Here is an actor who has never won any acting awards and for good reason. Here's a guy who got into the movie business on his impressive physique and winning smile. Here's a person that pretty much anyone with even the slightest bit of film knowledge is aware of. Here is also someone who is the butt of many good-natured jokes and the subject of millions of sorta-funny, sorta-terrible impressions (Seriously, everyone has an Arnie impression, no matter how bad).
However, he is a widely beloved figure (In film- I'm not going to touch his politics), a cultural phenomenon, and his box office numbers have been incredible over the years (Until now, but I'll get into that later). Where does the affection come from and how did he get to be such a living legend?
|A one man Arnie. |
(I'm so sorry, that was terrible)
|Warning: May become intoxicated by the testosterone in this gif.|
|A striking resemblance.|
|Suddenly, the Slap Chop sounds like a great deal.|
Not his best moment, but it makes me laugh.
