Arnold Schwarzenegger is "taking a break" from his newly resuscitated film career.
As Vanity Fair put it this morning, this is one instance in which a politician is probably not using “spend more time with my family” in a euphemistic sense.
The ex-California Governor officially put his Hollywood comeback on hold as he braces for a costly divorce and the emotional fallout from revelations that he had an affair and child with a former housekeeper, Mildred Patricia Baena.
The former Terminator star told his talent agency to postpone all his movie projects that are currently under way or being negotiated until further notice.
"Gov. Schwarzenegger is focusing on personal matters and is not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines," the statement said.
Instead of another film, the actor could be starring in a big-money divorce from Maria Shriver in a case that will stand out even in Los Angeles.
Shriver, the Kennedy heiress and former network TV anchor, stands to cash in BIG TIME financially, according to prominent divorce attorneys.
