Arnold Schwarzenegger says it took seven or eight years before he found out that he had fathered a child with his housekeeper.
It wasn't until the boy "started looking like me, that's when I kind of got it. I put things together," the action star and former California governor, 65, told 60 Minutes on Sunday.
Though Mildred Baena continued working in the family household and Schwarzenegger quietly began to provide financial support to her and their son Joseph, Schwarzenegger deliberately delayed revealing his secret to his wife Maria Shriver and their four children.
"It was very difficult, strange, bizarre," said Schwarzenegger. "I just said to myself, 'Okay, I'm going to put this away.' "

Arnold Schwarzenegger says his affair with his family's housekeeper wasn't the first time he cheated on Maria Shriver.
The action star and former California governor admits in his new autobiography to a "hot affair" with actress Brigitte Nielsen while they filmed Red Sonja in 1985 when he and Shriver were living together, Time magazine reports.
Schwarzenegger, now 65, never thought the relationship with Nielsen was serious and that the fling only convinced him to marry Shriver, he writes in Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story, according to Time.

Opening up for the first time since his marriage collapsed with the revelation that he fathered a child with a housekeeper, Arnold Schwarzenegger acknowledges how badly he hurt wife Maria Shriver and their family.
Promoting his upcoming book on Sunday night's 60 Minutes on CBS, the action star was asked by correspondent Lesley Sthal, "Was this just the most unbelievable act of betrayal to Maria?"
"I think it was the stupidest thing I've done in the whole relationship," Schwarzenegger, 65, replies. "It was terrible. I inflicted tremendous pain on Maria and unbelievable pain on the kids."

More than a year after Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed he fathered a child after an extramarital affair with his family's housekeeper, the Expendables actor is telling his side of the story.
In the Schwarzenegger's new autobiography, Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story, he recounts the moment he admitted to then-wife Maria Shriver his relationship with Mildred Baena, the Daily News reports.
On Jan. 4, 2011, the day after Schwarzenegger, 65, left California's governor office, Schwarzenegger confessed in a therapy session.

Unlike its predecessor, The Expendables 2 gave me what I wanted almost immediately: impressive explosions, a frying pan used as a deadly weapon and an airborne motorcycle crashing into a helicopter.
In a sequel that doesn't take itself too seriously, Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his band of muscle-bound misfits are ordered by the mysterious Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) to break into an explosive-rigged safe, which should be a cakewalk. However, after a member of the group is killed by the villainous – wait for it – Vilain (delightfully played by a preening Jean-Claude Van Damme), the gang sets out for revenge, joined for the first time by a butt-kicking female (Chinese actress Yu Nan).

Sylvester Stallone says he is coping with his son's death the best way he knows how: by moving on with his life.
Stallone, appearing on Tuesday's Good Morning America to promote his new movie The Expendables 2, opened up about his son Sage's death for the first time since the 36-year-old's body was found in Los Angeles last month.
"It's very, very tough," said Stallone. "It's a horrible situation, but time hopefully will heal, and you try to get through it, but it's just something that's a reality of life."

Here's what Arnold Schwarzenegger's been up to this summer: partying, lifting weights and Tweeting.
While he's been posting to Twitter for some time, the former governor of California only earlier this week began using Instagram, and he's making the most of it.
"Am I doing it right?" he posted on Tuesday, sharing a photo of him smiling and picking up a kangaroo.
The Expendables 2 star met the marsupial over the weekend at Hollywood talent agent Michael Kives's house, which also played host to an alligator and possible new couple Katy Perry and John Mayer.

There are reboots and there are remakes. The difference is subtle – and probably entirely semantic – but key. Reboots give beloved franchises new energy. (Think: Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy.) Remakes are ill-conceived, often cynical attempts to cash in on a film that worked before.
Total Recall is a remake.
Instead of a fun, wild trip to Mars, like in the 1990 original starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, this Recall – starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel – is set right here on Earth – though a dystopian version that's left much of the planet uninhabitable after world wars. What remains are the upper class United Federation of Britain and the depressing, rainy, blue-collar Colony (a.k.a. Australia).

He arrived as a kindergartner in 1999. And on Friday, Patrick Schwarzenegger graduated from the Brentwood School in Los Angeles – joyful, a little bit flabbergasted, and ready for the next phase of his life.
"Just graduated high school!! So crazy. Can't believe this is all over," Schwarzenegger, 18, the son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, wrote on Twitter.
He also posted a photo of himself posing with his mom. "Been a crazy ride but I'm finally graduated," he wrote.

Looks like Patrick Schwarzenegger is a mini Terminator.
A day after suffering cuts and bruises in a skiing accident, Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger's 18-year-old son returned to the slopes in in Sun Valley, Idaho, on Sunday, apparently no worse for wear.
"Appreciate all the messages, love all you," he wrote on Twitter. "I'm actually feeling really good today, and I even went skiing again today. Thanks again!!"
