Guy Fieri Recalls Being Nervous Cooking For Al Pacino, Sylvester Stallone, & Arnold Schwarzenegger: “I’ve Seen Every Movie”

Guy Fieri

We all know Guy Fieri as one of the most well-known and well-respected chefs in the game.

I mean hell, you don’t get dubbed the “Mayor of Flavortown” for no reason.

However, even a guy like Fieri gets a little star struck every now and then.

According to US Weekly, Fieri got the chance to cook for Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, AND Al Pacino.

The 54-year-old chef recalled the wild scene:

“I’m there and I’m cooking… Sly says, ‘Hang on.’ I’m like, ‘Who is coming through this door?’

They’re building this up so big… in walks Al Pacino.

I am a humongous ‘Godfather’ fan, I am a humongous ‘Scarface’ fan. I mean, Al Pacino! ‘Dog Day Afternoon,’ you name it. I’ve seen every movie.

Al takes a few bites and I am just, I don’t know what to do. I said, ‘Uh, Al, how is it?’ And he looks up and he goes, ‘Woo!’”

Fieri also mentioned how nice and genuine of a person Pacino was, and how much that meant to him:

“Growing up, watching this guy and then seeing what a nice, gentle, cool dude he was. And when somebody likes what you make, it’s pretty special.”

The chef also mentioned how he got connected with Stallone in the first place. He said that he met the actor in Beverly Hills a year before he was invited to cook at the party.

Stallone wanted him to attend as a guest, but he insisted on cooking:

“Sylvester says, ‘Bring it.’ He says he’s gonna invite a few friends though, if that’s OK. I’m like, ‘It’s his house! I’m there. And I’m cooking.’”

Man, could you imagine being in a room with that many legends? Stallone, Schwarzenegger, AND Pacino?

Even if I was a star chef, I’d be shaking trying to make sure the food is perfect.

There’s also video footage of the interaction as well:
