Arnold Schwarzenegger: I would have run for president

Arnold Schwarzenegger would have entered the 2016 presidential race if he could have.

"If I'd been born in America, I would've run," he revealed to Adweek. "Because now? This was a very good time to get in the race."

The Austrian star has been a U.S. citizen since 1983.

The former California governor said he doesn’t love politics.

"I didn't love politics, but I love policy.”

These days, he has been busy with his Hollywood career. He says he carefully chooses the film roles he takes on.

"It has to sound appealing to me, it has to be challenging, it has to be something I can get consumed in," he explained. "It's fun to climb the mountain rather than sit at the top."
