Arnold Schwarzenegger is known for a lot of different iconic roles both in movies and in politics, even. However, the former Governor of California continues to add to another a title, “Grandfather.” Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger is about to welcome yet another grandchild from his daughter and her husband Chris Pratt.

People revealed the exclusive news that the Pratts would be adding to their family and Arnold would be a grandfather to another child.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s ‘Jingle All The Way’

Arnold has appeared in so many different movies over the years. The legendary actor has had quite the run. However, with it being the holiday season, lots of folks are revisiting his Christmas classic ‘Jingle All The Way’. The movie has been a hit for a multitude of reasons, and folks still rewatch it around this time each year because of it. The cast was stacked, including Rita Wilson, wife of Tom Hanks who played Arnold’s wife in the film.

She doesn’t enjoy revisiting it as much, though. She told Insider, “I know a lot of people love this movie.” Uh oh.

“Why did my character not know that her husband Howard, who talks like [Arnold Schwarzenegger] and is played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, was Turbo Man. How did she not know that?” It is a fair point by Wilson. The character should have recognized Turbo Man as her husband Arnold in the film. The voice is rather obvious, and it was something folks noticed at the time.

However, it is indeed a children’s movie so most folks looked past Wilson not being able to recognize her own husband at the time. She hilariously continues, “Let’s see: He has an accent. he looks exactly like him. He’s wearing a half mask.” The Turbo Man does not really hide who Arnold is at all. Jamie, his son, in the movie gets up close, too, but does not recognize his dad instantly, either. She continues, “but my character does not know. And it made me just feel like, that’s just a little too stupid.”

Sinbad on ‘Jingle All The Way’

It wasn’t just Wilson and Arnold who had starring roles in the Christmas classic. Sinbad also had a big-time role and he told The Arnold Fans, “Somebody STOLE my TurboMan doll! I think my nephew stole it. I had a Dimentor Doll, and Arnold Schwarzenegger lied to me and said that he would get me a new one, and they NEVER made them.

He continued, “I cried. I think that they didn’t want the competition between TurboMan and my doll.”

When Sinbad was asked about the sequel starring Larry The Cable Guy he said, “What they are doing a new version without me! Ain’t gonna work!”

You can watch ‘Jingle All The Way’ starring Arnold Schwarzenegger on a multitude of streaming platforms.
