Arnold Schwarzenegger believes that President Donald Trump is in love with him and says he wants to be & # 39; me & # 39; while opening himself to their long-term public feud.
In an interview with Men's health, Schwarzenegger gave possible explanations for why he was publicly mocked by Trump after his short and low-esteemed stint as the replacement Celebrity Apprentice host.
& # 39; He is in love with me. That is the reality of it. With Trump, he wants to be me & # 39 ;, the 72-year-old told the publication.
President Trump began hurling public insults at Schwarzenegger when the actor and former California governor replaced him in 2016 to 2017 as the host of NBC's Celebrity Apprentice.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, who played his lead role in the latest Terminator movie in November, opened his feud with President Donald Trump in an interview with Men & # 39; s Health on Tuesday
It became one of the lowest rated seasons of the show and was subsequently canceled.
Trump lashed out on Twitter and said: & # 39; Arnold Schwarzenegger does not leave the student voluntarily, he was fired by his bad (pathetic) assessments, not by me. Sad end to great show & # 39 ;.
Schwarzenegger hit back at the time and tweeted: & # 39; You should think about hiring a new joker and a fact checker & # 39 ;.
The Terminator star also recently criticized Trump for running away from the climate change agreement last year and said this year at the Hollywood Foreign Press dinner that he & # 39; nothing nice to say & # 39; about him.
But Schwarzenegger said their relationship wasn't always that sour.
& # 39; I don't think he's scared of me. But I remember that when we went to the wrestling matches, the way he admired people with bodies, the way they would jump in the ring, and perform physical stunts and the like – he greatly admired that, & # 39 said Schwarzenegger in the interview with Men & # 39; s Health.
& # 39; He asked me: how do you do that with the movies? I mean, it's so believable. He penetrated specific questions that fascinated him. It was about How do you sell something? Like a scene. How do you play a scene so that I am emotionally influenced?
& # 39; He was fascinated by that. How do you do this when you conduct interviews – that you penetrate through and are then completely credible? & # 39;
President Trump began swinging public insults at Schwarzenegger for the first time when the actor and former California governor replaced him as the host of NBC & # 39; s Celebrity Apprentice in 2016 to 2017.
During the interview, Schwarzenegger also opened what California governor taught him from 2003 to 2011.
& # 39; I always complain that Trump cannot switch from Trump to president. Well, the reason why I say this is because I saw it in myself that I couldn't switch from Arnold to governor, & he said.
Schwarzenegger appeared on the cover of Men & # 39; s Health with co-star Gabriel Luna prior to the November release of Terminator: Dark Fate
& # 39; I was still stuck as Arnold. Arnold always gets things done. I forced myself in there, then I do it and do it and do it until it's done. And I felt the same as what I can do with politics.
& # 39; But I quickly learned that it really isn't. You must be able to bring people together. It takes much more time, much more effort, but that's just the way it is. If you don't like that, don't go into politics. & # 39;
Schwarzenegger said that although people around the world can criticize America for Trump, he believes they still want to come to the country.
& # 39; When I travel the world, it is most common that people always come to me – and I am a very accessible type of man, right? – People come to me at the gym or in a restaurant and say & # 39; America & # 39 ;, he said.
& People everywhere, no matter how much they dump on America, no matter how many people around the world now laugh at Trump – they want to come to America. Because they know that one president, one man cannot change this country. & # 39;
Schwarzenegger returned to acting after his period in politics and is now, despite being in the 70s, about to play with Gabriel Luna (left) in Terminator: Dark Fate, which will be released in November
His 36-year-old co-star started meeting Schwarzenegger for the first time and said: & # 39; You can easily be overwhelmed because he is a historical figure & # 39;
Schwarzenegger returned to acting after his period in politics and is now, despite his seventies, about to shine next to Gabriel Luna in Terminator: Dark Fate, which will be released in November.
His 36-year-old co-star started meeting Schwarzenegger for the first time and said: & # 39; You can easily be overwhelmed because he is a historical figure & # 39 ;.
& # 39; But he doesn't place himself on a pedestal like that. He always makes sure that people are face to face. And with that I think you disarm the madness, you know? & # 39; Luna said.
Luna said he had put his body in a good place awaiting the meeting with the Terminator star.
& # 39; I knew I needed to get my body in the right place because I was drinking whiskey and smoking cigarettes and all the other things I didn't have to do if I was going to play this role, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; I know that in the end I should stand in front of this man and my motivation was, I want him to see me and see a formidable enemy. I don't want him to see and think me, I could crush this man with my thumbs. & # 39;
He said that he had once asked Schwarzenegger's advice to play a Terminator.
& # 39; I only asked him once when we were at the gym and he told me he wanted me to make something of myself. But what he could offer when I pushed him a bit further was that it was effortless.
& # 39; Everything must be effortless. When you fire a weapon, you fire it from the hip – there is no reason to look down (from your gun), because you already have a target in your eyes … No blinking, only automatic gunfire. & # 39;
