Arnold Schwarzenegger's time as the governor of California didn't just leave the state in financial turmoil -- it cost Arnie a huge chunk of change too!

The Austrian Formerly Known as Governator told a newspaper in his homeland that his stint in Sacramento cost him nearly $200 million as a result of lost revenue from movies and endorsements.

Arnold went on to say that it was all worth it in the end ... not sure Californians would agree.
