The former Gov. of California had specific criteria for his mistresses … he liked plain Janes who wouldn’t take the spotlight away from him.

Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s fantasy girl wasn’t a busty porn star or a supermodel — he wanted his mistresses to be “unattractive” by Hollywood standards. Arnold, 63, dropped a bombshell on his wife of 25 years Maria Shriver when he told her he had an affair for more than two decades and a love child with their housekeeper Mildred “Patty” Baena. But why would Arnold bed women that were no where near as beautiful as his loyal wife Maria? Because he didn’t want them to “steal the spotlight” from him.

“He sees himself as the dominant, beautiful one,” reveals a dossier by jailed former LA private investigator Anthony Pellicano. “The physical is most important to him and he does not want to be upstaged or lose the spotlight in company of a strikingly beautiful woman.”

But Arnold’s “type” surprised many people in his inner circle. Reportedly while filming his 1990 hit Total Recall, he would fly his mistress Gigi Goyette to the set in Mexico despite the fact that beautiful extras and fans were throwing themselves at Arnold.

“[Gigi] confided that Schwarzenegger enjoys sex with plain women,” a source in the dossier reveals. “Because they tend to demonstrate more admiration, adoration and excitement over his body.”
