Now the actor’s health is not threatened, so you can joke.
At the end of last week, Arnold Schwarzenegger on his Twitter page said that he had to undergo heart surgery to replace the aortic valve. Discussing this news on Reddit, one of the users jokingly wrote that before the operation, one of the doctors had to say to the actor the famous phrase from “Terminator 2”: “Come with me if you want to live.” This comment did not pass by Schwarzenegger, who wrote in response:
Thanks to the team at the Cleveland Clinic, I have a new aortic valve to go along with my new pulmonary valve from my last surgery. I feel fantastic and have already been walking the streets of Cleveland enjoying your amazing statues. Thank you to every doc and nurse on my team! pic.twitter.com/hmIbsEMHtA

It is worth explaining that Schwarzenegger has a heart defect from birth. In 1997, the actor had to replace the aortic valve, and in 2018 he underwent urgent heart surgery due to the unsuccessful installation of a new valve. Fortunately, now 73-year-old Schwarzenegger is fine and he will continue to act in films. So, in the near future he will appear in the yet unnamed series by Nick Santor, who previously worked on “Lie to Me” and “Scorpio”. In addition, in 2021, Schwarzenegger will appear in the title role in the action movie “Kung Fury 2”.
