Actor-turned-politician Arnold Schwarzenegger is facing a fresh barrage of sexist slurs, after making comments on a movie DVD.

The Austrian native, who is shortly to be sworn in as Governor of California, is accused of making derogatory comments about Terminator 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES co-star Kristanna Loken during an interview on the movie's DVD.

This adds to previous claims by various female colleagues that he groped them on set and made lewd comments.

Speaking on the DVD about a scene where Loken's robotic character inflates her breast to distract a cop, Arnold says, "This scene with the enlargement of the breasts was fantastic. In the audience you saw women sitting there, telling each other, 'Now, that's a great idea. I've got to check out where you get that done.'

"So you can deflate and inflate your breasts on command. Because there's some guys that like little breasts and some guys who like big breasts. Wouldn't it be nice if you could play both sides, sometimes simultaneously?"

Californian rape counsellor KAREN POMER fumes, "This is a man who has the maturity of someone in junior high school. It's pretty scary that he's going to be running California."
