(DCWatchdog.com) – Hollywood megastar and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has declared that there is no heaven or hell and no afterlife, at least not in the way Christians believe.
75-year-old Schwarzenegger discussed “What’s in the Future for Us” with another Hollywood actor, Danny DeVito, 78, for Interview Magazine.

The “Terminator” made it clear he thought physical death was the termination of all life for living creatures and that anybody who claims there was an afterlife was a “f—ing liar.”
In his conversation with DeVito, the former Republican governor recounted how radio host Howard Stern had asked him about what he believed happened when humans died.
“Nothing. You’re six feet under. Anyone that tells you something else is a f—ing liar,” Schwarzenegger recalled replying.
“I said, ‘We don’t know what happens with the soul and all this spiritual stuff that I’m not an expert in, but I know that the body as we see each other now, we will never see each other again like that. Except in some fantasy,’” he elaborated.
The seven-time winner of the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding title added he wasn’t as “comfortable with death” as people who believed in the afterlife.
“When people talk about, ‘I will see them again in heaven,’ it sounds so good, but the reality is that we won’t see each other again after we’re gone. That’s the sad part. I know people feel comfortable with death, but I don’t,” Schwarzenegger stated.
“Because I will f—ing miss the s— out of everything. To sit with you here, that will one day be gone?” he said. “And to have fun and to go to the gym and to pump up, to ride my bike on the beach, to travel around, to see interesting things all over the world. What the f—?” he told DeVito.
The star actor revealed his views on death and heaven changed in the past 20 years as he lost about 15 friends from the time when he was an active bodybuilder.
In another recent interview for a three-part Netflix documentary, “Arnold,” Schwarzenegger revealed how he admitted to his then-wife Maria Shriver, that he had a child with their housekeeper, Mildred Baena.
