It's been a tumultuous few years for Terminator Genisys star Arnold Schwarzenegger, who in 2011 admitted to fathering a lovechild with his housekeeper before a messy divorce from his wife, Maria Shriver. But an interview on Howard Stern's Sirius XM show Wednesday may have earned him back some fans.

In the surprisingly candid interview, Schwarzenegger admitted his split from Shriver was one of the biggest regrets in his life.

"Without any doubt," he said. "Not only failure, but you feel like, 'I'm to blame for it. It was me that screwed up.'"

He also said going to couples therapy with Shriver was "bullshit" and the "biggest mistake of [his] life."

"He said more crap and more nonsense. It was absolutely counterproductive to our future relationship… I don't have to go through anyone to have to explain to me anything... I apologized to Maria. I apologized to the kids," said Schwarzenegger.

Schwarzenegger's openness had fans on social media showing their support.

"Wow... crazy to say, Arnold Schwarzenegger on @HowardStern is actually kinda inspirational," one tweeted. Another posted, "@HowardStern Your interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger was absolutely fantastic made me love him even more. You're the best! #howardstern."

But while the interview seems to have gained Schwarzenegger some fans, it also proved some are still holding his transgressions against him.

"Arnold Schwarzenegger sounded 'normal' on @sternshow until he started discussing his divorce. #delusional @HowardStern," another Twitter user said.

Guess you can't win 'em all.
