Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “I’ll be back” from The 1984 terminator. However, according to the actor, director James Cameron had to press him to say it.

What did Arnold Schwarzenegger think of his lineage in “Terminator”?

Speak with The Hollywood Reporter In a portrait about the actor, Schwarzenegger was asked about the legendary catchphrase. The actor said he and director James Cameron had a heated argument about it during filming. Apparently Schwarzenegger wanted to say “I’ll be back” instead of “I’ll be back”.

“I think about it being an accident,” Schwarzenegger said when asked what he thought of the line. “(terminator Director) Jim Cameron and I debated how to say the phrase because I was uncomfortable saying “I will.” I said, “I think it’s stronger to say, ‘I’ll be back.’ “Cameron said, ‘Are you the screenwriter now? It’s just a word. Don’t tell me how to write. I’m not telling you how to act.’ I said, ‘You’re telling me how to act every minute!’ What are you talking about?!'”

Schwarzenegger further noted that Cameron explained to him that the way he said it made the spell so great.

“So he’s like, ‘Arnold, you think that sounds weird.’ That’s not the case. The great thing is that you sound different there than me or Charlie. That’s what it works. So just say it ten times. Say it differently. I’ll keep rolling the camera. Then we pick one,” Schwarzenegger said. “So they built it up and I’m like, ‘(Flatly) I’ll be back … (bright) I’ll be back! … (guttural) I’ll beeee baaaack…’ It sounded stupid.”

The actor went on to joke that now people are constantly asking him to say the line and he has no problem with it.

“The movie is coming out. I’m in Central Park. This guy comes up and says, “Say the line!” … Now, a few days ago, I was skiing in Aspen and the concierge comes up and asks me to say the line,” Schwarzenegger said. “So that’s where it started and that’s where it ended up. it’s wild I’ll be the last one to get complicated and say, “I don’t want to compare myself to my films or use a line from my films.” Hell, Clint Eastwood takes the clothes from his films and that’s all he wears. So why should I worry about using a line?”
