Peter Quill had “Hooked on a Feeling” playing on a loop. Chris Pratt, on the other hand, went with a constant rotation of “Forgot About Dre.”
During his younger, pre-actor years, Pratt performed a number of service jobs, including waiter and door-to-door salesman; as such, he wasn’t exactly living in the major movie studio luxury in which he now finds himself. In fact, he was living in a van and smoking weed every day, which is about as far as you can get from jetting around the world promoting the number one movie in the world.
Luckily, he was a pretty chillaxed hombre, and much mind the carefree lifestyle that came with his automotive apartment. In fact, he damn well enjoyed himself; he kicked back, lit up doobies, and listened to Eminem“>Eminem and Dr. Dre on repeat, and who can argue with that?
On a radio show called The Whoolywood Shuffle, Pratt looked back on those days fondly, and rose to the challenge of rapping out the lyrics to Eminem‘s verses in “Forgot About Dre,” which won a Grammy in 2001.
