Good thing Arnold Schwarzenegger didn’t listen to Mark Hamill.
“The Last Jedi” star revealed on Saturday how he once recommended the “Terminator” star lose his instantly recognizable accent and last name.
“Arnold Schwarzenegger asked me for advice when he was just starting out,” Hamill tweeted. “I told him to lose his accent for a wider range of roles and to change his last name since no one could pronounce it. He did the opposite and became one of the biggest stars EVER.”
Schwarzenegger, 71, did not hold the poor advice against Hamill, noting how the former Governor of California was an exception to the rule.
“Your advice was absolutely correct under any normal circumstances, and those were the rules back then,” Schwarzenegger replied. “I just happen to be a rule-breaker.”
In the end, the whole acting thing seemed to work out pretty well for both Hamill and Schwarzenegger.
