Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminates Film Comeback; Children Rally Behind Maria Shriver


HOLLYWOOD -- Arnold Schwarzenegger will not resume his acting career as planned because he is dealing with personal issues, his management said.

Schwarzenegger finished his second term as California governor this year and announced he was looking to return to the big screen where he enjoyed starring in blockbusters such as "Terminator" and "True Lies."

However, he has since separated from Maria Shriver, his wife of 25 years, after admitting he fathered a son with a household staffer more than a decade ago.

Schwarzenegger's infidelity made headlines this week and he has since confirmed the story.

E! News said his representatives at Creative Artists Agency announced Thursday Schwarzenegger is now focusing on his family rather than his film career.

The fact that Arnold kept the secret for 14 years, and that Baena is close to the family and was obsessed with Maria Shriver, make this harder to bear.

The former California governor's wife of 25 years struggles to maintain a brave face, her kids seek comfort in oldest sibling Katherine, who frequently acted as a "second parent" while Schwarzenegger was on the campaign trail.

"Katherine is really upset about this and how her mom is right now," the source adds.

"It's tense because the kids need a sounding board just as much as Maria does but it's difficult to go to their mom for questions. Everyone feels really betrayed and embarrassed that it's out in the open. Not for their dad's sake but for Maria."

Older brother Patrick admitted on Tuesday that he was suffering from his family drama. …
