The makeup on his face can be discerned and the gruesome strokes, one of which reveals a patch of dull grey on one of his cheek bones - which gives the look of the metal interior. His face has a bunch of fresh scars, although in these images Schwarzenegger is laughing it up and pulling goofy expressions. The actor's sense of humor and jovial mood shows through in these pics. The website sourced the images from Snap Chat.

In a recent interview with ABC News, Schwarzenegger spiced things up by talking about his relationship with the franchise and dissing one of the films in it. The actor expressed his relief ("Thank God"!) at not having been part of Terminator: Salvation. When prodded as to why he was happy about that, the actor laughingly added that "it sucked." The actor also said that the three films that he was in had their own personalities, and he could not pick a favorite.
