In addition to his film career, Schwarzenegger has invested significantly in real estate, amassing valuable portfolios worth tens of millions.
Born in Thal, Austria, Arnold found a love for bodybuilding at the age of 13, after being introduced to it by his football coach (soccer) coach.
Arnold's aim to become a world-renowned bodybuilder, was inspired by the success of previous Mr. Universe winners who ventured into Hollywood.
At 21, Arnold moved to the U.S. with $27,000 in savings (equivalent to $182,000 today) that was earned from bodybuilding competitions and winning Mr. Universe.
He began real estate investments in Hollywood, starting with a plot in Palmdale, and he continued to trade up to larger properties until he became a millionaire by age 25.
Arnold secured his first "Mr. Olympia" title in 1970 and was cast in "Hercules in New York," soon after, which catapulted his career in film.
Republican Party member, Arnold also served as Governor of California from 2003 to 2011. He is currently worth $450 million.
