How to be a great housekeeper in Hollywood
Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is a regular housekeeper for his longtime Hollywood neighbors, including actress Lizzy Caplan.
Schwarzener is one of the few Hollywood celebs who have publicly acknowledged his domestic work.
In a 2009 interview with ABC News, Schwarzenegger explained how he spends his free time, which can include cooking, cleaning, laundry, and babysitting.
“I’ve got to keep my kids happy and clean and tidy,” he said.
“I have to be in my house all the time.
I do everything.
I’m not going anywhere.”
A few weeks later, Schwarzenegger was asked by ABC News’ Diane Sawyer if he spends enough time in the house, to which he replied, “No, I’m very happy with the job.”
He has since said he doesn’t feel “trapped” in his home anymore, and he has a more regular schedule of doing things that are outside of his home.
“We’re not going to have a house that’s just a hotel,” he told Sawyer.
“That’s just not me.”
In another interview, Schwarzenegger told ABC News that he was “surprised” by the negative reaction to the comments made by Caplan, saying, “I’ve never been that concerned with being a housekeeper.”
“I have a very good job,” Schwarzenegger added.
“There’s no problem.
There’s no pressure.”
Schwarzer’s wife, Gisele Bundchen, has since come forward to defend the former governor.
“It’s not true that Arnold Schwarzenegger hates his job,” she said on “Good Morning America.”
“He’s doing it because he loves it.
He does it because his family is going through hard times, and I think that’s what motivates him,” Bundchen continued.
“He’s always been very protective of his family.”
While Schwarzenegger has previously said that he enjoys being a homebody, he has said he loves being in front of the TV and taking a break from his job, which is now over two decades old.
