Schwarzenegger's Name Removed Quietly

28 December 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger's name was quietly removed from an Austrian stadium, formally named after the California Governor, on Christmas Day. The Terminator actor upset his native Austrians when he refused to block the execution of convicted killer Stanley 'Tookie' Williams in California earlier this month. The majority of Schwarzenegger's fellow Austrians are against capital punishment, leading the Mayor Siegfried Nagl in his hometown of Graz to grant a request from the actor to rename the Arnold Schwarzenegger Stadium as Stadium Graz Liebenau. In a letter to the city council last week, Schwarzenegger wrote, "In all likelihood, during my term as governor, I will have to make similar and equally difficult decisions. In order to spare the responsible politicians of the city of Graz further concern, I withdraw from them as of this day the right to use my name in association with the Liebenauer Stadium." The stadium was named after the actor in 1997. »

Schwarzenegger Shunned in Austria Following Execution

14 December 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's refusal to grant former gang leader Stanley 'Tookie' Williams clemency has sparked outrage in his native Austria. On Monday, Schwarzenegger refused to overturn the Crips gang founder's death sentence, and he was executed in the early hours of yesterday morning. And his refusal to spare the life of Williams - who was convicted of killing four people - has sparked harsh criticism from people across Austria. Leaders of the country's opposition Green Party are calling for the Terminator star to be stripped of his Austrian citizenship - a demand rejected by Chancellor Wolfgang Schuessel as "absurd" despite his government's opposition to the death penalty. And in Graz, Schwarzenegger's hometown, local Greens are planning to file a petition to remove Schwarzenegger's name from the city's Arnold Schwarzenegger Stadium. A Christian political group suggests it be renamed to honour Williams. »

Schwarzenegger's Health Scare

8 December 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was at the centre of a health scare in the early hours of yesterday morning, after he was taken to hospital with a rapid heartbeat. Hours after the actor-turned-politician lit the Christmas tree at the state Capitol in Sacramento, he entered nearby UC Davis Medical Center at around midnight local time with the complaint. According to his office, Schwarzenegger has the stomach flu. On the advice of his personal doctor, he went to the hospital, where doctors determined that his heart rate had returned to normal. He was observed for a few more hours before being released. Schwarzenegger's press secretary Margita Thompson says, "In 1997, Governor Schwarzenegger underwent surgery to repair hereditary valve dysfunction. Occasional rapid heartbeat is common following this type of surgery." The Terminator star, who has already returned to his regular working schedule, will go ahead with his planned public event at the state Capitol later today. »

Schwarzenegger Signs for Big Money Sequels?

12 October 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood action man Arnold Schwarzenegger may be set to juggle his role as California Governor with a return to the big screen - he has reportedly agreed to star in two big money sequels. The actor-turned-politician has agreed to re-team with Oscar-winning director James Cameron in a fourth Terminator installment in addition to a sequel to True Lies, according to website Moviehole.net. Eliza Dushku, who is excited about reprising her role as Schwarzenegger's daughter in True Lies 2, says, "We all caught up. Me, Jamie Lee Curtis, Arnold, and Jim (James Cameron), to talk about True Lies 2, about a month ago in California. We're doing it. Definitely doing it. I'm revved." And John Rosengrant, who is a special effects expert at Stan Winston Studios, confirms work on Terminator 4 is at a very early stage: "It's too early to figure out what a new Terminator would look like, or anything like that. You see the script and what spark comes from that, (talk) with the director and see what the vision is. It does no good to dream it up unless you write a treatment and try to get out there and sell it yourself." »

New Schwarzenegger Scandal Brews

16 August 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

A woman who allegedly had an affair with Arnold Schwarzenegger was reportedly paid $20,000 by the publisher of US tabloid the National Enquirer to keep the scandal secret. A friend of the woman, named by the Los Angeles Times as 46-year-old Gigi Goyette, claims she was also paid $1,000 by the tabloid to keep confidential what she knew, in reported deals that came just days after Schwarzenegger announced his candidacy for California Governor in 2003. The friend, Judy Mora, says, "I kind of felt that they just wanted to not hear more about Arnold and his women or his flirtations." At the time of the confidentiality agreement, American Media Incorporated, owner of the National Enquirer, was in negotiations to make Schwarzenegger executive editor of two fitness magazines which had helped make him the world's most famous bodybuilder, according to the Los Angeles Times. A spokesman for Schwarzenegger says he believes the actor-turned-politician knew nothing about the reported deals. American Media spokesman Stuart Zakim declined to comment on the report. The Terminator star ended a contract with American Media last month - just two days after it was disclosed that he had a deal worth at least $13 million over five years to serve as executive editor of Muscle And Fitness and Flex magazines. In 2001, two years before American Media bought the two fitness magazines, the National Enquirer reported that Goyette enjoyed a seven year-long affair with Schwarzenegger. »

Schwarzenegger Drops Controversial Magazine Deal

18 July 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger has ditched a multi-million-dollar magazine contract after he came under fire for his staggering yearly salary of $1 million. The Terminator star announced last year he had agreed to serve as executive editor for Muscle And Fitness and Flex magazines just before he was sworn into office as California Governor. Critics slammed the actor last week after the size of his consultation fees came to light - they argued the contract is a conflict of interest because his pay comes from advertising revenue and the magazines often feature advertisements about dietary supplements. However, Schwarzenegger's spokesman has disputed the argument, because the governor was not involved with selling advertising for the publications. The former action star says in a statement: "When I became governor I pledged to put the people of California front and center. I don't want there to be any question or doubt that the people have my full devotion. Therefore, effective today I will relinquish my title as executive editor and forego any compensation from the magazines. I will continue to promote weight resistance training, health and fitness for all through any avenue that is available to me as I have done my entire life." »

Schwarzenegger Slammed for Consultant Revenue

15 July 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger has come under fire, following the discovery he is being paid $1 million a year as a consultant to a company that publishes fitness magazines. The payments, revealed on Wednesday in filings at the Securities and Exchange Commission, are from American Media Operations, a subsidiary of the company that publishes magazines including Flex and Muscle & Fitness. Critics say the contract is a conflict of interest because California Governor Schwarzenegger's pay comes from advertising revenue and the magazines often feature advertisements about dietary supplements. Last year, Schwarzenegger vetoed a bill that would have imposed government regulations on the dietary supplement industry. Bill sponsor Senator Jackie Speier is calling on Schwarzenegger to cut off all ties with the magazines, adding, "Whether it is an actual conflict or not, it certainly gives the appearance of being a conflict." Schwarzenegger's spokeswoman Margita Thompson insists the deal with the magazines does not represent a conflict of interest. Schwarzenegger's consulting contract calls for him to receive one per cent of the magazines' advertising revenue each year for five years - a sum that could total $8 million. The Terminator star announced last year that he had agreed to serve as executive editor for Muscle & Fitness and Flex. He writes monthly columns for both, but his salary for those jobs has not been revealed. »

Schwarzenegger "Suspects Stallone of Nazi Smear Campaign"

25 May 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger suspects his former rival Sylvester Stallone of leading a secret 1980s campaign to give the Terminator star a reputation as a Nazi sympathizer, according to a new book. The two Hollywood action stars were bitter enemies in 1988, after Schwarzenegger enjoyed an affair with Stallone's ex-wife Brigitte Nielsen and accused the Rocky actor of hiring publicity agents to save his image. And in new book Fantastic: The Life Of Arnold Schwarzenegger, biographer Laurence Leamer claims Stallone sought vengeance by telling British journalist Wendy Leigh that Schwarzenegger's Austrian father helped round up Jews during the Holocaust and that Schwarzenegger was a "secret admirer of Hitler". Leigh claims Stallone paid her legal fees and covered her settlement to the Austrian actor, after he sued Leigh for libel when she published Stallone's alleged comments in a book. And although Stallone insists he did not contribute to Leigh's controversial tome, Leamer claims Schwarzenegger "reluctantly" confirmed he still believes Stallone worked to smear him as a fascist sympathizer, reports America's New York Daily News newspaper. The pair have since settled their differences and are firm friends again. »
