In a candid interview with The Guardian on Saturday, the 35-year-old Chris Pratt, who stars in the much awaited Jurassic World, said he enjoys his hobby of recreational hunting. He said the 'animal instinct' in his nature drives him to chase down and hunt #Animals. 'The thing inside me that drives me to go out and hunt is very animal," The Guardian quoted him as saying.
Killing and then feeling remorseful?
Seems like Chris wants to play too cautious to lose his fan base, after admitting his love with hunting, he said that he felt emotional and remorseful after killing animals in the hunt. He stated that he greatly respects the animal he kills and the feeling of guilt after the hunt brings him closer to God, humanity and lets him understand himself spiritually. "The remorse, emotion and respect I feel, and the closeness to God that I feel when I'm out there, is my humanity. It's an opportunity for me to explore what parts of me are animal and what parts of me are human." His feeble attempts to defy the perception of 'hunting is cruel', has only resulted in angry and disappointed viral comments. People threw around words such as 'w*nker', 'tosser' and 'repulsive' to describe his vague comments.
After answering the question over hunting in ambiguous ways, Chris said he became 'impotent' in the process of putting on weight for his role in the sitcom 'Parks and Recreation'. The actor, who's married to Scary Movie actress Anna Faris, said he had been feeling depressed and fatigued while playing his role as Any Dwyer in the popular sitcom.
A piece of advice
First of all, we should really thank him. Wondering why? Because Chris once again debunked some popular myths and reinstated some of the scientific facts.
· Hunting doesn't make you more of a man
· People could provide lamest logic to prove 'hunting is natural'
· Recreational hunting doesn't give you any relief from depression
How he could feel more 'spiritually elevated' and lose weight?
If the feeling of remorse could bring Chris closer to God, then undoubtedly a bit of kindness to it could enlighten him. Refraining from hunting and adopting an animal will certainly let him experience 'humane' side of animals. Switching to Veganism could do wonders to lose weight and lead a healthy life. #Celebrities
