IT'S hardly going to ingratiate him with his estranged wife, but it may not surprise her: when Arnold Schwarzenegger's scandalous affair hit the headlines, he believed that if his marriage to Maria Shriver broke down, he would find himself a "20-year-old honey".

The admission is part of explosive revelations that detail the former California Governor's reaction to the demise of his 25-year marriage.

His relationship crumbled after Shriver learnt of his secret relationship with his housekeeper and the couple's illegitimate child.

Newsweek reports that the Terminator star allegedly refused to attempt to work at saving the marriage, and when news of the extra-marital affair and lovechild broke, Arnie reportedly told a friend: "I have the money, the power, and the plane, and I will have the friends."

But it is perhaps his apparent refusal to comprehend the gravity of his affair that is most alarming. "I think things will work out OK with Maria, but if they don't, I'm getting me a 20-year-old honey", the 65-year-old is said to have told his neighbour.
