Arnold Schwarzenegger and Other Famous Affairs With the Boss

Arnold Schwarzenegger According to a 2011 CareerBuilder Office Romance Survey, close to 40 percent of workers say that they have dated someone they have worked with over the course of their career and 10 percent have done so over the past year.

While 65 percent of those surveyed said they aren't keeping their workplace romance a secret, many others (particularly those whose office romance is also an extramarital affair) try to keep things on the QT but are frequently found out.

Here are 10 celebrities and famous politicians who were outed for an affair with a subordinate or co-worker.

1. Arnold Schwarzenegger

Schwarzenegger just admitted to fathering a child with household staff member, Mildred Patricia Baena. As a result, Maria Shriver now holds the title of "Terminator" -- of their marriage, that is.

2. Jude Law

Law was discovered cheating with his kids' babysitter, Daisy Wright, in 2005, while he was engaged to Sienna Miller. In 2010 the couple got back together. Hopefully, Law has made alternative child-care arrangements.

3. David Letterman

Letterman admitted to having affairs with several Late Show staffers after a CBS news producer threatened to expose him unless he forked over $2M. It's not clear how many staffers Letterman had affairs with, but let's just say it would make a great Top 10 list.

4. Tiki Barber

Barber dumped his pregnant wife in 2010 for 23-year-old NBC intern, Traci Lynn Johnson. The ex-Giants superstar turned Today Show correspondent found himself in the middle of a media circus that was better than any Superbowl half-time show on record.

5. Mark Souder

The eight-term Indiana representative resigned in 2010 after admitting to an affair with a female aide, Tracy Jackson, who worked in his district office. Good to know Souder was a politician known for his support of traditional family values. Whoops!

6. Bill Clinton

President Clinton lied about his relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky in 1998 and then later admitted to the affair once the threat of DNA evidence on Lewinsky's clothing was uncovered. Sometimes it pays to hold off on the dry cleaning.

7. John Edwards

Edwards admitted to an affair with 42-year-old campaign aide Rielle Hunter in 2008 while his wife Elizabeth Edwards battled cancer. It later was revealed that Edwards fathered a child with Hunter.

8. Brad Pitt & 9. Angelina Jolie

Pitt and Jolie met while filming "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" in 2004. Jennifer Aniston filed for divorce the following year. Seven years and six kids later, Brad and Angelina appear to still be together despite rampant reports of them splitting up.

10. Ethan Hawke

Hawke hooked up with 28-year-old Ryan Shawhughes while married to Uma Thurman. At the time, Shawhuges was working as the couple's nanny. The couple's divorce was finalized in 2005 and Hawke later had a child with Shawhughes. At least this time around he won't have to pay for a babysitter.

The list could go on and on. Whom would you add?

Just checked a few of your comments. Have to tell you, you people are sick in the head.
It's no wonder you elected the punk in the first place, then give him a second term.
In his first term he did nothing about the illegals but jump in bed with La Raza and the union bosses.
And was dumb enough to give him a second term............He cut in half a convicted murderers sentence because his Mexican friend in office was the father.............Look at the deficit he left, why because he bended over for unions and La Raza and special interest groups.

Should have to take a test like the DMV in order to vote.

Hollywood, San Francisco, West Hollywood, Calif. ~ why would this surprise anyone.

Why do you think Hollywood dislike's Sarah Palin. .. Could it be because she's been with the same man since high school...............Maybe it's because she decided to have a down-syndrome baby. Funny how popular Sherry on the view is. Could it be because she admitted on the show that she had 3 abortions in one year, (hard to believe but true) ............Arnold, what a joke and imbecile he is ~ just look at what he picked to have sex with. ... Hollywood does not have enough respect for the mother or father of their children to use protection. ~ Next thing you will hear is Maria has Aids.

This country needs Sarah Palin as president in the worst way............If Obama gets a second term...forget about it!

You think his first term bad, just wait because he will not have to again answer to voters in his second term.

Obama is so in bed with Hollywood, Union bosses, La Raza it's disgusting.

Sarah Palin and Herman Cain or Allen West as her Vice President ~ 2012..........Palin is the only truly honest one of the whole bunch..............Romney is also honest, I believe.

People better wake up before it's to late, believe me when I tell you.

Maria deserves credit for behaving in such a dignified manner. But she should also be the first to know that it is a possibility her husband lives in infidelity because she grew up around Kennedys!!!!!!! They are the Master of infidelity so although that does not justify rotten behaviour, she should have been on guard.

welcome milord!


Now after so many years I understand my wife blaming me for not being a boss anywhere I have worked and at the same time not being unhappy for that. She speaks English with an accent and kept saying to me: YOU ARE NOT SEXESFULL AT YOUR WORK !

It's definitely not Republican or Democrat situation.....It’s nothing but a ghastly betrayal. He has deceived her to the highest level: in her home, allegedly in her bed with one of their employees. “Come on now”, how more low could someone get. Could you imaging the hurt and embarrassment she is going through. What an asinine buffoon he is.

BUT::: The LAW says if you did not tell before the child reached the age of 2 you dont' have to pay.
