“Some information I just keep to myself,” said Arnold Schwarzenegger, in an interview with Lesley Stahl on 60 Minutes interview last night.
The former governor and actor did the interview to promote his new book, Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Story, a memoir from Simon & Schuster that came out today.
In the interview, Schwarznegger talked about his scandal of having had an affair with his housekeeper Mildred Baena and getting her pregnant, at the time that his wife Maria Shriver was pregnant. ”I found out about it kind of seven year or eight years in,” he to Stahl. He said that it didn’t occur to him that the child was his, because she was with another man.
“I have caused enough pain to everyone as it is, if it is my to my, so I don’t want to reawaken and talk about it because its not going to help them and I just want to protect them as much as I can,” said Schwarzenegger to Stahl.
