Chris Pratt keeps cutting Jennifer Lawrence out of his photos

Updated: 

Chris Pratt has been subtly pranking Jennifer Lawrence to the delight of fans.

The actor, who co-stars with Jennifer in forthcoming sci-fi thriller Passengers, has been cutting her out of all his Instagram uploads.

Chris came up with the prank after receiving repeated requests from fans to take a selfie with Oscar-winner Jennifer.

Sometimes we get the back of her head.

Or just her hand and mouth.

And in this video we even get almost a full-on glimpse of the actress (wait for it).

Earlier this week the 37-year-old said Jennifer was "truly one of the greatest actresses I've ever had the pleasure to work with.

"She acts like Adele sings. You just sit back and you think, 'damn, some people...'. She's a terrible singer! But she's a wonderful actress."

The 26-year-old has been nominated for four Academy Awards and won the best actress prize for her performance in 2012´s Silver Linings Playbook.

The pair appear in the intergalactic movie as two spaceship passengers who fall in love after a malfunction leads them both to wake up 30 years into a 120-year mission to a distant planet.
