One of the best things about the films that I have been blessed to be a part of are the incredible people I have met and now call friends or family. @tonyjaaofficial is someone whom I often referred to as my good luck charm because of the positive energy he brought to the filming of Furious 7. He is a real gem of a talent in the new xXx The Return of Xander, now adding a cool comedic element to his already awe inspiring acrobatics. But beyond that is his gracious heart. He is after all a real Buddhist Monk. I remember a dinner we had last year where he and my mother talked for a long time. At the end of the dinner my mother said the one place she would like to still go to is Thailand to visit Tony and the Buddhist Monks for her own spiritual growth. Haha. That’s powerful!…

We have been friends for over thirteen years… Last night at a dinner with him and his wife, the lovely, beautiful and amazing Shakira… he referred to me as his son… I couldn’t help but to beam with pride. Just sharing a moment that meant the world to me… #leadwithlove…

After the New York screening someone said that The Last Witch Hunter introduces a completely new Genre… Can’t wait for you to see it opening day. Tonight I will be on @CriticalRole Twitch.tv/geekandsundry I had so much fun playing D&D with my friends and Nerdist!…

One year ago today, Guardians of the Galaxy opened up in the U.S. and many places around the world. The movie massively over-performed that weekend, even by our own expectations, but what meant more to me is how much so many of you, no matter where you were from, took the story and the characters into your hearts. What meant more to me is that “We are Groot” became a rallying cry for unity among friends and families. What meant more to me is that you laughed at the dumb stuff I thought you’d miss, like “Cap’n’s gotta teach stuff” and “I was thinking of something else.” What meant more to me is that in our tenth week we were out-performing any comic book film in recent history – not because of the money, but because people were going back to see the film a second, third, fourth, fifth time, or more, because they loved it. What mattered to me is that after a lifetime of telling stories and half a lifetime making movies, I felt like you and I, filmmaker and audience, were at the same place at the same time.It mattered to me mostly because I told a story fully with my heart, and you took it into yours. I don’t think I can ever explain how much that means to me. It makes every failure I’ve ever had well worth it.I get a lot of messages from people saying, “You made me believe in movies again.” Well, you guys made me believe that what I spent my life doing was worth doing. And you strengthened my belief that nothing’s worth doing, if it’s not done honestly, and it’s not done with love. On this, the one year anniversary of the cinematic Guardians entering our solar system: thank you, thank you, thank you.We really are, truly, honestly Groot.Love,James (Art by MJ Hiblen) #guardiansofthegalaxy #gotg #groot #WeAreGroot #gamora #marvel…
