Mothers hold a special place in every child’s heart. For a child, their mothers mean the world to them. A child clutches on to this feeling throughout their life. For bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger, it is no different from any other child.

In 1987, Superstars and Their Moms, a movie featuring celebrities along with their mothers, was released to celebrate Mother’s Day. In the movie, the former Mr. Olympia also made an appearance along with his mother, Aurelia Jadrny Schwarzenegger.

The movie features Schwarzenegger showing his biggest acting achievements to his mother. He can also be seen showing her various clips of his movies. To which his mother replies, ‘I love it.’

Hearing this, Schwarzenneger says, ‘Then let’s celebrate.’

Saying this, the Terminator star picks up a bottle of champagne to celebrate the occasion. Over the next few seconds, viewers are left amused when the bodybuilding legend fails to open the bottle after several attempts. However, he keeps trying, refusing to give up.

Seeing this, a flustered Aurelia takes, or almost snatches, the bottle from her son, saying, ‘Give me.’

And she manages to open the bottle in no time, with a resounding pop. The hilarious results left viewers laughing and asking for more.

In the next shot, Arnold Schwarzenegger appears alone and says, ‘No one could have a better mother than I have. And I think when I think about my success in everything that I’ve learned in my life. I think it is too because of what she has taught me about love and dedication and taking sacrifices and morals and all those kind of things. So I cannot imagine being without her.’

‘I love you very much and thank you for everything that you have done,’ the actor concludes.
