For someone who was caught up in one of the biggest, most shocking sex scandals of the last few years, you'd think Arnold Schwarzenegger would want to steer clear of any sex-related talk for the foreseeable future. The "Terminator" star — who admitted in May 2011 that he fathered a son with his family's longtime housekeeper — actually brought up the X-rated subject himself during an interview with Esquire, in which he finished sentences with his own thoughts.
About halfway through the questioning, Schwarzenegger was asked, "When you get older … " — something which could have been answered dozens of innocuous ways. Instead, he responded, "sex may change a bit. When you're 65, it's not exactly the same as when you were 25. But that doesn't mean it's over. It's never over."
With that statement, it would seem like he's bragging about the fact that he still has sex … but with whom? In his memoir Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story, which was released in October, he claimed he wanted to work things out with his long-suffering wife Maria Shriver, noting that after they split — because of his cheating admission — he was still " turned on" by her. But in an interview with "60 Minutes" to promote his book, the former governor said they are still headed for a divorce.
The rest of Schwarzenegger's Esquire interview is a smattering of random tidbits, including the fact he doesn't think people can "learn charisma," he believes we should all strive to be a public servant ("not a party servant"), and his proclamation "I love paying my taxes."

Schwarzenegger, who says that one of his early goals was to become a millionaire, also reveals that when he first came to Hollywood after becoming Mr. Universe, there was pressure on him to change his four-syllable last name. "Early on, they tried to convince me to turn it into Arnold Strong. But eventually the idea became: If someone has a difficult time remembering your name, they will also have a difficult time forgetting it."
