The Moxie actor, 27, opened up about his time working at Los Angeles mall The Grove, during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel Live!
“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,” he said.
His father, Arnold Schwarzenegger, was the governor of California between 2003 and 2011.
“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, ‘OK, you’re security for Paris Hilton today,” he said. “She’s got her book tour, she’s coming to The Grove, she’s gonna be signing autographs.’ I’m like, ‘OK, I know Paris, but OK.”
The actor called it a “fun experience” and that she instantly recognised him when he turned up for the job.
“And so she gets out of the car [and] Paris has a security guard that used to work for my dad,” he said. “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.”
Patrick has previously opened up about his father’s feelings towards him pursuing acting.
“Both my parents are proud of me,” he said of Arnold and his mother Maria Shriver.
“It’s pretty surreal ’cause I remember growing up and going to set with him and it was like my favourite activity. I was so sad when he became governor and to go from Universal Studio’s lot to the Capitol. But it was really surreal to have him come to set have kind of the pages turned.”
