*If you’re a fan of Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt, don’t be upset if you meet him and he won’t take a picture with you.

In a new interview with “Cigar Aficionado“, Chris said, “If I go out and want to do normal things, I have to be comfortable disappointing people. So, I just don’t take pictures with people. Because that’s not about enjoying the moment, it’s about stealing the moment to brag about later. So, I say, ‘Would you settle for a handshake?’ And then they take the picture anyway.

 

*81-year-old Burt Reynolds just did an interview with Katie Couric to promote his new movie called “Dog Years“, with Ariel Winter who you know from “Modern Family“. He told Katie quote, “I’m going to keep working until they shoot me and take me off and bury me. And I hope they film it.

His character is an aging actor with a life story similar to his own.

*Dancing With The Stars last night was Boyband night…Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys was a guest judge and he did a great job. If you don’t recall, he competed on a previous season.

Each couple did their own dance, but then were also split up into Team Girl Group: Simone Biles, Normani Kordei, Nancy Kerrigan, Heather Morris, along with their male partners who all danced to a medley of “My Boyfriend’s Back” by The Chiffons, “No Scrubs” by TLC and “BO$$” by Fifth Harmony.

And then there was Team Boyband: Rashad Jennings, Bonner Bolton, Nick Viall & their partners who danced to a medley of “Dancing Machine” by Jackson 5, “You Got It (The Right Stuff)” by New Kids on the Block and “Best Song Ever” by One Direction.

After a PERFECT score, Heather Morris and Maks got sent home, shockingly! I will brag a minute though- I got a retweet from the official DWTS twitter page. Freaked out a bit.
