Sylvester Stallone became one of Hollywood's highest paid actors, usually playing monosyllablic, antisociety, underdog heroes. While Stallone has attempted to extend his range into film comedies and drama, his real box office success continues in action films.
- Born in the charity ward of a hospital in the New York ghetto of Hell's Kitchen. At his birth, the doctor's forceps accidentally severed a nerve in his cheek, leaving him with his trademark droopy mouth.
- Oddly, 1994 was one of the few years he was not nominated for an acting Razzie Award, even though he had appeared in both _Cliffhanger (1993)_ (qv) and _Demolition Man (1993)_ (qv), which had been nominated, with "Cliffhanger" receiving a nomination for Worst Screenplay, which Stallone had written himself.
- Has a total of five children: 'Sage Stallone' (qv) and 'Seargeoh Stallone' (qv) with first wife 'Sasha Czack' (qv) and 'Sophia Rose Stallone' (qv), 'Sistine Rose Stallone' (qv) and Scarlet Stallone with third wife 'Jennifer Flavin' (qv).
- Was 'Joel Schumacher' (qv)'s second choice to play Mr. Freeze in _Batman & Robin (1997)_ (qv).
- Stallone claims to have been able to bench press 385-400 lbs (174.6-181.4 kg) and squat 500 lbs (226.8 kg) in his prime. While in a bench pressing contest with former Mr Olympia 'Franco Columbu' (qv), he severely tore his pectoral muscle and needed over 160 stitches on it. This is why one half of his chest is more veiny than the other.
- Supported Republican candidate 'Arnold Schwarzenegger' (qv) in his re- election bid for Governor of California in 2006, and donated $15,000 to his campaign.
- A lifelong Republican, he is one of President 'George W. Bush' (qv)'s two favorite actors. The other is fellow action hero and conservative Republican 'Chuck Norris' (qv). Both men attended Bush's inauguration as President in 2001.
