9. Arnold Schwarzenegger Paternity Scandal
Arnold Schwarzenegger used to have it all. He was a Hollywood action film icon for a number of years and then he parleyed his skills into politics, eventually becoming the Governor of California. He had a pretty lovely family life too. He was married to Maria Shriver, a member of the influential Kennedy family and they had four children together. Unfortunately, it was never enough for Schwarzenegger.
It turns out that he fathered a child with the family’s homely housekeeper and had lied to his wife about it for over a decade. This ultimately destroyed the marriage; however, this wasn’t the first or the only affair that the former action star had. It looks like he was a pretty unfaithful husband who wasn’t able to just commit to Shriver. If the rise and fall of one of Hollywood’s golden couples doesn’t make for a good movie, nothing will.Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com
