Chris Pratt of 'Jurassic World' is '(pre)apologizing' for potential press tour gaffes

Perhaps taking a page out of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" mea culpa manual, Chris Pratt has issued a heartfelt "(pre)apology" for anything offensive he might say or mistakes he might make on his press tour for "Jurassic World."

Emphasis on might. And a whole slew of future tense auxiliary verbs.

He also laid claim to the inevitable disaster label "JurassicGate," natch.

The goofy "Guardians of the Galaxy" alum took to Facebook on Friday to issue said mock apology, which seemingly pokes fun at his Marvel compatriots Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner's — ahem — incident-laden press tour  for "The Avengers" sequel last month.

Though, we can only assume that.




So without further ado, Star-Lord turns the apology statement on its head:

"I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming #‎JurassicWorld press tour. I hope you understand it was never my intention to offend anyone and I am truly...

Katie Holmes on 'Dawson's Creek' reunion: 'I don't want them to grow up'

Don't plan on seeing Joey and Pacey rekindle their angsty teen romance any time soon. Or Joey and Dawson, for that matter. Katie Holmes has seemingly shut down any plans for a "Dawson's Creek" reunion.

The "Ray Donovan" actress, who costarred as tomboy Joey Potter on the WB teen drama from 1998 to 2003, talked about the Capeside denizens during a Yahoo! Style Sessions with Joe Zee.

"I don't know, like, does it work today?" the 36-year-old said of getting the coming-of-age cast back together. "I don't want them to grow up, you know it is kind of like your parents, they never get out of their 50s, that's where they are."

Holmes admitted that when she and costars James Van Der Beek, Joshua Jackson and Michelle Williams signed on for Kevin Williamson's drama, they didn't realize it would be such a part of the pop culture zeitgeist.

"We just did it, we all enjoyed it. It was of a certain time, it was pre-Internet," she said. "There was an innocence there."

The fashionista, who led fans to believe...

'San Andreas' star Dwayne 'the Rock' Johnson officiates at longtime fan's wedding

Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson has been on a promotional roll on the days leading up to the release of his flick "San Andreas," in which everything is rocking and rolling. 

He even married a longtime fan for the betterment of the movie. More on that later.

With girlfriend Lauren Hashian looking on Tuesday, he became the 283rd person to immortalize handprints and footprints in cement outside the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

Thursday found him at "San Andreas'" London premiere, where he set a Guinness World Record by snapping 105 selfies in three minutes (all of them in focus, no blurring, showing the full, recognizable face and neck of participants, as verified by a Guinness type who monitors such things).

Something audiences might want to monitor: Johnson told Variety that all the earthquake-related stuff could actually happen.

"We had the top seismologists challenge the script," he told the trade. "They walked away saying everything in this script is plausible, including the tsunami....

Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield: Sparks 'still there,' split never happened?

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are reportedly back together -- assuming they ever split in the first place, that is.

The ultra-adorable "Amazing Spider-Man" costars were rumored last month to have taken a break from their romance, which started up in 2011 when they were filming the superhero flick.

However, neither of the stars' camps confirmed the split, and photos of the couple surfaced this week showing them out and about together in the Los Angeles area.

Stone, 26, and Garfield, 31, were seen grabbing a bite at Malibu Farm in Malibu on Tuesday and having dinner at Sushi Park in West Hollywood on Wednesday, according to several reports.

Distance is said to have forced their separation, with the couple reportedly apart only because of work: He was shooting Martin Scorsese's historical drama "Silence" in Taiwan, and she had been wrapping up production on her Hawaii-set "Aloha." 

Now, the two are said to be seeing each other again, People reported on Friday.

"Nothing major happened between...

Flavor Flav arrested on suspicion of DUI and a whole lot more in Vegas

Flavor Flav was arrested in Sin City on Thursday after an early morning traffic stop that played out more like a Vegas buffet: There was a taste of just about everything on the menu.

The misdemeanor allegations were flying faster than police said the rapper and reality star was driving, according to the Associated Press.

Flav -- real name William Jonathan Drayton Jr. -- was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, possessing less than an ounce of marijuana, having an open container of alcohol in his car, driving with a suspended license, having an invalid registration and (take a breath) going 73 mph in a 45 mph zone.

He's made bail in the hours since the 12:30 a.m. arrest, the AP said.

In January 2014, the "Flavor of Love" star was arrested in New York on suspicion of speeding and driving with a suspended license on the way to his mother's funeral. New York State Police said he was going 24 mph over the 55 mph speed limit at the time, and he was charged with with felony...
