Arnold Schwarzenegger confuses his ‘favorite son-in-law’ Chris Pratt with Chris Evans

‘The Terminator’ praised his daughter’s husband during an Instagram charity telethon

Oops, wrong Chris! Arnold Schwarzenegger accidentally called his daughter Katherine Schwarzenegger’s husband Chris Pratt by the wrong name. The Terminator actor made the gaffe while participating in his son-in-law’s Instagram telethon to raise funds for food banks and hunger-relief organizations. “Hello, Chris Evans. Oh not Chris Evans, sorry. I’m going to screw up this whole thing right from the beginning. Chris Pratt,” Arnold said.

“I didn’t look at the cue cards the right way. Sorry about that. I should know your name. I should know your name. That’s for sure. You’re my favorite son-in-law,” he added, to which Chris replied, “I’m your only son-in-law! I better be your favorite.”

All kidding aside, Arnold only had kind words for Chris. “I think the world of you, not just because you’re my son-in-law, but I mean you are also so giving,” the dad of five gushed. “You think not only about yourself and about your career, but also about other people.”


Last year, fellow Marvel stars and Chris’ wife Katherine came to his defense after the 41-year-old actor was dubbed “the worst Chris” following a tweet that went viral. In October, filmmaker Amy Berg tweeted: “One has to go,” along with photos of Chris Pratt, Chris Pine, Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans.

The Jurassic World actor addressed the controversy while discussing the AGBO Superhero Fantasy Football League, which included Evans and Hemsworth, in a video on his Instagram Story. “I made it into the finals! I’m in the finals! How did this happen? It’s a 14-man league. I had 14th draft pick. You know how hard that is?” Chris said (via Just Jared). “I was last. It was very traumatic. Anyone who’s been picked last know how that feels. But somehow I was in, like, 10th place after the draft, and like eighth place after the season.”

“I snuck two very, very close victories off, the most recent against Chris Evans. He had beat Chris Hemsworth last week, so I guess we can finally put an end to that debate. Who’s the better Chris?” he added, “It’s one of them. I do have them in body fat content, though. So, I am more buoyant. Take that, gang.”
