Arnold Schwarzenegger’s life symbolizes the American dream for many. A former Mr. Universe turned Hollywood icon marries a member of the Kennedy dynasty and rises to the highest office in California as the state’s 38th Governor. Schwarzenegger recently revealed he fathered the child of a longtime household staff member more than a decade ago and that the woman continued to work in the family’s Brentwood home until earlier this year.
With his 25-year marriage shattered, his wife, Maria Shriver, moved out of their house and into a Beverly Hills hotel. Despite his numerous accomplishments, Schwarzenegger may be best remembered as yet another philandering politician. His behavior puts him in a class of high-profile prominent men who have been mired in sex scandals.
