Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger is re­cov­er­ing in a Los An­ge­les hos­pi­tal after heart surgery.

The 70-year-old for­mer Cal­i­for­nia gov­er­nor had a sched­uled pro­ce­dure to re­place a pul­monic valve on Thurs­day, ac­cord­ing to Sch­warzeneg­ger’s spokesman. He was in sta­ble con­di­tion Fri­day.

Sch­warzeneg­ger was a body­build­ing star be­fore turn­ing to movies.

His ca­reer as an ac­tion hero took off with the box-of­fice hit Co­nan the Bar­bar­ian in 1982. His role in the Ter­mi­na­tor in 1984 pro­pelled him into box-of­fice su­per­star­dom.

He served as gov­er­nor of Cal­i­for­nia from 2003 to 2011.

He had surgery in 1997 to re­place the same heart valve. A mo­tor­cy­cle crash in 2001 left him with sev­eral bro­ken ribs. He’s had a hip re­placed and had ro­ta­tor cuff surgery in 2003.
