The illegitimate son of Schwarzenegger became the star of the cover of Men’s Health
24-year-old Joseph Baena, son of actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mildred Patricia Baena, became the star of the famous men’s magazine Men’s Health.
Joseph, who recently started filming the new film Lava, has given his first candid interview about his life.
The young man was born from a secret relationship between Schwarzenegger and his housekeeper when the actor was still married to Maria Shriver.
Arnold’s marriage eventually fell apart, but the actor spoke about his son shortly after he left the governor of California.
However, how this news affected Joseph – he never told. He admitted that in 2011 his mother took him out of school, and from that day, his life changed.
“I was in the eighth grade—fifth or sixth period. And I get called out of class to leave. And my mom’s there, and she’s like, ‘We gotta go -everyone is finding out about you and who your father is. ”
The young man said that at first, he realized that he did not need to do the same thing as his father: bodybuilding and filming to become closer to him, but, ironically, he became seriously interested in fitness and began a career in movies.
“I don’t have to get into acting or bodybuilding. I’m very motivated and driven. I’m happy about my relationship with my dad. But I’m happier that I am finding joy in what I’m doing and that I’m doing exactly what I’ve always dreamed about.”
He said that he was embarrassed to ask Iron Arnold for advice at first, but further, they began to go to the gym together. But at the same time, Joseph knows that Schwarzenegger will not help him “breakthrough” in Hollywood.
“My dad is old-school; he doesn’t believe in handouts. He believes hard work pays off, and so do I,”
Recall that Arnold Schwarzenegger had four children in his marriage to Maria Shriver: daughters Christina and Katherine and sons Patrick and Christopher.
