Clint Eastwood and Arnold Schwarzenegger have been friends for decades, and the “Terminator” star demonstrated they’re still close by sharing a photo of the pair together on vacation.
On Monday, the former California governor, 72, took to Instagram, where he posted a photo of himself and Eastwood, 89, on a mountaintop while skiing together.
“Name a more iconic duo,” Schwarzenegger quipped in the caption. “I’ll wait.”
The stars have reportedly been close since the 1990s, and Schwarzenegger told The Hollywood Reporter that he views Eastwood’s career as a roadmap for his own.
“In the future I have to adapt my roles to my age,” he said. “Clint Eastwood also has done it in the same way. Extreme fighting or shooting is not possible anymore. I want to be more encouraged as an actor and I believe that I can manage this challenge. I am like a sponge, which is absorbing all the knowledge and always be willing to learn all new things.”
During Schwarzenegger’s tenure as governor of California, he appointed Eastwood and then-brother-in-law Bobby Shriver to the state parks commission — and later fired them both due to a disagreement over tolls.
Eastwood, however, took the whole thing in stride. “I talked to [Shriver] the day we were not reappointed, or as Donald Trump would say, ‘You’re fired,'” Eastwood said in a 2008 interview with the Los Angeles Times. “So we laughed about it, and I said, ‘Me? But you’re his brother-in-law!’ and he said, ‘But you’re his friend and longtime mentor!'”
