Happy BirthdayJuly 30, 1947
Born on July 30, 1947, in Austria, Arnold Schwarzenegger is a film actor and once a governor who rose to fame as one of the top bodybuilders in the world. His childhood life was far from ideal. Gustav, his father, was a police chief struggling with alcohol addiction, and who seemed to favor Arnold’s brother over his less athletic son. He always ridiculed his son’s early dreams of becoming one of the top bodybuilders, not knowing that it was in his blood. As an escape, Arnold turned to films, in particular a bodybuilder in B-level Hercules movies. Instead of taking comfort in his own home and family, he found his answers in a man behind the International Federation of Bodybuilding, Joe Wider, when he immigrated to the U.S. in 1968. Joe showed a lot of love to Arnold; love that he didn’t get back home. He saw the potential in him, which would later see the young bodybuilder win five Mr. Universities titles as well as six Mr. Olympia titles.
Arnold had always dreamt of making a big name for himself in Hollywood back when he was still in his hometown of Graz. With his fast ascension to the top bodybuilders globally, it was just a matter of time before he would move over and earn his much-needed acclaim on the big screen. After taking up small scenes in the 1976 movie Stay Hungry, Arnold finally received an award for Best Newcomer. His intense physical size and strength attracted leading figures in the film industry, who wanted to feature him in action films. In the 1980s, Arnold became very popular, especially with his performance in films like Conan the Barbarian, The Terminator and The Terminator 2. Arnold’s American story sounded unbelievable, except to people who knew him. After years of success in making top-action films, he decided to take a break and instead try politics. In 2003 he showed his resolve for success when he announced that he would throw his hat into the ring and compete for the governor of California. As expected, he won the seat in what many called a special election. The newly elected Republican promised his people to bring more economic stability to the state, which he did by introducing unique confidence to the new job.
Arnold Schwarzenegger gained international stardom as a bodybuilder, a career that would later see him become one of the most celebrated Hollywood actors. He is best known for his performance in action movies such as Conan the Barbarian, The Terminator 1 and 2, and Predator, not to forget his two terms as the governor of California.
Currently, Arnold Schwarzenegger lives in the city of Los Angeles, California. He also has a home in Ketchum, Idaho. After his two terms as the governor of California, he announced that he was willing to continue his career as an actor, working on more action films.
