Sylvester Stallone Biography
Sylvester Enzio Stallone real name Michael Sylvester Gardenzio Stallone was born on July 6, 1946, he is an American actor, director, screenwriter, and producer.
After his beginnings as a struggling actor for a number of years upon arriving to New York City in 1969 and later Hollywood in 1974, he finally started getting noticed as an actor for his co-starring role as Stanley Rosiello in The Lords of Flatbush.
Sylvester Stallone was mostly receiving gradual work as an extra or side character in films with a sizeable budget until he achieved his greatest critical and commercial success as an actor, starting in 1976 with his self-created role as the boxer Rocky Balboa, in the first film of the successful and highly acclaimed Rocky series. In the films, Rocky is portrayed as an underdog fighter that does battle with numerous brutal opponents, and wins the world heavyweight championship twice.
The last two films in the series are Creed and Creed 2, that serve as spin-off films focusing on Adonis Creed, the son of the ill-fated boxer Apollo Creed, whom the long retired Rocky is a mentor to. Reprising the role brought Stallone high praise from critics and peers and saw Sylvester receive his first Golden Globe award for Creed, as well as a third Oscar nomination, having been first nominated for the same role 40 years prior.
Stallone had similar box-office success, portraying the PTSD plagued soldier John Rambo in the five Rambo films and as mercenary Barney Ross in the three The Expendables films. He wrote or co-wrote most of the films in his three biggest franchises, and directed many of them as well. In 1977, Stallone was nominated for two Academy Awards for Rocky, for Best Original Screenplay and Best Actor. Only Charlie Chaplin and Orson Welles have received these two nominations for the same film in Academy Award history.
Stallone’s film Rocky was inducted into the National Film Registry, and had its props placed in the Smithsonian Museum. His use of the front entrance to the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the Rocky series led the area to be nicknamed the Rocky Steps, and Philadelphia has a statue of his Rocky character placed permanently near the museum. It was announced on December 7, 2010 that he would be voted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in the non-participant category.
Known for physically demanding roles and his willingness to do the majority of his own stunts, Stallone has suffered numerous injuries during his acting career. During the filming of Rocky IV, he told Dolph Lundgren to punch him as hard as he can in the chest. He later said, Stallone ended up in intensive care at St. John’s Hospital for four days. While filming a fight scene with Steve Austin for The Expendables, he broke his neck, which required the insertion of a metal plate. During the filming of Escape to Victory, he broke a finger trying to save a penalty kick from Pelé.
Sylvester Stallone is a popular and well known figure around the world. His films are classics even to this day and owning memorabilia that he has officially signed would not only be a great investment it would be something to treasure for many years.
