Both comedians visited The Graham Norton Show and discussed their first headshots and the stories behind the photos.
Pratt said he was in a West Hollywood post office when a man approached him about taking his picture: “This guy was like, ‘You look familiar, have I shot you?’ and I was like, ‘I’ve never been shot.’ ” The man offered to photograph Pratt; he accepted and was given the roll of film.
“I have no idea how you got those,” McCarthy told host Graham Norton in reference to her two headshots. “I literally thought I had the only two hard copies, and when you sent them to me, I thought, ‘Dear God, they’re out there.’ “
McCarthy credited her commercial agent with the two character headshots, one of which depicted her with her tongue out, granny glasses on and hair frizzy (when she was 26) and another that featured country-themed props.
“I’m in like a full sweat,” said McCarthy when Norton revealed the second photo, which showed McCarthy with a short-haired wig, miniature cowboy hat and dangly cowboy-boot earrings. “That is from Western Barbie. I took her hat — it’s a cowboy hat from Barbie — and boots. I made the earrings.”
Vanity Fair first reported about Pratt and McCarthy’s visit to Graham Norton.
The full episode airs June 6 on BBC America.
