Arnold Schwarzenegger has admitted that his rivalry with Sylvester Stallone „spiraled out of control” when it started to „spin off each other”.
Appears in a new chapter The Graham Norton ShowIt is set to air this evening (October 27) on BBC1 at 10:40pm, with Schwarzenegger admitting that they compete with each other in their various action films and attack each other in the press.
The pair later became friends after collaborating on projects including a film franchise The Expendables and 2013s Escape Plan. Schwarzenegger said they are now „inseparable”.
Schwarzenegger said: „We were film competitors, but we took the competitiveness to the extreme – we had to have the best bodies, we had to kill the most people in our films, and we had to have the biggest guns.
„It got out of control, and we tried to derail each other. Then, when we both invested in Planet Hollywood, we started flying around the world together to promote it, and we became great friends. He’s a great guy, and we’re inseparable now.”
Earlier this year, Schwarzenegger said he would run for US president if he could, saying he „can see very clearly” how he would win.
The action star — who was born in Austria and immigrated to the United States in 1968 before becoming a U.S. citizen in 1983 — is ineligible to run, but said it would be „a no-brainer” if he could.
“The Constitution requires the President to be a natural-born citizen of the United States. If not, would you have run for president? Schwarzenegger was asked in one episode Who is talking to Chris Wallace? In June.
„Well, yes, of course,” the actor replied (via People) „I mean, I think the field was wide open in 2016. I think the field is wide open now. I mean, think about it now. I mean, who’s there? There’s not really one person who can bring everybody together,” he continued.
„Who’s here today, people? Well, he’s not too old or he’s not this, he’s not that, or it’s a question now of who you’re voting against rather than who you’re voting for.”
In 2021, Schwarzenegger said, Donald Trump „will go down in history as the worst president ever.”
