Arnold Schwarzenegger once worried his mother but for an unlikely reason. We know him today for being an inspiration, who never fails to create content or entertain us in new ways. He is in the top 10 ranking of the most searched people on Google in 2023. But even today the actor digs up memories of his younger times and his life experiences, serious and funny ones.

Lovingly called the Austrian Oak, the actor started his journey from humble beginnings and grew as a bodybuilder before penetrating into the entertainment industry and showing off his lighter side. He gives a lot of credit to how he was raised, but in the process, he also had some funny incidents.

The FUBAR actor is an idol of fitness, decades after winning his bodybuilding championships. But his parents did not always understand his goals growing up and were rather worried. In the Netflix documentary about him, he revealed that his mother wondered why his room did not have photos of women like his other friends did. “Where did I go wrong?” she sobbed regularly. Apparently, his room was filled with posters of bodybuilders, posing with their bulked-up bodies.

It worried his mother so much that she took him to a doctor. The doctor assured him that it was perfectly normal for a boy his age to have gym posters in his room and that he did it just to get some inspiration. She wanted to make sure he was straight, which we now know he is. This was back in Austria, where he grew up and began developing an interest in fitness and pursued his career regardless of the hurdles.
