1. On goofing around with Jennifer Lawrence on the Passengers set

Q: Since you and Jennifer Lawrence have a pretty similar sense of humour, there must’ve been some pretty hilarious moments on set of Passengers. What is one of the funniest (or [most] embarrassing) moments when filming the movie?

CP: We were sitting in our chairs waiting for the next shot and a big set light bulb exploded nearby and she screamed. High pitched. Very feminine.

Then she immediately looked over at me and said, “Jesus Chris! You scream like a woman! Did everyone just hear Chris?” And for the rest of the shoot I couldn’t convince anyone it wasn’t me. I just had to own it.

2. On his son, Jack

Q: Does your son still think you’re a firefighter?

CP: No he knows I’m an actor. But he thinks it’s kind of stupid. Haha! I suppose he’s right!!!

6. On how he moved past roles based on his looks

Q: How has your past as an overweight, comedic character influenced your growth as an actor, especially now that you’re considered one of the sexiest Hollywood stars?

CP: No vanity in comedy, understanding the element of my job in where I am a prop. I was confident and in good shape when I first came to L.A. but nobody would cast me in any well written roles. People assumed based on my looks I was an asshole and a one trick pony. … They never let me improv or do comedy. It wasn’t until I built a shlubby exterior, which stood in stark contrast to my inner confidence that people gave me room to play.

7. On his life pre-fame

Q: [Approximately] 15 years ago you were living in your van on a beach in Hawaii, jobless, listening to Dre’s 2001 everyday. Do you ever miss anything about those days? Simpler times, being able to go anywhere you want without fear of paparazzi, etc.

CP: That was such an amazing time in my life. There are elements I miss. Perhaps most of all, uncertainty.

8. On a possible rap career

Q: Would you and Eminem ever do a song together?

CP: He’s been after me for years to do a song. Wait, no? He doesn’t know I exist? Oh. Well … probably not. Simply because he wouldn’t do it. Haha! But I’d buy his cologne if he had one.
