Arnold Schwarzenegger, apropos of nothing except his new film The Last Stand co-starring Johnny Knoxville (in theaters Friday!), showed up on Reddit’s IAmA (Ask Me Anything) subforum today to answer questions in beautiful cursive handwriting on his iPad, which he then uploaded onto the site. Adorable!
Let’s look at some of the better responses.
“How has the shift back to Hollywood from the Governor’s office been?”
“My daughter Chloe who is 9 is a big fan of yours. She would like to ask which role is more fun to prepare for action or comedic roles?“
“What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever recieved in your life?“
“Arnold, you’ve lived three lives in one. You were the reason I started working out when I was a kid, you’re an inspiration to all. A bodybuilder, actor then Governor. Which has been the most challenging role in your life?“
And the question on everyone’s mind: “Will you be making Twins 2?“
This bonus question wasn’t answered in cursive, but it still bears repeating: When asked what he most regretted, Mr. Schwarzenegger responded:
I most regret not doing The Rock. I love the movie, and it turned out well. When it was offered to me there was only an 80 page script with a lot of handwriting and scribbles and it didn’t seem fully baked. But they obviously did a fantastic job.
But who would he have played? Nic Cage? Sean Connery? We don’t think he’d have been believable as a government chemist.
