Interview: Arnold Schwarzenegger on making Wonders of the Sea and turning 70

With Terminator 2: Judgement Day making its way back into cinemas in a spruced-up 3D edition of James Cameron’s sci-fi classic, it is hard to believe that Arnold Schwarzenegger recently turned 70. Indeed, when we meet at the Cannes Film Festival, just weeks before his birthday in July, the still-muscular Hollywood icon looks at least a decade younger. Tanned, quick-witted and apparently in rude health, he’s the very embodiment of the idea that age is a state of mind.
