I think most people don't get how smart Arnold is, he's so well informed too

Notice how Schwarzenegger talks so little about himself and praises all of his colleagues? A class act.
fun fact: OJ Simpson was considered for the role of the Terminator but James Cameron didn’t think he’d be believable as a killer

The American Dream, right here. An Austrian who was told he’d never make it big because of his foreign accent, becomes the biggest action star of all time, and also a governor of California.

Chigurh 4:
I think Terminator 2 is one of the best action movies of all time.
Commando!! “Remember when I said I would kill you last?”—“I lied”.... that’s still one of the best ever!

I think he's the only person who doesn't have anything negative to say about Batman and Robin
On Total Recall: they tried to copy it, someone tried to do a remake of it, how stupid is that?
Mr Nobody
Mr Nobody:

As much as I enjoy Arnold's actions films, I really appreciate his comedies as well.
Derek Ball
Derek Ball:
I love how proud he is of literally the cheesiest lines of all movie history.
Video: censors bad language
Also video: shows movie clip of someone being shot in the head/stabbed
Terminator 2 is one of those rare "Perfect" films. The story, the acting, the music, everything about it is just "wow".
Adam David's Oddities
Adam David's Oddities:
Sometimes when alone I randomly scream, "GET TO THE CHOPPA!" with his accent because I'm weird like that.
Glorious Tirkey
Glorious Tirkey:
He attacc
He protecc
But most importantly,

He will be bacc
I think his gravestone should read
"I'll be back"
Morten Hansen
Morten Hansen:
Terminator: Dark Fate, pfff! But No "Commando"? No "Running Man"? :O
dji zzah
dji zzah:
the original terminator probably one of the best sci fi movies ive seen, and predator is right up there as well
Camanda Panda
Camanda Panda:
Most people: Endgame is the most ambitious crossover ever.
Me, an intellectual: Twins

Viceregal Dust 31:
Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator is a casting you simply cannot replace.
When my kid falls down and I don't freak out, imma tell my wife "he'll live". And then end up being taken to couples therapy probably.
Titan X
Titan X:
Arnold is 'The Terminator' I cant see any other actor to play that part any better.
Mr Knez
Mr Knez:
“Remember when I promised to kill you last? I lied.” hahahahahah This is the funniest line in movie history.
“Never listen to the naysayers”- Arnold Schwarzenegger

Justin Simonelli:
“If we wouldn’t have Schwarzenegger we would have to build one.”

Ser Art Dayne
Ser Art Dayne:
“Did you ever kill anybody?”

“Yeah but they were all bad”.

Lol my favorite line in True Lies
Cheese Crumpets
Cheese Crumpets:
"I'm not afraid to fail."

We should all remember that line before we try to pursue anything in life.
Its amazing how positive this man is about everything.
"Milk is for babys, when ya grow up ya drink Beer!" Sound advice!
David Murphy
David Murphy:
The greatest action star of all time. Terminator, Commando, Predator, three films that I loved as a kid and still love as much today. There'll never be another like him.
David Polaczek
David Polaczek:
isn't it weird how everyone in "Holly-wood" had to play roles were genders were switched
Everytime I'm in the US and someone finds out I'm Austrian, they make me say "I'll be back". Then they are disappointed, because I don't sound like you. Thanks Arnold.
The Terminator's voice would've been synthetic, so Arnold's accent worked in his favor.
Love Arnold. He's real down to earth and doesn't take himself to seriously.
James Ennis
James Ennis:
The way Arnie talks about his co stars an directors it’s like he is not a big star. He is so respectful. Legend
Dan Hodson
Dan Hodson:
I could literally finish watching True Lies and think yeah ok let’s watch that again! Amazing film!
Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray:
Actually Arnie in "Conan" speaks clearer english (for a non-English native speaker) than either Clint Eastwood or John Wayne.
Arnold has got to be faking the accent. No way he still has that strong of an accent after this long
"Someone tried to do a remake of it. How stupid is that? I mean, Jesus." Haha, classic.
Paul B.
Paul B.:
Sad to think one day I’ll live in a world without this man
Ham War

The one actor whose movies I can watch over and over.... brilliant!!!!
1984: I'll be Back!
2020: Aww! My Back!
Tekkerz Mark
Tekkerz Mark:
I could listen to him talk about his career/passions for hours
Chuck Zhang
Chuck Zhang:
Great interview overall, but in predator he mentions the “stick around” line but not “get to the choppa!”
"I am not afraid of failure."

A very rare condition.
Bruce Wayne
Bruce Wayne:
To Arnold's credit "I will" does sound more machine-like than "I'll" but the casual delivery of it is what made it memorable.
James Harris
James Harris:
"Anyone else think they can move to Austria, learn the language, become famous for working out, become a movie star, marry into their royalty, then hold public office?"

Joseph Van Horn:
LMAO I love how Arnold had never met a child before filming “Kindergarten Cop.” He’s like, did you KNOW they’re like little people??
Me; "I think i'm gonna click off early."

Arnold; "Stick around."
Vijay Krishnan
Vijay Krishnan:
"I'll be back" and "Get to the choppa" easily the two best iconic statements ever in the history of Hollywood. Thank you Arnold for making my teenage years so cool :)
Red Sonja, Commando, The Running Man <3, Red Heat <3, Last Action Hero, End of Days. Shame lot of time is wasted on others not mentioning these.

Mr. Schwarzenegger is one of most iconic personality's in my life! Thank You mister for all the movies, especially for True Lies, Total Recall and of course for Terminator 2
I feel really bad about Hollywood in nowdays, as all of the best movies is done already.
Jingle all the way is so good, he’s comedic performance is proper underrated.
Why is his left eyelid permanently glued to his eyebrow? Is it just me? Or...?

Rich J
Rich J:
Arnold is right about Total Recall.
His version: CLASSIC!
He is *THE* action hero of the ages.
"..we treated it (Terminator) as a B movie..."
Still one of the most epic and impactful sci-fi movies of all time.
The Truth
The Truth:
Plot twist: Terminator breaks down his most iconic characters
Also Red Heat and The Running Man. 😎 Back when action movies used real FX and CG' to enhance realism, and when they were made for adults - a golden age.

L Proof:
Last Action Hero never gets any love, but to me it was one of the most creative premises to an action film, and the entertainment was of the charts. I wish more people recognized it’s brilliance.
Yeah, you missed Last Action Hero! I love that movie!
Guvyyg Vuhh
Guvyyg Vuhh:
you can see the passion in his voice
A Living Legend!
This is proof that the top of the top are always nice, he's so intelligent and he's the governor of California and the terminator

UBI fan25:
“Look I don’t correct your acting so don’t correct my writing” 😂😂😂
Looking at his left eye, I came to the conclusion that he really is the Terminator.

I would really love to know about "Junior", that was a really interesting pick.
If you didn't know his son in "jingle all the way" went on to be Anakin skywalker

He's humble, smart and very funny. I'm gonna watch terminator now
Arnold got so many skins in the 70's and 80's hes plowed enough women for 100 dudes.

Wish Ridley scott would have done I am Legend with the original idea of having Arnold.
