Sylvester Stallone Discusses Arnold Schwarzenegger Feud

Arnold Schwarzenegger almost took a blow out on Sylvester Stallone burgeoning career in the 1990s, the 76-year-old actor said.

The action star explained his years of clashes with Schwarzenegger in the industry. It began when Stallone claimed that Schwarzenegger lured him into a role with Estelle Getty in the widely criticized 1992 comedy Stop! Or My Mother Will Shoot.

“We couldn’t stand to be in the same galaxy together for a while,” Stallone stated. He recently appeared on Friday in the UK’s long standing ITV talk series The Jonathan Ross Show. “We truly, truly loathed each other.” 

He added: “He’s quite clever. He goes around town saying, ‘I can’t wait to do this film.’ I got to my agent, ‘Get that thing away from him. Get people options on me.’ I got it, and I said, ‘What a piece of s— this is.’ He goes, ‘Ha ha ha!’ At least I wasn’t pregnant in a film, Arnold. We’re even.” 

In another Fox & Friends interview, the star addressed the situation.

“Schwarzenegger tricked me to do that piece of junk,” Stallone stated of the film. “That’s one of those things that you go, ‘Why am I in this?’ There’s a scene they say, ‘Would you mind wearing diapers?’ I’m going to kill Arnold. I am going to find him and track him.” 

As many may remember, Stallone starred as a police sergeant whose pompous mother (Getty) interferes in his professional life.

Schwarzenegger a “Prankster”

Moreover, he called his Hollywood rival a “prankster” who made him think he “desperately” wanted to get involved with Stop!

“And I go, ‘Well, I’m not going to let that happen,’” Stallone stated. “So, I snatch it. I said, ‘I want this film desperately.’ And once I got it, I realized, ‘I’m in such a turkey, and it’s not even Thanksgiving – it’s not even Thanksgiving, folks.’” 

While the film garnered negative reviews from critics, it ended up working for Stallone and Schwarzenegger. Twenty-four years later, Stallone received his third Oscar nomination for his contribution to the 2015 drama Creed.

Schwarzenegger, meanwhile, won a seat in government in 2003, becoming California’s 38th governor.

Stallone Films

The action star earned his first critical acclaim in The Lords of Flatbush as Stanley Rosiello. Afterward, he worked as an extra or side character in movies with a considerable budget until his limelight debut. 

In 1976, he started to gain traction as an actor and screenwriter with the character Rocky Balboa in the first installment of the highly acclaimed Rocky franchise. Additionally, he wrote the screenplay for the film series. 

A year later, Stallone became the third actor to earn a nomination for two Academy Awards for Best Original Screenplay and Best Actor. Furthermore, the National Film Registry inducted Rocky into its roster. The industry put the film’s props in the Smithsonian Museum. 

His face is very familiar to action movie enthusiasts as he starred in the Rambo film series. The first film, First Blood, earned him critical and commercial success. 

In the film, he played the soldier John Rambo, who faced challenges with PTSD after the war. 

From the beginning of his career until now, Stallone has proved to be one of the most esteemed action stars.

Sylvester Stallone Says Drago Producers are ‘Picking Clean’ Another Character

Sylvester Stallone has spoken out against the Rocky spin-off Drago  and its producers. He claims they have taken advantage of his popular character and have called them “parasites.” 

The 76-year old legend expressed his anger in an Instagram post, uploading a news article about the film and harshly criticizing those responsible for its creation.

Despite his statements not mentioning any names, it seems to indicate that he is aiming them at the series’ producer Irwin Winkler. While 91, he has received backlash from the actor countless times. He also seems to cite his children, showrunners Charles and David Winkler.

“Another Heartbreaker… Just found this out… ONCE AGAIN, this PATHETIC 94 year old PRODUCER and HIS MORONIC USELESS VULTURE CHILDREN, Charles and David, are once again picking clean THE BONES of another wonderful character I created without even telling me,” Stallone’s post read.

He ended his rant apologizing to fans, stressing that he didn’t intend for characters to be “exploited.”

“I APOLOGIZE to the FANS, I never wanted ROCKY characters to be exploited by these parasites.”

Stallone has strong feelings against the film, but he clarifies that there is no resentment towards Dolph Lundgren, who plays Ivan Drago in Rocky IV and Creed II and is into filming the project.

“By the way, I have nothing but respect for Dolph but I wish HE had told me what was going on behind my back,” he continued. “Keep you REAL friends close.”

Stallone Knew What He Wanted 

Stallone has always been open about his desire to take control of the lucrative franchise. He uploaded a statement earlier this month in which he urged Winkler to pass what’s left-over from his right. 

“After IRWIN controlling ROCKY for over 47 years, and now CREED, I really would like [to] have at least a little [of] WHAT’s LEFT of my RIGHTS back, before passing it on to ONLY YOUR CHILDREN,” Stallone said.

“I believe that would be a FAIR gesture from this 93 year old gentleman?”

“I wanted to leave something of Rocky for my children,” he further said, “but it’s always great hearing from the loyal fans… Keep Punching.”

Rocky Balboa was made by Stallone, who was struggling at the time to make a breakthrough into Hollywood. He would helm five movies and even direct Rocky II, Rocky III, and Rocky IV.

Stallone then came back for the Creed films, featuring Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Johnson, Apollo Creed’s (portrayed by Carl Weathers in the Rocky films I – IV) son.

The actor voiced his frustration about not possessing ownership stake in the franchise in an interview with Variety in 2019.

“I have zero ownership of Rocky,” he stated. “Every word, every syllable, every grammatical error was all my fault. It was shocking that it never came to be, but I was told, ‘Hey, you got paid, so what are you complaining about?’ I was furious.”

Although it is not clear where this war may lead them, fans can expect Stallone to star in Creed III, dropping this November 23.
