Chris Pratt Is in The “No Picture” Club
Many years ago I was walking around downtown Portland with some friends when we happened to run into Morgan Freeman. Most of us were too shocked to really do anything, other than go "Holy s***, it's Morgan Freeman." This was long before everyone had a camera on their phone, so one of my friends got up the nerve to go ask for an autograph. He was promptly shot down by Mr. Freeman, who then offered up a handshake.
We were all pretty shocked at this, but didn't really think much of it. Now with everyone having a camera on their phone, wanting to get a pic with a celebrity you bump into in public has become a big thing. But there are some celebrities that won't take the pic. Emma Watson, Justin Bieber, and Jennifer Lawrence have said they won't take selfies with fans. You can now add Chris Pratt to that list.
"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," he said. "So I say, ‘Would you settle for a handshake?’ And then they take the picture anyway."
And let's be honest, you shouldn't be taking pictures with Burt Macklin anyway, He's probably working on a very important case.
