Arnold Schwarzenegger was surprised by how “cut” Linda Hamilton was on the set of “Terminator 2.”

Schwarzenegger recalled that Hamilton looked like “a bodybuilder but except miniature.”

Hamilton said she had “fierce pride” over her physique.

When Linda Hamilton reprised her role as future resistance fighter Sarah Connor in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” she worked out heavily to give the hero a shredded physique, since she was meant to be preparing for the impending robot apocalypse.

But Hamilton got in such good shape that she surprised her costar, Arnold Schwarzenegger, when he turned up to start filming the critically acclaimed sequel.

Schwarzenegger opened up about seeing Hamilton for the first time before shooting James Cameron’s second “Terminator” movie in his new Netflix docuseries, “Arnold.”

The actor said: “A few days before we start shooting, Jim Cameron says to me, ‘Let’s all get together and have a nice dinner.’ Linda comes in and she takes her sweater off and I’m looking at her arms. Veins on the biceps, and then triceps. Everything was like a bodybuilder but except miniature. “

“I said, ‘I can’t believe that son of a bitch is fucking more cut than me,'” Schwarzenegger added.

Hamilton, who also appears in the docuseries, explained how she wanted to show Schwarzenegger her new look, saying: “I do remember the fierce pride that I had to show to Arnold.”

But talking about the first “Terminator” movie, Hamilton admitted that she wasn’t initially impressed by the script and that she had doubts about it.

“It was truly just another job. I didn’t think that it was particularly greater than over scripts that I’d read. I mean, really clueless,” she said. “It was very low budget and we were all rather new at it. I definitely had my doubts.”

Although Hamilton was skeptical about Schwarzenegger as an actor, the actor was swayed when she saw him in action.

Hamilton added: “By our snotty definition, Arnold was a poser. A bodybuilder pretending to be an actor. But because I was curious, I went and stood off the sidelines watching Arnold, and I bought it. The physicality and the stiffness, and all of the things that he was implementing. I was like, ‘OK, this might work.'”

“Arnold” is now streaming on Netflix.
