Arnold Schwarzenegger's bluntness in real life mirrors that of his Terminator character.

The 74-year-old actor has always been very vocal about his beliefs.

So, no one was really surprised when he criticized those who refused to wear masks.

Now, in a more recent interview, Arnold is defending his earlier comments. 

The seven-time Mr. Olympia did not mince his words when talking about people who deliberately choose to disregard health protocols.

The actor specifically referred to those who outright denied safety regulations as a schmucks.

If it's any consolation to those who felt offended, the actor did acknowledge that his comments were "harsh".

Just don't expect him to change his mind anytime soon. 

The former bodybuilder added that he sees freedom and being an American as meaning that you need to help and care for others.

Only time will tell if Schwarzenegger will receive more backlash for his latest comments.
