Mark Hamill once gave Arnold Schwarzenegger some terrible advice

The Force is weak in this one. It turns out Mark Hamill isn’t quite as intuitive as Luke Skywalker. If you were looking for some advice from your favorite Jedi, you might want to think again. It turns out he gave Arnold Schwarzenegger some pretty terrible advice. 

You probably know Mark Hamill best as wise Jedi Luke Skywalker from Star Wars, but that doesn't mean the actor himself has all of the answers. In fact, sometimes he gives terrible advice just like the rest of us.

Saturday on Twitter, a fan told Hamill they'd like a "What Would Mark Hamill Say?" T-shirt, implying they'd follow the sage advice of the actor in their daily lives. So Hamill recounted a story of the not-so-wise advice he passed on to up-and-coming actor Arnold Schwarzenegger back in the day. 

Of course, hindsight is 20/20, and now Schwarzenegger is perhaps best known for his accent. But it's nice to see that even the people we assume are wise sometimes get it wrong. Schwarzenegger responded to Hamill's post saying that the advice wasn't bad, but Schwarzenegger broke the mold. In any other circumstances, he claims the advice was solid.

Luckily both actors went on to have long careers and are currently starring in reboots of the franchises that made them stars. Schwarzenegger is filming the next Terminator film, while Hamill will return as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode IX.

So next time you think, "What Would Mark Hamill Say?" just remember that even Jedi sometimes make mistakes and using The Force isn't a guaranteed right answer.
