Arnold Schwarzenegger allegedly played a very naughty prank on an unsuspecting intern while filming a TV movie during the early 1980s.
According to costume designer Warden Neil, the Terminator star played the joke in question while shooting the television flick The Jayne Mansfield Story. Neil claimed that the incident took place when he and an intern stopped by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s trailer.
“I got a young intern… Her parents even flew to meet me to make sure everything was good. We’re heading towards Arnold’s trailer for a wardrobe fitting, and she knocks on the door and goes, ‘Hi, Arnold. Are you decent?’ And he goes, ‘Yes, come in,'” Neil explained.
Thinking that Arnold Schwarzenegger was serious, the pair entered his trailer. Unfortunately, the costume designer and his intern weren’t fully prepared for what they encountered.
“He’s standing there stark naked and she bursts into tears and runs from the trailer. He burst out laughing, thinking it was the funniest thing,” Warden added.
Although the costume designer insists that the story you just read actually took place, representatives for Arnold Schwarzenegger officially deny that anything of the sort took place on the set of The Jayne Mansfield Story.
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s penchant for pranks and practical jokes reportedly helped him develop a friendship with former cinematic rival Sylvester Stallone. The pair bonded during their time on the action flick Escape Plan, an experience that ultimately resulted in both actors getting strip searched.
“We worked on a NASA base, and I call the gate and go, ‘There is some suspicious stuff going on in a black van…’ they literally strip-searched him, and then he got me back and I got strip-searched. [Arnold] is constantly goofy,” Stallone explained.
The Inquisitr reported last year that Arnold Schwarzenegger and his Escape Plan co-star apparently hated each other intensely for over two decades. Despite their rivalry, this didn’t stop opportunistic producers from trying to get the pair to star in movies together.
“The interesting thing really, is that for decades, they’ve tried to put us together in a movie and the scripts were horrible. It was like dreadful. We could not have accepted any of that,” Arnold Schwarzenegger explained.
He added, “One movie wanted us to be undercover agents in drag, and another movie wanted us to change from human beings to animals. So he was the dog and I was the cat and we were fighting each other. It was some comedy. It was all this ludicrous stuff.”
