Arnie and Linda are still the best of friends (Arnold Schwarzenegger/Instagram)

Arnold Schwarzenegger has shared the ultimate Throwback Thursday.

The Hollywood actor brought his Instagram followers on a trip down memory lane after posting a photo of him and his Terminator co-star, Linda Hamilton, in celebration of her 62nd birthday.

Oh the nostalgia.

Arnie, 71, posted a then-and-now photo with the throwback image from their Terminator 2: Judgment Day era and the current photo from the set of their forthcoming reboot of the iconic sci-fi franchise.

Perhaps teasing whats in store from the next Terminator installment, Arnie is seen with his face covered in fake cuts and blood so things arent looking to great for Hollywoods favourite cyborg assassin.

The actor said in the caption: Happy birthday to my dear friend Linda Hamilton. One of my favorite co-stars, a true badass, and a wonderful human being. Im pumped to be back together again.



Fans were thrilled with Arnies cute birthday tribute and had all the feels. One of the actors followers commented: That is an amazing picture. T2 was in the top 5 of my childhood. So good to see you both doing well now.

Another particularly enthusiastic follower added: Omg this just made my life. Im so in love with all the Terminator movies (except for the one you werent in of course) and the series!!

Paying their own tribute to Linda, one fan credited the actress with defining how women should be portrayed in action films.

The Terminator fan said: She completely defined what an action female hero is all about, I remember being a teenager and going to the cinema twice to watch T2 she was the factor that made a already great movie into one of the most memorable movies I ever watched.

Linda played Sarah Connor in two out of the five Terminator movies and will return for the 2019 reboot. James Cameron is also on-board to direct yet again, and recently revealed how the new movie will be different from the previous.

Speaking at a press event in April, James explained: Were developing a new Terminator film. And The Terminator films are all about artificial intelligence. But I would say were looking at it differently than when I wrote the first story in 1982.



That was just your classic technology bad, smart computers bad kind of thing. Nowadays though — its got to be a much more nuanced perspective. So its “Smart computers bad… BUT…” Thats the new motif.
