North Hollywood, CA — Recalling his days as one of Hollywood´s most popular action heroes, Governor Schwarzenegger says a weekend accident won´t stop him from riding motorcycles.
He says as an actor he had to sign contracts covering possible injuries from stunts. As the governor put it today, “I did all those things anyway. I never played by the rules.”
The governor received 15 stitches in his lip after he and his 12-year-old son Patrick were involved in the accident yesterday near their Los Angeles home. Both were wearing helmets.
Schwarzenegger appeared today at a health center for women and children in North Hollywood. He proclaimed himself “very lucky.” The left side of the governor´s upper lip was swelled and puffy but didn´t affect his speech or appear to cause much pain.
He said doctors have advised him to avoid attending events and speaking for at least three days.
