Schwarzenegger's whining women
16:30 25 April 2005
Arnold Schwarzenegger has enraged female radio listeners after cracking a joke about women 'bitching and whining'.
The 'Terminator' star landed himself in trouble after telling controversial DJ Howard Stern that he had developed a cure for Pre-Menstrual syndrome.
He said: "If we get rid of the moon, women, whose menstrual cycles are governed by the moon, will not get PMS. They will stop bitching and whining."
The muscle-man star and now governor of California is already facing a sexual harassment legal battle from British TV presenter Anna Richardson.
Richardson, 32, is launching a libel case against Schwarzenegger after he claimed she falsely accused him of groping her to damage his political ambitions.
The case - which could cost the action star more than $1million - dates back to an alleged incident in December 2000 when the host was interviewing the actor.
During the interview, Richardson claimed Schwarzenegger pulled her onto his knee and asked her if her breasts were real, before circling her left nipple with his hand and saying to her: "Yes, they are real."
At the time, a spokesman for the 57-year-old star dismissed the incident, saying: "Arnie is a big flirt, as is Anna. Most presenters know how to handle him and understand he's just flirting."
