Arnold Schwarzenegger Reflects On His Misconduct Accusations In The Age Of #MeToo

Arnold Schwarzenegger Reflects On His Misconduct Accusations

Arnold Schwarzenegger faced sexual misconduct scandals long before the #MeToo movement.

In 2003, when he was running for governor of CALLEEFORNIA, he was accused by multiple women of having groped them without their consent. And he won anyway.

And somehow Donald Trump hates him. Huh.

At the time, unlike Trump, Schwarzenegger owned up to his bad actions, apologizing for what he incorrectly thought at the time was “playful” behavior.

Now in the age of Time’s Up, he’s reflecting on that once again, telling Men’s Health:

“Looking back, I stepped over the line several times, and I was the first one to say sorry. I feel bad about it, and I apologize.

When I became governor, I wanted to make sure that no one, including me, ever makes this mistake. That’s why we took sexual harassment courses, to have a clear understanding, from a legal point of view and also from a regular-behavior point of view, of what is accepted and what is not.”

He also says he regrets calling his political opponents “girlie men” during the famous gubernatorial recall race:

“At the time it felt like the right thing to do. It was in my gut. I improvised it. I called them girlie men because they weren’t willing to take risks. They were afraid of everything. Politicians in general want to do little things so there’s no risk involved. But it was shortsighted. In the long term, it’s better to not say that, because you want to work with them.”

Surely he meant to say “and also because it’s reductive to women, who are no less capable of governing and legislating than men.” Surely.

As for what he would do were he in power now?

“Access for everyone to health care. And to get off the arms race and to get off Verschmutzung [polluting]. It’s inexcusable to have so much plastic floating around in the oceans.”

Is he sure he’s still a Republican??

OTP Sally Field Leads Celeb Reactions To Burt Reynolds’ Passing

'Never Fade'

OTP Sally Field Leads Celebs Mourning Burt Reynolds

Burt Reynolds had a lot of costars, but never a chemistry like with Sally Field.

The two were pure magnetism in the 1977 classic road trip movie Smokey and the Bandit — so much that they costarred in TWO movies the following year, Hooper and The End and dated IRL for five years.

And just a couple years ago, Burt broke all our hearts by revealing Sally was his one that got away, calling her “the perfect person” for him.

Naturally, Sally had something incredibly sweet to say when she heard her ex had passed on Thursday, saying in a statement:

“There are times in your life that are so indelible, they never fade away. They stay alive, even 40 years later. My years with Burt never leave my mind. He will be in my history and my heart, for as long as I live. Rest, Buddy.”

Of course Burt had been in dozens of films and was beloved by a great many costars AND fans.

Chris Pratt & Katherine Schwarzenegger Are Getting More ‘Serious’ — ‘Hopeful’ About Their Future!

Not Slowing Down!

Chris Pratt & Katherine Schwarzenegger Are ‘Both Serious’ About Their Relationship!

Love may be a fickle devil in Hollywood, but the future still looks bright for Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger.

While they’ve only been dating a couple months, sources say the pair are “both serious” about their relationship — and getting more serious by the day!

The insider explained to People:

“It’s only been a couple of months, but they’re both serious about the relationship and hopeful for the future. Chris doesn’t just date to date, and neither does Katherine. She’s very excited.”

And why wouldn’t she be?

Over the past few months, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter has been spotted with the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom star going on bike rides, attending church dates, and even hanging out with Pratt’s 6-year-old son Jack.

The insider added that Katherine is “very, very sweet and maternal and great” with Jack, whom the actor shares with ex wife Anna Faris. Though the two aren’t ready for an engagement just yet, the source maintained they are “very compatible” and “have a lot in common,” adding:

“Chris and Katherine are very happy together… Family is very important to both of them, as well as their spirituality.”

Sounds like the perfect match!

As for Pratt’s relationship with Faris, the former couple seem to be amicably co-parenting since filing for divorce and requesting joint custody of their son last December. They were even recently spotted together with Jack before his first day of school.

Another source added:

“They were all together for school activities. They are very friendly and seem happy when they are together with their son.”

Great to hear!

Who said Hollywood divorces had to be messy?

Oh no!

On Friday, it was revealed that Arnold Schwarzenegger had to undergo emergency open heart surgery. According to reports, the actor turned politician stopped by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Thursday, in order to have a catheter valve replacement.

However, per TMZ, the procedure is still in the experimental stages and resulted in the 70-year-old having complications. Thankfully, the doctors on hand were prepared for a hiccup in the technique, and were able to move quickly in opening up Schwarzenegger. It’s said Arnold was in surgery for several hours.

This isn’t the first health scare that the industry vet has had. In case you forgot, back in 1997, Arnold had an aortic valve replaced.

As for his current condition, it’s being reported that he’s stable. Phew.

We’re wishing the Governator only the speediest of recoveries!!
