“After that I did Terminator and James Cameron at a press conference said ‘what really makes this movie work is Arnie talks like machine.’ I don’t know if it was meant as a compliment…… All of sudden it became acceptable, and then it changed from acceptable to hip, then it ended up that I had the most-quoted lines in movies because I said things differently and sometimes wrong.”

Schwarzenegger, who was once told that he would be fit to play a Nazi, went on to earn a massive success that others can only dream of achieving. And thanks to Cameron’s vision, Arnold Schwarzenegger really hit it off after starring in The Terminator.

Schwarzenegger wasn’t born with a silver spoon. Growing up in a poverty-stricken family back in Austria, he had to make his way through persistent and dedicated efforts. During his formative years, his need to get out of poverty was one of his biggest motivations. The actor who became the youngest Mr. Universe was inspired by a veteran Mr. Universe to start working towards his dreams. He once retold the story,

“One day, I saw a magazine in a store window. The cover showed a muscle man in an ancient warrior costume, posing like this… It said, ‘Mr. Universe Now Starring In Hercules Movie.’ It turned out that Hercules was an English guy who’d won the Mr. Universe title in bodybuilding, and parlayed that into a movie career….  Bingo! I had my role model! If he could do it, I could do it!”

But the journey wasn’t easy for the Terminator star. Many told him to give up as his bulky body and robotic accent were never going to have him become the star he dreamt of. Despite the roadblocks, Schwarzenegger went on to build a massive empire of $450 Million.

His story is an inspiration to many, proving where there is a will there is always a way.
