He may be starring in a series of blockbusters, but Chris Pratt still has his priorities in check. The A-lister opened up to ET at the NYC premiere on Monday of his upcoming western, The Magnificent Seven, about his rules when it comes to romance.

"I have heard some people say 'Don't go to bed mad.' I think that is garbage. Sometimes you've got to go to bed mad," he noted, adding, "but at least touch toes, you know what I mean? At least touch toes. 'We will deal with it later. I think I am going to get some sleep,' and touch toes."

Pratt, who is married to actress Anna Faris, is taking some time for his family after a grueling work schedule. In a recent interview with Parade the Jurassic World star revealed his decision to devote some time to his son, Jack, after his long absence.

"I've been on the road for 14 months – I did three movies back to back to back – so I'm taking six months off," he told the magazine. "I'm taking Jack to Jack's Beach – which is what we named the little stretch of beach on an island up on the San Juan Islands where we got a place. We're going to go back to the fort we built about a month and a half ago when we went for a short visit and see if that's still there. If not, we're going to build it again."

Pratt fans don't have to worry about missing out on the actor's talents. In addition to his role as Josh Faraday in The Magnificent Seven, he's also starring in Passengers alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, reprising his role as Peter Quill.

Scott Eastwood recently revealed that he lost out on the Passengers part to Pratt, but Pratt says he's all-too-familiar with not getting the call back.

"Oh my gosh, there is so many roles that I have lost out to other actors," he told ET. "Yeah, for years and years, and years I auditioned. I auditioned for things and lost out constantly. Yeah, this is part of the deal, you know, it is part of the deal, and you find out that a lot of times that is the way that it's meant to be."
