Pratt revealed that he has asthma, but wouldn’t turn down Schwarzenegger’s offer for a cigar.
“I mean there’s nothing manlier than Arnold Schwarzenegger smoking a cigar. And when you’re part of, you know, bringing his granddaughter into the world, he comes and brings you a cigar. And he’s like, ‘Let’s go out and smoke these,'” the actor said in the interaction.
Pratt eventually wound up getting a lung infection from smoking the Cohiba cigars. Despite his wife insisting he shouldn’t be smoking, he had no regrets.
“So, I go and smoke the cigar and I’m like, ‘This is good. Hmm. Oh, yeah. Cohiba? Nice.’ And then woke up the next day. Massive lung infection,” revealed the actor.
Pratt also went on to say how Schwarzenegger preferred to be called ‘Opa’ in the family, which means ‘grandfather’ in German, owing to his Austrian ancestry.
