Arnold Schwarzenegger is back, and proving he's got brains and brawn

He’s famous for playing muscled-up action heroes, but Arnold Schwarzenegger tells us he plans to put that behind him for more "complex roles", starting with his latest film "Sabotage". Our Los Angeles correspondent Valerie Defert sat down with the Terminator star to talk about his 45-year Hollywood career, putting politics behind him and proving he’s got brains, not just brawn.

Plus: the Argentinean capital's nickname might be "the Paris of the southern hemisphere" but it's always been tango, not ballet, which has taken centre stage. We find out about a new initiative hoping to change that.

We also check out the latest colourful and quirky offerings from French duo Pierre et Gilles, known for their racy images of celebrities that meld photography with painting, as a new exhibition of their work opens in Paris.
