Mr. Universe. One of the world's biggest movie stars. Governor of California. Few have achieved as much as Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Born in Austria, after it was left in ruins from the Second World War, Arnold dreamed of being a bodybuilder and Hollywood star. He won a dozen major bodybuilding titles before dedicating himself to acting - and by the early '90s, Arnold was "bossing" the box office in both action and comedy.
Then, like Ronald Reagan before him, he made the switch from acting to Republican politics and was elected governor of California. Arnold explores it all, including the end of his marriage to Maria Shriver, in his new memoir, 'Total Recall'.
