Sylvester Stallone, known as one of the greatest action movie actors of all time, has been in the entertainment industry for several decades.
With his immense fame and fortune, he managed to befriend many beautiful and successful women in the industry.
One such incident involves his co-star Sharon Stone while filming The Specialist, in which Stallone made her drink his special reserve, Black Death Vodka, to shoot a shower scene with her.
Initially, Sharon Stone was hesitant about the scene, causing an altercation on set. However, Stallone was determined to shoot the scene, which led to him bringing out his special reserve and pissing them both off.
The Specialist proved to be a box office hit, grossing over $170 million worldwide. However, it was poorly rated by critics.
Stallone’s most successful role is as Rocky Balboa in the Rocky franchise, which has grossed over $2 billion worldwide. Despite this, Stallone only earned a small fraction of that amount due to his deal with United Artists, which was heavily one-sided in favor of the company.
Nonetheless, Stallone’s creation of the Rocky character and his role in the franchise left an indelible mark on the entertainment industry. The franchise has won numerous awards, including Oscars and Golden Globes.
