When They Were Younger, Sylvester Stallone And Arnold Schwarzenegger “Really” Hated One Another
Sly Stallone explains how he and his Hollywood rival were constantly attempting to outdo and trick one another, which led to Sly landing a terrible movie role as a result of one of their schemes.
For a period, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger were bitter enemies. Sly, 76, who co-starred with Estelle Getty in the 1992 comedy film “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot,” claimed he was duped into agreeing to the disaster because he’d heard his rival wanted the project.
For a while, he remarked, “We couldn’t stand to be in the same galaxy together.” “We genuinely, deeply despised one another. He’s a very smart guy. He walks throughout town proclaiming, “I can’t wait to make this movie… ‘ I tell my agent, “Get that item out of his hands.” Give me options, please. When I received it, I said, “What a piece of s*** this is.” He exclaims, “Ha ha ha!” Arnold, at least I wasn’t carrying a baby in a movie. We are equal.
Over the years, the “Rocky” actor sparred with legendary boxers, which frequently resulted in injuries. He said, “I sparred with Ali, Joe Fraser gave me 11 stitches, and that was in approximately two seconds,” on “The Jonathan Ross Show.” In Rocky 3, I was considering replacing Mr. T with him. Let me use a real fighter, I commanded. That’s not a smart move. They are unsure of how to quit holding back,The main point is that they don’t know how to quit holding back. Earnie Shavers nearly beat me to death without even trying; they say, “I’ll just follow through.” Gloves weighing 20 ounces were on [him]. What if he was enraged? ”
“What’s the big deal, guys? I wondered.
I tell you what, you stand there because [he said] “You’re meant to play a goalie, I’m going to tell you precisely where I’m going to kick it [the ball] and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it.” I’m in the corner and all I hear is this [woosh]; the next thing I know, my finger is shattered. The ball breached a window and tore through the back of the net. I took heed of this,I tell you that!”
