Arnold Schwarzenegger's response to frenemy Sylvester Stallone's yacht invite: 'I can get my own'

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone may have cooled down their decades-long rivalry into a stern, manly friendship, but that doesn't mean their competitive spirits have died.

In an interview with PEOPLE, the one and only Terminator discusses his "fantastic" relationship with Stallone and how they differ in their preferred ways to relax.

"Sly calls me: 'Want to come on the yacht?' What, do you think I'm going to ask, 'When can I have dinner?' It's not going to happen," Schwarzenegger told the outlet. "I can get my own yacht. That's not my trip. I can't even relax under those circumstances."

It's no secret that Schwarzenegger and Stallone once, in the latter's own words, "loathed" one another during their action star heydays. Schwarzenegger even went so far to trick Stallone into doing the mother of all turkeys, 1992's Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot. But that's all in the past. Mostly.

"I really admire him. I love him. He's just a different person than me," Schwarzenegger said of his Expendables costar. "He's much more raw, and he's much more vulnerable and in touch with his emotions."

"When he gets mad, he just gets mad," the 76-year-old former governor of California continued. "It's like when you light a fuse — his goes right away. 'Boom!' Mine goes, 'Shhh.' It takes two days to get to the actual boom. It makes him good in acting, because he feels things immediately."

And when it comes to relaxing, well, Schwarzenegger would just rather not.

"I don't plan a day off...to go on vacation to Europe or to go on a boat like most of my friends do," he admitted. "I can relax at home. I can relax in my office when I work. Or I'll go to the USC Schwarzenegger Institute and hang out with the students."

No wonder Schwarzenegger was, in Stallone's opinion, the "superior" action star. While Sly's taking time out on his yacht, Arnie doesn't even believe in days off.
