American actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed a contract to publish a book with Penguin Press. Page Six reports on it.
According to the publication, the forthcoming book of the former bodybuilder will belong to the category of “motivational”. The publisher is now looking for a co-author for Schwarzenegger.
In 2012, the actor published a memoir, “Remember Everything. My Incredibly True Story.” He is also the author of such bodybuilding manuals as “Raising a Bodybuilder,” “Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding,” and others.
Recently, many famous people have been publishing their own books. Earlier, Prince Harry published a scandalous memoir about his life in the Royal Family called “Spare”. In addition, at the end of January, actress and Playboy star Pamela Anderson’s memoirs will come out, in which she talked about her life: excerpts from the book have already been published by several media outlets.
Schwarzenegger was earlier criticized for his controversial act: after visiting the Auschwitz museum (the largest Nazi concentration camp, which became a symbol of the Holocaust in Poland), he left an entry in the guest book and instead of signing his autograph wrote the phrase of his character from the movie “Terminator”, which has become a cult, “I’ll be back”, People reports. This film is the most famous in the filmography of the actor, which made him a global star.
The act of Schwarzenegger, who is ethnically Austrian, caused a mixed reaction among Poles: many considered the phrase inappropriate and even offensive.
The museum commented on the actor’s actions and tried to justify them — the staff said that Schwarzenegger spent little time in the museum and expressed his intention to return for a new tour.
