Arnold Schwarzenegger announced Thursday he’s putting his showbiz career on hold, amid massive upheaval of his personal life and public image. The ex-guv had planned to return to movies, lining up a couple “Terminator” sequels and another drama, “Cry Macho,” in recent weeks. But that was before the scandal broke of the child he fathered by his housekeeper; wife Maria Shriver, meanwhile, has reportedly hired a prominent divorce attorney. A statement from his office said he’s now “focusing on personal matters and is not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines.”
