Look, that Chris Pratt photo shoot for Vanity Fair was bad.
I know we were all disappointed by this. Chris Pratt is charming and funny and relatable. He's also very attractive.
All we wanted were some photographs that captured that charm and attractiveness, that we could pine and objectify our hearts out.
Instead, we got an odd photo of Chris Pratt popping out of the water like a gopher.
But don't despair because these photos did bring one great thing with them: hilarious, self-deprecating commentary from the man himself.
On Thursday the 37-year-old actor shared some highly entertaining behind-the-scenes insight on this Instagram.
First, Chris confirmed the water he was in was "cold AF."
He also gave us a detailed insight into his stream of consciousness and encouraged everyone to buy the issue with possibly my favorite quote:
But at least he got to warm up by the fire after the "freakin' cold ass water."
Next, Chris gave us the scoop on this photo: He was just waiting for the shoot to start!
He recalled the beer he drank on the shoot "tasted so good" and shared a nice little anecdote about beer.
Great story, Chris!
The story behind this photo is pretty straight-forward.
While it turns out this photo has far more going on than anyone expected.
Honestly, this whole photo shoot was worth it just for that Instagram caption.
Thank you, Chris Pratt, for once again saving the day. I might just hit up Rite Aid and buy this issue after all.
