Arnold Schwarzenegger confronted his Fear of Death
Despite having a successful career as an actor, bodybuilder, and politician the fitness icon is still shadowed by the fear of death. In an interview, while promoting his movie Terminator: Dark Fate, back in 2019 the living legend confessed to his fans that rather than being afraid of death he is more pissed off about it.
“I’m not afraid of death, I’m just pissed off about it. Especially, I think, when you have a life like we have, and then one day it’s over. I mean, that really pisses me off.”

The former Governor of California continued and elaborated his imagination on the after-life and made it clear how he will miss his present life after his death.
“Hopefully, there is a life after this and we all know it’s going to be different. I hope there’s life after this, but it’s not gonna be like this. I’m not gonna sit, after we’re dead, we’re not gonna sit here like this and do interviews and have a great time and have laughs. Maybe there will be angels sitting around, maybe there will be God there smacking us every time we say a four-letter word or something like that. I mean, I don’t know what it is, but it’s upsetting and I cannot stand it. I’m so angry about it.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s wish for his Death
The Austrian Oak usually interacts with his fans through his weekly newsletter and in one such newsletter of 2021, he shared his desire for his death. Despite having fear and negative thoughts regarding death the bodybuilding legend didn’t burden his fans with the same fear and continued to inspire them with his words.
” I have such a great time here that I hate the idea of death. I don’t want you to feel pissed off on my behalf or even sad when that day comes. I want you to be inspired. I want all of you to pick up wherever I leave off…”
Death being an epitome of equality that comes to all inevitably has surely rooted his fears in the legendary bodybuilder. The instance also validates the fact that it is not necessary for the physically strong to be equivalently strong mentally and emotionally. Death will surely come to all of us someday but we can not let its fear haunt us in the present and Schwarzenegger too shared the same through his remarks.
