Born July 30, 1947 in an Austrian village, bodybuilder, actor, and past Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger would be influenced heavily by his strict upbringing. Raised Catholic and always trying to prove himself to his father, Arnold would take up the sport of soccer as a young boy, eventually changing to body building at the age of 15.
Having become one of the most influential figures in the history of bodybuilding, Arnold Schwarzenegger would set his eyes on his next goal- becoming a world renowned actor! Strong, both physically and mentally, it wouldn't take Arnold long to realize his dreams taking on the title role in a 1970 production of Hercules in New York. His big film breakthrough, however, would come in 1982 with Conan the Barbarian. A box-office hit, Arnold Schwarzenegger would become the hottest man in town!
