Chris Pratt: I don't mind being objectified

Chris Pratt doesn't mind being objectified.

The 'Jurassic World' hunk has insisted he isn't worried about people finding him good looking and thinks it is great that men's bodies are now being treated the same way as women's.

Talking about being objectified, he said: "I think it's OK, 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.

"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."

In fact, the 35-year-old actor - who has two-year-old son Jack with wife Anna Faris - thinks his career has skyrocketed because of the way he looks.

He added to BBC Radio 4: "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.

"It's nice to know that there's something I can do, that I can manipulate the way I look - that's a good thing for an actor to be able to do."
