Growing up in Austria, Arnold Schwarzenegger was more interested in athletics than school. Though an average student, he stood out for his exuberant personality and impressive soccer skills. Immediately after graduating high school, he fulfilled his required service duty with the Austrian Armed Forces and while there, won the Junior Mr. Europe contest. To compete, he had to go AWOL, which earned him a week in military prison after his triumphant return. At age 20, Schwarzenegger won the title Mr. Universe for the first of four times, allowing him to leave Austria and enroll in English classes at Santa Monica College in California. He continued to body-build for years, training with the likes of Joe Weider and Ric Drasin, and won more and more contests. Wanting to be something more than just a bodybuilder, however, the star-turned-governor earned his degree in International Marketing of Fitness and Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin. From there, he went on to become an international action hero sensation, eventually becoming known for his turn as The Terminator. Today, he is perhaps the only famous actor ever to serve two terms as governor of the State of California, but he plans to return to the big screen in a reprisal of his most celebrated role, The Terminator.
