- Among those who admonished Arnold not to run was Gov. Jesse "The Mouth" Ventura. Schwarzenegger and Ventura filmed the movie "Predator" together and have been pals for more than a decade. "Continue with your movie career, Arnold -- don't get involved in (politics). It won't be worth it to you," Ventura said Sunday on "Meet the Press." Ventura also defended some inflammatory remarks he made in a recent Playboy magazine interview, in which he called organized religion "a crutch for weak-minded people" and said men groping women at the Tailhook conference was "no big deal." He stood behind his statements on "Meet the Press."
