Schwarzenegger's Mom Sought Gay Cure

offers a Google translation of the interview, in which Schwarzenegger remembers that the doctor calmed her by saying, "As an athlete he surely won't start to smoke or drink."

He said, "As a young boy my room was plastered with photos of bodybuilders. Naked, oiled male bodies. That got my mother so concerned, she asked our family doctor one day to take a look at that. 'Other boys put images of women on their walls, and mine does this!' She actually believed I was gay."
