“I remember when I had my open-heart surgery, my third one… I was really freaking out, and I woke up all of a sudden and the doctor was standing in front of me, and saying ‘I’m so sorry, but unlike what we planned, a non-invasive surgery… we made a mistake and poked through the heart wall, and there was internal bleeding, and we had to open you up to save your life”.

The actor opened up about the first thing after the surgery he wanted was to recover as soon as possible as he had to start filming Terminator: Drak Fate. Schwarzenegger knew that he would only be allowed to start filming after getting healthy enough. Terminator: Dark Fate was one of the hit sci-fi movies of that time and fans really enjoyed the action-packed thriller.
