Austrian-American actor, filmmaker, businessman, author, philanthropist, activist, politician, and former professional bodybuilder and powerlifter. He served as the 38th Governorof California from 2003 to 2011.
By The end of 2018 a close friend of mine who is also a close friend with one of my favourite actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, commissioned a portrait of the great "Terminator". After the painting was done, my friend could not resist to show it ti Arnold whom automatically fell in love with the portrait. He asked to meet me in person. Schwarzenegger liked the portrait and wanted it. I was invited to his house in Bell Air with my wife and kids. He kindly welcomed us on a Thanksgiving Day, was so nice with my children and we had a long entertaining talk of art, culture and business.
I can't think about admiring and respecting someone else more than him through sll the stages of his career. I have never heard about anyone else being so amazingly successful in every direction that he chose to take from acting to governing the State of California twice. Normally, it would take three of four lives to achieve what he did in one. To me, Arnold is an inspiration, and a great example of a man of strong mind and determination. He is a living legend.
