So it was a big day at Reddit as Arnold Schwarzenegger stopped in to do an Ask Me Anything session. His written intro declared, “I want to hear some crazy questions this time–don’t be soft reddit,” which instantly endeared the online community to Schwarzenegger once again. The guy was cool, as always, but there was some bonus coolness that was particularly fun to watch.
Schwarzenegger used the AMA as an excuse to introduce the video above, where the Governator went undercover in a Gold’s Gym in Venice, California and tried to pass as a physical fitness instructor named Howard. Some people weren’t fooled for a second. Others took a while to figure out that there was something big happening. In any case, there was much hilarity ensuing, and you should watch it all. (We should try to be cool ourselves and note that Arnold was doing all this in support of the After School All-Stars program.)
Also very cool: a Reddit user asked, “Of all the things you are famous for, which are you most proud of? Which are you least proud of?”–and Schwarzenegger gave an actual honest response:
I’m most proud that I was smart enough to immigrate to the greatest country in the world where I could accomplish all of my dreams. I’m least proud of the mistakes I made that caused my family pain and split us up.
A lot of celebs doing an AMA would’ve just ignored the second part of that question. That’s some straight shooting. Sadly, Arnold wouldn’t reveal what Bud Light has planned as their big announcement for the Super Bowl. Oh, well. He’s the former Governor of California, so the guy’s used to state secrets.
