Arnold Schwarzenegger related to Robert Downey Jr.’s Oscars speech more than fans realize.

The 76-year-old actor and fellow co-star Sylvester Stallone recently gave a joint interview in an hour-long special TMZ Presents: Arnold & Sly: Rivals, Friends, Icons on FOX.

During the conversation, Arnold talked about his difficult childhood and revealed that he resonated with Robert’s Best Supporting Actor speech for Oppenheimer at Oscars 2024 in which he poked fun at his “terrible childhood.”

“I’d like to thank my terrible childhood and the Academy, in that order,” he had said.

Recalling Robert’s words, Arnold said, “I immediately could relate to that. Because he went through trouble and pain — I don’t know exactly the story. But for him to thank his s—-y upbringing means that it motivated him and kept him going into a different direction rather than staying in the s—-y upbringing.”

The Terminator star also opened up about spending his adolescence days in Austria with his abusive, alcoholic father who was an “angry” war veteran.

“If I would’ve grown up like some people do with all the love in the world, I would’ve never left home. I would’ve stayed in Austria. It’s not the kind of life that would have made me happy. … I think what drove me was I had such a need to create my own world; I had to get out of that misery at home,” he shared.
