Chris Pratt jokes wife Katherine Schwarzenegger had a ‘laughing problem’ like the Joker. It’s actually a real condition (and no, she doesn’t have it)
Pratt joked Schwarzenegger was single because of her laugh
Chris Pratt recently joked that his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, may have been single because of her laugh, which worried him when they first started dating.
What’s going on?
- Pratt said on The Literally Podcast that he was concerned about his wife when they started dating because she had a laughing “issue.”
- Pratt said he was worried his wife had a “thing going on” because she laughed too much on their first dates. She wouldn’t stop giggling at everything he said.
- Pratt said: “The first time we started dating, the first few days she was laughing so much.”
- He said he thought he was “really killing it” with her. “Then she was really laughing.”
- Pratt said she worried his wife had “a thing” that made her “like the Joker” where she couldn’t stop laughing. “This is why she’s single,” he said.
- But apparently Pratt is just funny.
Joker condition is real
As I’ve written about before, there is a condition that makes people laugh without control. We actually saw it in the recent “Joker” film starring Joaquin Phoenix. Here’s what I wrote about it at the time:
That condition is real. It’s called the pseudobulbar affect, or emotional incontinence, which leads to uncontrollable episodes of crying, laughing or other emotional displays. It’s a secondary condition to a neurologic disorder or brain injury.
