Video: Arnold Schwarzenegger's Once-Secret Son Recreates Iconic 'Terminator 2' Scene
To paraphrase Tolstoy, all happy families are alike, and each family with a once-secret love child keeps making headlines in its own way.
In a short clip that is sort of soul-crushingly sad despite its high production values, Arnold Schwarzenegger's son Joseph Baena has recreated his father's famous "Bad to the Bone" scene from Terminator 2. The actor-turned-Governator fathered the child with the family's former housekeeper Mildred Baena and then kept his son's existence secret for 14 years while Mildred Baena continued to work for the family, until news of the affair broke in 2011.
The resemblance between Schwarzenegger and his son, now 18, is apparent in the video, which, according to The Wrap, was directed by Baena's friend Ben Hess.
