Arnold Schwarzenegger Halts Acting Career Return

Arnold Schwarzenegger puts his acting career on holdArnold Schwarzenegger had set up a number of movie and TV projects since leaving the California Governor's office in January. Today, the actor put all of those projects on hold, to focus on his personal life. Here's the statement released by the actor's office.

"Governor Schwarzenegger is focusing on personal matters and is not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines. This includes Cry Macho. The Terminator franchise and other projects under consideration. We will resume discussions when Governor Schwarzenegger decides."

The actor recently separated from his wife, Maria Shriver, and revealed just days ago that he secretly fathered a child with one of his longtime staff members. It isn't known yet if Cry Macho or Terminator 5 will attempt to move on without Arnold Schwarzenegger, or if they will wait until he is ready.

Cry Macho was released in 2012.

Terminator Genisys was released July 1st, 2015.

          Oh, Arnold....what the hell were you thinking??? I cant believe he lived with this secret of his "other" kid for over a decade!!

          I personally dont give a sh*t about actor's outside lives....but it's ridiculous that he is just now telling his wife, right at the time he was supposed to start making movies again!!! Unbelievable.

                  Well too bad, I was really anticipating Arnold's comeback, but if he needs to get his family issues worked out, it's understandable.

                    Well then Arnie who's been a naughty boy lol. I think its a shame hes taking a stand back at the moment to concentrate on private matters, yeah hes aged a fair bit, but i grew up on the mans films and was looking forward to him acting again. SORT IT OUT SOON, WE MISS YOU lol x

                                  It's always adultery isn't it. Don't you hate it when that happens.

                                  Reminds of scene with Bruce Willis, using the funniest reasoning.

                                  Mike Mathews: It just happened, Joe.

                                  Joe Hallenbeck: It...Sure, sure, I know... it just happened. Coulda happened to anybody. It was an accident, right? You tripped, slipped on the floor and accidentally stuck your d**k in my wife. "Whoops! I'm so sorry, Mrs. H. I guess this just isn't my week."

                                    @incmob It might sound like blasphemy, but maybe it's time for Arnold to hang it up altogether. He's getting up there in age, this whole scandal is blowing up in his face, Shriver has lawyered up and will prob take him to town in the divorce. Depending on how much she gets in the settlement, might be time for him to stop and retire. The guy had an awesome run and starred in some of my favorite movies, nothing can take that away.

                                      He'd better take a break. Screwed up stuff.

                                        @rojodiablo i agree completely with you, but this is damage control for him, but your right, most of the actors in his age bracket are not playing the roles they did 20 or 30 years ago. the thing with arnold he has not been forgotten but out of the public eye, if politics are not your forte. and him coming back was huge news, seemed like everyone reported it on the web, and the fact that he may have continued his politics... that is pretty much out of the question now because of this... so what has he got left... bodybuilding or acting, and one of those is not really an option.
