Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger (born July 30, 1947) is an Austrian-American bodybuilder, Golden Globe-winning actor, businessman and politician, as well as the 38th Governor of the U.S. state of California.

As a young man, Schwarzenegger gained widespread attention as a highly successful bodybuilder, winning an impressive seven Mr. Olympia titles. He later gained worldwide fame as a Hollywood action film icon, with roles in such blockbusters as The Terminator and Total Recall. Schwarzenegger is married to Maria Shriver and has four children.

As a Republican, he was first elected on October 7, 2003, in a special recall election to replace then-Governor Gray Davis. Schwarzenegger was sworn in on November 17, 2003, to serve the remainder of Davis's term. Schwarzenegger was then reelected on November 7, 2006, in California's 2006 gubernatorial election, to serve a full term as governor, defeating Democrat Phil Angelides, who was California State Treasurer at the time. Schwarzenegger was sworn in for a second term on January 5, 2007. In May 2004 and 2007, he was named as one of the Time 100 people who help shape the world.

This is an action star the way action stars were meant to be - brimming with movie star immunity! He turns awesome catch phrases, and you really do get the impression - even in his lightest roles - that he's capable of killing you.
