Arnold Schwarzenegger Museum Opens In Austria
Arnold Schwarzenegger may have taken his lumps lately here in America with a nasty divorce, paternity suits and sexual harassment allegations but back in his native Austria he is still looked upon as a most favored son. Now, according to FOX News, a museum dedicated to him complete with a bronze statue of young muscle builder Arnold has opened in his home town of Thal. And who do you think was there to dedicate it? Three guesses.If you said “The Terminator” you are correct. Arnold spoke to assembled group of admirers and spoke on the symbolic significance of the museum.
“My personal success has less to do with millions of dollars or with the headlines in the media that are not always positive and also not with being clapped on the shoulder by Barack Obama and other world names,” he said. “Personal success is the result of determination, hard work and stubbornness.
“For me, this is not only a museum,” he added, gesturing to the yellow-stuccoed house behind him. “It is also a symbol of will … everyone has a chance.”
It was a great day for the actor-turned-governor who, nonetheless, will have to return to the States and face his problems.
