Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence’s press junket for Passengers has been awesome. Whether they’re messing about on Ellen or failing at card tricks on The Graham Norton Show, there’s little doubt that the lovable pair know how to have a good time. However, their recent visit to BBC Radio 1, where they played a game ‘Playground Insults’ has got to take the cake.
The rules of the game were very simple: Sitting across from each other, the two had to take turns throwing insults until either one of them began laughing uncontrollably, or until one of them said the absolute show-stopping mic-drop joke from which there would be no coming back.
Here are some of the highlights:
“You are so falsely strong that if I was given a choice of you or your wife to protect me, I would choose Anna [Faris].” – Jennifer Lawrence
“Why did they call it Joy?” – Chris Pratt
Lawrence almost lost the game early with Pratt’s reference to Lawrence’s 2015 movie, and as it goes on, they really get into it with insults of all sorts. I don’t want to spoil the fun by revealing too many of them here, but here’s a subtly savage favourite of mine from Pratt to Lawrence: “It’s such a shame to meet somebody you thought you’d like.”
