My role in 'The Last Stand' was very demanding: Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger says that his first major role in the movie "The Last Stand" after leaving the post of Governor was physically very demanding.

The 65-year-old said he had to work very hard for his film, reported contactmusic.

"From the beginning to the end I was punching, I was shooting, I was running, I was in cars, I was in crashes... and it was from beginning to end. I did a lot of the chase scenes, a lot of the fast driving - I love driving fast," said Schwarzenegger.

The actor also said that he knew after leaving the office of Governor he would have to go back to acting.

"After the Governorship, I felt I would have to ease myself back into action, one step at a time. But that is not what happened. I remember visiting a movie set as Governor and seeing one of the actors hanging upside down in a harness.

"A friend of mine asked me, 'Don't you miss that?' and I said, 'No, I'd rather be in Sacramento, surrounded by legislators who are not always on your side and can make things very difficult, but I'd rather do that than hang upside down on a harness. I just can't see myself ever doing that again.' Well, sure enough, in this movie I hang upside down on a harness!" said Schwarzenegger.
