Arnold Schwarzenegger for president?
This is a dream the 69-year-old action star wishes were a reality, he shares in a new interview with Adweek. The former Governor of California isn't eligible given that he was born in Austria, but says if it wasn't for this setback, he definitely would've entered into the 2016 race.
"If I'd been born in America, I would've run," he tells the magazine. "Because now? This was a very good time to get in the race."
This isn't the first time Schwarzenegger has talked about seriously wanting to run for POTUS. When asked by Jay Leno during his appearance on The Tonight Show all the way back in April 2010 if he would consider making a run for the White House, he replied, "Without any doubt."
In October 2013, he actually lobbied for support to change the law to allow him to run for president in 2016, Page Six reported.
For the record, Schwarzenegger has said he won't be voting for Trump in this year's election, despite being a Republican. Interestingly enough, he is taking over Trump's role on The New Celebrity Apprentice -- NBC's reboot of the show -- which debuts on Jan. 2.
Schwarzenegger talks about his longtime career in Hollywood with Adweek, and why he's still so popular today.
"I realized early on in bodybuilding that you have to be able to sell yourself, your ideas, your position to the public," he explains. "You have to set yourself apart, whether it's policy or movies. How do you make them remember you?"
His work ethic, of course, is also second to none.
"It has to sound appealing to me, it has to be challenging, it has to be something I can get consumed in," he explains about being obsessed with whatever project he's working on at the time. "It's fun to climb the mountain rather than sit at the top."
