Former California governor and muscle man film star Arnold Schwarzenegger is in the soup at the moment, needing not just a new job but a new wife as Kennedy clan spouse Maria Shriver has walked out on him following the revelation that he fathered a child with a long-serving member of the couple’s household staff.
But, as Adweek reminds us, Arnie, star of the Terminator movie among others (including Conan the Barbarian but that’s a bit close to home just now) has made a nice pot of money over the years making ads for Japan.
