What's going on with Arnold?  He seems unhappy.  In any event, do you agree with him that there is no heaven or hell (either now or in the future)? 

Arnold Schwarzenegger says heaven is 'some fantasy': 'That's the sad part'
'FUBAR' star says he's 'not an expert' in 'spiritual stuff'

Arnold Schwarzenegger isn't sold on the idea of an afterlife.

Schwarzenegger and his pal, Danny DeVito, got deep about what happens after you die during a conversation for Interview magazine. The "FUBAR" actor maintained that heaven is "some fantasy."

"It reminds me of Howard Sternís question to me," Schwarzenegger recalled. "ĎTell me, governor, what happens to us when we die?í I said, ĎNothing. Youíre six feet under. Anyone that tells you something else is a f--king liar.í"

"I said, ĎWe donít know what happens with the soul and all this spiritual stuff that Iím not an expert in, but I know that the body as we see each other now, we will never see each other again like that.í"

DeVito chimed in with, "We deteriorate."

"Except in some fantasy," Schwarzenegger responded. "When people talk about, ĎI will see them again in heaven,í it sounds so good, but the reality is that we wonít see each other again after weíre gone. Thatís the sad part. I know people feel comfortable with death, but I donít."

"Because I will f--king miss the s--- out of everything. To sit with you here, that will one day be gone?" he said. "And to have fun and to go to the gym and to pump up, to ride my bike on the beach, to travel around, to see interesting things all over the world. What the f---?"

"Life! Itís the best!" DeVito responded.

Schwarzenegger grew up in the Catholic Church, and he spoke about his faith as recently as 2021.

"I grew up Catholic, I went to church, went to Catholic school, I learned the Bible and my catechisms," Schwarzenegger said in a YouTube video. "And from those days I remember a phrase that is relevant today: A servantís heart. It means serving something larger than yourself."

He added, "What we need right now from our elected representatives is a public servantís heart. We need public servants that serve something larger than their own power or their own party. We need public servants who will serve higher ideals, the ideals in which this country was founded, the ideals that other countries look up to."

Agree with most.

I disagree that people are lying when they talk about Heaven obviously... or even claim they KNOW what happens after we die. It's a highly emotional thing, people invest years of their lives, time, etc in the concept of an afterlife and a God, so when they say they KNOW, I chalk it up to that... I don't even consider they are lying.

"Thatís the sad part. I know people feel comfortable with death, but I donít."

"Because I will f--king miss the s--- out of everything. To sit with you here, that will one day be gone?"


The good news is no... he won't f--king miss the s--- out of everything. He'll just be dead

Unfortunately for Arnold he's that much closer to the most sobering, gut wrenching revelation in his existence.  Nothing in me relishes that either.

If it makes you feel any better, he's going to die like anyone else, you, me, cows, dogs, horses... He won't know he's dead any more than you will. That's pretty reassuring
