What makes stars walk out of press interviews (yes, we are referring to a certain Robert Downey Jr) and then go on to humiliate the journalist in question (Ironman, still on him)?
Being asked similar questions over and over again, and in case of Hollywood stars - in various languages of the world.
Chris Pratt, who is the lead star in one of the prospective money-spinners this summer Jurassic World, knows these situations are about to happen to him as he gets ready for promotions and he's sorry, in advance.
In a heart-felt and witty Facebook post, the Guardians of the Galaxy star wrote, "I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming ?#?JurassicWorld? press tour. I hope you understand it was never my intention to offend anyone and I am truly sorry. I swear. I'm the nicest guy in the world. And I fully regret what I (accidentally will have) said in (the upcoming foreign and domestic) interview(s)."
He says all the (accidental) offence must be caused by one, and one, reason alone - he is plain dumb. "I am not in the business of making excuses. I am just dumb. Plain and simple. I try. I REALLY try! When I do (potentially) commit the offensive act for which I am now (pre) apologizing you must understand I (will likely have been) tired and exhausted when I (potentially) said that thing I (will have had) said that (will have had) crossed the line."
He also coins the name for the blunders he would be committing while on tour - 'JurassicGate'. "Those rooms can get stuffy and the hardworking crews putting these junkets together need some entertainment! (Likely) that is who I was trying to crack up when I (will have had) made that tasteless and unprofessional comment. Trust me. I know you can't say that anymore. In fact in my opinion it was never right to say the thing I definitely don't want to but probably will have said. To those I (will have) offended please understand how truly sorry I already am. I am fully aware that the subject matter of my imminent forthcoming mistake, a blunder (possibly to be) dubbed "JurassicGate" is (most likely) in no way a laughing matter. To those I (will likely have had) offended rest assured I will do everything in my power to make sure this doesn't happen (again)."
