Sylvester Stallone: 'Rocky' is My Legacy

Sylvester Stallone: 'Rocky' is My Legacy

Sylvester Stallone shows off his huge guns as he chats with GQ in a new interview for the mag’s September issue, on newsstands next week.

Here’s what the 64-year-old actor had to share:

On not getting respect from Hollywood: “I think a lot of it has to do with the way I came into the party… I came in through the service entrance. You know, like at the Oscars, I didn’t have a bow tie on. It had broken. Later I heard people thought I was disrespectful. I woulda tied a shoelace on – something – had I known.”

On what his legacy will be: “The character of Rocky, I’m fused to that. So his ‘never-give-up-ness’ is…he, again, came through the service entrance. He dined with the staff, dined with kings, but at the end of the night he paid the check and left through the service entrance. I’ll always have this blue-collar connection. For every guy, there is an opportunity to be a lot better than he thought he could be. We can’t all be the star of the team, but we can be a star in our life. That’s where you set your goal. And that is attainable, because if I did it, it’s feasible.”

On creating Rocky’s wardrobe himself: “We didn’t have budget for wardrobe. I bought that coat when I was 19 and living in Philadelphia. I bought it at E. J. Korvette for like $32. It was half leather and half something from Korea.”
