Chris Pratt is king of selfies

Chris Pratt says you should never look ‘too self-aware’ in a selfie.

The Parks and Recreations actor is known for his good looks as well as his acting ability so it’s no surprise he knows his best angles.

And Chris was happy to share his do’s and don’t’s during a chat with MTV News.

“It's important to gaze at your own image in the phone rather than make eye contact with yourself," said Pratt, while pointing to a picture he had taken of himself with no shirt on. “Otherwise, you'll look "too self-aware."

Having starred in films including Zero Dark Thirty, Moneyball and Bride Wars, Chris knows how important it is to act natural.

And this same rule applies to taking selfies.

“[It needs to look like] you just tripped, fell, and landed on some abs,” he laughed.

While the 34-year-old believes in a natural shot, he accepts that it can take a while to achieve the right look.

He even admitted that it took quite a lot of goes before he achieved the perfect shirtless selfie on show during the interview.

“[It was the] best photo of about 40 that I took,” he conceded.

Thankfully Chris doesn’t have to worry about looking good in his latest film, The Lego Movie.

Chris plays the films hero Emmet, an ordinary construction worker mini-figure who is mistaken for a master builder who can save the entire Lego universe.

“The reason Emmet is so likeable, I think - early on in the film, he realises he's invisible. That no one knows who he is, he's not memorable to anybody, he's just kind of a nothing," Chris explained in an interview provided by Warner Bros. "That's a little heartbreaking and so for me, that's why I kind of fall with this character.”
