‘Parks and Recreation’ Star Chris Pratt Told by NBC Not to Tell Nude Photobombing Story
Chris Pratt has been warned by executives at NBC to not talk about an incident when he exposed his genitals while filming a TV show.
He was filming Parks and Recreation six years ago when he decided to prank co-star Rashida Jones by standing naked in her office. In initial scenes he wore flesh-colored underwear for the big reveal, but when he didn’t get the reaction he wanted he decided to bare all.
He tells the New York Daily News, “I did one (take) without them, and Amy (Poehler) was like, ‘Noo, nooo,’ and that is the take they ended up using.”
But it did not sit well with bosses at the network and they reprimanded the actor for stripping off.
He continues, “I got a letter from NBC saying I shouldn’t talk about it and shouldn’t rebel about it. I did the wrong thing and I pulled out my junk.
“Unfortunately, the protocol with that stuff is that you have to let everybody know so anybody who doesn’t want to see that can excuse themselves. Photobombing with the (crotch) is something you have to plan with NBC.”
