Extra: Chris Pratt reminds rude fan to represent

The Daily Catch - published on 09/23/16

Chris Pratt, the star of Guardians of the Galaxy was leaving LAX when he was mobbed by fans and reporters looking for autographs and gossip. One reporter even asked his opinion about the recent divorce of Hollywood power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. He gives the man a puzzled look, as if wondering why he would be asked that, but responded that he’d pray for them.

But the “Parks and Recreation” alum was less than thrilled by one autograph-seeker’s hissy-fit after he was missed in the long line of fans bombarding Pratt with requests and compliments. “You should be nicer. You got a cross on your chest and you’re cussing me out. I just made you guys a bunch of money right now,” he told the man, likely referring to people’s tendency auction off celebrity autographs. “Don’t be a jerk.”

Pratt is not harsh in his words, he just reminds the man that he’s wearing a cross and should honor it by being a decent person. Good on you Chris, we could all use a reminder from time to time.
