(Canoe) – Arnold Schwarzenegger feels like “damaged goods” and thinks the way he looks now “sucks.”
The 76-year-old bodybuilder-turned-actor has always been known for his muscular physique and he finds it hard to look in the mirror now because he doesn’t like the way his body has changed.
Speaking on The Howard Stern Show, he said: “I kind of smile because every day I do look in a mirror and I say, ‘Yep, you suck.’
“I look at this body … look at those pectoral muscles that used to be firm and perky and really powerful with a striation in there. Now they’re just hanging there. I mean, what the hell is going on here?
“It’s one thing to see yourself get older and more and more out of shape but most of the people have never been in shape. So what does it mean getting out of shape?
“When you’ve been hailed for years as this supreme body, and you have the definition and you see the veins coming down your abs, and you see veins on top of your chest and then … you roll the clock 50 years and you’re standing there and you don’t see that anymore.”
While the Terminator actor acknowledged he looks better than the “majority” of people his own age, he isn’t satisfied.
He said: “I never, ever thought about that when I was 30 years old or 40 years old that this (was) going to happen. It just sucks.”
The former Governor of California explained things changed for him when he had heart surgery at the age of 50, leaving him feeling like “damaged goods” because of the limitations imposed on his lifestyle.
