Arnold Schwarzenegger Says It's Great To Be Back Acting
(Extra ) Arnold Schwarzenegger is starring in his first leading role in "The Last Stand" since leaving the Governor's office. Arnold sat down with "Extra's" Maria Menounos to talk about his return to the big screen as a small town sheriff trying to prevent a cartel leader from escaping across the border.
Arnold telling Maria, "For me it's great to be back." Maria asking, "Do you feel like you'll ever be too old to do stunts?" Arnold, "When I crash through a door, I'm getting up a little slower, and my bones ache, and my knees ache."
Maria had a special message from Arnold's former nemesis, Sly Stallone, who joked, "Why don't you quit... seriously I have enough competition... I don't need to see you back so soon... oh my god it's like it doesn't go away... put a stake in its heart... it just lives... you're too good... he's just too good. "
Arnold telling Maria he and Sly actually get along nowadays, "In the 80's we were fierce competitors... we hated each other... even though we admired each other, but we wanted each other to go away, but now we get along really well. We got to an age where we said what is that all about... why are we competing... why can't we be supportive of each other."
"The Last Standing" hits theaters January 18th. (Extra)
