“I Should Get My Money Back for That One”: Once Blaming Sylvester Stallone for It, Arnold Schwarzenegger Regrets Spending Money on a Lost Cause

7-time Mr. Olympia, Arnold Schwarzenegger, was assured by many that he would never make it into the American film industry. The bodybuilding prodigy from Austria did not know English when he came to the new country, but he was determined to learn. He beat all odds and climbed the charts more than once. His most successful movie to date is Terminator, among other famous blockbusters. Arnold’s thick Austrian accent was what got him the role of Terminator because James Cameron felt it was perfect for the role of the cyborg. However, the Austrian Oak had also blamed Stallone, his rival and friend, for not being able to lose the thick accent.

During his recent appearance at the Jimmy Kimmel Show for his book launch, the duo spoke about Arnie’s time as the Governor of California, his acting stint, and bodybuilding. While talking about his acting career, Kimmel could not help but ask about his accent.

He asked, “At one time you took accent removal lessons, is it true?” Arnold replied with an affirmative and hilariously said, “Yeah! I should get my money back for that one.” The audience roared with laughter at his remark. He had this verdict because he claimed that the heavy Austrian accent in his English tongue was still present even after all these years. The FUBAR actor continued, “It was this guy, Robert Easton. Robert Easton is like the speech doctor. He was kind of like teaching the most famous actors in history, you know, how to create accents.” However, the accent doctor could not take Austria out of Arnold. He said, “But I don’t think he worked on someone to get rid of an accent.”

The Austrian Oak’s response was contradictory to the belief that Sylvester Stallone and he had a rivalry. Their competitiveness was neck to neck as Arnie said, “It was all about who is making bigger movies, who has more definition in their muscles, who has more box office success, who kills more people (pauses) creatively, who has bigger knives, who has bigger guns.”
