Childhood & Early Life

Michael Sylvester Gardenzio Stallone was born on July 6, 1946, to Frank Stallone and Jacqueline Stallone in New York City. He is of Italian-Russian-French-Jewish descent.
He was born with the lower side of his face paralyzed as the obstetricians tried to use a pair of forceps to pull him out of his mother’s womb. This seriously severed a nerve that caused permanent deformity in the lower parts of his lip, tongue and chin.

He earned his first role in a soft-core pornography film, ‘The Party at Kitty and Stud’s’, in 1970. Later in life, Stallone claimed that he did the film out of desperation, because he needed the money. The same year, he appeared in the movie, ‘Rebel’, which made him a national star.
He also starred in the off-Broadway stage piece, ‘Score’, which ran for 23 performances in 1971. The same was later made into a film by Radley Metzger. He also appeared in Woody Allen’s ‘Bananas’ and the thriller ‘Klute’ as an extra.
In 1975, he was seen in the Jack Lemmon film, ‘The Prisoner of Second Avenue’ and he also played supporting roles in the films, ‘Farewell, My Lovely’, ‘Capone’ and ‘Death Race 2000’.
The year 1976 brought with it a lot of promise and hope for Stallone as he starred in his first breakthrough film, ‘Rocky’, an action-drama feature, for which he also wrote the script.
The movie is considered one of his most commercially successful movies till date.
After swooning in the success of ‘Rocky’, he made his directorial debut in 1978 for the film, ‘Paradise Alley’.
The same year, he played a role in the film, ‘F.I.S.T’, a film based on the life of James Hoffa.
In 1979, he wrote and starred in the sequel of ‘Rocky’ titled ‘Rocky II’, which also went on to become a sleeper hit. Two years later, he starred in ‘Escape to Victory’ and ‘Nighthawks’.
After the success of ‘Rocky’, he launched another action venture, starring as the Vietnam War veteran, ‘John Rambo’ in the film, ‘First Blood’ in 1982.
This went on to become both a critical and profitable hit at the box-office. However the sequels for the film, ‘Rambo: First Blood Part II’ and ‘Rambo III’, were met with much less success.
In 1982, he continued with his ‘Rocky’ franchise and came up with ‘Rocky III’, followed by ‘Rocky IV’, three years later. In order to be able to do full justice to the role, he worked out and embarked on a demanding training program, after which he became an extremely popular fitness symbol.
In 1987, he decided to break away from his ‘tough nut’ roles and starred in the film, ‘Over the Top’, which was a different genre of film. However, the film did not do well at the box-office and was received poorly by critics.
Two years later, he once again starred in a different genre of film in ‘Tango and Cash’, which was successful.
In 1990, he starred in the fifth installment of the ‘Rocky’ series titled, ‘Rocky V’. The film did poorly at the box office and it was intended to be the last film in the franchise.
In the next two years, he tried his hand at comedy but failed miserably in ‘Oscar’ and ‘Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot’.
He starred in the successful film, ‘Cliffhanger’, which brought back the faith of his fans in his acting abilities. The same year, he starred in the futuristic film, ‘Demolition Man’.
From 1994 to 1996, he appeared in a string of hit films including, ‘The Specialist’, ‘Judge Dredd’ and ‘Assassins’.
In 1997, he appeared in the low-budget film, ‘Cop Land’ opposite Robert De Niro and Ray Liotta, which was an average hit at the box-office.
The next year, he lent his voice for the animated film, ‘Antz’.
From 2000 to 2005, he was seen in the films, ‘Get Carter’, ‘Driven’, ‘Avenging Angel’, ‘D-Tox’, ‘Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over’, ‘Taxi 3’ and ‘Shade’. In 2005, he was also the co-presenter for the boxing series, ‘The Contender’.
He took a break in 2005 and served as the host and mentor to contenders participating in the reality show, ‘The Contender’.
After a break from films, he made a comeback in Hollywood with the sixth Rocky instalment, ‘Rocky Balboa’, which became a critical sleeper hit, in 2006. Two years later, he released the fourth instalment of the ‘Rambo’ series, simply titled as ‘Rambo’. This movie also became equally successful.
He appeared in a small cameo in the Bollywood film, ‘Kambakkht Ishq’ opposite Kareena Kapoor and Akshaye Kumar in 2009. The next year, he starred in one of the biggest hits of the year, ‘The Expendables’.
In 2012, the sequel for the movie, ‘The Expendables 2’ was also released. The subsequent year, he starred in the action film, ‘Bullet to the Head’, which is based on the novel, ‘Du Plomb Dans la Tete’.

Thereafter, he married Brigitte Nielsen on December 15, 1985, but divorced her two years later in 1987.
In 1997, he married Jennifer Flavin, with whom he has three daughters.
Due to the demanding nature of his roles, he is known to have suffered countless injuries throughout his career, including a broken neck, which required him to get a metal plate inserted.

Sylvester Stallone Top Movie

Rocky (1976): 8.1

It seems fitting that the movie that made Stallone a household name and kickstarted his career is also his most highly acclaimed film. Rocky is the story of a poor boxer living in Philadelphia who is given the ultimate underdog shot at becoming the world champion.

The movie is the pinnacle of inspiring sports dramas. Stallone is amazing in the title role, playing a quiet and not-too-bright hero that the audience still roots for the entire time. It remains one of the most iconic films of all time.

First Blood (1982): 7.7

Stallone’s second most famous role was introduced on the big screen in First Blood. Stallone plays John Rambo, an ex-Green Beret who, after getting harassed by local police for no reason, begins a one-man war against them.

Given the reputation of the franchise as a whole, those seeing the film for the first time might be surprised at how small scale it is. It is more of a gripping thriller than an all-out action film and Stallone gives a powerful and reserved performance.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 (2017): 7.6

After playing the action hero role for years, it makes sense that Stallone would eventually find himself in a superhero movie. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was the exciting return of the cosmic heroes as they battle various enemies while discovering the truth about Peter Quill’s father.

Creed (2015): 7.6

MIchael B. Jordan & Sylvester Stallone in Creed

Though the Rocky franchise once again seemed to be done, Ryan Coogler breathed new life into it by focusing on the next generation. Creed introduced Apollo Creed’s illegitimate son Adonis who looks to prove himself by following his father’s footsteps into the boxing ring with the help of Apollo’s old friend Rocky.

Michael B. Jordan proved himself a star in the titular role while Stallone received an Oscar nomination for his emotional and powerful supporting role. The film also cemented Coogler as an extremely exciting talent to watch for.

Rocky II (1979) 7.3

The first Rocky film was a true underdog story that came out of nowhere to win the Oscar for Best Picture. Rocky II proved that there was still a lot more to this story than audiences may have thought. The sequel explores Rocky’s life after his historic fight with Apollo Creed and the promise of a rematch.

While it doesn’t quite capture the spirit of the first film, the sequel is a welcome return to the character. The personal relationships are still the heart of the story while the boxing aspects solid thrills.

Keys to Success From Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester Stallone’s success can teach us many things, so we thought we’d highlight some of his best keys to success:

The only way to be successful is to move forward and give it everything you’ve got.

Sylvester Stallone succeeded in life because he persevered and overcame every obstacle he faced as a young man trying to pursue his acting career. He had a difficult childhood but he never let his past hold him back.

If you know what you want, then get up and go get it.

All along Stallone knew what he wanted; from studying drama to dropping out of college to pursuing his career. Every decision that he made would in some way contribute to his acting career.

When he wrote Rocky he knew that the only way that he would hand it over to any producers was if they let him play the lead role.

He was determined to do something and he went out and did it because he believed he could and he knew he had potential.

Your failures don’t define you.

Stallone didn’t get to where he is today by letting his failures stop him or drag him down.

People didn’t believe that he could make a comeback like he did and he proved them wrong by not giving up. He persevered and didn’t stop until he was able to come back out on top.
