Arnold missed action during political stintJuly 15th, 2012 - 6:32 am ICT by IANS
Los Angeles, July 15 (IANS) Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger said he missed doing action movies during his stint in politics.
“You wish you could do some of those things when you’re in politics, but you know, you can’t,” dailystar.co.uk quoted Schwarzenegger as saying at the Comic-Con convention in California, where he was honoured for his career.
The star was a box office favourite in the 1980s and 1990s thanks to his role in “The Terminator” franchise and family films including “Kindergarten Cop” and “Jingle All the Way”, but he turned his back on Hollywood to serve two terms as California governor.
His 2010 movie comeback “The Expendables” was a huge hit, and with a sequel set for release next month and a string of other roles in the pipeline, Comic-Con bosses handed Schwarzenegger their reputable Inkpot Award.
