Chris Pratt Visits Children’s Hospital of LA as Star-Lord is Why We Love Him So Much
Chris, who starred in the Lego Movie, can be seen smiling at the fan who is a patient at Children’s Hospital of LA, who has since been named ‘Lego kid’ online because of his love of the toy.
Pratt was dressed in character as Star-Lord, his character from Guardians of the Galaxy, and hung out with the children in full.
Pratt visited with 8-year-old Dylan Prunty, who is also known as “Lego Kid” in the hospital because he built a lego replica of the hospital while being treated there for mitochondrial disease.
Children’s Hospital of LA tweeted Chris their thanks:

As commenters on Reddit pointed out after Pratt’s visit to the hospital went viral, Pratt has stated in interviews that if Guardians of the Galaxy became big and kids liked the movie and it would mean something to them for Star-Lord to visit them in the hospital, “I would do that…that would give me real meaning for this movie.”
Well done Chris, well done.
