You never know what’s going to come out of the mouth of actor Chris Pratt—but we do know what he smells like thanks to an amusing anecdote he shared with Seth Meyers.
Chris, who has recently been making the late-night television rounds to promote his Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers on May 3 and told the host about his first encounter with Tim McGraw—a meeting that took place at the Academy Awards.
“Tim and Faith [Hill], they’re awesome,” said Chris. “I’m a big country music fan and a huge fan of Tim McGraw. I did meet him. I have his cologne, yeah, Southern Blend. It’s really good. If you get a chance, get some. It’s nice. [My wife] Anna [Faris] loves it. And she always knows if I put a little Southern Blend on, she’s going to have to endure some lovemaking.
“We went to the Oscars and it was such an amazing night, star-studded night, and there’s Tim McGraw. And I’m just starstruck, you know, there’s Tim and Faith and I keep glancing at him . . . At the end of the show everyone was filing out . . . I’m looking at Tim McGraw as we’re filing out, I’m getting closer and closer [and thinking] ‘This is my chance to talk to Tim McGraw’ and he catches me staring at him a few times . . . he had performed a song that night. I said, ‘Hey, Tim, that was a great song tonight.’ He’s like, ‘Thank you,’ and he kinda like [thinks] ‘I’m going to avoid you, you might be a weirdo.’ I said, ‘I’m just a huge fan of both you [and Faith]’ and he’s like, ‘Thank you, thank you.’ I said, ‘I’m wearing your cologne,’ and I’m not sure if he was just, like, being polite, but he was like, ‘Ah, thank you.’ And then there was that moment I was like, ‘Oh, no. I’m wearing your cologne? No, no.’ Really gut-wrenching and embarrassing.”
