A good rule in life is to never text when you're blacked out.
Chris Pratt broke that rule and ended up doing something very stupid. In an interview with James Corden on The Late Late Show (via Yahoo News, Pratt revealed he uses sleep aids at night, but they knock him out to the point that he isn't sure what he's doing.
One night, he sent a text message to Batista (Dave Bautista), wanting to test his skills on the mat.
"I would text people, and I'm blackout, have no idea what I'm texting people, on like an Ambien. It was like: 'Dave, I want to wrestle you. I want to wrestle you. No one needs to know, but I just want to know. I think I could take you. I think I could wrestle you, bro. Like collegiate rules — no elbows, no knees. I just want to feel the power,'" he recalled. "Dave would kill me. He is by far the toughest dude in all of Hollywood."
Seeing the story, Batista had the following response:
-------- I’ll never forget the look of confusion when I asked him about the texts! https://t.co/661q7rhCUj— Poor Kid Who Chased His Dreams. (@DaveBautista) July 3, 2021
Batista and Pratt have worked together on Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers. They will work together again on the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film.
