Actor Chris Pratt says he is still coming to terms with his father Dan Pratt’s death in 2014.
The 37-year-old “Passengers” star’s father died after a long battle with multiple sclerosis.
Pratt, who found out of his father’s passing while filming Jurassic World, says it wasn’t until he began filming Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 that he forced himself to fully digest his feelings.
“The truth is I ripped open some wounds that had been healing for some time,” Pratt said in an interview with British GQ.
“And I didn’t want to. But I knew it was right for the moment…There are wounds that are never going to be totally healed.
“It would probably make for a better story if it was some emotional thing that I hadn’t dealt with. When we face the death of a parent, you sometimes feel regret that you didn’t fully embrace what you had,” he said
