Chris Pratt has revealed being called by his actual name is one of his biggest icks.
However, it turns out that the Marvel actor – whose legal name is Christopher Michael Pratt – actually hates being referred to as Chris.
“No one calls me Chris,” he revealed. “I went golfing with my friend, Chad, my pastor the other day and he was like, ‘No one calls you Chris? I’m gonna call you Chris. Alright, Chris. You’re up’.
“And I was like, ‘No, it feels weird. It’s not my name. Don’t call me Chris’.”
But Chris… sorry, we mean CP isn’t actually the only big-screen star whose name is a bit of a sensitive subject.
Last year, Anne Hathaway expressed her regret about using the formal version of her name as her acting moniker, when she actually goes by “Annie” in her personal life.
“They asked me, ‘What do you want your name to be?’, and I was like, ‘Well, it should be my name. My name’s Anne Hathaway,’” she recalled to US talk show host Jimmy Fallon.
“And so that seemed like the right choice, but it never occurred to me that for the rest of my life people would call me Anne.”
She added that on set she’s referred to by nicknames like “Hath” and “Ms H”, with the Oscar-winning star urging Jimmy to call her “anything but Anne”.
