In a recent photo of the two together, Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt wishes his father-in-law Arnold Schwarzenegger a happy 75th birthday.
Chris Pratt, who plays Arnold Schwarzenegger in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, just shared a photo wishing him a happy birthday. Given that Pratt is wed to Katherine Schwarzenegger. Arnold is Pratt’s father-in-law. Katherine and Pratt have two daughters together.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has starred in several action movies throughout the years, including Predator, Conan the Barbarian, True Lies, Total Recall, and many others. The Mr. Olympia seven-time champion is also a former governor of California from 2003 to 2011. He was born in Austria.
When Pratt starred as the Marvel character Star-Lord in filmmaker James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014, he made a name for himself as a humorous performer who transitioned into a superhero. Since then, Pratt’s career has taken off, with him playing Star-Lord in a number of MCU movies and diversifying into other brands like Jurassic World.
The actor has begun to emulate Schwarzenegger by taking on more action-packed parts, such as James Reece in Prime Video’s series adaptation of Jack Carr’s The Terminal List and, most recently, The Tomorrow War.
Pratt posted a picture of himself smoking a cigar with his Terminator father-in-law to mark Schwarzenegger’s 75th birthday. Schwarzenegger and Pratt have both appeared in photos before, but this is the first time Pratt has posted a photo with his father-in-law on social media, emphasizing their close bond.
It seems he has a happy and healthy relationship with his father-in-law, Arnold Schwarzenegger, after seeing the recent wholesome Instagram post where the duo looked very happy and smiley.
The image was captioned: “Happy birthday to the man, the myth, and the legend. Love you @schwarzenegger!“
It’s even more intriguing since Pratt is continuing the upward trend of adopting the action hero character, which was Schwarzenegger’s mainstay for the duration of the pinnacle of his Hollywood career. As Pratt takes up the role from his father-in-law in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Schwarzenegger will undoubtedly be in the audience.
