452921456 Chris Pratt Dressed as Star Lord for a Visit to a Childrens Hospital, Melting Our Hearts in the Process
After starring in “Guardians of the Galaxy,” Chris Pratt is proving to be a real-life superhero, too, after making a visit — in costume — to a children’s hospital, where he hosted a “Guardians” screening, passed out toys, and posed for pictures with patients.

Pratt visited Children’s Hospital Los Angeles on Wednesday for a special screening coordinated by Marvel and Children’s Miracle Network, and snuck out during the show to don his Peter Quill/Star-Lord costume, surprising everyone when the lights came up. The actor spent more than three hours meeting with patients and their families, signing autographs, taking hundreds of photos, giving out “Guardians” toys, and letting kids try on his costume.

Pratt also met with patients who were too sick to attend the screening, including one 8-year-old boy who recognized the actor’s voice from his starring role in “The Lego Movie.” Pratt and the boy “spent about 10 minutes reciting different scenes from the film,” according to E!.

This is just the latest example of Pratt using his newfound fame for good, after he surprised a group of kids attending a charity-sponsored “Guardians” screening in New York City last month. “This is what it is all about,” Pratt told the New York Daily News at the time.

Three cheers to Pratt for making these kids’ days. Now excuse us, we’ve got something in our eyes…
