Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence are not ones to back down from fun, in fact, they are probably two of the most fun celebrities during interviews. However, there is one question that apparently put off the Passengers co-actors.
In a phone interview with KIIS Summer Fling Australia, Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence were asked by radio host Sophie Monk, “Your characters have sex on the kitchen table. What’s the most adventurous place you’ve had sex?”
“Airplane,” Pratt answered almost immediately.
“Really?” Monk replied, sounding very interested in the logistics of having sex in an airplane, even saying that she had always wanted to try it but she just couldn’t get the hang of it. She also asked Pratt if he had to hang from the ceiling to do it.
“I hung from the ceiling by my feet, like a bat,” Pratt responded.
When it was time for Lawrence to answer, however, things started getting awkward.
“I don’t really have anything, I like being safe,” Lawrence said reluctantly. “That’s what really turns me on, being safe.”
The radio show hosts laugh and had a short argument about how awkward the interview had become. After which a publicist’s voice could be heard saying, “Thanks!”
Next thing you know, Pratt and Lawrence were gone, ending the interview unexpectedly.
“Yeah, we already wrapped you, sorry, they’re already gone,” the publicist could be heard telling Monk and her co-host, Matty Acton.
“Sophie what did you do?” asked Acton. “What happened to you in there?”
“I didn’t do anything, we ran out of time!” She replied. “I didn’t do anything! We ran out of time and I wasted good time on stupid questions, that’s what I did.
She added: “[We got cut] because we were naughty.”

Perhaps Lawrence and Pratt had somewhere else to go to or maybe the interview got way too personal for J-Law but the point is, sometimes interviewers need to draw the line when it comes to the kind of questions they throw.
This is a common problem in Hollywood, a problem that most female celebrities face – they either only ask about celebrities’ clothes or about their love/ sex lives. It’s also why the #AskHerMore campaign was born, which encourages reporters to ask more in-depth and substantial questions to female actors.
