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.”
