Arnold Schwarzenegger: Here’s Why We Like Him so Much

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been busy promoting not only his new movie Terminator Genisys, but also raising awareness for After-School All-Stars, a charity that provides after-school activities to children, in order to keep them safe and help them succeed in life. So we took this opportunity to see why we like Arnie so much.

 

 

1- Cool

 

The guy is cool, there is no other word to describe his persona. Have you ever seen anyone looking cool while taking a selfie with a selfie-stick? Arnie can! He also has arguably the best catchphrases in cinema history.

Did I mention that he also owns a tank?

 

2- Sense of Humour

 

He has a great sense of humour. Pranking people in Hollywood, the Terminator Arnold said that he had a lot of fun doing it. It sure looked like fun to me.

 

“Let me help you.”

“He looks so real!”

“Because I am.”

“Who are you?”

“I’m the Terminator. Who are you?”

3- Over Achiever

“Austrian-born, American actor, model, producer, director, activist, businessman, investor, writer, philanthropist, former professional bodybuilder, and politician” – Wikipedia

 

From humble beginnings, It seems like everything that he has attempted he has managed to succeed at it. Here are his achievements so far according to Wikipedia. Austrian-born, American actor, model, producer, director, activist, businessman, investor, writer, philanthropist, former professional body-builder, and politician. Phew!

 

4- Iconic

 

The man was Conan, Terminator and Governator. When we think of the machines rising, the first thing that springs into everyone’s minds is a robotic Arnold Schwarzenegger saying he will be back.

 

5- Made in Britain

 

He was made in Britain, in 1967 Arnold jump-started his career in London with the help of the now infamous Jimmy Savile.

 

Bonus

 

Oh! Here are two bonus musicals that we had a laugh watching.

International man of non-mystery. My passion for all things tech comes from a very small age, since the first time I learned how to connect a VCR and make it work (I was 5). My first PC was an Apple II. I have fond memories about the first time I connected to a BBS and the first time I connected to the Internet via that same bulletin board system. I love films and TV series.
