Brace yourselves, Star-Lord is finally on Reddit! After finding out that some awesome OP duped millions of people on April Fools’ Day into getting a picture of Chris Pratt’s abs to the top of Reddit — with the lie that he said he’d do an AMA if they did — the actor happily obliged this afternoon (while apparently hung-over) and answered a few questions. (Having a summer blockbuster to promote was probably also a big factor.) Ever the charmer, Pratt gushed about his wife, clarified that Jurassic World is definitely not a reboot, and revealed his secret love for Country Strong. He even premiered a new clip from Jurassic World that has him desperately trying to outrun that new super-dino. Here are just a few of the gems he dropped:

All the ways he’d describe Nick Offerman:

“Nick is a best selling author. He is a very rare breed. He is the epitome of integrity. He’s wildly intelligent. He shakes your hand, looks you in the eye and remembers your name. He is thoughtful and kind and absolutely devoted to his craft, his wife and his friends. He takes magnificent craps and sends them to me sometimes. And I like that very much. It’s almost like he’s from another time, a better time, when people were more real. Although they didn’t have texts back then so I guess it’s a wash with the crap pics.”

Anna Faris is 100 percent his soul mate:

“Anna and I are meant to be together. Our relationship has made me believe in divine intervention and destiny, just as much as my crazy career and the way I fell into this life. She and I grew up 20 minutes away from each other but never met until we met in LA. We both got our start in horror spoofs. We both did an animated movie for Phil Lord and Chris Miller. We both made our careers playing guileless nitwits for laughs. We both have parents that have suffered with MS. The similarities go on and on. Anna is a great wife. Very patient and understanding. Very supportive. So kind and genuine always. And she gave me a wonderful son and family of in laws that I truly love.”

He has a hard time picking a favorite movie:

“That is such a hard question. Probably something i saw as a kid simply for the sentimentality of it all. So Like Goonies or Bloodsport or something like that. Or maybe Rambo: First Blood or the last Rambo where he outruns that dog, that shit was fucking crazy, or maybe City of God because that movie is awesome or Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon or Across the Universe because I love the Beatles so much, or Country Strong, because just kidding, but that movie is actually really good but not my favorite of all time. Maybe The Neverending Story although I’m sure it doesn’t hold up but I’ll never know cause i’ll never watch it again cause i hate when movies that i loved as a kid don’t hold up for instance Tango and Cash just terrible.”

Can fans expect Jurassic World to be a reboot that’s closer to the books this time?

“Movies have a hard time of capturing the grittiness of a novel. Whereas novels have a hard time being done in an hour and a half. This is not a reboot. It plays as a sequel 21 years after the events of the first movie. And it deals with society’s relationship with science and how much it has changed over the past couple decades. We are no longer impressed by magical and wonderful things. Imagine if dinosaurs were back, and had been around for 21 years, would anyone think they’re cool anymore?”

What’s your favorite dinosaur?:

“Not just saying this but probably the velociraptor. They are pack hunters and super cool. But also I love the Mosasaur. That’s the water dinosaur thing from the trailer that is SO FUCKING BADASS! Funny story, before I got Jurassic Park I gave James Gunn a wrap gift of an authentic Mosasaur Jawbone Fossil. So basically I can control the future.”

What would Andy Dwyer/Johnny Karate/Bert Macklin be doing right now?:

“Here’s something you might not have known about those characters. They smoked a lot of weed. They’d probably be doing that right now.”
