Arnold Schwarzenegger Not Quite Ready to Say “Hasta La Vista” to Maria Shriver

Arnold Schwarzenegger opens up in a new interview about his relationship with estranged wife Maria Shriver. The screen legend says he still loves her and hope that the couple can one day get back together.

The scandal-scarred star told Germany’s Bild newspaper that he spent the Christmas holiday with Shriver and their four children and that the two remain on very good terms.

“We’re not fighting a war. I still hope for reconciliation — I still love Maria,” the newspaper quoted Schwarzenegger as saying.

After 25 years of marriage, Shriver filed for divorce in 2011 after learning that 65-year-old former California governor fathered a son with the family’s former housekeeper, Mildred Baena, in 1997. In his 2012 autobiography Total Recall, Arnie also acknowledged other affairs during his romance with Maria; including one with his Red Sonja co-star Brigitte Nielsen that ended shortly before his wedding to Shriver in 1986.

The Last Stand, Schwarzenegger’s first film since leaving the Governor’s Mansion, failed at the US box office — taking in a mere $1.9 million in its opening weekend, despite costing over $30 million to make.
