Meet the Tuminator
By Barry Wigmore, Daily Mail

His bulging muscles made him a five-times winner of the Mr Universe title.

It took Arnold Schwarzenegger years of pumping iron to build the body that won him stardom in movies such as Conan the Barbarian and The Terminator.

But it has taken just two years of good living as the governor of California for the 57-year-old's shape to go somewhat belly-up.

Schwarzenegger's hint of a spare tyre where lean muscles used to ripple was evident when he took a dip in the Pacific off Maui, one of the Hawaiian islands, where he is on holiday with his wife Maria Shriver and their four children. Earlier, he had gone to church with his family, then

was given a neck massage on the beach by his TV journalist wife, who doesn't seem to mind his extra pounds.

Friends say the Austrianborn former strongman has never fully recovered his once-startling physique since an operation to repair faulty heart valves in 1997.

Critics blame the cardiac problems on his admitted use of steroids while bulking up for bodybuilding contests 20 years ago. Schwarzenegger, who is known to enjoy fine wine and big cigars, denies this - and points out that steroids were new and not illegal when he used them.

I'm finally well on my way to having a physique like Arnold's. :D

He still looks better than me with his shirt off :(

Being governor of one of the largest states has probably cut into his workout time.

Looks like a story straight from The National Enquirer. Are we suppoosed to believe this rubbish based on one picture that could have easily been a Photoshop Project?!?

Then again, Conan was released in 1982 (1st pic above came from). That is 23 years ago. Therefore, Arnold was 34-years-old. Do most men keep the same physiques from age 34 to age 57?

No offense to the member who posted this story from England, but a very dumb story. National Enquirer type bollocks.

The Daily News top-story for today... Britney may be pregnant based on "new bikini pics". Enuff said.

Even if the photo is true, the guy is a 57 year old man.

Cut him some slack.

How many 57 year olds do you know who are in body builder shape?

Drudge/British Tabloid Drivel, as usual
