Chris Pratt Details Awkward Run-In with Tim McGraw


Even stars get star struck sometimes.

Actor Chris Pratt dropped by Late Night with Seth Meyers and revealed the first time he met Tim McGraw conversation didn’t go exactly as planned.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 leading man told the late night funny man things got weird when he met Tim backstage at the Academy Awards.

“I’m looking at Tim McGraw, and as we’re filing out, I’m getting closer and closer, and I’m thinking, ‘This is my chance to talk to Tim McGraw,’” Chris says. “And he catches me staring at him a few times. And I say—he performed a song that night—I say, ‘Tim, that was a great song tonight.’ And he was like, ‘Thank you,’ but in the ‘I’m going to avoid you, you might be a weirdo.’”

Instead of stopping the conversation, Chris kept addressing the country star and the awkwardness ensued.

“And I said, ‘I’m just a huge fan of both you and [Faith Hill].’ He’s like, ‘Thank you, thank you.’ I said, ‘I’m wearing your cologne,’” he recalled. “I’m not sure if he was just being polite, but he was like, ‘Aw, thank you.’”

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is in theaters now.
