Arnold Schwarzenegger at Last Stand premiere in London Arnold Schwarzenegger banned his The Last Stand co-star Johnny Knoxville, 41,  from carrying out pranks on set. Johnny is famed for his outrageous stunts and jokes from his time on MTV show Jackass, but the action legend told him he didn't want to experience his jokes while making the movie - which sees Arnold, 65, and Johnny appearing as Sheriff Ray Owens and arms collector Lewis Dinkum, who must protect their town from drug lord Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega). Talking to The Sun, Arnold said: "I forbade him. I told him the payback would be very painful. Johnny is used to Jackass films, where the more something goes wrong, and doesn't work, the better. I said to him our movie was different and he had to change his attitude. He was really good fun to work with - he brought some good comic relief to the movie."

    He's too stiff now. He used to play jokes on people (see Pumping Iron) only when he knows he can intimidate and he's the one doing the joking. Deosn't like it when people do it to him.

    Linda, you may not be able to stand pranksters but no one can stand prudish folk who take them selves way too seriously.

    Haha I've seen this interview it was a joke what he said. Arnold is Johnny's huge fan and he respects him. You guys need to lighten up. Arnold is cooler than cool and loves a good joke.
