Arnold Schwarzenegger calls it his ‘biggest mistake’

The action king experienced a downfall in his love life when his ex-wife Maria Shriver broke up with him in 2011. It happened after it was disclosed that he had a son with one of the housekeepers, Mildred Baena. 

Arnold Schwarzenegger was invited to Howard Stern’s Sirius XM show in 2015. There, the legendary bodybuilder opened up about his divorce from Maria. 

The icon also shared the fact that they went for couples therapy. Calling it his ‘biggest mistake,’ Arnold unveiled his disappointment. 

Because the guy was so full of sh*t. He said more crap and more nonsense,” said the actor and bodybuilder. “It was absolutely totally counterproductive to our future relationship, or to any hope to get together or anything like that. It was just nonsense talk.

The 75-year-old also revealed that it was initially Maria’s idea to try couples therapy. Although his intuition didn’t support it, Arnold chose to follow his then-wife’s suggestion. 

All in all, things turned out to be against his will and led to a setback. The former governor of California deeply regrets breaking Maria’s trust back then. Nonetheless, he finally spoke up and accepted his fault in front of the entire world.
