Chris Pratt, star of Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, had some interesting things to say about his new-found sex symbol status.

Not objectify women less, but objectify men just as often as we objectify women.” Not exactly our number one priority in achieving true gender equality, but OK, Chris! He went on to clarify his answer, saying, “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.
