Actor Chris Pratt told Men's Journal that he thinks all fathers imagine how they would respond if someone did anything to their children.
"Some critic said something like it was an 'unhinged revenge fantasy.' And, to be honest, that's exactly what it is in a way. Whenever you're put in a position, or even imagine a position, where those kids are in danger, your mind goes to wild places. I mean if I was put through the situations that James was in, I would probably do the same f****** thing. I think that's why those storylines resonate so strongly with fathers," Pratt said, according to the outlet.
"I think every dad secretly fantasizes about what they would do if someone ever f***** with their kids. Your partner sees you staring off into the distance and says, 'Honey, what are you thinking about?' And you say, 'Oh, nothing.' But what you're really thinking is, Where's the duct tape and how deep is the trunk? I think that's most dads. Or maybe that's just me and I'm revealing something here!" Pratt said. "But as someone who's talked to a lot of dads, I think we all ask ourselves what we would do. That's one of the reasons Liam Neeson's movie Taken was such a hit. Us dads are just like, 'Yes! Get 'em! Use that special set of skills.'"
Pratt disagreed with the idea that people should delay having children, suggesting exactly the opposite.
"People say all the time, 'Don't rush to have kids.' I personally disagree. Rush. Have them. Of course, make sure you find a great partner, but don't wait," he said, according to the outlet.
The actor, who voiced the character of Mario in "The Super Mario Bros. Movie," said being a dad has made him want to be in more PG movies. He said that many of the PG-rated films he sees with his kids are not good.
"In the same way that being a father changes the kind of actor you are, it can definitely change the kinds of roles you want to be involved in. I've found myself wanting to do more PG movies. I see a lot because my kids want to watch them, and to be honest, some of them are bad. And I’m sitting there thinking, This is terrible. So at the same time as wanting to make movies that would entertain my kids, I'm also thinking about creating movies that are merciful on the parents," Pratt said, according to Men's Journal.
