Arnold Schwarzenegger reveals the trick of revenge he put on Twins 2 co-star Danny DeVito in a hilarious behind-the-scenes video.
Arnold Schwarzenegger pranks Twins 2 Co-star Danny DeVito in a hilarious behind-the-scenes video. Schwarzenegger and DeVito became an unusual duo in the 1988 comedy directed by Ivan Reitman Twins. Thanks largely to the chemistry of the stars, the film was a huge hit as it grossed $ 216 million.
After this success, Schwarzenegger and DeVito got together again in 1994 Junior with Reitman again in the team. Unfortunately, this collaboration would lead to more horror than laughter – no surprise given the bizarre premise that Schwarzenegger would become pregnant. Now the much older team of Schwarzenegger, DeVito, and Reitman are back for a third try, and they wisely chose to do another Twins Film instead Junior 2. Officially titled Triplets, the continuation of Twins takes the logical next step by adding a third, completely dissimilar sibling, played by the always hilarious Tracy Morgan (after Eddie Murphy was originally supposed to play the role).
As a matter of fact Triplets starts and it seems that Schwarzenegger and DeVito still have their weird chemistry. In a clip just posted by Schwarzenegger on his YouTube channel, DeVito receives a gift from his old co-star while the two are promoting together Triplets and quickly realizes that the present is not exactly what it appears to be, which leads to serenity.

In his newsletter, Schwarzenegger explained the story behind his hilarious prank on DeVito (via KinoBlend):
This month I also teamed up with my friend Danny DeVito to promote our movie Triplets! Ivan Reitman, our director, whom you know from Twins, Kindergarten Cop and Ghostbusters, wanted to connect us with our new, third brother, Tracy Morgan, through Zoom. Of course, I saw this as the perfect opportunity to bring back a prank Danny had done on me on the set of Twins all those years ago. You may remember the story where Danny put marijuana in my cigar. Well, this time we turned the tables! We waited until the end of the shoot and gave Danny the gift. But unfortunately he still has the nose of a bloodhound and sniffed out the special ingredient. Here is the video of me giving him the cigar. I’m still waiting for Danny to send me the video later that night of trying.
Schwarzenegger is of course known for his love of cigars and is actually often seen smoking in behind-the-scenes clips from his various films. So, one can only imagine the shock the actor experienced when he lit the cigar he originally received from DeVito on the set of Twins and discovered that it contained something other than tobacco. Unfortunately, his attempt to turn the tables on DeVito didn’t exactly work because the it’s always sunny in Philadelphia It only took actor a whiff of Schwarzenegger’s present to realize that it wasn’t an ordinary cigar. But DeVito was not dismayed and accepted the gift anyway and promised, “fire it up” later.
Schwarzenegger and DeVito may be over thirty years away from the original Twins But it’s clear that the two stars still enjoy being together. This indeed bodes well for Triplets to be able to revive some of the comedy magic that made up the original Twins such a huge hit. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to bring in Morgan, an actor who can be explosively funny in almost any role. Having comedy film veteran Reitman back at the helm is also beneficial, even if the Ghost hunters The director himself is seven years away from his last directorial appearance. Twins 2 has no release date yet.
