Arnold Schwarzenegger puts career on hold

By Alexandra Heilbron on May 20, 2011 | 11 Comments

Arnold Schwarzenegger is putting his acting career on hold to focus on personal matters after publicly admitting he fathered a son out-of-wedlock (shown at left) with Mildred Patricia Baena, a maid who worked for the family. Baena has been quoted as saying that in the morning after Arnold’s wife, Maria, left for work, she would wait for her employer in his marital bed. His office released a statement yesterday that read: “At the request of Arnold Schwarzenegger we asked Creative Artists Agency to inform all his motion picture projects currently underway or being negotiated to stop planning until further notice. (He) is focusing on personal matters and is not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines. This includes Cry Macho, The Terminator franchise and other projects under consideration. We will resume discussions when (he) decides.” According to Radaronline, Schwarzenegger only came clean to his wife about his illegitimate son after she confronted Baena about the boy. Baena admitted the affair and when Maria asked Arnold about it, he finally told the truth.

    He does look like a young Conan the Barbarian on this picture.

    At 63, he can take all the time off he wants, it’s not like he needs the money, it’s time to retire anyway, it’s not like he can pull off the Commando type movies anymore anyway.

    You’d think he would have asked the women 10 years ago to “terminate” it

    this is why ladies and gentlemen…you where a CONDOM when you plan on sleeping around behind your partner’s back. This is why you DON’T knock up the one on the DL. I wonder if Arnie’s rethinking his opinion on abortion lol

    P.S just kidding don’t flame me about the abortion crap peeps. It was just a choke.

    This poor kid, his whole life had been turned upside down. None of this is his fault, but I’m sure he’s the one suffering the most. People commenting on his appearance, he’s just a little boy! Show some maturity!

    Oh ya I’m sure he’s having a terrible time knowing he now is rich and daddy will take care of him

    Linda… That’s a boy?!!?!

    Mitch, he’s a kid, I think feeling safe and secure is a little more important to him than money. And knowing the person he’s called Dad all those years isn’t his dad, imagine how that would feel.
