The action star of the 90s saw his son-in-law’s latest action flick and praised him for his hard work. Arnold Schwarzenegger tweeted,
“I saw #GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol3 last night and WOW. @prattprattpratt, you crushed it. A non-stop, perfect mix of comedy and action. I loved it and I’m very, very proud of you.”
In an interview with ET, Pratt addressed the tweet and thanked his father-in-law. The Marvel star said, “He was so nice to give me love and support on his social media. He really liked the movie… If he didn’t like it, I don’t think he would post it.” For his part, Pratt revealed a sweet tidbit about his family. The actor revealed that his children call their grandpa ‘Opa.’
Arnold Schwarzenegger is from Austria and Opa is a common nickname there for grandfather. Fans are loving the sweet relationship between the in-laws and can’t have enough of it. So they expressed their admiration for it under Schwarzenegger’s tweet.
Fans Love The Support Arnold Schwarzenegger Showed Chris Pratt
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Chris Pratt’s fans are loving the praise the former decided to shower on the latter. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been receiving rave reviews online and has debuted to a great Rotten Tomatoes audience score of 96% and critics score of 81%. The film is expected to give Marvel its lost shine back and fans are confident that it will happen after seeing the stellar praise from Schwarzenegger.
Chris Pratt also revealed that he deeply admires the Total Recall star and once tried to give him an homage by saying a variation of his iconic “I’ll be back” dialogue from The Terminator in his 2021 film The Tomorrow War. But the actor said in an interview with NY Live that his way of saying it or even the scene where he said it didn’t match up to Schwarzenegger’s style.
He recalled saying to his father-in-law,
“It just pales in comparison to any time you’ve (Arnold Schwarzenegger) ever delivered that iconic line. I’m just saying it like a guy who’s going into the room. There’s nothing iconic about it.”
Fans would certainly love to hear Schwarzenegger deliver his iconic line again.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is now in theaters.
