Arnold's office released the statement today -- claiming the actor has already asked his agent at CAA to discontinue his current film negotiations for the time being.

The statement continues, "Governor Schwarzenegger is focusing on personal matters and is not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines."

According to the statement, this includes Arnold's upcoming film "Cry Macho" -- which he signed on to for a reported $12.5 million.

Arnold having married one of the Kennedy clan joins a prestigious group of adulterers.

Arnold, don't let a little adultery stop you from your work making movies. It did not stop Jack, Ted, Robert, or their famous father from cheating and from doing a little adultery on the side.
All those who are bashing Arnold for this little indiscretion should be ashamed. After all, the Kennedy's are famous for bad behavior and cheating on their wives.

In fact, Maria should be ashamed for taking this tack in their relationship. I suspicion that she is merely moving out because she is no longer first lady of California, and that she should be proud of Arnold for carrying the family tradition.

I think the idea of his career being put on hold had more to do with the sponsors and public. After what he has done these past 14 years, and how he even play the public, who would want to spend the small amount of cash they may have to watch this fake. I was excited when he first left the Governor's office and was going back to acting, I loved his movies. But that was a different Arnold than the one we have now come to know. With this economy why would anyone want to waste their money one someone who treats his own family like s***!!

I won't watch anything he's in now or ever; it's time we quit making excuses for people like this. He doesn't deserve to be paid anything after what he did to his family -- especially $12 million. He deserves to suffer the consequences, all because he couldn't keep it in his pants. It's time we all quit promoting this type of behavior by continuing to allow them to make money off of us. Money speaks volumes.

Sperminator was never "an actor"!

He is a joke to other real actors.

He has a MASSIVE ego, and when he met
Maria it was his lucky break,
she gave him legitimacy and some class,
she was a Kennedy.

Now at 65, he wants to go back
to "acting"in movies.

It seems the best acting he did was in
his marriage...by acting a role of a
good and faithful husband.

In a few months The Tribe will
forgive him and it will be back
to business...after all he did not
insult the Jews...LOL!

He screwed the housekeeper and his wife
at the same time, while he was also
screwing the state of Kalifooornia.

From TreeMileZune: >>ITS JUST SEX!

Its not like he KILLED anyone and looks like he was paying for the kid.

People act like he did the worst thing in the world but when you really look at it, he was just having SEX.<<

Are you a complete imbecile? It was UNPROTECTED sex, which could have KILLED his innocent wife, Maria, and left their innocent children MOTHERLESS!!!

You opening your mouth and blurting out ridiculious stuff could have gotten someone so upset they keel over and die of a heart attack too. Yet they didn't didn't. Get the f*ck over it.

I'm so sick of people whining on TMZ "he could have killed someone" when no one was physically hurt at all.

Same BS people whine about ever time someone gets a simple DUI with no accident or bodily injury.

STUPID ACT OR NOT NO ONE GOT HIV. GET OVER IT.

I remember when the "comments section" on TMZ used to be filled with all kinds of intelligent, funny, witty and interesting comments, and it was fun to read them, but now it is mostly filled with nothing but hateful, bitter, low-life, ignorant judgement. It's like going to the ghetto- all the educated, witty, fair-minded people are gone.

Isn't Maria still on the Board of the Special Olympics? Her recently deceased mother started that. Oh, and her recently deceased father and the Peace Corps. And four children. And let's not forget all the other stuff she has to do with the Arnie creep behaving badly in public.

The ONLY person truly blameworthy is the ex-governor and what he will get will not be macho.

Bleah.

None of the horndog cheating men in the Kennedy family ever put their powerfulcareers on hold, not even after murdering their mistresses. Maria should be used to this behavior. She married a man who is just like her uncles and cousins.

Now it is down to business. Arnold knows he is a cornered rat. He put his career on hold because the more money he makes, the more Maria will take. Kapich? I feel sorry for his kids that have to go to school and face the embarassment of his actions.
