Aging Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone, who is now 66 years old, has admitted that he always tries to be involved in the big action scenes in his movies. Sly says that he often gets a stunt double on board but often ends up doing the action sequences himself.
While he was talking to Extra, Stallone explained, “I swear to you, I try. Even in The Tomb that I just did with Arnold [Schwarzenegger], I thought, ‘Yeah, I'm going to do [stunt] doubles in that.’ But no, it was some real a*s kickery in that, too!”
He added, “Maybe it's just in my DNA. I look in the mirror and I still see this guy who did ‘Rocky.’ I say ‘Let's just bring it’ and 20,000 operations later, you still want to bring it.” He also admitted to admiring Schwarzenegger’s strength, adding, “I'll give him the nod, he's a tough boy.”
Sylvester Stallone can next be seen on the big screen in the movie Bullet to the Head, which is set to be released on February 1 in both the US and the UK. Meanwhile, The Tomb, in which he stars alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, will be released in both the US and the UK on September 27.
