Over the years, Arnold Schwarzenegger has played many roles not just in his professional life but in his personal life as well. He has been a son, a father, and a husband. However, Arnold, being a father-in-law, is one of his fun roles to be around. At least that’s what his son-in-law Chris Pratt thinks.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is undoubtedly one of the most versatile human beings on the planet. From bodybuilding to acting to politics, he has tried out everything that came his way. Arnold has received immense love in every role he has played. The clear reason behind this is the enthusiasm and energy he puts into it. Even at 74, Arnold has a will and hunger of a 17-year-old who wants to accomplish every dream that he ever saw.

What gift did Chris Pratt get from Arnold Schwarzenegger on his birthday?

Well, Chris Pratt aka ‘Starlord’ begins the story by saying, “You know what, of the many things that are surprising to me about Arnold. He is an incredible gift-giver.” Obviously, with that statement, anyone would think he is praising his father-in-law, only to realize he meant it sarcastically. In reality, Chris was saying this because Arnold gave him a promotional item as a birthday gift.

He explained, “He got me a really beautiful cigar box with the artwork from the Tomorrow War. It’s my picture, and it says the Tomorrow War. He signed happy birthday Chris love Arnold.”

Well, for starters, he was the main lead in the Tomorrow War movie. At least Arnold could have chosen a different movie item, maybe one that does not star his son-in-law. However, adding a note for Chris was perhaps his way of expressing that, irrespective of the gift, he actually cares about his son-in-law. Some time back, Arnold also addressed his son-in-law as Chris Evans during an interview. Though, the confusion about all the Chris in Hollywood is quite acceptable, given that there are quite a few in the industry.

Clearly, more than a father-in-law, Arnold is like a friend to Chris Pratt. A friend who is always trying to pull some banters and pranks on him.
