Total Recall

Friday, October 5, 2012

Reporter: Lesley Stahl, CBS 60 Minutes
Producer: Rich Bonin

You have to wonder, what on Earth was Arnold Schwarzenegger thinking?

There he was, one of the most famous men in the world, a massive movie star and the governor of California, with a glamorous political wife in Maria Shriver and a brood of kids.

Then he goes and sleeps with the household help.

And it wasn't a simple one night stand either - the affair resulted in a child - a boy called Joseph who is now 15-years-old.

The scandal broke in May last year and Schwarzenegger hasn't said a word about any of it - until now.

His confessional with Lesley Stahl of the American 60 Minutes program is one of the most compelling interviews we've ever seen.

Schwarzenegger certainly regrets what he's done but is he sorry?

We'll leave that for you to decide.
