Action man-turned-California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has thrilled his animal-loving friends and fans by agreeing to ban foie gras from the state.

The TERMINATOR star was lobbied by animal rights groups and celebrities like Sir Paul McCartney to ban the forcefeeding of ducks and geese to create the gourmet liver pate in California.

And he has gone one step further - he's outlawing foie gras altogether. The new legislation will kick in in 2012.
