Arnold Schwarzenegger doesn’t care if we make fun of him, so go ahead and let ‘er rip!
The “Terminator” actor doesn’t care if fans make fun at his everyday accent, especially for his famous saying “I’ll be back!” His said that he doesn’t mind because it means that society is accepting of his culture and has definitely moved past the horrors of the second World War.
He said, “It’s great. When I see, for instance, on these late-night talk shows, the hosts making a joke about about me it proves that perception has changed. It is no longer frightening. In the seventies, people were frightened of the German accent. People said it gave them goosebumps.”
He went on to say, “They were like, ‘This guy scares the s**t out of me’, and, ‘Oh f**k, are they back?’ But all this chat show shtick and people imitating me came about so more people could hear it and it became part of America.”
He added, “I’ve never been out of shape. But it is a little different when you’re 65 to when you’re 35, there no two ways about it. When I was 35, and when I did the Conan movies, I was never really sore the next day. Now I’m like, oh man, I’ve gotta take some Advil. I know I’m not the young action guy any more. I know that when I get up its like this [clutches his back].”
