Arnold Schwarzenegger plays an interesting role in the Netflix series "Fubar". What is interesting is that his character experiences a marriage falling, just as he experienced in the reality world in 2011 when he divorced Maria Shriver.
Arnold talked about whether the split from the film reminded him of his split 12 years ago. “We were laughing about it — it feels like it’s a documentary,”- he said, as quoted by pagesix.com “The difference is, in the show, he doesn’t consider it cheating because [seducing CIA assets] was part of his profession.
His wife moved on because he never was home, and now he has this dilemma with the daughter because she has the same job and it’s going to screw up her relationship, too. But in [my real-life marriage to Shriver], it was my f–k-up.
It was my failure”. Arnold Schwarzenegger recalled the difficult moments he experienced after the divorce. He knew that he still had to accept such things, and he continued with his life. “[The divorce] was very, very difficult in the beginning.
Eventually, you move on. I have a wonderful girlfriend, [physical therapist] Heather Milligan, who is very successful. I’m really proud of her, and I love her”.
Arnold Schwarzenegger on divorce and his children
Even though they went through a divorce, that didn't stop them from still getting along for the sake of their children.
“She and I are really good friends and very close, and we are very proud of the way we raised our kids. Even though we had this drama, we did Easter together, Mother’s Day together, the Christmases together, all birthdays — everything together”.
For Arnold, the most important thing is that they managed to raise their children in the right way. "If there’s Oscars for how to handle divorce, Maria and I should get it for having the least amount of impact on the kids.
The sweetness and kindness you see in them, that’s from my wife. The discipline and work ethic is from me”.
