Patrick Schwarzenegger once worked as Paris Hilton’s security guard for a day.
The 27-year-old actor — who is the son of Hollywood icon Arnold Schwarzenegger — has revealed he got his first job when he was a teenager at the Los Angeles mall The Grove, where he filled in for various roles, including serving as a security guard for socialite and businesswoman Paris.
Speaking during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, He said: “I did everything there: valet, security, property walks, lease management tours. I have this really funny story of one time … I was a security guard for the week. Meanwhile, I have my own security guards for me because my dad was governor.
“So I’m like a 15-year-old kid with an earpiece and a suit jacket and I show up for work, and they’re like, ‘Okay, you’re security for Paris Hilton today. She’s got her book tour, she’s coming to The Grove, she’s gonna be signing autographs.’ I’m like, ‘Okay, I know Paris, but okay.’ ”
Patrick, who's currently starring in the Amy Poheler-directed Netflix comedy, Moxie, went on to explain Paris noticed him as soon as she got out of her car, and said the pair had a “fun” day together.
He added: “And so she gets out of the car [and] Paris has a security guard that used to work for my dad. I show up and I greet Paris and she’s like, ‘Patrick? Schwarzenegger? What are you doing?’ And I’m like, ‘I’m your security guard for the day!’ And that was it. It was a fun experience.”
Meanwhile, in a recent interview with the Metro newspaper's 'Sixty Seconds' column, Patrick said he believes his famous father is still learning "what it really means to be a man".
Arnold is known for starring in action movies and was named Mr. Olympia seven times during his career as a bodybuilder, but Patrick insists his 73-year-old father has evolved as a man over the decades as masculinity has "shifted" over time.
He said: "I think the idea of what a man is has totally shifted in the past few years but also in the last 10, 50, 100 years.
"The way my dad grew up in the environment of Austria and Germany right after World War II, there were a lot of broken men. So as to the ideal of what a man was, there wasn't really much there.
"I think that kind of threw up, coming to America. And then marrying my mum and having our family, he's continuing to find what it really means to be a man."
