Arnold Schwarzenegger is a name that most people know and they recognize him in different personas. Someone might be acquainted with him as the seven-time Mr. Olympia-winning bodybuilder, and others might know him as the Barbarian or the Terminator. The legend is also known to many as the former governor of California who served for two years.

 Jimmy Kimmel asked Arnie a question about the 2007 writers’ strike when he was the governor of California. Kimmel started by saying, “And you were governor during that writer’s strike in 2007 when we were on the air at that time.” He continued, “Did you get involved in that? Or is that a governor’s place even to get involved with the strike and to bring both sides together to try to get them to settle?”

The Austrian Oak answered candidly about the situation and said, “Well, you try to inspire them to speed up the process.” Kimmel threw a joke in the end as well by asking the icon whether “ threatening” the individuals involved in it, was away. Then Arnie started his explanation with the line, “The things that you wish you could do you can’t do.” Arnold then went on to narrate how the best possible way to end this kind of unrest was by locking the world leaders into a room until they found a solution to the problem. The former governor of California gave an example from his childhood when his father would lock him and his brother in a room until they solved the fight.

Similarly, Arnie suggested that for this kind of problem, like a writers’ strike, the best possible solution would be to lock the studio executives and the union leaders together in one room until they found a solution to the problem together. He also goes to the extent of saying that the room would not have any amenities. He said, “You can get out before the negotiations are settled you say there will be no food, no bathrooms.” The Terminator actor went on to add, “So there is an urgency there that can guarantee within a few days the strike will be settled.” Even Jimmy Kimmel suggested a hilarious idea: “Maybe put them in a plane covered with diarrhea .” The audience burst into laughter at this pro tip from the talk show host. Arnold previously gave his opinion on the latest SAG-AFTRA that ended on Sep 27th.

When asked about the opinions of different sides in this issue by David Marchese of the New York Times, the 76-year-old veteran actor had a diplomatic take on the matter. He did not divulge the details of what he thought and said,“It’s more complicated than what they say.” The FUBAR actor also spoke about the impact of A.I on the film industry: “A.I. is the thing that we are worried about, or Netflix is not really paying us residuals? It’s not that simple.”

The 76-year-old bodybuilder and actor has extensive experience associated with showbiz and politics,  and how things work in these industries. He said, “When you get deeper into the weeds, you find out what it means.” Finally, he added, “I don’t want to get into it. I have to stay neutral on all this stuff.” However, he gave an insight by saying that there is much more to the situation than what meets the eye.
