5 of 10: Actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is No. 5 on on the list of least trusted personalities in the United States, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, whose results were released in August 2011. He ties with hip hop star Kanye West.

About 55 percent of people rated both men below average in terms of being someone they trust.

In May 2011, Arnold Schwarzenegger and wife of 25 years Maria Shriver announced that they had called it quits. It was later revealed that Schwarzenegger had fathered a son with the couple's former housekeeper, Mildred Patricia Baena, who was said to have retired the previous January. The actor admitted he was unfaithful but did not offer details.

Baena and her son, who as of June 2011 is 13, later appeared in a Hello! magazine article, alongside a photo, which shows the boy bearing a resemblance to Schwarzenegger.

Schwarzenegger and Shriver announced their separation in May 2011, and Shriver has hired a divorce lawyer according to People magazine.
