Star Wars legend Mark Hamill recently shared on Twitter that he once gave a young Arnold Schwarzenegger some career advice — and it wasn’t pretty.

“Arnold Schwarzenegger asked me for advice when he was just starting out,” he tweeted. “I told him to lose his accent for a wider range of roles & to change his last name since no one could pronounce it. He did the opposite & became one of the biggest stars EVER.”

Of course, Arnold responded: “Your advice was absolutely correct under any normal circumstances, and those were the rules back then. I just happen to be a rule-breaker.”

We guess the lesson is… always be you?!
