Chris Pratt Reveals Why He Won't Take Photos With Fans

Chris Pratt looks dapper on the June 2017 issue of Cigar Aficionado with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn.

Here’s what the 37-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On why he refuses photos with fans: “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. So 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.”

On what he misses about life before fame: “It’s tough sometimes, 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.”

On Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: “It’s that sweet spot where you give people what they want but not what they’re expecting. Comedy, emotion and action form this triangle. And it’s about bringing it to an even better level.”
