Arnold Schwarzenegger is opening up about how he sexually assaulted women in the past.
The actor-politician spoke about this in the new issue with Men’s Health where he admitted to sexually assaulting women, how he often misbehaved and reiterates how sorry he feels about his past behavior towards women.
And now, he tells Men’s Health in an interview published in its 30th-anniversary issue that he is sorry. “Looking back, I stepped over the line several times, and I was the first one to say sorry. I feel bad about it, and I apologize,” the 71 said.
He continued, “When I became governor, I wanted to make sure that no one, including me, ever makes this mistake. That’s why we took sexual harassment courses, to have a clear understanding, from a legal point of view and also from a regular-behavior point of view, of what is accepted and what is not.”
He also apologised for often calling his political opponents as “girlie men.”
And when asked if his views of masculinity have changed, Schwarzenegger told Men’s Health, “I’ve not changed my view. I’m a guy. I would not change my view of who I am. The woman I was originally most in love with was my mother. I respected her, and she was a fantastic woman. I always had respect for women.”
