The former Governator created a scene at a local Walmart in Albuquerque, New Mexico this week where he was shooting on location. It turns out Arnold was less worried about saving money and living better, and more concerned about finding some of his beloved hard-boiled eggs. "Where else would we find healthy snacks at 2?" he tweeted.

His presence created a stir among the people of Walmart even at that late hour. TMZ (which we're sure would never exaggerate about such a thing) said his trip "turned into a full-blown mob scene -- his security team tried in vain to keep the crowd at bay." The store dispatched security to control the overexcited fans. He dropped $300 on warm clothes for his crew, TMZ said.

He tweeted out a picture of him checking out and thanked the employees: "Albuquerque is getting cold, so I bought some warm clothes for my crew today. Thanks to the employees who helped me!"
