Arnold Schwarzenegger failed at revenge-pranking Twins costar Danny DeVito with marijuana cigar

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been ready greater than three a long time to revenge prank his Twins costar Danny DeVito. Sadly for Schwarzenegger, DeVito smoked out his plot.

A bit background first: Again in Might, whereas responding to a fan’s query about his favourite on-set story in his monthly newsletter, Schwarzenegger revealed that again within the Nineteen Eighties, when the pair have been filming Twins, DeVito gave him a stogie with somewhat little bit of one thing additional. 

“He’d always make me the most delicious pasta at lunch, and we’d eat and schmooze and have a cigar before we went back to work. One day, he packed my cigar with marijuana without telling me,” Schwarzenegger recounted.

Unsurprisingly, the smoking sesh left Schwarzenegger “speechless.”

“My brain had completely forgotten the scene I had no trouble with before lunch. Danny was laughing up a storm, and [director] Ivan [Reitman] flipped the cameras to film Danny’s close-up so I could read my lines off the page and we wouldn’t waste any time,” Schwarzenegger continued. “As we went on, it all slowly came back to me and I could join in the laughter and finish my scenes.”

In Schwarzenegger’s latest October e-newsletter, he revealed that he not too long ago tried to drag the identical precise prank on DeVito when the 2 met up in particular person for a Twins sequel occasion (the place they twinned in Hawaiian shirts).

“This month, I also got together with my friend Danny DeVito to promote our movie Triplets! Ivan Reitman, our director who you know from Twins, Kindergarten Cop, and Ghostbusters, wanted to get us together with our new, third brother, Tracy Morgan over Zoom. Naturally, I saw this as the perfect opportunity to bring back a prank Danny pulled on me all those years ago on the set of Twins,” the previous governor shared.

“You may remember the story about Danny putting marijuana in my cigar,” he continued. “Well, this time we turned the tables! We waited until the end of the shoot and gave Danny the gift.”

Sadly for Schwarzenegger, DeVito turned out to be the wiser “twin” and figured issues out.

“But unfortunately, he still has the nose of a bloodhound, and sniffed out the special ingredient right away,” Schwarzenegger wrote in his e-newsletter, attaching a video exhibiting the 2 collectively once more, full with cigar trade.

A rep for DeVito did not instantly reply to a request for remark from EW on Sunday.

Schwarzenegger opened up about his personal historical past with marijuana on Jimmy Kimmel Reside again in April 2021, when the late-night host requested him a couple of photograph in his April e-newsletter showing the bodybuilder in the 1970s with Tommy Chong. Schwarzenegger shared a narrative from again within the day about smoking just a few hits earlier than understanding at the gymnasium but told the late-night host he stopped using marijuana in 1975 as he targeted on his profession and enterprise alternatives.
