And I can see his point! When was the last time you saw a movie that had a straight white male as the protagonist, huh? I swear, if I see one more goddamn movie with a black lesbian in a wheelchair as the lead. Chris Pratt is nice to look at, but his actual demographic might be “30s, white, male, dumb.” Star-Lord did the cover of softcore gay porn mag, Men’s Fitness, and opined that Hollywood isn’t telling stories that represent people like him.
I don’t see personal stories that necessarily resonate with me, because they’re not my stories,” Pratt, 37, told the magazine. “I think there’s room for me to tell mine, and probably an audience that would be hungry for them. The voice of the average, blue-collar American isn’t necessarily represented in Hollywood.”
This reads like one of those secret Trump supporter dog whistle utterings. The dude can’t come right out and express support for the MAGA doomsday plan because he doesn’t want to jeopardize his money situation, but he’s not quite savvy enough to completely mask his allegiances. Chris, be brave and be proud to be a Trumpet. You might cause a large portion of the population to side-eye your dumb ass, but that’s also the side that WON’T eventually have secret police dragging you away to an internment camp for expressing a contrary opinion!
The Men’s Fitness scribe must have been unable to conceal his “for real, bitch?” face, because Chris quickly segued into how it’s not about politics. It’s about coming together as one beautiful
straight, white race.
“I really feel there’s common ground out there that’s missed because we focus on the things that separate us,” he said. “You’re either the red state or the blue state, the left or the right. Not everything is politics. And maybe that’s something I’d want to help bridge, because I don’t feel represented by either side.”
Chris hails from Minnesota. This surprised me because, after reading about his concerns, shouldn’t his point of origin be “bizarro universe where the struggle is real for straight white men?” Someone slightly more woke (probably not wife Anna Faris, because her ass can’t even keep pets barely alive) must have pointed out to Chris how his interview came off, because he suddenly had a miraculous Twitter revelation about it.
That was actually a pretty stupid thing to say. I'll own that. There's a ton of movies about blue collar America. https://t.co/DclYfNsiv3

Chris could always follow up this revelation by programming a film festival featuring movies about white, blue-collar America. But I’m not sure attendees have several years to spare.
