Stephen Merchant's Schwarzenegger Fascination

Stephen Merchant couldn't take his eyes off Arnold Schwarzenegger's "massive" head.

The comic actor - who co-wrote 'The Office' and 'Extras' with Ricky Gervais - admitted he couldn't take his eyes off the actor-turned-politician at the recent Golden Globe awards, which were presented by Ricky.

Talking about the event , Stephen, 35, said: "I just couldn't take my eyes off Arnold Schwarzenegger's head. It was just extraordinary. It was huge."

Despite being unable to take his eyes off the Governor of California, Stephen admitted the 'Terminator star was less than fascinating to watch.

And asked whether Arnold had laughed at Ricky's jokes, the funny-man revealed: "No, he was kind of stony-faced throughout. Not just for Ricky's bit - I didn't see a glimmer of emotion throughout the whole event. I didn't see him drink, I didn't see him laughing. I don't think he moved.

"It was mesmerising, just because it's kind of monolithic. And possibly because I'd watched 'Predator' the night before."
