If you look at the career of Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is known for playing the excellent Terminator, the hero of Predator, the hero of Total Recall or even the famous Conan the Barbarian, you might think that he will not have it. He has many regrets.
Still, the man who also served as California’s governor from 2003 to 2011 might make a few different choices if he could do it all over again. Indeed, while he described his first role in 2017’s Hercules in New York as “really stupid”, the actor also confided in his fans that he instead blamed himself for turning down the role.
“My biggest regret is not doing rock”he said in 2011, during a question-and-answer session at the forum.
“I love the film and the production has gone well. When I was offered the script, it was only 80 pages long, there was a lot of handwriting and notes, and it just didn’t feel right. “It looks really finished. But clearly. He did a great job.”
Directed in 1996 by Michael Bay, Rocky is truly one of the most popular feature films of his career. If Arnold Schwarzenegger agreed to join the adventure, he would play Stanley Goodspeed, a chemical weapons expert eventually played by Nicolas Cage, who is responsible for working with a former Alcatraz prison escapee (Sean Connery) to thwart the plans. A terrorist is trying to destroy San Francisco.
“I loved this movie very much (…)“Schwarzenegger also announced in 2013 in The Sun newspaper (broadcast).
“Also, Nicolas Cage did an amazing job. I don’t know if I could have done him as well, but I was mad to turn down the role because he was really great.”
