He is the hunky Hollywood action-man who is known for death-defying roles in blockbusters like Terminator.
And Arnold Schwarzenegger seemed to have ditched the hair dye for a more natural look, as he showed off his natural grey locks while attending a business forum in Kiev, Ukraine, on Saturday.
The actor, 71, cut a dapper figure in a royal blue suit as he spoke about the event’s theme of Humans And Technology: Transformation Of Opportunities.
Arnold completed his look with a black shirt which he kept unbuttoned at the top, while he accessorized with a stylish watch.
The Terminator star proudly flaunted his salt-and-pepper ‘do and close-cropped beard as he appeared on the panel.
The former governor of California was last seen with dark locks in March, when he attended POLITICO’s Off Message SXSW Festival, in Austin, Texas.
His outing comes after he apologized for ‘misbehaving with women’ one year after the breakout of the #MeToo movement.
‘Looking back, I stepped over the line several times, and I was the first one to say sorry. I feel bad about it, and I apologize,’ he said in an interview published in Men’s Health magazine on Thursday.
Arnold had accusations of groping several women leveled against him just days before he won the recall election to become the governor of California in 2003.
When discussing his treatment of women before #MeToo, he admitted he has regrets: ‘When I became governor, I wanted to make sure that no one, including me, ever makes this mistake.
‘That’s why we took sexual harassment courses, to have a clear understanding, from a legal point of view and also from a regular-behavior point of view, of what is accepted and what is not.’
Despite the fallout from the groping scandal, Schwarzenegger maintains that he has not wavered in his sense of who he is as a man and his relationships with women.
‘I’ve not changed my view (on masculinity). I’m a guy. I would not change my view of who I am. The woman I was originally most in love with was my mother. I respected her, and she was a fantastic woman. I always had respect for women.’
In the interview, Schwarzenegger also added that he regretted calling his political opponents as ‘girlie men’ during a 2004 Republican National Convention.
‘At the time it felt like the right thing to do… I called them girlie men because they weren’t willing to take risks. They were afraid of everything,’ he said.
‘But it was shortsighted. In the long term, it’s better to not say that, because you want to work with them.’
