Arnold Schwarzenegger: "When you shoot you must not blink"

When we met Arnold Schwarzenegger to put his portrait on the cover of our July issue, he spoke more about his role in Terminator. Exclusive maintenance.

When in 1984, spelled Terminator , SF maline built around a time loop and a robot killer, no one can imagine that the film of James Cameron ( Titanic, Avatar ...) is the starting point of a billionaire saga .And the starting point of the great acting career of Arnold Schwarzenegger . " Hercules , who had embodied my idol bodybuilder Reg Park or Conan , my first big role, are movies that are done primarily with his muscles," says the actor sitting on the bench of a suite of London West Hollywood Hotel last April.

"To play Terminator my body is important, but it's my game that is important because playing a machine is a challenge.What happens in front of you, your face should betray no joy or sadness." The actor gives a concrete example of what this unusual character implies: "When you shoot you must not blink." "You do not look like a frightened child every time you fire," says Jason Taylor who plays John Connor in the new movie. "Do not blink is one of the main difficulties in a shooting scene and Arnold is unbeatable at this game."

But when you play  Terminator it goes even further, says Schwarzenegger. "You never have to look at what you're doing, you have to load your weapon without even taking a look at it and never be awkward." There are dozens of rules to keep in mind at all times. makes the role fascinating and so different from all others. "

He knows this role well since he re-wrote it in Terminator 2: The Last Judgment (1992) still by James Cameron and then inTerminator 3: The Uplift of Machines (2003) by Jonathan Mostow. In 2009 came out Terminator: Renaissance , without Arnold this time, which perhaps explains why the fifth part of the saga seems to snub his predecessor. When Sarah Connor ( Emilia Clarke ) says inTerminator Genisys : "If the past can be changed, the future can be changed too", we can read it as a reference to the fourth film whose action takes place in the future. This again illustrates the twisted charm of the time loop at the heart of the franchise.

"When the first Terminator was released , no one could imagine that it would be one of Time Magazine's 10 films of the year, and no one could imagine that the Terminator would include the list of the 100 most memorable heroes of the year. ' American Film Institute , as well as the list of 100 villains - which is unique,' says Schwarzenegger to demonstrate the importance of the character and defend his status in the history of cinema. When he adds: "Nobody would have thought that I'll be back would become the most famous replica of the history of the cinema", one is at first tempted to contradict it (and "I am your father", and "Talkin to Me?"), But we change our minds wisely

"It was a really hard shoot and the other actors had to work a lot on their physical condition. I respect them for that. But for me it's natural, I did it all my life. "

Whether he's talking about his sports career or his political career, Arnold Schwarzenegger seems completely doubtful: "That's the way I say I'll be back in Terminator that made it a memorable replica," says the actor. mechanical way of pronouncing the words, as James Cameron said, spoken by someone else, they would not have the same resonance Humphrey Bogart has his replicas, Clint Eastwood has his own ... And that's because they have said it in their own way that they have gone down to posterity. " Bogart, Eastwood, Schwarzi ... Another story of American cinema.

With his confidence and his will made of the same metal as the skeleton of a Terminator, Schwarzi is fully committed to Terminator Genisys: "I had to train hard for this new movie, because even though it's understandable that the Terminator's skin and muscles are getting old, the machine inside does not move, so I had to the same volume as the 1984 Movie Terminator. " He also confronts the latter in a computer-generated scene called to stay in the annals of the most twisted tricks invented by Hollywood writers. "I raised the cast to take 10 kg of extra muscle, but that's not a problem, when you have control of your body you can do that," says the 67-year-old man, before adding , magnanimous: "It was a really trying shoot and the other actors had to work a lot on their physical condition, and I respect them for that.

It is also with enthusiasm that he has won for Terminator . "When we considered a new installment in the series, Arnold is the first person I called David Ellison, a young movie star producer (and son of Oracle billionaire boss Larry Ellison)." He responded immediately by proposing that we see each other. I asked him when, and he said, 'Eight o'clock tomorrow morning.' "Is this exchange true, or the result of clever storytelling to stir up enthusiasm and mask endless negotiations between lawyers? this anecdote is like the newTerminator  : The film buff in you is sometimes reserved but the fan of pop culture galvanized by each waterfall and each punch line.

Jewelry: Sometimes it’s a guy thing. When celebrities like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and Joe Manganiello want to tap into their inner (and outer) bad-ass, they look to Australia-based designer Anthony Troiano aka AJT, best known for his hand crafted, oversized sterling silver skull rings with appropriately cool-meets-creepy ruby eyes.

HE is Melbourne’s ring maker to the superstars crafting custom-made bands for Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lenny Kravitz, and Tommy Lee.

Anthony Troiano’s jewellery making business has gone mega-platinum since rocker Lee, of Motley Crue, pictured top right, bought a lion ring, which led to an order from singer Adam Lambert, bottom right, then Schwarzenegger, pictured with Troiano, right.


Other celebrity wearers include Kravitz and Sons Of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam.

Troiano says actor Ruby Rose and supermodel Cara Delevingne have placed orders for lion rings.

He told Confidential: “I’m covering all genres — movie stars, rock stars and models. Each ring is made to a specific fit. It’s not an off the shelf production line.”

His prices range from a basic $700 ring to $10,000 for diamond-encrusted styles.

While he caters for celebrity clients overseas, Troiano says Australian men have been slower to adopt the trend.

Jewellery designer to the stars Anthony Troiano speaks to City Times about his passion.

MELBOURNE-BASED JEWELLERY designer Anthony Troiano, who counts Motley Crue's Tommy Lee, Adam Lambert and Cara Delevingne among his celebrity patrons, tells City Times he ventured into designing in 2013 to fulfil a personal desire for a particular style of ring.

"I have always loved jewellery, especially large rings which were hard to find. I wanted an extremely large lion ring, which I looked all over the world for and could not find anything big enough, so I decided to make one myself! I began researching techniques on making silver jewellery and wax carving, and I practiced carving my own waxes and oxidizing, buffing and polishing my rings."

Troiano's creativity paid off handsomely when guitarist Scott Holiday from the US band Rival Sons spotted his huge lion ring on Instagram. "He fell in love with it and ordered one right away, now he never takes it off! The doors to Hollywood opened and celebrities such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Adam Lambert, Joe Manganiello, Tommy Lee, Lenny Kravitz, plus many more wanted to wear my rings. They love the fact that the designs are so big and bold, and that they are statement pieces."


Schwarzenegger, who is currently making waves with his return to the role of the world's most famous cyborg, the T-800 in Terminator Genisys, has been wearing Troiano's exclusive Terminator Skull ring to premieres of the film the world over.

"I customise the piece of jewellery to the wearer and their personality. I knew Arnold Schwarzenegger loved huge Skull rings as he is a 'larger than life' personality so I custom-made him four Skull rings, all of which were 130 grams of solid silver and had 11mm ruby eyes. I'd noticed that I hadn't seen Arnold ever wearing a Terminator Skull ring, and I asked him if he would like me to make him one - to which he said yes right away and I was commissioned to make a one-of-a-kind Terminator Skull ring for the release of the Terminator Genisys movie. It took around three months to create the ring, a replica of the T-800 Terminator from the movie with the inscription, 'Arnold Schwarzenegger TERMINATOR Limited Edition 1 of 1' on the band."

Troiano says he is particularly fond of motifs like skulls, lion heads, Julius Caesar, King Tutankhamun and Zeus for his designs. "These are all symbols of strength and power. I have always been fascinated with history and loved seeing statues of these figures in museums and art galleries. That inspired me to create designs no one had made before."


Given that so many celebs are taking a fancy to his designs, does he have any special plans for the future?

"My ultimate goal is to develop the brand internationally with the help of the celebrities who currently wear my pieces, and build a global client base. Watches and apparel may also be on the cards for the brand in the future."

Dubai is in his sights too.

"I have been to Dubai, it is one of my favourite places to visit in the world. I was lucky enough to stay in the Burj Al Arab two years ago and cannot wait to come back to visit. I would love to market my designs in Dubai; I think it is the perfect place to do so." For more info on Anthony's designs, check out
