Clint Eastwood is 89. Arnold Schwarzenegger is 72. Together, they’re unstoppable.
The two actors were seen hitting the slopes, thanks to Schwarzenegger’s Instagram post.
With the photo, the actor and former governor of California wrote: “Name a more iconic duo. I’ll wait.”
They were even posed the same way, with the same “you got a problem?” look on their face in case anyone wanted to start something up.
We’re lucky if the universe doesn’t implode whenever these two (former) Hollywood juggernauts are seen in one place.
Celebrities weighed in with the appropriate comments about the photo: Rob Lowe said the two were “Mount Rushmore level,” and Jim Belushi just said they were “icons.”
“We need this movie made! Frankly, I’d watch the 2 of you ski together for 2 hours and enjoy it!” wrote @AvikJon.
“Glad these 2 can STILL SKI (at their ages). I’m between them in age, so I know what I’m talking about!” wrote @JamVee.
Seriously, how many of these dynamic duos can the world handle?
Eastwood was Dirty Harry, he was the good guy in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, the title role in Pale Rider and Bronco Billy, the “get off my lawn” guy.
He’s also directed a slew of movies, including ones he starred in as well as either directed or produced, like Space Cowboys, Gran Torino, Unforgiven… the list is impressive.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was of course The Terminator, several times over. No one else can be him.
But he was also in Kindergarten Cop, The Predator, Commando, Total Recall, Conan the Barbarian, Danny DeVito’s twin. Schwarzenegger even flirted with American royalty. In 1986 he married Maria Shriver, a niece of former President John F. Kennedy. But they later divorced after it was revealed that Schwarzenegger had a child with another woman. Oops.
Both have had their share of controversy; most recently, Eastwood was under fire for how his film Richard Jewell, about the Olympic Park bombing, negatively portrayed journalist Kathy Scruggs.
And if you were a California resident between 2003 and 2011, you most likely had something to say about his terms as that state’s governor.
Eastwood spoke to the Associated Press while promoting Richard Jewell, and talked about his potential to be an actor while growing up.
“Well, I did a one-act play once when I was in high school or junior high school, and I swore I would never do that again. I hated the idea. I was a terribly complex young kid, and the last thing I wanted to do is do an extrovert-ish thing like acting.
But then when you get into acting later as an adult, you realize it’s not necessarily an extroverted thing. Introverts make great actors because they have a lot of things they’re holding in. It’s just a question of learning how to get them out into the open.”
