Collateral Damage

Schwarzenegger is treated for ''T3'' injury. The 55-year-old waited until the shoot was finished before undergoing surgery on his damaged shoulder

The Terminator may not be as indestructible as he once was, but he can still handle a lot of pain with cyborg-like stoicism. Arnold Schwarzenegger tore the rotator cuff in his left shoulder last fall while shooting ''Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines,'' but Reuters reports that he waited until Wednesday, long after the shoot was over, to undergo surgery to repair it.

The 55-year-old actor was treated at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica and released the next day ''feeling great and in very good spirits,'' his publicist said. ''I'm feeling great. I am very fortunate to have had such fantastic surgeons at St. John's work on my shoulder,'' Ah-nuld said in a statement. He'll be wearing a sling for the next three to four weeks, but he'll be back in the public eye the whole time, on a multi-state tour of his Inner-City Games Foundation. ''T3'' comes to theaters on July 2.
