Arnold Schwarzenegger opens up about his divorce

Back in 2015, Schwarzenegger appeared on the Howard Stern Show. Here, they discussed the former politician’s divorce at length, getting into Schwarzenegger’s perspective of the incident. He revealed that his split with Shriver was the lowest point of his life.

“I had personal setbacks, but this was, without any doubt, the biggest setback and the biggest failure. Without any doubt. Not only failure, but you feel like, ‘I’m to blame for it. It was me that screwed up.’ And you can’t point the finger at anyone else,” Schwarzenegger said,

The seven-time Mr. Olympia title holder admitted that it is easier to look back at mistakes and condemn them. “Always easy to be smart in hindsight,” he said. He and Shriver tried out therapy while going through the divorce, at her insistence. But for Schwarzenegger, therapy was not the answer.

“I know I screwed up. I don’t have to go through anyone, to have him explain to me anything.” He continued, “I Apologies to Maria. I apologized to the kids.” At his lowest point, he took inventory of the most valuable aspects of his life and made amends with his family first and foremost.
