Pratt sits down to an interview with Pursuitist about the physical perpetration for his role in the film Guardians Of The Galaxy.
The preparation. That was a big part of it. The first five months of my involvement on this film were spent transforming myself physically. I was in LA working with personal trainers and nutritionists every single day. It became my job. The thing I loved most about comic books as a kid was the imagery: The covers and these super-ripped dudes and mega-sexy women. It was fantasy to me. It’s what I appreciated most as a kid and it was what was most important to me in approaching this role so I tried to get my body to look as much like those guys as I could. I enjoyed it but it was pain.
