Schwarzenegger Has No Regrets Leaving Acting Behind
ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER has no regrets over leaving his phenomenally successful movie career behind to become the Governor of California, because it was time for him to "move on".
The Austrian-born TERMINATOR star was more than happy to retire from movie-making as his current political role ensures he can still maintain a high public profile.
Schwarzenegger, 57, says, "I get my ego satisfaction from the press conferences, appearances and speeches I have to do now. I'm in front of cameras all the time, so I don't miss it at all.
"It's like asking, do I miss body building? I train every day, but I don't miss standing up there in those posing trunks, to prove that I'm the best-built man in the world.
"It was great when I was young but you grow up and something else becomes more important.
"After 25 years in motion pictures it was time to move on."10/10/2004 21:28
