In an age when the slightest misjudged remark results in a tide of Twitter abuse, Chris Pratt has taken it upon himself to just pre-emptively apologise for anything accidentally incendiary he says while doing press for Jurassic World.

In a 'heartfelt apology' on Facebook, he confessed: "I am not in the business of making excuses. I am just dumb. Plain and simple. I try. I REALLY try!"

The Jurassic Park sequel press tour will be a worldwide onslaught spanning many weeks and hundreds of interviews, sometimes involving bizarre questions and I've-been-doing-this-for-hours delirious responses.

I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming #JurassicWorld...

Pratt's post is probably wise given the sh*tstorm Jeremy Renner faced during the Avengers: Age of Ultron press tour.

His pre-apology in full:

"I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming ‪#‎JurassicWorld‬ press tour. I hope you understand it was never my intention to offend anyone and I am truly sorry. I swear. I'm the nicest guy in the world. And I fully regret what I (accidentally will have) said in (the upcoming foreign and domestic) interview(s).

I am not in the business of making excuses. I am just dumb. Plain and simple. I try. I REALLY try! When I do (potentially) commit the offensive act for which I am now (pre) apologizing you must understand I (will likely have been) tired and exhausted when I (potentially) said that thing I (will have had) said that (will have had) crossed the line. Those rooms can get stuffy and the hardworking crews putting these junkets together need some entertainment! (Likely) that is who I was trying to crack up when I (will have had) made that tasteless and unprofessional comment. Trust me. I know you can't say that anymore. In fact in my opinion it was never right to say the thing I definitely don't want to but probably will have said. To those I (will have) offended please understand how truly sorry I already am. I am fully aware that the subject matter of my imminent forthcoming mistake, a blunder (possibly to be) dubbed "JurassicGate" is (most likely) in no way a laughing matter. To those I (will likely have had) offended rest assured I will do everything in my power to make sure this doesn't happen (again)."

Jurassic World has a release date of 12 June 2015.
