Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger in Graz, Austria on July 30, 1947.
Mr. Universe and seven-time Mr. Olympia who, has become one of the world's
leading box-office attractions, married into one of America's foremost families
and built a thriving business and real estate empire.
He earned a Golden Globe as best newcomer for his role in Bob Rafelson's Stay
Hungry (1976). Schwarzenegger's screen persona, a physique that strains the
imagination combined with a thick Austrian accent, took a major credibility
boost with Terminator, The (1984), which cast him as an android. His trademark,
automaton-like delivery of minimal lines such as "I'll be back".
has been a carefully orchestrated career, reflecting an aggressive business
and marketing acumen which has also brought him success in other fields (he
now produces the "Mr. Universe" and "Mr. Olympia" pageants
he once dominated).
With an eagerness
to adapt reminiscent of some of the earlier immigrants who founded America's
entertainment industry, he has wholeheartedly embraced the American way, becoming
a naturalized citizen in 1983. Schwarzenegger was appointed Chairman of the
President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports in 1990.
