When he gained his citizenship, Schwarzenegger was a budding action star ready to break out. His first decade in the United States would see him become one of the biggest movie stars of all time.

After years of consistent film work, Schwarzenegger’s acting career took a backseat to his political endeavors in the beginning of the 21st century.

From 2003 to 2011, Schwarzenegger served the state of California as its 38th governor.
