He has also had a political career; he served two terms as the 38th Governor of California from 2003 until 2011. Schwarzenegger was nicknamed the "Austrian Oak" in his bodybuilding days, "Arnie" during his acting career, and "The Governator" (a portmanteau of "Governor" and "The Terminator" – one of his best-known movie roles) since the start of his political career.
The real-life goblin spider species Predatoroonops schwarzeneggeri is named after Schwarzenegger; every member of the Predatoroonops genus has a name that references Predator, due to the perceived similarity between the spider's mouthparts and the Predator's mandibles. Additionally, one of the two recognised groups in the Predatoroonops genus is also named schwarzeneggeri.
Schwarzenegger as the Terminator, arguably his most famous role.
