Sylvester Stallone Was A “Terrible Choice” For “Rocky”

Sylvester Stallone stuck to his guns when he was trying to sell the screenplay for “Rocky,” refusing to give it up unless he was given the title role, even though he says was a “terrible choice.”

    Great interview! I think most people, including myself, associate the real
    Sylvester Stallone’s speech patterns and mannerism with the characters he
    plays, like Rocky and Rambo, that we tend to forget how well spoken he is
    in real life. Seemed he was in full control of his faculties despite his
    age and health problems. May he continue being successful. :)

    He must win an Oscar or atleast get a nomination for his performance in
    Creed. Blimey Sly, that was amazing!!!

    I struggle to understand. Is it so much Botox, including the mouth-moving
    muscles?

    I’ve heard the story before that Stallone, Chaplin and Welles are the only
    people in history to be nominated for writing and starring in the same film
    in the same year, but doesn’t Woody Allen fit that bill for Annie Hall?
    Does anyone know why he’s never included?

    “I just got lucky”..
    Why does every person worth their salt say the same thing?
    NO! You worked hard and got what you deserve.

    I know he probably smells like burnt tanning oil, nair, after shave & roid
    juice. But I still would. (Fucking auto correcting phone!!)

    Stallone – THE most under-rated writer ever… EVER!! Mozart with boxing
    gloves. Just brilliant. “Where’s your hat?”

    Ya know, I could really watch “Rocky” again. So many terrific movies got
    made in the 70’s, I kinda forget about this one.
