Who is Sylvester Stallone?
Sylvester Enzio Stallone was born in New York City USA on 6 July 1946 – his zodiac sign is Cancer and he holds American nationality. He’s an actor, film director and producer, who’s probably known best for having created the character Rocky Balboa, the star of the movie series “Rocky”.
He was raised in New York City alongside his younger brother Frank Stallone, a musician and an actor, by their mother Jacqueline ‘Jackie’ Stallone who was a dancer and an astrologer, and their father Francesco ‘Frank’ Stallone Sr., who was a beautician and a hairdresser. Sylvester was born with paralysis in several parts of his face because his mother’s obstetricians misused forceps during his birth and damaged nerves. When he was around six years old, the family moved to Washington, D. C. where his mother opened a beauty school as well as the gym, Barbella’s. Sylvester studied at Notre Dame Academy before switching to Lincoln High School, and later to Charlotte Hall Military Academy. Upon matriculating in 1964, he enrolled at Miami Dade College, and then moved to the American College of Switzerland before moving once again to the University of Miami, from which he obtained his Bachelor’s degree.
He launched his acting career with an appearance in the 1970 pornographic movie “The Party at Kitty and Stud’s”, then in 1972, he auditioned for a role in the evergreen movie “The Godfather”, but wasn’t cast. The following years saw him make an appearance in various popular movies, such as “Klute”, “The Prisoner of Second Avenue” and “The Lords of Flatbush”. He became famous worldwide after he wrote and starred in the movie “Rocky”. It took him 20 hours to write the script, which no studios then wanted, however, he eventually agreed to a low price from Robert Chartoff and Irwin Winkler, who also agreed that he could star in it. “Rocky” was nominated for ten Oscars, winning three for Best Film Editing, Best Directing and Best Picture.

He went on to star in various other movies, such as the 1978 sports drama “Paradise Alley”, the 1981 sports war drama “Escape to Victory”, and the action drama “First Blood” in which he played John Rambo. He was very active in the film industry until 2000, after which his fame declined somewhat, however, he returned with the sixth movie in the “Rocky” series entitled “Rocky Balboa”. The year 2010 saw him write, direct and star in the action movie “The Expendables” which also starred Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren and Jet Li, and it grossed around $35 million in its opening weekend. One of his most recent roles has been in the 2019 action movie “Rambo: Last Blood” which took $50 million to make, while it grossed around $91 million worldwide.
To this day, Sylvester has appeared in around 86 movies and TV series, and has won 61 awards of the 113 for which he has been nominated, including three Oscar nominations.
He was married twice before meeting Jennifer. On 28 December 1974, Sylvester exchanged vows with Sasha Czack who gave birth to their son Sage Moonblood Stallone in 1976 (died in 2012) and Seargeoh in 1979, who was born with autism. Sylvester and Sasha divorced on 14 February 1985, and on 15 December of the same year, he married the famous Danish actress and model Brigitte Nielsen; the marriage lasted for two years.
In February 2001, Margie Carr, an exotic dancer, filed a lawsuit against Sylvester claiming that he raped her at a fitness center in Santa Monica on 26 February 2000. It was soon revealed that Margie had sold the story to a supermarket tabloid a month prior, and the case was thus closed. In 2016, it was reported that he was accused of sexually assaulting a 16 year-old girl together with his bodyguard, but his former wife Brigitte claimed that he was with her, and his fellow actor David Athen Mendenhall claimed that the rumors weren’t true, and that it was him who introduced the two. He was accused of another sexual assault in November 2017, but wasn’t charged because of a lack of witnesses.
