Arnold Schwarzenegger, 66, is glad he's not seen as being "over the hill" and is thrilled to continue to expand his acting career

Arnold Schwarzenegger is glad he's not an actor who is "over the hill".

The 66-year-old star - who hits the big screen in 'Sabotage' - is delighted his age hasn't prevented him starring in Hollywood blockbusters.

Schwarzenegger says: "I feel very honoured that I'm not looked upon as some old guy who is over the hill. That can happen to actors very quickly."

Although the hunk is best known for his action roles he was cast in comedy 'Triplets', which is the sequel to 1988 film 'Twins', and was set to star alongside Danny DeVito and Eddie Murphy.

Meanwhile, Schwarzenegger will reprise his role as the titular cyborg in 'Terminator: Genesis' after he was forced to step down from participating in the franchise while he was the Governor of California between 2003 - 2011.

He "never thought" he would be asked to be in these productions, especially "unusual" comedy films.

Schwarzenegger told The Sun newspaper: "I never thought that all of the studios would come back and ask me to play these characters again.

"To play the 'Terminator' again, or to ask me to do 'Triplets' with Danny DeVito and Eddie Murphy, is very unusual."

The leader (Schwarzenegger) of an elite DEA task force heads a mission to relieve the drug cartels of $10m, only to find that his team is being picked off one by one. Despite a strong opening, a good supporting cast and an interesting premise, it's let down by plot holes and its own absurdity.
