Arnold Schwarzenegger believes there is no greater "iconic duo" than him and Clint Eastwood. 

The 72-year-old posted a snap of himself and 89-year-old fellow film legend, on Instagram on Monday morning, December 30, enjoying a day out on the slopes at an undisclosed location. Getting into social media lingo, the 'Terminator' star boasted in the caption, "Name a more iconic duo. I'll wait."

If the photo itself was not enough to break the internet and send fans into a frenzy, the actor's innate sense of humor definitely set social media ablaze. 

In the photo, both men were smilingly posed for the snap, dressed in hefty snow gear, with ski poles in hand. Schwarzenegger decided to end the year with a much-deserved vacation after a busy Christmas and who better to have by his side than his longtime friend and film director, Clint Eastwood.

During the time he was Governor of California, Schwarzenegger even awarded Eastwood with the first-ever California Hall of Fame award in 2006. 

Eastwood seemed to be in good spirits even as his latest film 'Richard Jewell' was only able to rake in just $5million in its opening weekend due to backlash caused by a controversy brought up earlier in the month.

The movie was based on the true story of Jewell, the hero-turned-prime suspect in Centennial Olympic Park bombing in 1996. It traced the events that transpired for Jewell following his life-saving actions and his treatment by the press when he became the FBI's top suspect. In the film released on December 13, director Eastwood portrayed the real-life character of Kathy Scruggs - a reporter for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, played by actress Olivia Wilde - as someone who traded sex with an FBI agent in exchange for the bombing suspect's identity.

Kevin G. Riley, the present editor for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, slammed the portrayal, labeling it as "shocking, untrue and an obvious Hollywood trope."
