Arnold Schwarzenegger – body-builder and actor

When Arnold Schwarzenegger came to live in America, he didn’t even speak English. Now he’s not only one of the most successful American actors but also the governor of California. Schwarzenegger is one of the main Hollywood male icons of the 1980s and 1990s.
He was born on July 30, 1947 in a little Austrian town. When he was ten years old, he had the dream of being the best in the world in something. When he was fifteen, he dreamed of being the best body builder in the world. Five years later, he turned this dream into reality. Arnold became Mr. Universe, the best-built man in the world. He won it five times consecutively. He became the winner of the top professional body-building championship six times.
His acting career began with a role of Hercules in a mediocre television film. His first memorable screen appearance was as himself in George Butler and Robert Fiori’s documentary on bodybuilding contests, Pumping Iron (1977).

Today, Pele is famous. But in 1950, he was a boy of ten with no shoes. This is his story.
