"It could be much worse," he joked.

Lawrence -- who was wearing Schutz shoes -- insisted that the actor is "much, much nicer" and "more positive" than herself. The 26-year-old actress recalled that when filming Passengers, she had a bit of "paranoia mixed with delusions" about getting into the harness and the 75-pound spacesuit, so Pratt "took care of all the harness work."

"I thought that if I were in a harness that I would never be able to bear children," she quipped. "I complained a lot."

Passengers, which hits theaters Dec. 21, is set in a spacecraft that is traveling to a distant colony planet and transporting thousands of people, but has a malfunction in its sleep chambers. As a result, two passengers (Pratt and Lawrence) are awakened 90 years early, and strike up a romance.

While there's no denying Pratt and Lawrence's onscreen chemistry, Scott Eastwood revealed that he lost out to the 37-year-old actor for the role of Jim. Pratt told ET that he can sympathize with getting passed up for parts. "Oh my gosh, there is so many roles that I have lost out to other actors," he admitted. “Yeah, for years and years, and years I auditioned. I auditioned for things and lost out constantly. Yeah, this is part of the deal, you know, it is part of the deal, and you find out that a lot of times that is the way that it's meant to be."
