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.”

Maybe he didn’t get any respect from hollywood because he is an a.s.s.h.o.l.e.. went to Brazil to shoot his movie, filmed with a brazilian actress and talke **** about the country.. saying horrible stuff about the people and the country itself. And I’m not even from Brazil.. he is a c u n t!

<3 love Sly !

I will always love Rocky and still have a soft spot for Sly. As far as old guys go, he is still pretty sexy.

@elle: and he started as a p or n actor in a very filty movie. I do not know that because I watched it, but because his biography was shown on television. The parts of that movie shown as proove left nothing to the imagination.
