Jennifer Lawrence has always turned film promo into a game – last year she weirded out interviewers by joking she’d slept with both her Hunger Games costars and confronted a couple of serial prankster interviewers by pranking them right back. But in the past couple of weeks, her Passengers costar Chris Pratt has been outshining her in the piss-taking stakes by cropping her out of almost every single photo he’s posted to his Instagram.
First of all he just cropped her out completely
But then he began a campaign of aggressive cropping
Literally cutting half her face off in some cases, like she was a stranger
Then he took a shot of the back of her head
And he continued by blocking most of her head out with his own
Then he went back to cropping half her face off again, only with Jamie Oliver this time
And just blocking her face outright, with some cue cards
Not before he Photoshopped her face onto his own. Better than nothing, eh Chris.
Don’t worry: this isn’t some long-running feud. He’s full of praise for his costar’s acting chops, recently telling GQ: “She is truly one of the greatest actresses I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. She acts like Adele sings… She’s a terrible singer! But she’s a wonderful actress. She could just do it. She could just turn it on and it strikes emotion in you, like some people can just open their mouths and sing.”
Passengers is released in the UK on December 21.
