Arnold Schwarzenegger mistakes ‘favorite son-in-law’ for Chris Evans

Arnold Schwarzenegger was embarrassed during an Instagram Live chat with his “favorite son-in-law”, Chris Pratt, after calling him Chris Evans.

Pratt invited Arnie to join him for a recent child hunger fundraiser online, introducing him as “a pretty important guy”.

The Marvel star added: “He is Mr. Universe. He is the Terminator. He’s the former Governor of California. He’s my father-in-law. My daughter’s grandfather. In a word, I better not screw this up or I will be terminated.”

But it was Schwarzenegger who messed up, entering the chat and saying, “Hello, Chris Evans.”

Realizing his error, Arnie quickly added, “Not Chris Evans, sorry. I’m gonna screw up this thing right from the beginning. Chris Pratt. I didn’t look at the cue cards the right way. Sorry about that.”

Pratt appeared less than pleased, prompting his father-in-law to add: “I mean, I should know your name. I should know your name… That’s for sure. You’re my favorite son-in-law.”

The Guardians of the Galaxy star, who married Katherine Schwarzenegger in 2019, responded: “I’m your only son-in-law! I better be your favorite.”

The rest of Pratt’s virtual event went off without a hitch and helped him raise over $615,000 (£451,000) for the non-profit Greater Good. The fundraiser also featured appearances from Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey, Jr.
