Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Terminator.
At 65, Arnold Schwarzenegger is older and wiser, and sharing some of the lessons he's learned throughout his life in the January "Meaning of Life" issue of Esquire magazine.
One lesson: stick to the job you know. He recalls criticizing the writing and one of the most iconic phrases in "The Terminator," saying: “I didn’t get it at first. 'I'll be back.' What the f-- is 'I'll'? 'I will be back' sounded much stronger in my mind. So I argued with (writer/director) Jim Cameron. And he said, 'Look, Arnold, I don’t tell you how to act. Please don’t tell me how to write.'"
The former governator concedes that Cameron knew what he was doing.
"After I saw it in the movie, I was so thankful to Cameron. That was a good lesson to learn. If someone is a good writer, stick to the script."
Schwarzenegger also talks about how sex has changed over the years. "When you get older, sex may change a bit," he told the magazine. "When you’re 65, it's not exactly the same as when you were 25. But that doesn’t mean it's over. It's never over."
