Chris Pratt showed off his nasty pinky toe — not that anyone asked for that. It was a joke on social media, but a famous foot surgeon said the actor actually has a toenail fungus. The Guardians of the Galaxy star posted a close-up photo of his pinky toe on social media. He called it his “Met Gala Look.” Folks were quick to point out its unsightly appearance. One person hilariously commented, “You need the guardians of Podiatry.” Another jokester replied to the photo, “There’s a fungus among us.” A third commented, “Spoiler alert – Starlord’s toenail dies in Vol 3.” One person asked, “Is this Groot?”
His Instagram post received over 400,000 likes. Dr. Brad Schaeffer, who starred in TLC’s My Feet Are Killing Me, told gossip website TMZ that the actor is dealing with a toenail fungus. Dr. Schaeffer noted that Pratt should get it checked out by a doctor or podiatrist. Schaeffer assured that the Super Mario Bros. Movie voice actor isn’t in any immediate danger as long as he treats it with a medical professional.
Behind The Scenes
Following his toenail post, Pratt shared some “incredible behind the scenes footage for the cinema buffs who are interested in how these movies are really made.” Using a Star-Lord action figure, Pratt, 43, held his character along a window ledge to create a scene that, fortunately, wasn’t in the movie.
He said in a voice resembling South Park‘s Eric Cartman, “Gamora, I don’t know where you are, but I’m going to jump off this building to find you!” Swapping in for the “stuntman,” who hilariously asks before he jumps, “Okay, wait… What am I supposed to do here?” Cueing in the music, Pratt’s stuntman nervously asks again, “Wait, I’m not entirely sure what I’m supposed to do here.” After falling in pain and having some pieces break off, the “real” Pratt continues the scene. “Oh no. Gamora!” Guardians of the Galaxy director/writer James Gunn played along with Pratt’s funny clip and commented, “I remember that day.”
