Sylvester Stallone Explains Why Doing 'Creed' Was Cathartic

Sylvester Stallone looks dapper while stepping out for lunch at Cafe Roma on Thursday (January 21) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 69-year-old actor recently opened about how the death of his son Sage in 2012 affected his decision to do Creed.

“Every time you can vent emotions that are real, I think that’s very helpful,” Sly told Closer. “Most importantly, I want to respect his memory. I think we did, so it was good.”

Sylvester says “it took a while” to commit to the project. “I really didn’t want to do it — I swear to you. It’s just too painful. It’s rough. There is no closure. There is nothing. The wonderful thing about acting is that it’s a release. I can take some solace in that.”
