Arnold is remarkable. There is really something there. I know that sounds silly, but his journey in life and what it has taken … is an amazing American success story. He is a massive star. He is stop-in-the-street famous in a way that is fun to be a part of. And he’s very shrewd, he’s extremely witty. Very funny. Very, very funny.”
