Biography for Arnold Schwarzenegger
Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger
Nickname: Arnie, Austrian Oak, Conan the Republican, Styrian Oak,
6' 2" (1.88 m)
Growing up in a small, isolated village in Austria, he turned to
bodybuilding as his ticket to a better life. Prior to that he served a
mandatory one year in the Austrian military (beginning in 1965). After
conquering the world as arguably the greatest bodybuilder who ever
lived, he went to America to make his name in motion pictures. Hampered
by his impossible name and thick accent, success eluded him for many
years. It wasn't until he found the tailor-made role of Conan that he
truly came into his own as a performer. A succession of over-the-top
action films made him an international box office star. By alternating
violent action films with lighter, comedic fare, he has solidified his
position as one of the most popular - if not the most popular - movie
stars in the world. After his long, and successful movie career, he ran
in the California recall. He is now the Governor of California, yet
again another celebrity to be elected to the position.
