Chris Pratt is featured in a fabulous fashion photo spread in InStyle as the magazine names him Man of Style. His behind-the-scenes photo shoot commentary is nothing less than hilarious. In the interview, the ‘Jurassic World’ and ‘The Magnificent’ star opens up about his style evolution and his wife Anna Faris.
Chris Pratt is literally light years away from his ‘Parks and Recreation’ character, having become a superhero icon thanks to the likes of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and ‘Jurassic World.’ He shed the pounds of that TV sitcom character and now that news of his physical transformation is old news.
He’s back once again on the big screen in the much anticipated Antoine Fuqua-directed remake of the classic 1960 western, The Magnificent Seven which starred Yul Brynner, Eli Wallach, and Steve McQueen. And, as film buffs know, that was a remake of the Japanese masterpiece, Akira Kurosawa’s masterpiece ‘Seven Samurai; of 1954. Yes, Hollywood continues to coast along on remakes and reboots. Chris Pratt co-stars with Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke in this new version.
Now InStyle celebrated him as a fashion icon and names him September – Man of Style. In true Chris Pratt fashion, both in the interview and in some truly hilarious commentary on Instagram and Snapchat, chronicling the photo shoot, he continues to revel in witticisms. The photos are quite amazing, not least, for the settings. In one of them he’s standing beside a true relic of the 20th century, a pay phone. A sizable percentage of the population has never ever seen one, let alone dropped in a quarter to make a phone call!
He tells the magazine about his wife, Anna Feris and says of her, “She’s effortlessly stylish. But when we met, I think she appreciated that I was a guy who wore, like, cargo shorts and a T-shirt from Cabela’s. That was my staple wardrobe for a really long time.”
Continuing, he said, “Now I’m a little more cognizant of my choices. I don’t just passively have stylists put whatever they want on me. I pay attention.
He also revealed a hidden talent, hair braiding. He said, “My sister taught me how to braid when we were younger. Then, I would braid Anna’s hair at night … it was a nice little ritual.”
He went on to say, “But her hair started breaking off at the top of the braid because she was sleeping on it. So Anna’s mom thought a French braid might distribute the pressure. She taught me when we were in Hawaii shooting Jurassic World.”
Yes, hidden talents indeed. It’s a quirky interview full of all kinds of surprises and you can see more tidbits here and check out Chris Pratt’s Instyle photos and his entertaining commentary from Instagram and Snapchat below!
@instylemagazine was kind enough to name me September's Man of Style. You can buy the #magazine on the stands now if it pleases you. This photo shoot was geared toward releasing the #magnificent #magnificent7 Movie in theaters September 23rd. Full disclosure I did not pick out any of the clothes which is kinda funny for a guy who is called the "man of style" I mostly like T shirts with American flags on them. Usually I go for the one on the top of the "shirt pile" but I want to promote this nice magazine called In Style Magazine because everyone who was there that hot day we were doing the photo shoot was really nice. They had nice food spread out. And they played good country music. And there were horses all over the place. I feel like I took some pictures with some horses but those didn't make the magazine. Maybe I accidentally closed my eyes or maybe the horse's agent threw a Hollywood bitch fit for some reason. The people who picked out the clothes have good style. No doubt. Oh! They even gave me a shirt!!!! Such a nice shirt. Like a flannel shirt but made out of pajamas and the thing cost like $500 or something ridiculous but they just gave it to me!!! So. Anyways. Hopefully this helps them at least sell $500 worth of magazines to make up for that sweet ass shirt. It's up in Washington so I can't send a pic right now of the shirt. But trust me. It's great. @instylemagazine September 2016 Man of Style on newsstands now.

Ok. So the @instylemagazine Photographer saw my earlier post and sent this photo! Proof! I did stand next to a horse. And also, I put that hat on the horses head. Boom. My idea! #classic And it didn't even freak out. I learned how to do that when I was making the #magnificent7 I basically learned a ton about dressing horses in funny clothes, hats, scarves, the like, you'll see a lot of that in the movie. Our horses are wearing funny little hats and boots and smoking pipes. Does anyone ever read this shit? Haha! That's not true. None of it. Well the part about me putting the hat on the horses head is true. I'm like the horse whisperer. Right after this I got it to stand on one foot and break a board with a blind fold on. Then I jumped it. Over a mountain. Not to brag.
