Arnold Schwarzenegger Almost Didn’t Say “I’ll Be Back”- Dirty Laundry
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s memoir isn’t only about sex, lies and housekeepers. Arnold also talks about how he almost screwed up his most iconic catchphrase.
In Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story, the action star says he fought with Terminator director James Cameron over his “I’ll be back” line.
Arnold thought it sounded “too feminine.” He writes, “I was arguing for ‘I will be back.’ I felt that the line would sound more machine-like and menacing without the contraction.” The Governator says Cameron “looked at me like I’d lost my mind.” Then Cameron said, “Look, just trust me okay? I don’t tell you how to act, and you don’t tell me how to write.”
Could you imagine if it sounded like anything else?
