Hailing from Austria, former bodybuilding champion Arnold Schwarzenegger is adored by many. One of the reasons for Arnold’s popularity is his accent. Although the bodybuilder-actor has improved his speech dramatically, he can still be tough to crack. Likewise, his long-time rival and friend, Stallone, has a slurred speech (resulting from complications during childbirth) giving him a unique accent.

During a chat on a late-night talk show, Schwarzenegger revealed how he got Sylvester to make a terrible movie. Arnold said that in the 80s, the competition between them was so fierce that it even came down to who killed more people (in movies) and who killed them more creatively.
