ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGERL'artefice dei film d'azione moderni, e' stato definito l'ottava meraviglia del mondo per la perfezione della sua struttura fisica, il mentore di tutti i bodybuilders, protagonista di colossal cinematografici che rimarranno immortali come Conan, Terminator, Commando, Predator, tutti nel nome di un solo mito: Schwarzy!
 

BIOGRAFIA

Arnold Schwarzenegger è sempre stato simbolo di virilità e devastante forza fisica. Nato in Austria il 30 Luglio 1947 a Thal in un paesino a pochi chilometri da Graz (lo stadio della città è dedicato a lui), inizia presto la sua carriera di bodybuilder ponendosi come obiettivo di vincere al più presto il titolo di Mr.Universo. Inizia ad allenarsi strenuamente nel garage di casa sua, trasformato per l'occasione in palestra, nel `61 conosce Kurt Marnul, ex Mr. Austria, che gli propone di allenarsi all`Atletic Union di Graz; inizia così la gloriosa carriera del più grande culturista di tutti i tempi, prima come Mister Europa junior, poi a soli 20 anni (il più giovane in assoluto) come Mr.Universo. Nel `68 decide di cercare fortuna oltreoceano e si trasferisce a Santa Monica, viene assunto come carpentiere e gareggia per Mr. Universo contro il suo idolo Reg Park (vincendo ancora), e ottiene anche un ruolo per il suo primo film Ercole a New York, dopo essere stato scartato per la serie tv sull`incredibile HulkTHE AUSTRIAN OAK della Marvel perché non sufficientemente alto, telefilm cult che ha reso famoso il suo amico Lou Ferrigno. Gli anni `70 vedono i suoi strepitosi trionfi nel campo sportivo, con ben 6 titoli di Mr. Olympia (il settimo titolo lo conquista nel 1980), ma anche alcune grandi sofferenze personali come la perdita del fratello in un incidente stradale e poco dopo quella del padre. Nel `78 durante gli incontri di tennis di Forest Hills conosce Maria Shriver, una nipote dei Kennedy, che poi sposa nel 1986, mentre nel `79 si laurea in economia e marketing all`Università del Wisconsin.
Ormai superati i trent`anni decide di dedicarsi al cinema a tempo pieno: Arnold si afferma come eroe dei film d'azione grazie ai due film sul mitico Conan e soprattutto Terminator di James Cameron, un vero capolavoro di fantascienza. Nel 1983 diventa cittadino americano e inizia a dedicarsi anche a commedie di ottima fattura come I gemelli. Fonda la sfortunata catena dei Planet Hollywood con Stallone, Bruce Willis e Demi Moore. Negli anni `90 è protagonista dello spettacolare sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day, gira inoltre True lies sempre diretto da Cameron. Arnold ha deciso di rimandare la sua carriera politica (nel futuro del possente attore c'è la candidatura a governatore della California come rappresentante dei repubblicani) per regalarci ancora tanto spettacolo e tante emozioni: Terminator 3, True Lies 2 e King Conan saranno gli ultimi omaggi ai suoi milioni di fans in tutto il mondo? Il 19 settembre in tutte le sale italiane ritorna nei mitici panni del cyborg T-800 (T-850) nel colossal Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.

BIOGRAPHY

Arnold Schwarzenegger is certainly a name we won't soon forget. This bodybuilding champion has the biceps and the brains to take him a long way from his native home of Austria. His thrive for success in everything he undertakes has brought him to where he is today, ever since he crossed the ocean to the US to take part in the 1968 Mr. Universe competition. Born on July 30, 1947 in Graz, Austria, Schwarzenegger was raised with strict rules and morals instilled by his parents. The second son of a police officer in his native town, his childhood was a very difficult one and the building block for his character today. The beginning of his bodybuilding career began when he wanted to join the soccer team. He began lifting weights, and his destiny was already starting to pan out. He later joined the Austrian army at 18 in order to follow his strict diet. His stay was very short as he went AWOL to take part in the Mr. Junior Europe competition, which he won by the way. And so a legend was born. Schwarzenegger started piling up professional titles and later went on to win the International Powerlifting Championship before he made the move to the US in 1968. After winning Mr. Universe as an amateur and a professional, he was gradually becoming the talk of the weightliftingSCHWARZY industry. This launched his weightlifting career and he won six consecutive Mr. Olympia titles from 1970 to 1975. He had pretty much realized his dream of becoming the best-built man in the world. He temporarily ceased competing as he felt he "wasn't giving others a chance to win." His first role in a motion picture was for the movie Hercules Goes to New York in 1970, which later landed him an appearance on the "The Merv Griffin Show". A short-lived venture into show business led him to start a construction company with his bodybuilder friend Franco Columbu. The profits were going to fund a mail-order business of fitness material such as books and cassettes. Driven by his passion to be taken seriously and be wealthy, he managed to obtain a correspondence degree in business and international economics from the University of Wisconsin. His constant inflow of money allowed him to live the life of a superstar even before his bodybuilding documentary Pumping Iron came out in 1977. His rise to wealth brought him to invest in real estate, where he was living comfortably in a $200,000 home on the West Coast. Schwarzenegger won a Golden Globe for Best New Actor in the 1975 movie Stay Hungry. His acting career didn't take off, however, until he obtained the lead role in Conan the Barbarian in 1982. His most memorable and career launching role came with The Terminator in 1982 with director James Cameron. This sci-fi flick presented Schwarzenegger as a cold-hearted cyber killer. His following movies were also box office champs: Commando (1985), Total Recall (1990), Twins (1988), and Kindergarten Cop (1990). His personal life also turned out to be a success. After dating Maria Shriver for eight years, they finally got married in 1986. Niece to former president John F. Kennedy and therefore part of the Kennedy legacy, Maria had now brought an avid Republican to the forefront. Schwarzenegger was often seen alongside president George Bush during his administration, as Chairman of the President's Council on Sports and Fitness. Terminator 2: Judgment Day, made its presence felt in theaters when it was released in 1991, which turned out to be one of his most commercial successes to date. One of the most respected actors in Hollywood, Arnold is now in the comfortable position of being able to select the projects he wants to partake in. Taking up the director's chair is also a potential goal in the near future for this man who made his American Dream come true.
