of the cast all the time, but he did have one standout.
“I’ve been with Chris most of the time,” the Oscar-winner stated. “He’s cool.”
A simple response, but coming from Washington, that’s saying quite a lot.
Vincent D’Onofrio, on the other hand, had just two words to describe everyone’s favorite travel buddy: “Handsome and talented.”
“Oh really?!” enthused Pratt, who was actually surprised to hear he was everyone’s pick.
The Guardians of the Galaxy actor had a bit more trouble than his castmates when it came to making his choice.
“I had a good time travelling with all of them, you know, it's hard to pick,” the actor confessed. “We are all like a big family.”
A collective “awe” was suddenly heard around the world.
The Magnificent Seven gallops into theaters on Friday.
