Today, legendary actor Sylvester Stallone turns 71. Whether or not you like him, it doesn’t matter. He has been a part of all of our lives. Even if you’re not much of a fan, you’ll have to admit that Rocky & Rambo was a huge part of your life too. Admit it, right? You can say what you want about Sly. The guy is an important part of Hollywood.
To me this man is amazing. He’s more than just a good actor, I like him a lot ’cause he’s an inspiration. He’s a guy who just keeps fighting and inspires all of us to do the same. Ya know, fighting in life to keep moving forward… forgetting the past and enjoying life. That’s what his Rocky character was about. It’s not just about boxing. The series were about “life”, pretty much.
A lot of people still like to criticize Sly’s acting, directing and his work in film but I can’t understand why. He’s a very talented man, in my opinion. He’s got this unique speaking voice which can be easily impersonated by other people. On top of all this, Sly is such a cool as hell guy. He has a great sense of humor and he’s funny as hell in real life too. Sly is humble and seems down to earth.
You know when a lot of celebrities out there like to glorify their fame and fortune? Thinking they’re all special and shit? Well that’s not Sly. If you watch his videos on instagram, you’ll be surprised to see that he’s completely normal like all of us. He’s a family guy like a lot of you out there.
Sly is mostly known as an action star but he does have “acting” talent and he really proved that in the movie, “Creed”. Sometimes people make fun of me for being a huge fan of Sly but I don’t care. He has always been important to my life ever since I was a kid. Of course, when I was a kid, I was introduced to Rocky films and I became a huge fan of Sly ever since. Still am a huge fan now. I have seen pretty much all movies he has starred in over the years.
What are some of Sly’s best films outside of “Rocky” and “Rambo”??? Well lets see “Cop Land” is a phenomenal film. “Creed” is also one of his best films. I also thought “Cobra” was one of his best action films.
Love him or hate him, Sly is a genius. Thanks for all you do Sly!!!
