Why we love young Arnold Schwarzenegger..
Arnie. Ultimate tough guy from the best action movies of our generation. Savvy Hollywood operator who became California’s ‘Governator’. But Big Boys Club’s favourite incarnation was before the PR polish and political correctness. Young Arnold Schwarzenegger was cocky and classic. Case in point – this little nugget from the early days of his TV career.
Let a young Arnold Schwarzenegger introduce you to Brazil’s Carnivale!
And now he’s back!
After Terminator 3 sank without a trace the producers convinced 67 year old Arnie to suit up once more for Terminator Genisys. Cutting edge technology and old footage which looks to be from 1977’s Pumping Iron allowed them to splice in young Arnold Schwarzenegger as a ‘synthespian’ (digital actor) for a ‘Good Arnie’ vs. ‘Evil Arnie’ fight to the death. Awesome! See how they did it here
Young Arnold Schwarzenegger talks bodybuilding in ‘Pumping Iron’
“It’s as satisfying to me as, uh, coming is, you know? As, ah, having sex with a woman and coming. And so can you believe how much I am in heaven? I am like, uh, getting the feeling of coming in a gym, I’m getting the feeling of coming at home, I’m getting the feeling of coming backstage when I pump up, when I pose in front of 5,000 people, I get the same feeling, so I am coming day and night. I mean, it’s terrific. Right? So you know, I am in heaven.”
