As astonishing as his bodybuilding career was, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s seventh and final Mr. Olympia win in 1980 didn’t signal retirement, but rather a metamorphosis. After hanging up the posing trunks, he became a Hollywood megastar, headlining the biggest action flicks of the ’80s. His role as Conan the Barbarian (1982) was followed by the relentless T-800 in The Terminator (1984), making his indisputable accent fodder for millions of Arnold wannabes. But Arnold’s post-O years haven’t been confined to the silver screen. After George . Bush dubbed him “Conan the Republican,” in 2003 the Oak made a Reaganesque move by making it into the California governor’s mansion. With political speeches, heart surgery, ski accidents, a Kennedy marriage, and philanthropy, Arnold, now 69, has had an incredible life and career. And he’s not done: As host of The New Celebrity Apprentice next January on NBC, Arnold is once again back in the spotlight.
