Arnold Schwarzenegger admits to having a past feud with one of the action stars.
The septuagenarian former governor of California visited the JReham Norton Showon Friday, as he admitted that he and Sylvester Stallone started out as major “cinematic rivals” before becoming “great friends.”
“We were competitors in the movie world, but we took our competitiveness to the extreme,” the “Terminator” star explained at the show.
“We each had to have the best bodies, we had to kill more people in our movies, and we had to have the biggest weapons,” Schwarzenegger continued.
“It got out of control, and we tried to derail each other,” he added.
“Then, when we invested in Planet Hollywood, we started flying around the world together to promote it and became great friends.”
Both Stallone and Schwarzenegger found fame and fortune in Hollywood in the 1970s, with Schwarzenegger bursting onto the scene in 1970 with “Hercules in New York” and Stallone having a major hit with 1976’s Oscar-winning “Rocky.”
In addition to their partnership with Planet Hollywood, the two action heroes would eventually star in the same films, including 2013’s “Escape Plan” and the “Expendables” series.
This year, both Schwarzenegger and Stallone have also become the subjects of Netflix documentaries, with “Arnold” premiering in June and “Sly” set to debut next month.
