While asking the 33-year-old author about her childhood, Brie Bella asked if Arnie’s “buff” physique and stardom made her feel singled out. However, Schwarzenegger didn’t recall feeling that “anything was different” for her or her siblings. “My dad, like physically, he was bigger” than the other “dads” Katherine Schwarzenegger came across, but besides that, Arnie was like any other parent.

However, now that she sees her husband, Chris Pratt’s films, she realizes the Terminator actor mostly stars in action movies. “The movies that he filmed when we were growing up were not kid-friendly,” said Katherine Schwarzenegger. However, such isn’t the case with her husband, Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt.

While Chris Pratt has also built a reputation as an action hero, he started out in comedy. From starring in superhero films to his latest video game adaptation, The Super Mario Bros. Movie, Pratt has a versatile filmography. “I didn’t see anything of my dad’s until I was way older,” said Arnie’s daughter. However, Schwarzenegger did make one kid-friendly film during his prime, and it became a classic.

His desperate quest to get his son the toy leads to a hilarious adventure.

While Jingle All the Way didn’t win any Critics’ Choice awards in 1990, the kid-friendly movie was a box office success and has become a timeless classic. Even today, the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger film is a favorite for many to watch during the holidays. While the Austrian Oak might have starred in only one children’s film, it is a film for the ages.
