Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Best Reddit IAmA One-Liners

Arnold Schwarzenegger, The Governator himself, did an IAmA for Reddit to promote his upcoming film The Last Stand today. Here are some of the best questions/responses/one-liners from the action legend’s thread.

Schwarzenegger was asked a lot about some of the stand-out moments of his film career, with many references to lines and scenes that are still frequently referenced or parodied in popular culture. For instance, he was asked by one Redditor whether the line “Get to the chopper!” was in the script for The Predator, or if it was improvised. “Get to Choppa was in the script. Stick around was ad lib, as are some of the more wild one-liners,” he replied.

When asked “In your films are all the “Ayyaagh’s” in the script or do you improvise them?” Schwarzenegger humorously responded: “All improvised. Every single one.”

When asked if there are any plans for Twins 2, Arnold responded via iPad:

He was also humorously asked “Is it a tumor?” Arnold replied again via iPad:

The IAmA was filled with a ton of other fun factoids, as well. For instance, which film does Schwarzenegger most regret turning down? “I most regret not doing The Rock. I love the movie, and it turned out well. When it was offered to me there was only an 80 page script with a lot of handwriting and scribbles and it didn’t seem fully baked. But they obviously did a fantastic job.”

What director has Schwarzenegger not worked with, but would love to someday? “I would like to work with Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg. Also Sam Raimi would be great to work with.”

Asked: “Is this the happiest you’ve ever been?” with this image:Arnold happy
User FUTBALAR responded “No this is when he was the happiest,” with this image:

To which Schwarzenegger responded: “Futbalar wins.”

“I hate to break it to you, FUTBALAR, but being told by Arnold that you win is the peak of your existence; from here on, it’s all downhill,” joked redditidditor.

Schwarzenegger also touched on politics, and most Reddit users seemed to agree that The Governator showed quite a bit of political insight during the IAmA. Reddit user y0nkers asked: “What are your thoughts on the current state of the Republican party?”

Arnold Schwarzenegger responded, thoughtfully:

“The most important thing is that we need to be a party that is inclusive and tolerant. We can be those things and be the party we always have been. We need to think about the environment – Teddy Roosevelt was a great environmentalist and people forget Reagan was the one who dealt with the ozone layer with the Montreal protocol. We also need to talk about healthcare honestly – Nixon almost passed universal healthcare. We need to have an talk about immigration and realize you can’t just deport people. We need a comprehensive answer. We also need to stay out of people’s bedrooms. The party that is for small government shouldn’t be over-reaching into people’s private lives.

“Mainly, we need to be a party where people know what we are for, not just what we are against.”
