Arnold Schwarzenegger would like to see life imitate art, or at least imitate his new movie, the sci-fi thriller "The 6th Day," which opens Nov. 17. The storyline deals with cloning, causing the action hero, whose latest vehicles have been a little sluggish at the box office, to tell PEOPLE that duplicating himself would be the perfect solution to keeping up with his busy life with wife, NBC news correspondent Maria Shriver, and their four children. "I'd love to be cloned," PEOPLE quotes the star, 53, as saying. "As a matter of fact, one of me can play golf, the other one can take care of the kids and my wife, the third can do some acting. Perfect!"
