Given this devastating turn of events, it’s perhaps unsurprising that none of Schwarzenegger’s family members give on-camera interviews. A slew of stars, including James Cameron, Jaime Lee Curtis, Danny DeVito, Sylvester Stallone and Linda Hamilton seem to describe their friend’s impact on Hollywood and California politics. Several of his friends and mentors from the bodybuilding world also provide fascinating insight into Arnold’s early years. However, we don’t hear from any of his five children, nor do we see an interview with the woman who has been by his side for nearly 30 years. Chilcott told MovieMaker that she contacted Shriver, who “politely declined” to participate. While both parents remain close, US Weekly reported that Shriver “doesn’t live with regrets” and wants to leave their painful pasts behind.
Arnold is pictured painting with his second daughter Christina and working out with Joseph, the only one of his children with an interest in bodybuilding, at Gold’s Gym. Although Arnold describes the devastation he caused his family as a major setback, he emphatically declares his affection for Joseph. “I love him and he’s turned out to be an amazing young man.” The half-siblings avoided each other at the premiere of Arnold’s recent Netflix hit ‘FUBAR’, walking the red carpet apart in support of their dad. Given the magnitude of this revelation, it’s understandable that they have negative feelings for each other, but maybe in time they’ll find a way to bond as a unit. non-traditional family.
