Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of the most celebrated actors from the 90s and has starred in some of the most influential movies in Hollywood history. Under the leadership of James Cameron, Schwarzenegger has starred in some genre-defining cinemas, including The Terminator and its sequel.

But apart from The Terminator franchise, the duo once collaborated for an action comedy in the 90s, alongside Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis. But almost 30 years after the release of True Lies, Jamie Lee Curtis shared a heart-whelming gesture, which was performed by the Terminator actor.

Arnold Schwarzenegger acknowledged Jamie Lee Curtis by calling her the female lead of True Lies 

The True Lies stars reunited after almost 30 years at the Her Hand and Footprint Ceremony, where Arnold Schwarzenegger shared his praise and respect for his costar, Jamie Lee Curtis. And apart from commending the actress, The Terminator actor also used the opportunity to address the issue of Jamie Lee Curtis being termed as the supporting actress in True Lies, as he clarifies that the actress wasn’t a supporting actress but the female lead of the movie. He stated,

“When you go online, and you check out Jamie Lee Curtis, you can see all the wonderful things they’re saying about her. But there’s always one thing that pisses me off, and that is when they say that she is a supporting actress in the movie True Lies. Because she wasn’t supporting, she was the female lead. She was the star. She was starring with me.”

The Halloween actress went on to acknowledge Arnold Schwarzenegger’s gesture as she jokingly said, “dude why aren’t we doing another movie?”. But it appears that before addressing the fans, the actor once stood for her co-star against the filmmakers, way back in the 90s.
