Schwarzenegger - "So never take no for an answer"

The Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger credits his career success with never taking "no" for an answer.

Accepting the Action Hero of a Lifetime accolade at the Jameson Empire Awards on Sunday (March 30), the 66-year-old actor said: ''My advice is never take no for an answer.

''I was told I'd never get into bodybuilding. I was told I'd never make it in the movie business. They said I was too big, they said it wouldn't work with my accent. I never listened to them, and I went on to have a successful career.''

He added: ''So never take no for an answer. So thank you, and I'll be back.''

Schwarzenegger can next be seen in Sabotage as John 'Breacher' Wharton.
