After 25 years of marriage, the ex-Governor of California and “terminator” star Arnold Schwarzenegger, 63, has separated from his wife Maria Shriver.
In a statement released to the media the ex-couple said,
"This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us. After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion, and prayer, we came to this decision together. We are continuing to parent our four children together. They are the light and the center of both of our lives. We consider this a private matter, and neither we nor any of our friends or family will have further comment. We ask for compassion and respect from the media and the public."
We do know that Arnold is getting back into the movies and already has two productions underway with “The Last Stand” and “Cry Macho”.
“Cry Macho” is about retired horse trainer who gets caught up in an international kidnapping scheme.
“The Last Stand” is about a drug cartel leader who busts out of a courthouse and flees to Mexico where the only thing in his path is a sheriff (Arnold) and his staff.
Arnold has also told insiders that he wants to do another “Terminator” movie.
Maria Shriver worked for NBC as a journalist and is active in several charity organizations. Maria’s mother was the sister of assassinated U.S. President John F. Kennedy .
Here is an interesting fact:
During Arnold’s two terms in office the couple never lived together and Arnold commuted to Sacramento by private jet. The couple spent weeks not seeing each other and were frequently on opposite coasts.
Maybe we should have seen this one coming, or maybe we just didn’t want to believe it.
