Chris Pratt humbly honors ‘greatest generation’ vets

Chris Pratt isn’t your typical Hollywood celebrity, and his colors were on display at Wednesday night’s premiere The list of terminals.

The actor leads Amazon Prime’s new series about a former Navy SEAL officer who investigates his platoon’s ambush on a secret mission.

Chris didn’t expect to find a bunch of older veterans at the premiere, but he knew who they were and was thrilled to meet them.

He explained to The Associated Press:

“They are veterans of the Second World War, and every year they return on pilgrimage to Normandy. Glad to see them here. It was a surprise to me; I didn’t know they were going to be here.

“I followed their story,” he said.

For Chris, their appearance was “an opportunity to catch them”.

” [W]When I saw them, I was like, ‘Oh my god, we have to spend some time together’, you know? There is not enough time in the world. Definitely on a press line, where everything is fifteen seconds. I would like to sit down and really, really talk with them…”

He bought time. The star shook hands with the men, expressing her gratitude for their service. Chris said he wanted to “honor them for their great sacrifice”.

“Honor” seems to be a dwindling practice these days. Respect is becoming increasingly rare, and this seems even more true when it comes to seniors. Honoring those who came before us is not conducive to a “me first” America.

And a TikTok generation surely has no idea what “sacrifice” looked like in 1941.

But Chris is obviously a man with old school values. And he is used to saluting the military of the nation:

It is different from Hollywood in several ways:

At the premiere, Chris share his respect for the Armed Forces in general:

“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. »

During footage from a photo installation at the event, he can be heard looking for “our veterans”:

Chris called the senior veterans “a wonderful group of extraordinary men of the greatest generation”.

“You look fantastic. You look lively. … Thank you,” he said. Told a man.

What a different place Hollywood would be if it was full of that kind of grace and respect. The same could be said of the rest of the world.
