Arnold Schwarzenegger Sold His $1.5M Bugatti Veyron – One of World’s Fastest Street Cars – To Make Gargantuan $1M Profit

The 75-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger and the 60 years that he spent under the spotlight is a saga of an Austrian boy’s rise to the most famous and recognized man in the world. The Austrian Oak, as he has endearingly been nicknamed by the bodybuilding community, stands as a testament to Schwarzenegger’s influence on the same, and his eventual fame in the upper strata of Hollywood elites and the filmmaking community later paved the path for many from the WWF world (re: Dwayne Johnson, John Cena, Dave Bautista) to find a second shot at fame among the glittering boulevards of la la land.
Now, the former 7-time Mr. Olympia finds himself at a crossroads where selling off luxury cars and basking in some modicum of normality in its aftermath seems like a good enough idea.

After a life marked by politics and activism, the Governator finds himself at a period of time when there is nothing to do but rest and enjoy the fruits of his extended labor. For a man who has been so busy making a name for himself, leisure seems a difficult concept to grasp. Rising out of a small Austrian village town, Arnold Schwarzenegger was a teenager when he decided a life of conforming was not for him – “…every time someone said, ‘You can’t do this,’ I said, ‘This is not going to be for much longer because I’m going to move out of here. I want to be rich. I want to be somebody.’”

However, now that he is here and the life he envisioned has happened already, and there is nothing more to accomplish, Arnie looks back at the objects of his past, things he picked up along the way, and to the fans’ disappointment, decides to part with one of the most valuable possessions in his collection. A silver Bugatti Veyron, the legally marketable fastest street car that exists right now, has been transferred from Schwarzenegger and now lies under the ownership of a Nigerian businessman, Obi Okeke for nearly $2.5 million.
The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse has been known to reach 0 to 60 mph in under 2.5 seconds and has a staggering 1000 horsepower. It also boasts a pair of mounted twin turbo-charged V8 engines.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
