Coyote Hating Chris Pratt is GQ’s Man of the Year
Pratt expressed to GQ that he was ready to leave Parks and Recreation behind.
“I think there’s a collective feeling that people are creatively spent. You kind of run out of ideas,” Pratt says.
He goes on to reveal that he is looking to try his hand at directing.
“I’m always biting my tongue,” he says. “When I’m on set, I kind of wish I could just tell everybody what to do. If I could tell everybody what to do, it would be great, and it would be done faster. And so that’s what I’m working toward. I want control. I want control over something.”
And then Pratt went on to talk about how much he loves guns and shooting.
Pratt also owns a lot of guns and likes to hunt, and reportedly he is an excellent shot. Pratt shared with GQ that he particularly loves to hunt coyotes, which he shoots, skins, and tans by hand.
“Coyotes are assholes, and they’ll eat your dog,” he says in his GQ interview. “I do a lot of predator hunting, farm varmints, out in Wyoming. Oh, my God. Get a farmer that’s just got too many and he’s like, ‘Fuckin’ kill as many as you want.’” Sometimes, Pratt says, he cleans coyote skins with his own urine.
The December issue of GQ will be available on newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on November 18 and nationally November 25.
