Arnold Schwarzenegger Learned You Really Can’t Prank Danny DeVito With Weed
Say what you want about Arnold Schwarzenegger, but this guy had a life. The actor, bodybuilding icon and former governor of the state of California apparently started to take things a little easier at the age of 74, as he told Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday that his mornings consist of now to rise early in order to feed his incredibly strange menagerie. of animals. The image of a slipper-clad Arnold crawling into the kitchen to share oatmeal cookies with a mini-horse, mini-donkey and a few dogs is both adorable and weird enough to seem fair to one person. whose life has been half a century of eventful celebrity.
Striking a few bodybuilding poses for old times sake, Schwarzenegger was otherwise comfortable regale Kimmel with a few more anecdotes worthy of a lifetime of rabid Hollywood ambition. If you’re Arnold, of course, you’ll be sharing an office space with Johnny Carson, Shaquille O’Neal, and Oliver Stone at the same time, and you’ll have to guide your guests past the stench of Stone’s constant marijuana smoke. . Plus, you’ll have to answer Kimmel’s post-government questions about whether or not it’s business as usual for a head of state to dump confidential and incriminating documents. in the shit rush to cover a stain of betrayal. (For the record, Schwarzenegger claims that’s not something he did, though the plus-size jeans he dutifully fitted for tenant Shaq probably could have taken care of the job.)
Schwarzenegger, who can’t exactly take the high road about Stone’s pot (to be fair, he did downgrade pot possession penalties as Governor), also shared the time that longtime friend and frequent co-star Danny DeVito directly administered to him on the set of Junior. DeVito, being everyone’s favorite comedy gremlin, invited Arnold to his trailer for a home-cooked Italian meal one day according to Schwarzenegger, topped off with a fine Cuban cigar. Cut to Arnold erasing his lines after lunch, with the sneering DeVito finally revealing he stuffed the Montecristo Aniversario with weed as director Ivan Reitman wondered how he ended up directing a pair of stoner goofs .
And while Schwarzenegger likes to brag about his penchant for on-set pranks, it must be said that his plan to pull the exact same trick on DeVito later smacks of a serious lack of originality. Not to mention the futility, for, seeing a smiling Schwarzenegger offer a huge cigar one day in his office, the wily DeVito sniffed out the copycat prank almost immediately. “He’s got a nose for marijuana,” Schwarzenegger noted of his former and future on-screen twin. The two will team up with Tracy Morgan as their other long-lost mismatched sibling in the Reitman-directed film. Tripletsbecause life is now a 30 Rock to joke. Plus, Arnold probably shouldn’t bother trying that weed cigar trick again, with Morgan and DeVito on set.
