Arnie argued over most famous line

16 August 2012

Arnold Schwarzenegger has revealed he never wanted to say his now famous line from The Terminator: "I'll be back!"

The line has now become a catchphrase synonymous with the action star, but Arnie confessed he actually argued with director James Cameron on the set of the 1984 film, because he wanted to say something else.

Schwarzenegger explained: "I remember when we did Terminator - 'I'll be back'. I had no idea it was going to be an important line. In fact I had an argument with Jim Cameron.

"I said 'I will be back' and he said 'No. I wrote it. I'll be back' and I said, 'I don't like how the l sounds, it sounds a little soft'. Maybe it's more machine-like if I say I will be back'. He says 'No. I wrote it. I'll be back. Do me a favour and say it'.

"Sure enough when the movie came out, people would go, 'Say the line, say the line' and I'd say it and they'd go no say it like you do in the movie. I realised that line was a big line."

The Hollywood hardman is happy to play on the joke of "I'll be back" in his movie comeback The Expendables 2.

He said: "I think one-liners are very important and sometimes when you make the movie you don't realise it's going to be a great line.

"And sometimes you do know, like in Commando when I hold that guy by his feet and say 'I lied' and drop him. I knew it'd be a funny line."
