Arnold Schwarzenegger believes Heaven is a 'fantasy', says: 'We won’t see each other again after we’re gone'

Arnold Schwarzenegger recently shared his unfiltered views on heaven, religion, and the afterlife in a one-on-one conversation with his long-time friend and actor Danny DeVito.
The iconic pair, renowned for their collaboration in the 1988 comedy Twins, delved into their personal lives, careers, and beliefs in an interview for Interview Magazine.

Schwarzenegger, now 75, often regarded as a "man of the people" and one of Hollywood's most beloved actors, tackled the topic of the afterlife, a viewpoint sure to spark diverse opinions.

In their insightful conversation, DeVito, known for roles in Matilda and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, queried Schwarzenegger about the future. The Terminator himself didn't hold back, providing his perspective on what transpires after our demise.
In response to Howard Stern's question about the afterlife, Schwarzenegger offered a candid reply, saying, "Tell me, governor, what happens to us when we die?' I said, 'Nothing. You're six feet under. Anyone that tells you something else is a f***ing liar.'" He acknowledged his lack of expertise in spiritual matters but emphasized the certainty of the physical body's absence post-mortem.

Despite acknowledging the discomfort associated with discussing death, the action legend expressed skepticism about the concept of heaven, deeming it a "fantasy." He remarked, "When people talk about, 'I will see them again in heaven,' it sounds so good, but the reality is that we won't see each other again after we're gone. That's the sad part. I know people feel comfortable with death, but I don't."

Having encountered loss in the bodybuilding industry, Schwarzenegger shared his unique perspective on heaven, stating, "To me, heaven is where I put a person who I love dearly, who is kind, who is generous, who made a difference in my life and other people's lives." He explained that he keeps these individuals in a special place in his thoughts, akin to a front row of cherished friends, providing a positive feeling whenever he recalls them.
The revelation from The Terminator star about his views on death is quite surprising, especially considering his previous discussions about his Catholic upbringing.

In a 2021 interview, Schwarzenegger provided insights into his Catholic upbringing, stating, "I was raised Catholic, attending church regularly and even receiving my education in Catholic schools. I delved into the Bible and absorbed the teachings of my catechisms," as expressed in a YouTube video.

Reflecting on his early days, he highlighted a phrase that continues to resonate with him: 'a servant's heart,' symbolizing the act of serving a cause greater than oneself.

Schwarzenegger made these comments while urging elected public servants to embody the religious teachings he received in his youth. He added, "What we need right now from our elected representatives is a public servant’s heart. We need public servants that serve something larger than their own power or their own party. We need public servants who will serve higher ideals, the ideals in which this country was founded, the ideals that other countries look up to."
