Arnold Schwarzenegger - Producer Sticks By Arnold Schwarzenegger Despite Scandal

The producer behind Arnold Schwarzenegger's big screen comeback insists he will stand by the actor following his recent lovechild scandal.
Earlier this month (May11) the action man-turned-politician confirmed he had split from his wife of 25 years, Maria Shriver.
It then emerged Shriver had left Schwarzenegger after he confessed to having fathered a lovechild with a former assistant at their home more than a decade ago.
But despite the controversy surrounding the star, bosses on his new movie Cry MACho are adamant the scandal won't make a difference to filming.
Producer Albert Ruddy tells The Hollywood Reporter, "We're shooting August 24; we're in serious pre-production now. It hasn't affected our sales. It's going to be interesting if we get even a bump on the foreign side. This is not gonna be a black eye for a guy with an astounding career.
"This is just another one of those things no one will remember. Bill Clinton went through horrendous things, and now he's regarded as one of the most popular presidents... The only thing that matters is how good the film is. If it fails, they'll say it's because of the scandal. If it succeeds, they'll say in spite of it. It doesn't matter. The film talks for itself."
