On Tuesday evening, "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited Arnold Schwarzenegger to sit down for a candid and emotional face to face conversation.
Fifteen months since his wife Maria Shriver filed for divorce, the 65-year-old actor and author opened up about the repercussions stemming from episodes of marital infidelity:
"It’s my fault. There is no one else to blame for. I wouldn't even begin to start pointing the finger at anybody. Because the reality of it is, is that I created it," admitted the former governor of California. "I created my career and all of those kind of things, and the relationship, and all of this. But I also screwed up badly. And I take the full blame for it."
On the day that his illegitimate son Joseph Baena turns 15 years old, Schwarzenegger takes full responsibility for an affair with his family's longtime housekeeper, Mildred Patricia Baena, that left his personal life shattered:
"It makes no difference what was going through my mind at that time. It doesn’t clean up the mess. It doesn’t soften the blow to my family," says the youngest ever Mr. Olympia winner. "What I've done is just about the stupidest thing that any human being can do."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as the star of such films as "Total Recall" and "The Terminator" shared personal details of his private life, revealing emotional perspective like he's never done before.
