Chris Pratt feels embarrassment for Justin Bieber over his fight with actor Orlando Bloom, because it’s Orlando Bloom.
Chris Pratt expressed secondhand embarrassment for Justin Bieber during a radio interview when he was told Orlando Bloom had aimed [and missed] a swing at the singer in Ibiza last week, reportedly over Bloom’s former wife, supermodel Miranda Kerr.
“How embarrassing to get punched by Orlando Bloom!,” the Guardians of the Galaxy actor noted.
“Like, of all the people you get punched by, it’s Orlando Bloom?” Pratt added, “Oh, no.”
Pratt appeared to feel bad for the Biebs in a lively interview with hip-hop radio host DJ Whoo Kid, during which he also knocked out each verse of Eminem’s “Forgot About Dre” decently.
At first, Chris misunderstood who attempted to hit Bieber when he was asked about the fight, and thought the singer had been attacked by Baywatch veteran David Hasselhoff.
After the Whoo Kid explained that it was Bloom, not Hasselhoff, who reportedly aimed a slap or a punch at the Canadian star, Pratt’s entertainingly over-the-top response to Whoo’s next query of:”You’d rather get punched by David Hasselhoff — that’s more gangster?” was:
“Yeah dude, I’d rather get farted on by David Hasselhoff that punched by Orlando Bloom!”
In the show, Pratt was also asked about his musical tastes. To which, he talked of younger years when he smoked a lot of time smoking weed and learned hip-hop lyrics.
“Me and my friend lived in a van in Maui and we listened to [2001, Dr. Dre’s album featuring Eminem] and smoked weed every day,” Pratt recalled.
He added: “I know every word, I know every word to that album.”
When asked to “prove it,” he did, spitting “Forgot About Dre.”
Meanwhile, the Bieber-Bloom hot topic continues to draw interest.
Bieber and Kerr were strongly rumored to have had a tryst after they first met at a Victoria’s Secret show in 2012. Kerr has always denied this.
Reports on what kicked off Bloom’s clash with Bieber have differed, and noticeably become more dramatic with each passing day. But it’s alleged Justin made snarky comments about Kerr to Bloom after the actor refused to shake his hand.
Missing from most reports or opinionating on the Bieber, Bloom, Kerr triangle is that back in 2012, Miranda was a 29-year-old, married, mother-of-one and Justin was 18.
By anyone’s standards, that’s self-explanatory math.
The Lord of the Rings star is thought to still be partying in Ibiza. After nearly meeting Bloom twice after their run-in, Justin returned to California and hit the studio with Aussie idol, Cody Simpson Monday night.
But not, before the 20-year-old rolled out a naked photo shoot on Instagram. As you do.
So, buckle up Bieber. If Pratt proves not everyone thinks Bloom is the fightingsuperhero he’s being billed as, maybe you’ll get through this latest hot mess.
