LOS ANGELES (AP) — Arnold Schwarzenegger says he “stepped over the line several times” with women.
In an interview released Tuesday in Men’s Health , the actor and former Republican governor of California says he was the “first one to say sorry.” Schwarzenegger says he feels bad about it and apologies.
Schwarzenegger was accused of sexual misconduct when he ran for governor in 2003 and he denied the allegations. He says that’s why there were sexual harassment courses when he became governor to make sure no one, including himself, made that mistake.
Schwarzenegger says calling political opponents “girlie men” was shortsighted even though he improvised it at the time.
