Chris Pratt Reveals His Reasons For Not Having Selfies With Fans
| Last updated
Chris Pratt isn't one to shy away from the public eye; in fact he's one to spill the beans on most things.
Last year, he revealed all about the sex-scenes between himself and Jennifer Lawrence in the film Passenger.
He said: "Essentially, it's your job to just minimise the discomfort by, you know, making sure there's nobody else on set than is required, having a closed set, periodically checking in, and just doing everything you can to assure the person you're with that they're okay."
So, he's open, but where does he draw the line? The answer, selfies.
We know that he isn't the first to do it either. Emma Watson says she won't do it as stalkers will know her location at the time. Justin Bieber refuses because, well, he's Justin Bieber and apparently, that's an excuse.
Pratt, though, says it's so he can have some 'me time'. Speaking to Cigar Aficionado magazine, Pratt said: "I've always been a pretty deferential, go-with-the-flow guy. But now I have to be economical with my time.
"If I go out and want to do normal things, I have to be comfortable disappointing people. I just don't take pictures with people. Because that's not about enjoying the moment; it's about stealing the moment to brag about later.
"So, I say, 'would you settle for a handshake?' And then they take the picture anyway."

In that case, not sure how his theory works, but if it works for him. Pratt then continued to say he misses the regular life - the price of fame.
"It's tough sometimes," he says. "The amount of management you need to do on things you used to do spontaneously.
"What I really miss is sitting down and talking to strangers who don't know me, so we can discover each other.
"I'd say the majority of people I meet have an idea about me before they meet me. There's something nice to being able to surprise somebody."
Having admitted that he misses that aspect of life, Pratt is confident that he's 'made it'.
"There was this moment when I was at a party and Barbara Streisand and Jim Carrey both came up to me to tell me they loved what I'd done. Streisand asked me, 'How does it feel? You're this year's big thing'. Jim Carrey told me the same thing. That was when those people stopped being my icons and became my peers."
Pratt, in his interview, was very praiseworthy towards the Brits, who are 'so polite'. He talks of the moment, on set, some Brits had to politely tell him smoking indoors is illegal. To which he responded: "No, no, that's cool - just tell me when the cops come."
He claims the cigars are his one 'diva thing', although surely the selfie thing is a little diva-ish, too.
I guess you can let him off when he's bound to continue to have his name up in lights over the next couple of years: Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 2, Avengers: Infinity War, and Jurassic World 2 are all in-line for release soon.
