Arnold Schwarzenegger likes comic parts

January 7th, 2013

Arnold Schwarzenegger loves playing comedy roles.

The musclebound star is best known for his powerhouse roles in action films such as 'Terminator 2' and 'Commando', but he also has a natural gift for comic timing.

He said: ''For me, my roles always rely on humour. Of course, humour is something you can work hard at, but I have naturally in life that humour. I had it since I was seven. Writers and directors have seen that in me and it plays really well to the audience.''

Arnold, 65, returned to acting in 2011 after seven years in office as Governor of California, and has recently signed up for 'Triplets', a sequel to his 1988 comedy with Danny DeVito, 'Twins'.

He added to FHM magazine: ''I'm excited about this sequel and I'm excited for the other movies I have coming up. There will be more comedy coming because that is always a part of me.

''I think the only movie that came the closest to having the comedy and the drama and action was 'True Lies' because there were really funny moments that made people laugh and there were also very intense moments.''
