    Am I the only one who thinks he had far less of an accent in 1979 than now?

      Just watched a recent video… He’s much more horsey in the throat today.
      Makes me wonder whether it’s health related.

      I heard he has an accent coach to keep his accent, as since he’s been
      living in America for over 40 years, his accent should be gone.

      +sonikku956 lol That’s weird but it actually makes more sense.
      I also don’t understand why it’s still so thick (thatswhatshesaid), because
      I’ve seen people who lived there even shorter coming back with a thick
      American English accents over their native language…

    It seems like Arnold’s accent got thicker as time went on. He sounds almost
    like an average American white guy in this interview.

      I actually heard somewhere that he works with a speech therapist even today
      to keep his accent. It’s become such a part of his image that he just went
      with it.

    wow.. 37 years back and arnold was proving that women gets the best benefit
    from lifting..
    But even now.. the 95% still think that they will develop muscles or that
    it would not be the best exersice for them.
    They also had a lot of misinformation about diets and what they should eat,
    all diets they do make them flat!! so they said that is impossible to be
    thin with nice size breast..
    Women stupidity kills me… Not sure how many years more we will need to
    wait until they understand this!!

      Yeah this is true. I do a lot of weight training (nothing compared to
      Arnold, but more than the average Joe by far), and women often start
      moaning about how they’re out of shape and need to go on a diet, I
      recommend exercise first as it is not only more effective at losing weight
      but also transforms the body into something better (firmer, slimmer,
      healthier etc). Their response is usually along the lines of “oh I don’t
      want to be muscular”, but they wont be unless they’re lifting hundreds of
      lbs. Though it sounds like it might just be a collective excuse to not
