Arnold Schwarzenegger was born July 30, 1947 in the village of Tal near the capital of Styria, the city of Graz. His parents were Gustav Schwarzenegger (1907–1972) and Aurelia Schwarzenegger, nee Yadrni (1922–1998). They were married on October 20, 1945, Gustav was 38 years old, Aurelia was 23. Meinhard Schwarzenegger’s older brother was born on July 17, 1946. The family was of the Catholic faith and attended church every Sunday. Arnold was baptized as Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger.
After the Anschluss of Austria in 1938, Gustav Schwarzenegger joined the NSDAP and the SA. During the war, he served in Feldzhandarmeria, where he received the rank of Hauptfeldwebel (senior sergeant). After the war, Gustav was allowed to work as the chief of the local police, as there was no evidence that he committed war crimes. The family lived in poverty; Schwarzenegger calls the purchase of a refrigerator one of the most vivid memories of youth. Arnold had a difficult relationship with his family, since for Austro-German parents it was more important to obey the generally accepted rules than the personality of the child. In protest, young Arnold Schwarzenegger has always wanted to become rich and famous.
Under the influence of his father, Arnold began playing football, but at the age of 14 he preferred a career as a bodybuilder. He was inspired by well-known bodybuilders like Reg Park, Steve Reeves, and swimmer Johnny Weissmuller, whom he often saw in the movies. In 2001, Schwarzenegger told about those years: “My father wanted me to become a police officer, like him. Mom offered to go into the trade. ”
He worked daily at the Liebenauer gym in Graz; although the club did not work on Saturdays and Sundays, Arnold still worked on weekends, climbing through a window on a stepladder.
On May 20, 1971, Arnold’s brother, Meinhard, died in a car accident while driving while drunk. Arnold did not appear at the Meinhard funeral. The brother was married to Eric Knapp and left the three-year-old son Patrick. Arnold later paid for Patrick’s education and helped him with emigration to the United States. A year later, Arnold’s father died of a stroke. Schwarzenegger was not at his funeral
In 1965, at the age of 18, Arnold was drafted into the Austrian army for 1 year, where he received military specialty as a driver of the M47 Patton II tank. The future governor of California received this position, despite the fact that in the Austrian army it was usually assigned to persons aged 21 years and older. Only in the army for the first time Arnold began to eat meat every day.
He took part in the “Mr. Europe” junior competition and won it; for the sake of competition, he went to “AWOL”, after which he was sent to a military prison for two months (according to other sources, to a guardhouse for two weeks). Schwarzenegger himself writes in his book “Educating a Bodybuilder” that he sat in a punishment cell for one week, after which he was given a two-day leave, as the officers felt that his victory brought some prestige to the army. Contrary to popular belief, this performance was not a debut; The debut took place two years earlier in a less well-known contest in Graz, where Arnold took second place.
As the future governor of California later said, he was able to find a time and place for training even during tactical exercises, when he lived in field conditions for several weeks. He equipped the bar from scrap materials and kept it in the tank.
|I made great progress at the initial stage of my training, when I served in the Austrian army and had a lot of things to do. When we took part in maneuvers along the Czechoslovak border for six weeks, I had to drive a tank for fifteen hours a day, pump fuel with a hand pump, “fight” with huge fuel barrels and do repairs. We slept in the trenches or under the tanks and had to get up at six in the morning. However, my friend and I got up at five, climbed into the tank tools compartment in which we kept our rods, and practiced for an hour before the general climb. After the end of the daily part of the exercises, we trained for another hour. I can not imagine more difficult conditions for training and therefore I assert that finding time and energy for training is a matter of motivation and interest.|
However, as he later admitted, he was not an ideal soldier, and once he drowned his tank.
Describing his service in the army, Arnold in his autobiography tells how impatiently he waited for the officers to order physical training, and the main result of the service calls for a significant build-up of muscle mass and strength.
Moving to Munich
After the army in 1966 he moved to Munich, where he worked in a fitness club. During this period, for some time he had to sleep on the floor in the gym, until he managed to rent an apartment. As Arnold himself mentions in his autobiography, at this time he behaved extremely aggressively, engaging in fights almost every day and collecting fines for breaking traffic rules (he writes: “I was like a bull who was feeding his meat”).
Soon he began to manage the gym himself, but at the same time he still had a lot of debt.
In 1966, Arnold took second place in the Mr. Universe contest in London, losing to American Shet Yorton. Such a result was a surprise to himself; Arnold originally counted no more than sixth to seventh place. In 1967, he won the title.
Moving to the USA
In September 1968, Arnold arrives in America at the age of 21. By his own admission, at that time he spoke poor English and spoke with a strong accent, which made him difficult. According to Arnold, moving to the United States has been his dream since he was 10 years old. In the late 1960s – early 1970s, he was in the country illegally, violating the conditions of his visa.
He begins training at Gold’s Gym in Santa Monica, California, under the patronage of Joe Vader. In 1970, at the age of 23, he won his first title, Mr. Olympia, in New York.
In 1983 he received US citizenship, retaining the citizenship of Austria.
|For me, freedom of choice meant coming here to America. After all, I came from a country where the state regulated the economy, from a country where 18-year-olds are already talking about retirement, but I, I wanted more. I wanted to be the best, but such individualism is incompatible with [European] socialism, so I decided that I needed to go to America. I had no money, but I had the freedom to earn it. Having relied on my pumped muscles, I managed to build a big business and a career in the cinema.|
Arnold Schwarzenegger began his bodybuilding career at the age of 15. The main problem of the initial stage of his sports career, he calls the lack of experience and knowledge of such a relatively new then sport, like bodybuilding. Young Schwarzenegger considered Rega Park his ideal.
However, he is making impressive progress; in his book “The New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding,” Arnold writes that his hands then increased by half an inch (1.27 cm) in two months of training, and the total muscle mass by twenty pounds (9.071 kg) in a year. To get his first title, “Mr. Olympia” Schwarzenegger took only five years. At the same time, Schwarzenegger does not deny that he used anabolic steroids at that time, but later refused to take them after learning about the harm to health.
In 1967, Arnold became the youngest in the history of “Mr. Universe”. At that time, Schwarzenegger’s height was 188 cm, chest volume – 144 cm, biceps – 52 cm, hips – 68.5 cm, lower legs – 47 cm, necks – 46 cm. By 1968, winning all European championships of bodybuilders, Arnold Schwarzenegger decided to continue his career as a bodybuilder in the United States.
His main task as a bodybuilder after moving to the United States, he calls the goal “to trim the muscle mass brought from Europe, to give it the desired shape.” In his “New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding,” Arnold writes: “I was a capable student. I approached the judges and asked what, in their opinion, I did wrong. ” He learned a lot from his “peers”, including his idol Olympic champion and 4-time world weightlifting champion Yuri Vlasov after a personal acquaintance. This acquaintance took place during the World Weightlifting Championships in Vienna in 1961, where a young thin boy Arnold Schwarzenegger was introduced to Yuri Vlasov.
Tense work brought numerous victories; a special place in his career is occupied by the victory in the competition “Mr. Olympia” in 1980; she was an unexpected comeback after a five year break. During the absence of Schwarzenegger due to the growing popularity of bodybuilding competition in competitions has increased significantly.
After 1980, Schwarzenegger finally ended his sports career. However, he made a significant contribution to the popularization of bodybuilding, spreading his vast experience in books and in bodybuilding magazines.
In 1988 he organized his own competition “Arnold Classic”.
Among his idols, Schwarzenegger, among others, calls Yuri Vlasov (they met 2 times – in 1960 in Vienna and 1988 in Moscow) together with Leonid Zhabotinsky and Vasily Alekseev.
Arnold Schwarzenegger from 1969 began to act in films, as did many of his idols, such as Reg Park and Steve Reeves. His problem was initially too much muscle mass, which looked unnatural for the cinema, and a strong German accent, due to which it was necessary to avoid long complex dialogues. For a number of films Arnold had to significantly lose weight. He takes acting lessons and tries to get rid of the accent. The director of Predator, John McTirnan, notes: “This guy is capable: I was told that it would take at least twenty duplicates to work with him, but they would take three or four. He learns fast. ”
The first acting work of Schwarzenegger in cinema was the film “Hercules in New York” (1970). It was the only film in which Arnold was credited in the credits not under his own last name, but under the pseudonym Arnold Strong (the producer decided that the name Schwarzenegger sounded bad in English). Subsequently, this film Schwarzenegger called his most unloved work in the cinema.
The first films with the participation of Arnold Schwarzenegger were taken by the public with restraint; success came after “Conan the Barbarian” (1982). For quite a long time, Arnold’s fees, however, remain relatively small, but after such films as “Recall All” (1990) and “Terminator-2” (1991) significantly increase (the fee for the second of these films was $ 20 million, and for Terminator-3 (2003) – $ 30 million, which was a record in the film industry).
The former bodybuilder is awarded a number of prestigious awards. At the same time, the actor becomes the winner of the anti-award “Golden Raspberry” in 8 nominations.
Critics say that Iron Arnie’s acting skills leave much to be desired, and he avoids long, complex dialogues; Comedian Robin Williams notes that “fewer words than Arnold Schwarzenegger, said only the Scottish Collie Lassie.”
In an effort to get away from the image of reinforced concrete killer, who for the entire film utters five or six phrases, Arnold begins to act in comedy films. For some of them, including the very first, “Twins” (1988), he does not ask for any fee at all, confining himself to a percentage of sales.
The comedy “The Last Movie Hero” becomes Arnold’s parody of himself and his image of the “terminator”.
Schwarzenegger’s subsequent films, End of the World, The Sixth Day and Damages, were greeted by critics and viewers with some restraint. In 2003, the long-awaited sequel “Terminator-3: Rise of the Machines” was released, after which the 56-year-old Arnold leaves the film industry. In the same year, he won the election for the governor of California, which makes it impossible to participate in any shootings (not counting the film “Around the World in 80 Days” and released in 2010 by Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables). For example, in the movie “Terminator: May the Savior Come”, released on screens in 2009, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s digital image is used. He appears at the age in which he starred in the first “Terminator”.
The first film with the participation of Arnold after his return to the cinema was the action movie “The Expendables 2”. He will also voice the main character in the animated series “The Governor”. In 2013 (February 21 in Russia), the movie “The Return of a Hero” was released, in which Arnold played the main role.
In 2013, the film “Escape Plan” was released, in which another famous actor, Sylvester Stallone, played one of the main roles together with Schwarzenegger. In October 2012, Schwarzenegger began shooting in the action movie “Sabotage”, where he plays a policeman, and he will again have to fight against drug trafficking. The film premiered in the United States on March 28, 2014. In August 2013, Arnold took part in the shooting of the action movie “Expendables 3”, where many famous actors played, such as Sylvester Stallone, Jason Staten, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Antonio Banderas, Dolph Lundgren and others. In September of the same year, Schwarzenegger starred in the film “Maggie”, in which he played the role of the farmer. In April 2014, Schwarzenegger began shooting the fantastic action movie “Terminator: Genesis”, he again played the famous role of the Terminator T-800. The director of the picture was Alan Taylor. The premiere of the film took place in July 2015.
By age 30, Arnold Schwarzenegger became a millionaire. His condition multiplied thanks to successful investments. He opened a mailing business, founded Pumping Bricks, a construction company, and went into real estate. The core of his financial empire is Oak Productions, through which deductions from film studios and the percentage of sales of comics and video games pass. As of 2007, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s assets are estimated at $ 900 million.
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s financial adviser for a long time has been Paul Wachter.
In terms of American politics, Schwarzenegger is usually considered a “centrist.” Despite her marriage to Maria Shriver, a representative of the influential Democratic Kennedy clan, Schwarzenegger himself is a staunch Republican. His views are contrasted with the political convictions of most show businessmen, who usually support the Democratic Party. In the 2008 presidential election, Schwarzenegger supported Republican candidate John McCain, saying that “his views are close to mine, including in the field of the environment.”
Although a number of negative statements by Schwarzenegger to the Democrats are known, on several issues he is more liberal than most of his fellow party members. Schwarzenegger supports Republicans on same-sex marriage issues and restricting illegal immigration, but is close to Democrats on banning abortions and restricting the rights to freely sell weapons. Supports the legalization of marijuana – but only for medical purposes, the last step as governor was the signing of a decree decriminalizing the storage of marijuana weighing up to one ounce (29 grams); criminal liability was replaced by a $ 100 fine. However, an attempt to legalize marijuana failed; in 2010, 57% of voters voted against the referendum.
A consistent supporter of the Kyoto Protocol, a supporter of research in the field of stem cells.
In 2003, Arnold Schwarzenegger was elected to the post of governor of California from the Republican Party. He became the 38th governor of this state and the first governor of the state, born outside the United States, since the Irishman John Downey, elected in 1862. The American media accompanied the campaign with the headings “Governator” (a hybrid of the “terminator” and “governor” – “governor”), “Running Man” and “Terminator-4: Candidate’s Rise” (allusion to the name of the movie “Terminator-3: Rise of the Machines ”). The election of a new governor was accompanied by the second in US history recall (eng. Recall) of the current head of state, Gray Davis, who brought the state into a state of financial and energy crisis; this gave the press an excuse for the “Total Recall” headlines (an allusion to the famous Schwarzenegger film,
In his activities, he soon faced a powerful opposition that launched a campaign of compromising against him, and experienced a significant drop in the rating. Despite this, in 2006 he was re-elected for a second term. Powers expired in 2011, according to the California Constitution, he had no right to run for a third term.
He started a campaign to reduce costs in the state, and within the framework of this campaign he refused the governor’s salary of 175 thousand dollars a year.
After his re-election, he finally moves to the political center, between Republicans and Democrats; he supports the signing of the Kyoto Protocol, a negative attitude to the war in Iraq, entered into a series of conflicts with US President George W. Bush.
According to the US Constitution, he has no right to run for the presidency, since he was born outside the United States. Currently he sees the prospect of his presidency (by adopting an appropriate amendment to the Constitution) unrealistic:
I support the people who advocate this amendment. But its adoption is the hardest business that will require many years. I just will not live to this.
In April 2005, Schwarzenegger signed the SB 424 law proclaiming the week, which includes on April 24 of each year, the week of commemoration of the victims of the Armenian Genocide.
At the end of 2007, he was criticized for the “Amendment SB 777”, which lists the types of discrimination prohibited in public schools in accordance with the definitive part of the law on hate crimes. The main salvo of criticism was directed against the inclusion of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people on this list.
As a Republican, Arnold Schwarzenegger at the beginning of his political career was categorically opposed to gay marriage. However, during the public debate and a series of lawsuits in California, he changed his position and called for the resumption of their registration. He refused to be a defendant in the Perry v. Schwarzenegger federal lawsuit, which questions the constitutionality of the same-sex marriage ban. Schwarzenegger referred to the fact that he swore to defend the US Constitution, and the prohibition of same-sex marriage, in his opinion, contradicts it. The trial played an important role in the further legalization of same-sex marriage throughout the United States.
Despite Schwarzenegger’s titanic efforts to cut state spending, he did not manage to overcome the acute budget deficit. Attempts by the governor to replenish the treasury by raising several indirect taxes failed in a referendum, and cuts in civil servants, policemen, nurses and teachers caused strong resistance from trade unions. The hard position of Schwarzenegger on the issue of cost reduction has repeatedly led to budget crises, when the governor and the state legislature for several months could not agree on a budget. In 2010, the budget instead of June was adopted only in October.
The state of California has become one of the most seriously affected by the global crisis.
In March 2017 it became known that the former governor of California was thinking about returning to the political arena, he began to consider his possible participation in the elections to the Senate of the US Congress, which are scheduled for 2018. The actor does not agree with the decisions of the current president regarding political reforms, climate change issues and immigration issues. Becoming a legislator, Arnold will be able to confront the president at a qualitatively new level.
Arnold’s personal life with the beginning of a career in bodybuilding became extremely turbulent and caused the appearance of a number of legends: “They say, for example, how he once approached an unfamiliar girl on a Californian beach and made her an intimate offer. One of his friends, hastily intervening, began to explain to the girl: “My friend recently in the USA and does not know our customs.” To which she replied: “No, no, do not stop him!” “. In an interview with the magazine “Penthouse” says that one woman offered to smear it in chocolate and lick. Among other legends is the case when, in the distribution of autographs, the fan undressed and asked: “Do you want to pump this body?”.
In 1969, Schwarzenegger met Barbara Outland Baker, an English teacher. As Arnold wrote in his autobiography, before meeting her, he “perceived sex only as another function of the body,” but after the appearance of Barbara’s friends joked: “Arnold fell in love.”\
Their relationship ends in 1974. According to her own recollections, “she was a sensible woman who wanted a solid, ordinary life. I was not a sensible man, and I hated the idea of ordinary life. ” Barbara described Arnold as “funny, charismatic, adventurous and athletic,” but explained the gap by the fact that he became “unbearable – the world revolves around him.” Subsequently she wrote the book “In the Shadow of Austrian Oak”, which Arnold not only did not interfere with writing, but even gave her a three-hour interview.
Marriage with Maria Shriver
In 1975, at the Venice Beach, Schwarzenegger met Sue Morey, a hairdresser, and from August 1977 he also began meeting with TV journalist Maria Shriver, the niece of President John F. Kennedy. In August 1978, Moray gave him an ultimatum, but Schwarzenegger chose Shriver. In an interview with Penthouse magazine, Arnold said that Maria has always been his hottest fan, who has studied bodybuilding in a proper way and screamed his name the loudest in the hall.
According to Wendy Ley in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Informal Biography, there was a connection between him and Brigitte Nielsen, who co-starred in the film Red Sonja. At this time, Schwarzenegger was already engaged to Maria Shriver, so the relationship did not work out. Subsequently, Nielsen married Sylvester Stallone.
On April 26, 1986, Schwarzenegger and Shriver got married. The wedding took place in Hayanis, Massachusetts, in the Roman Catholic Church of St. Francis Xavier. Subsequently, the couple had four children:
- Catherine Younis Schwarzenegger, born December 13, 1989 in Los Angeles, California;
- Christina Maria Aurelius Schwarzenegger, born July 23, 1991;
- Patrick Schwarzenegger, born September 18, 1993 ibid;
- Christopher Sargent Shriver Schwarzenegger, born September 27, 1997 ibid.
For a long time, the Schwarzenegger family lived in Brentwood, in a house of about a thousand square meters. Schwarzenegger maintained strict discipline, raising children at six in the morning and forcing them to engage in charging and hardening. Arnold sent children’s things scattered around the house to the fireplace.
In May 2011, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who decided to return to the cinema after resigning as governor of California, announced that he was breaking up with Maria Shriver two weeks after the silver wedding. More than 10 years ago, Schwarzenegger became the father of an illegitimate child, son of Joseph, who was born by one of his housekeepers, Mildred Patricia Baena, about which Arnold told his wife after leaving the post of governor.
