In August 2019 Arnold Schwarzenegger suffered a terrible loss when his best friend Franco Columbu passed away suddenly at the age of 78. And, naturally, the actor was devastated by the news, as he would make plain in a tribute message about his long-time buddy on social media. But what Schwarzenegger chose to confess about his relationship with Columbu may well leave you stunned.

And those who have followed Schwarzenegger’s career since his bodybuilding days may well recognize Columbu’s name. You see, Columbu was a bodybuilder, too. He’d first encountered Schwarzenegger in 1965 at a Munich competition, after which the two men joined forces in order to better their lives.
