Chris Pratt Says We Should Start Objectifying Men

Jurassic World star, and all-around good guy, Chris Pratt would like you to know that he's fine with being objectified. In fact, for the sake of gender equality, we should probably go ahead and objectify more men, more regularly. "I think it’s OK," said the charming actor when asked about the attention he receives for his recently toned physique on an interview for BBC Radio 4’s Front Row (excerpted by Yahoo!). "I don’t feel appalled by it. I think it’s appalling that for a long time only women were objectified, but I think if we really want to advocate for equality, it’s important to even things out. Not objectify women less, but objectify men just as often as we objectify women."

Pratt admitted how getting into blockbuster shape played a major part in helping him land leading movie roles. The $10 million man, whose heartwarming comments about wife Anna Faris might have made us believe in love again, said "a huge part of how my career has shifted is based on the way that I look, on the way that I’ve shaped my body to look.”

He continued, "There are a lot of women who got careers out of it, and I’m using it to my advantage...And at the end of the day, our bodies are objects. We’re just big bags of flesh and blood and meat and organs that God gives us to drive around.”

A truly beautiful image, no? We might not be proponents of objectifying women, but we're all about gender equality and we're certainly fans of proud papa Pratt these days. Now, if only he could do something about Jurassic World's problem next?
