Arnold Schwarzenegger and Edward Norton have been friends for years, bonding over an insult at a wedding. The pair were guests on Thursday's Jimmy Kimmel Live! (home edition) where they discussed their Frontline Responders Fund, an initiative to bring protective equipment to front-line responders during the coronavirus pandemic. The fund has raised more than $7.3 million. 

Before the discussion turned serious about the situation and their fund, Norton told the story about when the actors first met, which was at a wedding in the '90s, while Norton was preparing for American History X

"Arnold said, 'You look good, You look trim,' and I said, 'I am actually trying to put on some size, so maybe you could give me some advice.' And he asked me to breakdown my workout," Norton said. "So I was pretty proud, I was slinging a lot of steel back then. I told him my whole workout and he goes, 'That's pretty good. And you're doing two a day?' And I say, 'No, just once a day' and he goes 'Well, that's pretty pussy, Ed.'" 

All three got a good laugh out of the story.
