Q&A: Chris Pratt on running on screen, Tom Cruise, religion

LOS ANGELES (AP) — When Chris Pratt is running his fastest, he has a tendency to fall.

The “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World” star broke a femur growth plate as a kid, leaving him less than confident in his sprinting abilities — and a bit self-conscious about some action scenes.

The 39-year-old actor says he admires how Tom Cruise runs on screen — and also how the “Mission: Impossible” star conducts himself on set when in the public eye.

Pratt recently surprised seven disabled athletes, part of the nonprofit group Achilles International, with the news that they’re being sponsored in the New York City Marathon by Michelob Ultra. Pratt, a spokesman for the beer brand, says he’s mulling the idea of running a full marathon himself someday.
