Arnold Schwarzenegger was once the biggest name in body building, and later he was the biggest name in action films, and, later still, he was a big name in politics as the governor of California, but, despite the many careers and stress involved with all of them, there’s nary a worry line on Schwarzenegger’s brow.
The star, who is now 65, says the secret isn’t botox or or plastic surgery. Arnold claims he’s all natural.
“So this is the real thing,” he told USA Today, pointing to his face.
While Schwarzenegger’s face might retain some youth, his knees are another story. Known once as much for his physique as his acting prowess, the star of such films as The Terminator, Commando, Conan The Barbarian, and True Lies admits that his knees took a beating on the set of The Expendables 2, his new film starring Sylvester Stallone and just about every big action star from Bruce Willis to Jean Claude van Damme.
“There were scenes where I had to drop down to my knees over and over again,” he said. “When you get up each time you really feel it in your knees.”
Don’t take the Governator the wrong way though; he loved being back in the action movie game after serving as governor from 2003 to 2011.
“For me it was really interesting because one day you are making policy and you’re stimulated in how you fix the budget problem of the state and about the maze of educational issues and all those things,” Arnold Schwarzenegger told IBN Live. “Then the next day you are on the set having a shoot out from with Sly and all those guys.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger can be seen in theaters now in The Expendables 2 but will be back on the big screen again soon in a starring role in The Last Stand, a film about a border town sheriff.
