Arnold Schwarzenegger has lived the American dream. Born in Austria in 1947, he emigrated to the U.S. in 1968, won five Mr. Universe and seven Mr. Olympia titles, and earned a college degree.
His Hollywood career is legendary. Though his most iconic role is the Terminator, his many films include "Predator," "Twins," and "True Lies," and have grossed more than $3 billion.
In 2003, Schwarzenegger made a historic run for governor of California, won two terms and ushered in an era of innovation. He made California a world leader on renewable energy and climate change, set a revolutionary reform agenda, and invested in infrastructure.
Since leaving office, he's led the fight against partisan gerrymandering and climate change, boosted after-school programs, and advocated healthy living.
