Chris Pratt is officially our hero, and we're not talking about his role in "Guardians of the Galaxy."

In a heartwarming interview with Panzer TV, Pratt explained that he took home pieces of his character's costume so that if the movie is a hit and he is regarded as a superhero, he can go visit sick children in the hospital. Yeah. Read this:

"I stole the jacket and some of the wardrobe so that, if this movie comes out and does what everyone hopes it can, I can follow the example of someone -- say, like, a Russell Wilson, you know -- and go visit kids," Pratt said, referring to the Seattle Seahawks quarterback who visits children's hospitals every week.

"If it was a big enough movie, to where it would mean something to a kid who’s sick in the hospital for ['Guardians' character] Peter Quill or Star-Lord to come visit them, I’ll do that," Pratt said. "I think that’s awesome, man. That would give me real meaning for this movie, you know?"

"Right now, it means high profile, cool jobs coming up, big press tour, and all the excitement of it all. But none of that really means anything. The coolest things would be that my son can one day see this and that maybe I can go affect some kids in a positive way, [and] be a good role model for them," the 35-year-old continued.

Pratt and his wife, Anna Faris, are parents to their son Jack, who was born in August 2012.

Simply a class act.
