Hollywood action hero Sylvester Stallone has revealed how he finds it impossible to come to terms with the death of his son. Sylvester’s son Sage Stallone, who was an actor and producer, was found dead at the age of 36 back in July after suffering a heart attack and Sly insists that he will never fully accept it.
Stallone told Hello! Magazine, “I fall to pieces from time to time. You just do. It's a cycle you just have to deal with, like a virus that keeps coming back. You go through this time of thinking, 'It's really horrible', then you come out at the other end and realise there's not much you can do about it.”
He added, “And you forgive yourself... Then you go through another cycle where you don't forgive yourself, then you get over it again... It's just an ongoing thing. And I don't think it ever goes away.”
Sage Stallone played the character Rocky Balboa Jr in the Sylvester Stallone movie Rocky V in 1990 but missed out on reprising to role for the Rocky Balboa movie in 2006. The role instead went to Heroes actor Milo Ventimiglia.
