Austrian-American actor and bodybuilder, Arnold Schwarzenegger, says he 'terminates outdated myths about protein, strength, and performance' in the upcoming vegan documentary - Game Changers.

The Hollywood heavyweight, who recently said he felt 'starstruck' when meeting with environmentalist Greta Thunberg, posted a trailer of the high-anticipated film to his 17.4 million Instagram followers.

'A real man eats meat'

"I ate a lot of meat. They show these commercials - 'steak, that's what a man eats' - selling the idea that a real man eats meat," Schwarzenegger says.

"But you've got to understand - that's marketing. That's not based on reality"

Back in 2017, the star took to social media to discuss the impact of animal agriculture on greenhouse gas emissions, urging his followers to 'cut down on meat'.

"We have to reduce our greenhouse gases because we're killing seven million people a year because of our pollution. We can do better than that," he said.

Vegan Documentary

Game Changers, directed by Oscar-winner Louie Psihoyos and executive produced by Oscar-winner James Cameron, 'documents the explosive rise of plant-based eating in professional sports, mixing real-time, groundbreaking science with cinematic stories of struggle and triumph'.

"The film features some of the strongest, fastest and toughest athletes on the planet - and it's backed by them too - with additional EPs including Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton, top-ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic, and nine-time NBA All-Star Chris Paul," says the film's description.

Game Changers will be available in theatres across the world from September 16.
