Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator 2 Makeup Made His Daughter Cry

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s most famous character traumatized his young daughter on the set of Terminator 2: Judgement Day. The second film in the Terminator franchise was a critical and commercial success that managed to eclipse the original. The movie, which starred Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Robert Patrick, and Edward Furlong, won several Oscars and is still considered one of the best sequels of all time.

Judgment Day recast Schwarzenegger’s villainous Terminator from the first film as the hero and protector of John Connor (Furlong). Sarah Connor (Hamilton) becomes reluctant allies with the Model 101 Terminator as they fight to save John from the more advanced T-1000 model and preserve John’s future as the leader of the resistance against Skynet, the AI that will eventually cause the apocalypse. James Cameron’s Terminator 2 is often considered the best film in the franchise, with the film containing plenty of emotion, action, and incredible special effect sequences. The make-up and special effects kept the film entertaining for the audience, but Schwarzenegger’s daughter felt differently.

On Wednesday, Schwarzenegger crashed Yahoo’s Kindergarten Cop reunion with the cast of former child actors and reflected on how his own kids would react to being on set. He recalled that for the most part, his children with wife Maria Shriver loved seeing him in action on the set of his big-budget films — except for his daughter Katherine, who “was crying, always, the first few movies.” He said:

“Maria would come out to the set when we were in the middle of shooting Terminator 2. And so she saw me when half of the face was gone and the eye was lighting up and all that. All this kind of weird makeup, so she started screaming and crying on the set because she didn’t understand why daddy looked like that.”

The former California governor joked that he “never, ever thought” that Katherine would grow up to marry an actor, based on her extremely adverse reaction to seeing her dad at work. As it turns out, that wasn’t the case, as Katherine grew up to marry an action star of her own: Chris Pratt. The couple wed in 2019, and this year welcomed their first child together. Schwarzenegger expressed delight at the turn of events, calling Pratt a “wonderful husband to her and such a great son-in-law.”

Elsewhere in the reunion, Schwarzenegger praised his younger castmates and credited them with helping to prepare him for fatherhood. As it happens, Shriver had given birth to Katherine shortly before production began on Kindergarten Cop. He also shared his memories of the famous “It’s not a tumor” line. According to Schwarzenegger, the kids would crack up at his delivery of the line, even as the large, intimidating man was shouting it. He remembered director Ivan Reitman telling him, “If the kids are laughing at the way you sound, then I think the audience will laugh, too.”

Schwarzenegger certainly had the right idea for what made the comedy so enduring. Ironically, what also made Kindergarten Cop work was placing an actor known for his role as a terrifying villain (the kind that would make a child cry) in a room full of kids. In fairness to his daughter, though, Katherine Schwarzenegger couldn’t have been more than a year old when she visited her dad on the set of Terminator 2: Judgement Day; it makes sense that she would burst into tears!

‘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.
