That Awkward Moment When Make-up Takes Four Hours

In popular movies, like Guardians of the Galaxy, actors can be subjected to hours of preparation for each day of filming.

In this video, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and Chris Pratt talk about what it takes to get into character every day on the Guardians of the Galaxy movies.

With Chris Pratt playing a human beside characters like Gamora, Nebula and Drax, he doesn’t have room to talk about the hassle of getting ready for filming, but he still has a sense of humor.

This is a message to all dreamers and creatives, never give up, even if it takes a while.
