Miriam Margolyes scorn for co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger

People hold Schwarzenegger in high esteem due to his numerous accolades as a bodybuilder and an actor. Moreover, most people who have come across the star have nice things to say about the man. But Margoyles begs to differ on the personality of the ‘Terminator’ star.

She has worked with the bodybuilder-turned-actor on a previous project. And after getting acquainted with the celebrity, her disdain for the actor increased even further.

The British-Australian actress co-starred with the former governor in an action horror movie that did not do too well at the box office. However, the experience of working with the star left her with an even bitter feeling. Recollecting her time working with the action star, Margoyles said, “Arnold Schwarzenegger is a pig of a man.”

“We worked together in 1999,” the actress added, specifying the year they worked on the movie. The film they co-starred in was ‘End of Days,’ a film that failed to capture the audience’s imagination. Moreover, it garnered some harsh reviews upon its release.

However, Margoyles had harsher words reserved for Schwarzenegger. Addressing the reason she disliked the star, she said, “He thought a lot of himself, but I wasn’t surprised: he was a bodybuilder from Austria who went on to become a worldwide star.”

But this would not be the last time the actress spoke out against the actor.
