A year after the # MeToo movement launched to denounce men of power accused of sexual abuse, in all professional sectors, the 71-year-old actor expressed remorse for his attitude towards women.
“Looking back, I have often gone too far and I am the first to apologize. I feel remorse and I apologize, “said the star of Terminator in an interview with Men’s Health magazine.
Referring to the # MeToo movement, he said, “When I became governor, I wanted to make sure no one, not even me, made that mistake. That’s why we have taken courses on sexual harassment to have a good understanding at the legal level and also in everyday life, what is acceptable or not. “
When asked if his opinion on masculinity had changed, Schwarzenegger said, “I have not changed my mind. I am a dude. I would never change who I am. The woman I loved most was my mother. I respected her, she was a wonderful woman. I have always had a lot of respect for women. “
In 2011, Schwarzenegger was in the middle of a public scandal when it was revealed that he had a child with his cleaning lady while he was married to Maria Shriver. A child is born from this extra-marital relationship.
