I didn't want to just be a body building champion. I wanted to be the best body builder of all time.
Well, you know, I'm the forever optimist.
I just use my muscles as a conversation piece, like someone walking a cheetah down 42nd Street.
The secret is contained in a three-part formula I learned in the gym: self-confidence, a positive mental attitude, and honest hard work.
I was striving to be the most muscular man, and it got me into the movies. It got me everything that I have.
I would never exchange my life with anybody else's.
