Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed that his son-in-law, Chris Pratt is great at chess.
The chess enthusiast told ExtraTV, "In all fairness, I am a mediocre chess player … It is just that Chris Pratt has just begun playing chess, but he's very, very focused."
"He's very, very smart, and he's a quick, quick learner. I think he's extraordinary, the actor continued. "I was in the middle of a game, almost losing the game, so I had to stay focused. I had to visualise myself as the winner. I said, 'Please, can you leave right now? I'm about to lose!'"
Previously, Pratt revealed that he could not beat his father-in-law at chess.
Speaking on Late Night with Seth Meyers, he said: "It is pretty surreal! I've gotten to obviously know the regular guy and all of that, he's a great dad, a great grandad, and a good father-in-law and he's got a wealth of experience.
"It's been very nice, he's a great dude. We play chess a lot. I've never beaten him, he's very, very good."
