Bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger may have risen to fame because of his success at Mr. Olympia and Mr. Universe contests. However, his biggest break came with the release of the first film in the Terminator franchise.

In the first installment of the Terminator series, Schwarzenegger plays the role of T-800, an android sent from the future to “shut people down.” However, during an appearance at The Late Late Show With James Corden for the ‘Spill Your Guts Or Fill Your Guts’ challenge, the former governor got into character and shut his host down.

What was the question that Arnold Schwarzenegger asked James Corden?

On the show, guests and the host exchange questions. The show also features a table containing various bizarre “food” items. As part of the challenge, the one refusing to answer a question takes a bite of the food allotted to the person. However, when it was the actor’s turn, he asked a question that caught the host off guard. Corden took some time before he could answer the question the Austrian Oak asked.

Reading from the card, Schwarzenegger asked, “You recently attended a wedding that was also attended by Ivanka Trump. What did you talk about?”

He proceeded to repeat the question as if to emphasize it. The host even tried to talk his way out of it, but Arnie did not fall for his bluff.

Flustered and looking at the writers behind the set, he said, “This is bulls*** because I know you write the questions.”

However, Corden finally gave in and replied after putting some thought into it. He said, “I will say this, I was a little drunk. And I was with Orlando Bloom, who I think was equally, if not slightly less drunk than I was. And we stood at the bar.”

“And Ivanka was also at the bar, and I can’t 100% remember it, but I remember that we were quite drunk, and we started going, ‘Ivanka, you can do something, you can do something. You can do something. You can make a difference. You can make a difference. You can make it better.And Ivanka, I remember, Ivanka was going, ‘I’m trying, I’m trying,’ ” the host added.

However, that was not the end of it. Corden continued with the narrative and revealed that the events had skipped his mind altogether until he saw Ivanka Trump again the next day. And all the memories started to pour in after seeing her, including the conversations.

Then he mentioned that Ivanka remarked that he must have quite a headache from all the drinking the previous night.

The bodybuilder-turned-actor said, “I think he was always kind of nice in private, but in public, I think that he’s very mean-spirited, what he says.

However, they were not always this bitter towards each other. At one point, the two even attended wrestling events together. But that seems like history now.
