Arnie ‘stepped over the line’ with women sev­eral times, but ‘felt bad and apol­o­gised’

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - CITY | ENTERTAINMENT -

Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger has ad­mit­ted to mis­treat­ing women in the past, adding that he had apol­o­gised for his deeds.

The 71-year-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,” the ac­tor told Men’s Health magazine.

“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.”

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.
