Arnold ad­mits step­ping over the line sev­eral times with women

Financial Chronicle - - NONE OF MY BUSINESS -

Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger has ad­mit­ted mis­treat­ing women in the past and apol­o­gised for his deeds. The 71year-old ac­tor said when he as­sumed the of­fice as gov­er­nor of Cal­i­for­nia in 2003, he as­sured no one, in­clud­ing him, re­peated the mis­take.

“Look­ing back, I stepped over the line sev­eral times, and I was the first one to say sorry. I feel bad about it, and I apol­o­gise. When I be­came gov­er­nor (of Cal­i­for­nia), I wanted to make sure that no one, in­clud­ing me, ever makes this mis­take. That’s why we took sex­ual ha­rass­ment courses, to have a clear un­der­stand­ing, from a le­gal point of view and also from a reg­u­lar-be­hav­iour point of view, of what is ac­cepted and what is not,” Sch­warzeneg­ger told Men’s Health mag­a­zine.

The Hol­ly­wood ac­tion icon, how­ever, added he would not change his per­spec­tive of what it means to be a man. “I’m a guy. I would not change my view of who I am. The woman I was orig­i­nally most in love with was my mother. I re­spected her, and she was a fan­tas­tic woman. I al­ways had re­spect for women,” he said.
