Article Arnold Schwarzenegger Height No Obstacle for Pothole Filling in Los Angeles Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California and actor, made a surprise appearance filling potholes in Los Angeles recently. After being approached by a local news station, he spoke about his fascination with the task. "It took me back to the '70s," Schwarzenegger said. The 73 year old wasted no time in getting to work. Despite standing at a staggering 6 foot 2 inches tall, Schwarzenegger said his height was no obstacle. The former governor was more than happy to help and spend some quality time with the residents of Los Angeles. Schwarzenegger's enthusiasm for the task is a reminder of his humble beginnings. Growing up in a small town in Austria, the former governor had to take jobs including bricklaying and tree chopping before he came to America and embarked on his acting career. Los Angeles city council approved $11 million to fix the roads in the city, but the financial input from the famous former governor cannot be measured. Despite his Arnold Schwarzenegger height, the former Governor brought a ray of California sunshine to a task so many overlook.
