Schwarznegger and Klitschko showing affection via Twitter

What are the similarities between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Wladimir Klitschko? They are both powerhouses with a whole lotta muscle!

The two powerhouses went for a friendly head-to-head, or should we say torso-to-torso, showdown on Twitter. Wladimir Klitschko tweeted a picture of himself copying a pose of Schwarznegger in front of a bodybuilding poster of the actor during his younger years. With a big smile on his face for completion, the tweeted picture didn’t go unnoticed by Schwarznegger himself.

The movie star responded to his tweet with a tweet of his own, adding a picture of himself posing in front of one of Klitschko’s earlier boxing posters. While thirty years older and with a bit of extra chest fuzz, 66-year-old Schwarznegger showed off his still well built torso.

Both champions must have had a lot of fun and decided to have a dinner over their online adventure, which of course got Tweeted about as well. Quite some positive PR for both heroes.

Further more, heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko’s looking to be fighting one of the most important boxing matches of the last couple years in a few weeks, when he will be facing the 26-0 Alexander Povetkin. Klitschko’s currently holding a track record of 60-3 is the longest reigning champion in history, holding the IBF, WBO & IBO titles to his name. The one title he is missing is the WBC title, which is currently on his brother’s name, Vitali Klitschko. The two brothers made an agreement not to touch each others titles.

What about Schwarznegger? The ex-bodybuilder, ex-Governor of California and actor can look back at a very succesful career. He has no financial worries and simultaneously is past his prime time and can’t ask for the jackpot when starring in a movie. Yet he is a classic movie hero of many and currently is doing what he loves most.

After his political career came to end he has been more active on the big screen again, featuring in The Expendables 2 The Last Stand. Upcoming movies are:

  • 2013: Escape Plan
  • 2014: Sabotage
  • 2014: The Expendables 3

Besides these, a few more titles have been announced, including The Legend of Conan & a fifth installment of the Terminator series. The Escape Plan is scheduled for release on October 18, where he once again teams up with Sylvester Stalone.
