Pic: Mr Olympia Arnold Schwarzenegger is completely dwarfed by these two giants

The Historical Pics Twitter account has just done us a great service.

Back in 1984, bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger made a sequel to his hit film, Conan the Barbarian, which came out two years earlier. Also in the movie was NBA star, Wilt Chamberlain, and during a break in filming this picture was taken with Arnold’s friend Andre Roussimoff.

The wrestling fans among you will know him better by his stage name, Andre the Giant. Schwarzenegger was 6’2 and won the Mr Olympia bodybuilding competition seven times, but looks like a child next to Chamberlain and Andre.

He might have been a bit smaller than Andre the Giant, but Arnold definitely could have flipped him if it was necessary.
