Sylvester Stallone is one of the world's most famous men. He is one of the top earners in Hollywood, yet for all that he has done, he never gets any respect. We loved Rocky and Cliffhanger, we liked Rambo and The Specialist, but we hated Judge Dredd. But what did all these movies have in common They were big movies that needed a big star to anchor them, and Stallone will always fit the bill. Bottom line, as far as movie stars go Stallone is one of the biggest ones out there!

Sylvester Stallone is a living legend and an under appreciated actor. It will take decades for historians to look back and give credit to the man who redefined what an action hero was. Before Arnold Schwarzenegger went from a low-budget B-movie actor, Stallone was already setting the tone for action films with Rocky and Rambo.

Quotes by Sylvester Stallone (b.1946)

Once in one's life, for one mortal moment, one must make a grab for immortality; if not, one has not lived.

I take rejection as someone blowing a bugle in my ear to wake me up and get going, rather than retreat.

I think that gravity sets into everything, including careers, but pendulums do swing and mountains do become valleys after a while... if you keep on walking.

I believe there's an inner power that makes winners or losers. And the winners are the ones who really listen to the truth of their hearts.

Success is usually the culmination of controlling failure.

Born in Hell's Kitchen, he went from a $100.00 a day porn star to one of Hollywood's elite. Sylvester is definitely one man who figured out how to end well. Much respect to him for that and for his vision and for converting his dream into reality. Honestly, I loved everyone of his blockbusters including the whole Rocky series and the last one 'Rocky Balboa' was poignant.
