Promoting his role in blockbuster “Jurassic World,” Chris Pratt has spoken out regarding the issue of “men’s objectification.” He is decidedly not team Jon Snow on the issue.
In a new radio interview with the BBC, Pratt was unequivocal that in order for there to be true equality between the sexes, men should be treated the same way as women, even when it comes to being leered at. Though Pratt says he feels “totally objectified,” he says he is not “appalled” by this. In fact, Pratt believes this is a step in the right direction.
Said the actor:
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.
