Chris Pratt took some time off to visit Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, this weekend, and the kids loved it.
The Jurassic World star has been doing the rounds charming everyone with his easy-going personality. His moves in the blockbuster — which has broken all kinds of box office records since opening on June 12 — are the latest rave and zookeepers all over the world are imitating him and his raptor training.
On Father’s Day weekend, Chris Pratt visited the Children’s Hospital to put some much needed smiles on the young patients’ faces. In many instances, all these kids know nothing but pain and suffering due to terrible diseases and the treatments they have to undergo.
On its Facebook page, Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital — the fastest growing pediatric facility in Louisiana — praised Chris Pratt for taking time off from filming to visit the kids and shared some adorable photos of the special time he spent with the children.
“Actor Chris Pratt, best known for Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy, took time out from filming his latest movie to visit with our #AmazingKids at Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital. Our patients were all smiles and we are so thankful to Chris for lifting their spirits by visiting and handing out Jurassic World goodies. Thanks to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals for coordinating such a special visit!”
As seen on the adorable photos posted to Facebook, Chris Pratt spent quite a bit of time with the very young patients at the hospital, autographing special gifts for them and just sitting by their bedside. He patiently played with the patients, took pictures with them, and even met some of the parents that were present.
The mega star also put smiles on the faces of the several lucky female staff that happened to be working that day, and made everyone at the hospital’s day in a visit that they won’t soon forget.
Chris Pratt showed that despite being a successful movie star he has a big heart. Earlier this year, Pratt and Chris Evans (Captain America) stopped at another hospital as part of a Super Bowl bet.
