On Sunday, I laughed hard,

and my body crampedin three places.


And it was a cramp over hereand two over here,

and so I was tryingto stretch them out,

but since they wereon opposite sides...

when I would go on this side,they would aggravate each other,

and I was just a see-sawof destruction.

-It was bad. It sucked.-Oh, man. Cramping.

Cramping at 33.Is it the road life?

-Is that what it is?-Road life and irresponsibility.

Poor eating, drinking,a lot of things.

I need to takea daily vitamin, probably,

and I need to get backoff my ex-girlfriend.


I like thatyou've narrowed it down.

-Yep.-Got it down to the key things.

I know the thingsI need to do--

-I just don't do them.-That's everyone, though.

-Is it?-That's health. That's life.

You got to work out,you got to eat well.

We don't do them.Things you do do, though,

-is, uh, you do comedy, man,you do comedy. -Do comedy.

-You were in South Africarecently. -Yeah.

Why were you fightingwith the media?

I wasn't fightingwith the media.

The show...my South African show...

Which is, if showsgo poorly sometimes,

it just sucks when you fly15 hours for a show to suck.

You're like, "No, that wasa long way to go to do poorly."


You know what's weird is,it didn't suck.

-This was the strange thing.-Yeah.

-Some of the reportersin South Africa -Yeah.

they-- no, not in a bad way;let me explain this.

They... they thoughtthat you were, like,

a man who speaks outagainst rape.

-(laughter)-'Cause of the Bill Cosby thing.

-So they just thought...-So some people were just, like,

they were, like,Hannibal Buress,

and then the first thingthat pops up

-is obviously the thing,-Yeah.

and then they were like,"Oh, so now he's into comedy?"

-And so...-(laughter)

they thought you were, like,just doing a show,

-Yeah. -so, like, some peoplethat came to the show,

they were like, "Oh, yeah,we heard about this guy."

So some people were there towatch you give, like, a speech


about Quaaludes and stuff.

You need to get ridof those things on Google, man.

-Yep. How do you do that?-You can.

I think you can,like, write to Google

-and say, "Hey, no more."-All right.

"No more"?

-Hey, Google, stop that.-That's how it works.

Are you ever gonna,like, run in a movie?

-Uh...-No, 'cause, like, you play,

like, a very chill-- I mean,you are very chilled out.

But do you ever thinkyou're gonna be, like,

one of those guys whoswitch over to, like, action?

I would like to.I think somebody's waiting

to give me an action movie--they're just saying,

-"Nah, he's too fat now.-(laughter)

"It's not time. Let's wait.

"Let's see if he can...if he can do it,

and then we'll..."I think there's a offer waiting,

-and it's just not time yet.-It's not time for you to do it.

Yeah. I want to do...I think I want to have my, uh,

Chris Pratt transformation.
