[Complete List]


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.

  • Listed as one of the top heroes of all time by the American film Institute (AFI) on 2003, he listed seventh behind 'Gregory Peck' (qv), 'Harrison Ford (I)' (qv), 'Sean Connery' (qv), 'Humphrey Bogart' (qv), 'Gary Cooper (I)' (qv) and 'Jodie Foster' (qv).
  • Stallone has never recaptured the critical success he won initially after _Rocky (1976)_ (qv), when 'Roger Ebert' (qv) said he could be the next 'Marlon Brando' (qv). He has been nominated a record 30 times for the Golden Raspberry Awards, usually in the "Worst Actor" category, and has won 10 times. The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation awarded him a special "Worst Actor of the Century" award in 2000.
  • Born on the same day as President 'George W. Bush' (qv) and 'Fred Dryer (I)' (qv).
  • Turned down 'Christopher Reeve' (qv)'s role in _Superman (1978)_ (qv), 'Jon Voight' (qv)'s role in _Coming Home (1978)_ (qv), 'Eddie Murphy (I)' (qv)'s role in _Beverly Hills Cop (1984)_ (qv), 'Harrison Ford (I)' (qv)'s role in _Witness (1985)_ (qv), 'Bruce Willis' (qv)'s roles in _Die Hard (1988)_ (qv) and _Pulp Fiction (1994)_ (qv), 'John Travolta' (qv)'s role in _Face/Off (1997)_ (qv), 'Samuel L. Jackson' (qv)'s role in _Rules of Engagement (2000)_ (qv), and 'Kurt Russell (I)' (qv)'s role in _Death Proof (2007)_ (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.
  • Did all of his own singing in _Rhinestone (1984)_ (qv).
  • Second son 'Seargeoh Stallone' (qv) (b. 1979) is autistic.
  • Was said to have only $106 in his bank account at the time the _Rocky (1976)_ (qv) project was given the green light by producer 'Irwin Winkler' (qv).
