Arnold Schwarzenegger has spoken of his excitement at returning to the movie business since stepping down as Governor of California in 2010.
The 65-year-old was pictured at the premiere of his new film The Expendables 2, flanked by members of the Royal Marines.
The Terminator star said: "I was very happy to be in the movie business before, I was very happy to be Governor of the great state of California, and I'm very happy now to be back in the movie business."
Arnie added: "That's the great thing about my life - it's like a joyride, going from one thing to the other with great ease, and it makes it fun. It makes life spicy."
The film, written by Sylvester Stallone and directed by Simon West, also stars Bruce Willis, Jet Li, Chuck Norris, Liam Hemsworth and Yu Nan as the first female Expendable.
