Arnold Schwarzenegger has a few regrets in life. In a new interview with "60 Minutes" the former Republican governor of California discussed the scandal that led to his divorce from longtime wife Maria Shriver.
"I think it was the stupidest thing I've done in the whole relationship. It was terrible. I inflicted tremendous pain on Maria and unbelievable pain on the kids," he said.
Arnold has been attempting to revive his career and his reputation by getting back into the spotlight in Hollywood. He has a new autobiography coming out in October and earlier this year he starred in "The Expendables 2" with other major '80s action stars including Chuck Norris. The interview with "60 Minutes" will air this Sunday.
Arnold isn't the only celebrity living with big regrets. Let's take a look at Hollywood's elite who have dealt with failure.
When Chris put his hands on Rihanna back in 2009 not only did the singer face legal charges but his abusive actions also had an effect on his music career. Radio stations stopped playing his music, his sponsors dropped him, and no one in the music industry wanted anything to do with him.
He clearly had big regrets over the incident and apologized to Rihanna with a song called "Cry No More (Rihanna Apology Song)."
Mariah skyrocketed to fame in the early '90s with her incredible talent and the help of Sony music exec Tommy Mottola. Three years after becoming a sensation the two were married despite the seasoned music veteran being twenty years Mariah's senior.
After their divorce in 1997 Mariah wrote numerous songs about the emotional abuse she endured during her marriage and discussed in interviews her regrets. "If I could go back again, I wouldn't do it," she said.
TV actor Kelsey has recently admitted he wishes he would have been honest about his affair when he was still married to "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" reality star Camille.
"It was just ill advised. It was the wrong decision and I should have come home from England when I first met Kayte and just said, 'Listen I've met somebody and this hasn't been working for a long time.' I regret not doing that," he said on "Anderson Live" recently.
Camille's struggles since her divorce from Kelsey have been documented on the reality show.
