Arnold Schwarzenegger is known for his achievement in bodybuilding. The 75-year-old not only took the sport to a whole new league but came to be defined by it. But keeping Mr. Olympia titles aside, it all boiled down to his swoon-worthy physique. Something that not just made him the greatest bodybuilder of all time, but also made Rachel McAdams do a double-take.

The 44-year-old actress opened up about the best and worst moments of her teenage years as she promoted Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. Often when a celebrity who has been in the spotlight for years opens up about their past, it results in confessions about the cons of the industry. McAdams, however, kept the party alive as she revealed that watching Arnold Schwarzenegger half-naked in Conan the Barbarian made way for a “funny feeling” in her tummy.

The Oscar-winning actress went on to say that the Austrian Oak was her “first celebrity crush” in an interview with POPSUGAR earlier this year. Interestingly, McAdams associates Conan the Barbarian mostly with Conan’s tanned upper half. However, there is one thing about this bold celebrity crush confession that does not sit right.

Conan the Barbarian was released in 1982. While she may be 44 now, McAdams was only four when the movie was released. It does not make sense for a four-year-old to remember Conan for more than anything but the mythical beasts he keeps attracting. Unless she watched it much after its release.

When the Austrian Oak joined the city of stars, he was rarely ever involved in dating scandals. This could have something to do with him sharing a room with Frank Zane. Whatever the case, Schwarzenegger quickly moved into politics and married Maria Shriver. Although she does not belong to Hollywood, Shriver is a celebrity in her own right. It is no secret how the marriage fell apart, but Schwarzenegger was quick to find a new girlfriend.

It is ironic how his most controversial scandal had to do with women, but Schwarzenegger has never even confessed to having a celebrity crush. Looking at his girlfriend, Heather Milligan, it seems like the Austrian Oak prefers someone outside of the film industry. This is probably why there are no records of his celebrity crush.
