Arnold Schwarzenegger was caught in a messy affair with an illegitimate child and he makes no excuses for his actions! He knows he screwed up by cheating on Maria Shriver!
One does not climb to the top in politics, bodybuilding and acting, however, without a positive attitude!
"I'm the forever optimist. So I do see that Maria and I get together eventually. You know, it takes a lot of time to heal those wounds and to trust each other again. But, you know, I will make every effort."
We're touched to learn he doesn't view his marriage or his kids as expendable!
His autobiography, Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story, is step one in reclaiming his life and his once impeccable public image.
And Arnie won't try and shirk responsibility!
"It was a situation where I couldn't even blame anybody else but myself, because my wife was a fantastic wife. [Maria] was a great friend, she was a great adviser, everything, great mother. I mean, my kids were fantastic. The thing that I cherished the most, you know, I destroyed by some stupid things that I've done. For me, it's important to kind of rebuild again, get the trust back with the kids, with my wife."
Keep your chin up, sir!
And terminate any obstacles in your way!
