    Jamie Lee Curtis has sent her love to Arnold Schwarzenegger following his recent heart surgery

    The ‘Terminator’ star had a new aortic valve put into his heart over the weekend, and after posting on social media about his operation, his pal Jamie Lee - who starred with him in the 1994 movie ‘True Lies’ - has wished him a speedy recovery


    She wrote on Twitter: “You have a big heart muscle @Schwarzenegger Heal and get back to helping the world one rep at a time! (sic)”

    Arnold, 73, posted about his surgery over the weekend - which came as he previously had a new pulmonary valve fitted in an emergency surgery - when he said he was feeling “fantastic” following the procedure.

    He said: "Thanks to the team at the Cleveland Clinic, I have a new aortic valve to go along with my new pulmonary valve from my last surgery. I feel fantastic and have already been walking the streets of Cleveland enjoying your amazing statues. Thank you to every doc and nurse on my team! (sic)”

    Meanwhile, Arnold opened up about his emergency open-heart surgery in a commencement speech to 2020 graduates.

    The actor used the example of his operation and the recovery he made to start shooting 'Terminator: Dark Fate' just four months later, as an example for graduates about overcoming obstacles during the Covid-19 pandemic and later in life.

    He wrote: "My advice to graduates on overcoming obstacles during coronavirus. Because of coronavirus, you are graduating into a world filled with obstacles, so I wanted you to know that no matter how successful you are, there will always be obstacles. But you can overcome and move toward your vision. Europeans don't talk about medical issues much, we protect them like state secrets. Maybe it's a sign I'm Americanised, but I wanted to share the story of my heart surgery going south four months before 'Terminator'. I hope it gives you motivation in these hard times."

    He added a video, in which he said: "They said they broke through the heart wall, and there was internal bleeding, and I could have died if they didn't open up my sternum and do open-heart surgery."
