Arnold Schwarzenegger is probably one of the most famous people walking this planet. I mean, he’s certainly the most famous Austrian. He has punched his ticket as someone who not only revolutionized bodybuilding, but also Hollywood and American politics.
He’s a trailblazer with an incredible work ethic. But, that doesn’t mean he never made poor choices or hit roadblocks. As you’re about to see, he certainly dipped his toes in both of those categories.
The Early Years
Arnold Schwarzenegger was born on July 30th, 1947 near Graz, Austria. He rose to fame through his muscles, which probably isn’t all that shocking.
His father was an abusive police chief who would pit Arnold’s older brother against him. Their relationship was so rocky that he wouldn’t attend either of their funerals after they passed away.
