Chris Pratt likes doing his own stunts on movies but got hurt "a lot" while making 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom'
Chris Pratt got hurt "a lot" while making 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom'.
The 38-year-old actor relishes being able to do his own stunts because they make him feel like a "professional athlete" but he's well aware the gruelling physical tricks are not without risk.
He admitted to Closer magazine: "I actually got hurt a lot making 'Jurassic World'. I popped my elbow out, pulled both my hamstrings and did something to my heel.
"There were a lot of injuries but I got through it with a lot of ice and ibruprofen - it was all worth it.
"This was the closest I will ever get to being a professional athlete, which is a big deal for me."
Chris - who has five-year-old son Jack with estranged wife Anna Faris - is constantly amazed by his success and never knows when it will end.
He laughed: "Yeah I always knew [I'd be famous]. No, I never would have even dreamt it. No way.
"It's a pretty rarified space to be in, so I'm feeling very blessed and overcome with joy right now.
"I still just keep pinching myself and expecting it all to be a dream.
"Even now, when I am on set working, I'm like, 'Don't blow it and f**k it up.' Because I feel like I'm about to get found out at any minute."
Chris recently admitted he thinks 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' is the perfect form of escapism.
He said: "Science and technology and profit ... it's a dangerous mix. And so if you put them all together, if you look at how it's relevant, you can point to a lot of areas in the world today where those three things are being mixed in a way that's potentially catastrophic.
"That's why we need amazing, two-hour chunks of entertainment at the movies. So come and enjoy our catastrophe so you can escape your own."
