Arnold Schwarzenegger will rake in almost £75,000 by charging £745 to meet fans for photos in Birmingham

ARNIE Schwarzenegger will earn almost £75,000 posing for snaps and handshakes with 115 UK fans.

Punters are being asked for up to £750 for a “meet and greet” with the actor at the event in Birmingham.


They get two copies of their photo with the Terminator star as well as a seat at a Q&A and a “limited edition access lanyard”.

The cheapest package for Meet Your Heroes is £500 — and Arnie, 73, will collect £73,425 for the day.

Fans of the former California governor, worth £300million, will also have to pay a booking fee plus at least £25 to get into the event next October at the NEC Arena.

The weekend Arnold Sports Festival is billed as a “celebration of health fitness and nutrition”.



It includes spectator sports such as bodybuilding, powerlifting, MMA, boxing, gymnastics and arm-wrestling plus cheerleading.

Visitors can also pay for similar packages to meet 2017’s World’s Strongest Man, Eddie Hall, 32, and Canadian mixed martial arts star Georges St-Pierre, 39.

Arnie — known for catchphrases “I’ll be back” and “Hasta la vista, baby” — has more acting projects lined up, including movies The Legend Of Conan and Triplets plus TV series’ Superhero Kindergarten and Outrider.

Austrian-born Arnie is said to have got £22million for Terminator 3 in 2003 – thought to be one of ­Hollywood’s highest fees.

Arnie separated in 2011 from American journalist wife Maria Shriver, 65, after it emerged he’d had a son 14 years earlier with their housekeeper.
