Playing Chris Pratt Pokes Fun at His 'Vanity Fair' Photoshoot in Hilarious Instagram Pics

No one could ever accuse Chris Pratt of taking himself too seriously.

The Passengers star showed off his self-deprecating humor on Instagram this week, posting pics from his recent Vanity Fair photoshoot along with his own joke commentary.

In a post shared Thursday, the actor gave a comical backstory behind one photo in which he stares off into the distance while standing between two stones.

"I have to credit the brilliant photographer @markseliger who discovered me wedged between these two rocks," Pratt joked. "It took him all day to pull me out. I had been stuck there for hours. I had barely enough strength to stare pensively into the distance. I mean, it was bad. Anyways, I almost had to chew off the lower half of my body to get out. But I'm not flexible enough. Bottom line, I could have died. But thanks to the brilliant photographer @markseliger I'm alive to tell the story, which is currently being optioned for a movie."

And here I am casually sniffing my knuckles.

In another shot, Pratt joked that while fans might have thought he was giving a sultry look to camera, what he was actually doing was "casually sniffing [his] knuckles."

Here's me warming up after having to be in that freakin' cold ass water forever.

Last year, Pratt similarly mocked his photospread for In Style after being named the magazine's Man of Style.

"Full disclosure I did not pick out any of the clothes which is kinda funny for a guy who is called the 'man of style,'" he wrote at the time. "I mostly like T shirts with American flags on them. Usually I go for the one on the top of the 'shirt pile.'"

Inside the pages of Vanity Fair's February issue, the 37-year-old actor opens up about what his life was like before fame and stardom.

"I was selling coupons for things like oil changes or trips to a spa. I was great at that," he tells the mag, noting the gig helped prepare him for getting rejected for acting roles later in life. "That's why I believe in God and the divine. I feel like it was perfectly planned. People talk about rejection in Hollywood. I'm like, 'You're outta your f****n' mind. Did you ever have someone sic their dog on you at an audition?'"

Pratt's Vanity Fair issue is on newsstands now.
