The actor absolutely kills it not only when he is playing a robotic mercenary, but also in general with his charm. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2018 met up with Jay Leno for an interview for CNBC Make It. However, this was no ordinary interview because instead of sitting in a studio, they would be sitting in a tank. Schwarzenegger, owing to his years in the Austrian army, knew his way around military equipment. And as evident by his purchase, driving around the tank was one of his favorites. The actor had the M47 Patton, which he revealed was developed by the United States during the Korean War. Schwarzenegger, along with the host, proceeded to trample in a limousine.

Apart from his many talents, looking at a giant tank fully capable of ruining anyone and anything and calling it adorable does not receive much recognition. While he may have ruined a perfectly good limousine worth millions for no good reason, Schwarzenegger often puts his tan to good use by driving kids who do well in school around in it.
