Chris Pratt's dolphin inspiration

Chris Pratt imagined he was a dolphin on the set of 'Jurassic World'.

The 36-year-old actor stars as animal expert and dinosaur researcher Owen Grady in the action film and has described the process behind his character.

Splitting it into four phrases for GQ, he said: "Flow core, no TC, volume up point five, Eric Church."

He further explained that "flow core" references posture whilst "no TC" means "no triple chin".

He also revealed that "volume point five" encouraged him to talk with more gusto and Eric Church references the artist of the song he listened to throughout filming to help him get into character.

Meanwhile, Chris previously claimed his "natural instinct to be a goofball" nearly ruined 'Jurassic World'.

He explained: "For me, the biggest challenge is to not be goofy, because it's my natural instinct to be a goofball. Before every take, I would have to do this little ritual to be like, 'Don't turn into a dumbass halfway through this take!'"

The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star also admitted he is overwhelmed by his own success.

He added: "I don't pinch myself because when you pinch yourself, it's to see if you're dreaming and it'll wake you up.

"Being part of a movie that was essentially my 'Star Wars' ... it was like my first event movie, I saw it in the theatres, it blew my mind! I was 13 years old, so to be in that is crazy. It's just crazy."
