You may think that when a film shoot is done, the cast members get their pick of the props that were used on set, but sadly, that is not how it works. The companies who make the props often keep them for their portfolio. Sometimes props are reused, either for sequels, prequels, remakes, reboots or even just random movies.
On some films, actors are given memorabilia as gifts after shooting is completed. For example, Elijah Wood (Frodo) and Andy Serkis (Gollum) were given rings from The Lord of the Rings as gifts, symbolizing the fact that they were ring bearers and had completed their journey. After The Avengers was complete, Marvel gave Robert Downey Jr. the huge letter "A" from the Stark tower simply because he asked for it. As you can see, some filmmakers are quite gracious with the props from their movie sets, but not all of them are.
There are certain actors out there who play the game a little more dangerously. We hear stories of things going missing from movie sets all the time. Who's behind these thefts is almost never revealed, unless they're caught red-handed. Every once in a while, however, an actor will come forward and admit that they stole something from the set. Most often these are priceless items that mean something personal to the actor and the character they portrayed, and they just had to have it. Sometimes it's an expensive prop, but the actor has so much pull in the industry that no one can really say anything about it. Well, maybe they just don’t care enough to get the authorities involved. There are also those rare cases where an actor will steal something odd, seemingly inconsequential, which only begs the question: why? On this list are the best examples of all of these scenarios. Let's look at 15 actors who stole props from massive movie sets.
15 Dakota Johnson – Underwear From 50 Shades of Grey

1 Chris Pratt – Star-Lord's Jacket From Guardians of the Galaxy
Chris Pratt is the Internet's favorite person right now. Soon he will wear out his welcome, no doubt, but for now, he can do no wrong. So here's where we tell you why he's not so great. Nope. The reality is that Pratt is actually a sweetheart. When it was revealed that he stole Star-Lord's jacket from the set of Guardians of the Galaxy, people were like "whoa man, whoa." But then he said, "I stole the jacket and some of the wardrobe so that, if this movie comes out and does what everyone hopes it can, I can follow the example of someone, say, like Russell Wilson and go visit kids… If it was a big enough movie to where it would mean something to a kid who's sick in the hospital for Peter Quill or Star-Lord to come visit them, I'll do that," and people were like "aww bro, aww."
