Arnold Schwarzenegger likely lost out on tens of ''millions of dollars'' over politics. Schwarzenegger was the Governor of California and that meant he couldn't take nearly as many movie roles as he would have if he had not been involved in politics. The 'Last Stand' actor took a seven-year break from acting to pursue his political dreams and while he loved being able to give something back to the people of America, he admits it wasn't great for him financially. The 66-year-old Austrian said: ''I always saw my movie career as ongoing. I stepped out for seven years to be Governor of California but I was never trying to be a career politician who runs for Congress and the Senate. I just felt since America has given me every opportunity to achieve in life. I should take time out to serve the people regardless of the lack of pay. »
