Chris Pratt Honors U.S. Veterans at THE TERMINAL LIST Release

By Movieguide® Staff

Actor Chris Pratt recently honored World War II veterans at a Los Angeles premiere of his upcoming movie, THE TERMINAL LIST, where he stars as a U.S. Navy Seal.

“Well, this is a wonderful group of extraordinary men of the greatest generation,” Pratt told the Associated Press. “These are World War II veterans, and every year they take a pilgrimage back to Normandy.”

Pratt is candid about his connection to the U.S. military through the service of family members, like his brother Cully Pratt.

“It was an opportunity to just … catch up with them. I’ve been following their story,” Pratt said. “And when I saw them, I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh. We’ve got to spend time together’… I’d like to sit down and really talk to them and honor them for their great sacrifice.”

“This is a wonderful group of extraordinary men of the greatest generation,” Pratt added.

The JURASSIC WORLD actor also expressed his gratitude for all military personnel.

“[I have an] absolute affinity for our Navy SEAL community, for our men and women in uniform, and especially for our special operators and all they go through and all they sacrifice,” he told Reuters.

Pratt called on the mainstream media to honor and respect military servicemen and women in how they present them to the world.

“The more we can look at our veterans for who they are, actual people, with siblings and parents, with children and funny pasts — the more we can approach our relationships to them with compassion and understanding,” Pratt said.

“What makes these men so particularly special is their mortality,” he continued. “You know, they step into these fights knowing they can die. They don’t do it because they have a bulletproof vest and they’re faster than a speeding bullet … These are guys who have each others’ backs and who routinely do sacrifice their lives in the line of duty.”

Movieguide® has yet to review THE TERMINAL LIST, and cannot advise on its content.
