It was a major breakthrough for filmmaking and for me," Schwarzenegger shared.

The 72-year-old actor is particularly proud of the fact that Terminator is the only character to be included in both the American Film Institute's list of Top 50 villains (at No. 22) and Top 50 Heroes (at No. 48).

"The idea always was to be the villain but make everyone walk out and say, 'That’s really cool! Can you imagine if you had that kind of a power?’ People find him inspirational in some ways as well as entertaining.'" Arnold confessed.
