Arnold Schwarzenegger seems set on working his way back into Maria Shriver's life.
In Tuesday's edition of the German newspaper, Bild, the actor and former California governor admitted that he's still in love with his estranged wife, who filed for divorce in July 2011 after Schwarzenegger's highly publicized cheating scandal.
"We're not fighting any war," Schwarzenegger is quoted as saying. "I still hope for reconciliation; I still love Maria."
