Now, if there's one thing that promotional tours are sure to prompt, it's goofy, shareable celebrity "antics." With the world apparently having collectively decided that brief, thoughtful commentary on the movie in question (and its production) is no longer sufficient to entertain us all, actors are now forced to dance like contractually obligated puppets for our pleasure, engaging in all kinds of rigidly conceived whimsy in search of a truly "viral" video.

Which, of course, makes it all the less controversial that...

Chris Pratt Just Asked Jennifer Lawrence How It Feels 'Being In The Stupidest Marvel Movie'

After all, had done so on the street, or while filming the upcoming with herself, that could be quite the snarky slam. As it happens, though, the line came as part of BBC Radio 1's eternally clickable "Playground Insults" feature, during which — despite this being radio — Pratt and Lawrence were filmed insulting one another in the most childish manner possible:

In other words? Pratt may indeed have turned to Lawrence and said...

"What was it like being in the stupidest Marvel movie?"

...but he very much did so in jest. Also, since Lawrence got in some excellent jabs herself, including "you're so stupid, your 3-year-old son has probably taught you everything you know," the whole thing actually more closely resembles two pals goofing around than it does and actual insult-fest. Only, y'know, they'd also quite like you to know that Passengers hits theaters on December 21, if that wouldn't be too much trouble.

Either that, or Lawrence restrained herself from brutally pummeling Pratt with a chair until after the radio stations cameras (which, again, still seems a little weird) were no longer rolling.

Still want more Pratt-related goofballery? Never fear, we've got you covered right here.

In the meantime, though, what do you think? Is X-Men: Apocalypse really the "stupidest Marvel movie"? Let us know below!
