Arnold said - "When I was 15 I took off my clothes and looked in the mirror. When I stared at myself naked, I realized that to be perfectly proportioned I would need 20-inch arms to match the rest of me".
And this is how the five Mr. Universe titles and seven Mr. Olympia titles winner Arnold started his bodybuilding sport and became a Hollywood's biggest star.
Arnold was born in a small middle class family in a small village in Austria. From a young age, he took a keen interest in physical fitness and bodybuilding, and used to take part in minor contests in Europe. In 1968 at the tender age of 21 his star began to rise as he had come to land of opportunities United States. According to Arnold's childhood friends he had three goals in his life -
1. Move to America
2. Become an actor,
3. Marry a Kennedy(His wife Maria Shriver is a niece of the late President John F. Kennedy and Senators Robert F. Kennedy and Ted Kennedy.).
And he accomplished all the three.
He holds the prestigious Guinness Book of World Records, "the most perfectly developed man in the history of the world."
Performed many of his own stunts in his films, owing largely to the fact that it was hard to find stunt doubles who matched his size.
His life strangely mirrors the life of Conan from Conan the Barbarian (1982). Conan was born in a small village and grew up to be a physically powerful man. After winning great fame as a gladiator, he is given to wine and women, but later rejects this hedonistic lifestyle and goes on to perform great heroic feats and eventually is crowned king. Arnold was born in a small Austrian town and took up weightlifting as he got older. After achieving success as a bodybuilder, he indulged in drug abuse and womanizing, but he later rejected this and went on to become a vocal supporter of social causes, and was eventually elected Governor of California(10/7/03).
He saved a man's life while on vacation in Hawaii in 2004 by swimming into the sea to rescue him from drowning.

James Cameron originally wanted him for the role of Kyle Reese in The Terminator (1984), but after reading the script, Arnold asked Cameron to let him play the part of the Machine. Cameron replied "No, no! Reese is the star! He's the big hero! And the Terminator hardly has any lines!" but Arnold asked him to "trust me".
And The Terminator goes on.....
