Actor and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger was on “Hannity” tonight to promote his new movie, “Sabotage.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger said it’s “terrific” to be back in movies.

“You kind of work your way up again to the top, and this has been really great because I love to climb,” he said. “You know there’s nothing that is more fun than to climb a mountain, to climb in your career and everything […] I love the challenge.”

Schwarzenegger said the United States is the greatest country in the world, and it has many opportunities to offer.

“The key thing is you’ve got to work your butt off. Don’t ever look for a handout, don’t ever look for a freebie or a shortcut […] Rule number one if you want to be successful is work your butt off.”

Schwarzenegger also discussed politics, saying that both sides must work together as a team to get things done.

“Sabotage” hits theaters nationwide on Friday.
