Schwarzenegger, 29, foreshadowed her romance with her now-fiance nearly a year before she met the “Avengers” actor. In an August 2017 interview with “Access Hollywood,” Schwarzenegger was asked which famous Chris she preferred — Chris Pratt, Chris Hemsworth or Chris Evans.
The “Rock What You’ve Got” author initially said “Chris Evans,” but quickly changed her answer to Pratt because “Chris Pratt’s been looking good lately, so you never know.”
Pratt’s jaw dropped when he was shown the clip Monday during his appearance on “Access.”
“When she said Chris Evans, my heart sank, and then she rescued it!” Pratt said during the interview to promote “The Lego Movie 2.”
"That's so sweet. I literally have never seen that before so thank you for showing me that. I'm really moved,” he added.
Pratt and Schwarzenegger announced earlier this month they were engaged after seven months of dating.
“Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you,” he wrote in an Instagram post. “Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!”
Schwarzenegger’s father, actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, seemed to approve of Pratt when he fangirled over the 39-year-old actor in a 2015 tweet. The “Terminator” star showed how ecstatic he was to have his autograph next to Pratt’s on a board at “The Late Late Show with James Corden.”
“Right next to friggin’ Arnold!” Pratt wrote in June 2015 that was pictured in a Twitter post.
Schwarzenegger returned the sentiment by tweeting, “I’m right next to friggin’ CHRIS PRATT. Congrats on the monster opening weekend, @prattprattpratt. You deserve it.”
