Chris Pratt Texted Dave Bautista While on Ambien; Challenged Him To Wrestle
Side effects of Ambien include clumsiness, drowsiness and a whole lot of courage!
Chris Pratt stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday, July 21, along with his Guardians of the Galaxy co-stars Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, where he was put on the spot about a questionable text he sent.
Since Bautista (who plays Drax the Destroyer in the sure-to-be blockbuster based on the Marvel comic) holds the title of the longest-reigning World Heavyweight Champion in WWE history, Kimmel asked him if there was any wrestling on the set. Pratt then feigned embarrassment by shaking his head and hiding his face.
"I get this text…Chris and I were both amateur wrestlers and I get this text one night…it's the sweetest text in the world. He's telling me how much he loves me and he says he's so proud of me. He's amazed i'm doing such a great job, and then the farther you go down…he's calling me out in this text saying he thinks he could take me and he said nobody has to know!"
The 35-year-old hunky actor defended himself, saying he didn't remember anything when the wrestler brought it up. "He came up to me and goes, 'Chris, I want to talk to you about this text you sent last night,' and I was like, 'what text?' I had taken an Ambien the night before. It was like a drunk text!"
When Kimmel suggested taking up the challenge by setting up a match between the two, Pratt said, "It already happened…we know who won!"
