"I never, ever thought that my daughter [would] marry an actor," the 73-year-old said during a Zoom conference with his co-stars from the 1990 film Kindergarten Cop. The event was hosted by Yahoo Entertainment on Monday.

As Schwarzenegger reminisced about raising his children on film sets, he said he always thought his oldest daughter (31) "would be sick and tired of [her father] dragging her to the sets" and having to see him "blowing up buildings and killing people."

Schwarzenegger said all of his other kids loved it, "but Katherine, she was crying always the first few movies."
