James Cameron is known to be very detail-oriented and strict when it comes to making his movies.

Cameron recently did an interview revealing a shocking detail on how he created “Terminator 2: Judgement Day”.

He said, “I remember sitting there once, high on E, writing notes for ‘Terminator’, and I was struck by Sting’s song, that ‘I hope the Russians love their children too’. And I thought, ‘You know what? The idea of a nuclear war is just so antithetical to life itself’. That’s where the kid came from.”

“Terminator 2: Judgement Day” had reinvented how action movies are made today. This Saturday is the 30th anniversary of this classic’s release.
