Michael Caine has blasted Arnold Schwarzenegger's bid to become
California's next Governor - because he thinks the action man is mad to get
involved in politics.
Hollywood is split by those supporting Arnie and those who think his
political ambitions are a joke.
But British Caine isn't pulling any punches - he's convinced acting and
politics are too far apart to meet.
He says, "Why would Arnold want to do that? It's the exact opposite of
everything an actor does - very little work for a great deal of money in
"He's going into somewhere where you work your butt off for no money and
reveal everything about yourself.
"I don't understand it, but I wouldn't want him to come round to the house
and beat me up. He'd be cheap, I guess, because you don't have to buy security
guards for him. He's his own security."
