Jane Seymour is retracting statements that she made about former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger possibly having more secret children out of wedlock that she originally made. Appearing this past Friday on daytime talk show The View, “I am so beyond sorry and appalled that I found myself even talking on the subject at all,” she said. “You have to understand, I didn’t go out of my way to have this conversation. It was the premiere of my movie which had a very similar theme. That’s why they asked me about it.”
She raised eyebrows when she told CNN that she wasn’t even “remotely surprised” about the news that Schwarzenegger had children out of wedlock. “The moment I heard it, that there was an announcement of their separation…He was obviously jumping the gun before everyone else told the world of the news. From what I gather, I think there will be lots of information coming people’s way. I heard about two more [children] somebody else knows about. I even met someone who knows him well.”
On The View, she took the opportunity to apologize to Maria Shriver, “The way it got all put together is beyond embarrassing and I just feel so, so badly for the Maria and the children because I’ve been through similar kind of stuff. I just, hope that they’ll accept my apology and realize that I do not want [to] in any way exacerbate the pain that that family’s going through. You have to understand, I didn’t go out my to have this conversation, I was, it was the premiere of my movie, which had a very similar theme and that’s why they asked me about it.” Shriver now denies that she has information that Schwarzenegger has more secret children.
