Chris Pratt advocates gender equality
Hollywood star Chris Pratt feels objectified nowadays but does not mind it as he thinks if women can be subjected to objectification so can men.
Pratt, 35, said things have changed for him since his weight loss and rise to stardom through blockbuster hits including Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, said The Hollywood Reporter.
The actor admitted that his fit physique played a huge part in scoring lead roles.
“I think it (objectification) <g data-gr-id="22">is ok</g>, I do not 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 is important to even things out.”
“Not objectify women less, but objectify men just as often as we objectify women,” he added.
Pratt said that he is using his toned figure to his career advantage.
“There are a lot of women who got careers out of it, and I am using it to my advantage. And at the end of the day, our bodies are objects.”
