Klitschko, Schwarzenegger trade poses
Usually when we’re talking about topless photos ending up on Twitter, there’s a degree of lasciviousness — or at least utter embarrassment — involved.
But in the case of Wladimir Klitschko and Arnold Schwarzenegger, it’s just kind of weird.
It all started on Thursday, when the Ukrainian heavyweight boxer Klitschko tweeted a picture of himself posing as Schwarzenegger next to a photo of Arnold in his younger, Mr. Universe days. In the tweet, the 37-year-old Klitschko writes, “Trying to catch u since I'm 12.”
Not to be outdone, Schwarzenegger responded Sunday with a shirtless, muscle-bound picture of his own, next to a Klitschko promo poster. At 66, the former California governor isn’t Mr. Universe anymore, but I’ve got to say, he looks better than I’d have expected:
Klitschko's next fight is Oct. 5 against Alexander Povetkin in Moscow. Schwarzenegger is currently busy filming the Expendables 3. But it’s good to see they’re finding time to begin a friendship.
It seems Klitschko has a fan in the Governator, and it appears the feeling is mutual. And if we know anything about Schwarzenegger, it’s that being his buddy is certainly preferable to pissing him off ( NSFW language):
