In his recent newsletter, the legendary actor revealed that just a week after his hilarious appearance at the Oscars with Danny DeVito, he underwent his latest bout of surgery and, by the end of the same week, was out and about at an environmental event with friend Jane Fonda. He wrote:


“Last Monday, I had surgery to become a little bit more of a machine: I got a pacemaker. I have to tell you, just saying this to all of you goes against so much of my upbringing in Austria, where nobody — ever — talked about medical issues. Everything related to healthcare was kept to yourself.

But I’ve gotten so many messages and emails from people who were born with a bicuspid aortic valve, like me, telling me that talking about my valve replacement surgeries has given them courage and hope to deal with their own.”

The actor went on to explain why the surgery had been necessary at this time. He continued:

“They also advised me that it was time to go through with this because some scar tissue from my previous surgery had made my heartbeat irregular. It had been like that for a few years.”

Later, the actor also revealed that he is about to begin filming Season 2 of his Netflix series FUBAR. He said:


“The same day I talked to my friend, one of my doctors called to tell me that after looking at all of my results and data and knowing I had six weeks until it was time to film FUBAR Season 2, it was time to go for it. The doctors told me they want many more seasons of FUBAR, and this was the best way!”

At 76-years-old, many people would be looking to take it easy and kick back a little in life. Schwarzenegger is not one of those. At the beginning of the month, the actor was doing 16-hour days at the Arnold Sports Festival US, he presented awards at this year’s Oscars, and then traveled to the UK for more events.


Now he is ready to begin filming the new series of FUBAR in April and is setting up an on-screen reunion with Danny DeVito in a new movie with his Twins costar recently teased, saying:

“We’re working on something, a project that we are going to do together, another movie. Arnold and I are good buddies. We met way before Twins, years ago. We get along really well. We’re hoping that sooner than later, we’ll have a nice script to go to work.”
