Usually actors and actresses have no time for other people due to their busy and hectic acting career. That’s not the case with Sylvester Stallone, though. This man is not afraid to be friends with other movie stars as he spends a lot of time with some of them and keeps in touch with many of them. Sly is close friends with movie stars such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Al Pacino, Dolph Lundgren, Jason Statham, Frank Grillo, Mel Gibson, Carl Weathers, Bruce Willis and the list goes on and on. Even Jackie Chan is Sly’s buddy even though they have never starred in a movie together.
While Sly is friends with many actors, he’s obviously the most closest to Arnold. Why didn’t Sly and Arnie star in a movie together in the 80’s and 90’s when they could have? Well they didn’t want to be competitive and “ego” just got in the way for the most part. They used to hate other and used to be “enemies” back then. I guess they waited for the right time to bury the hatchet and now they’re like best brothers which is crazy.
Just imagine if Sly and Arnold did make an action movie together in the 80’s and 90’s? It would have been huge for sure and would have broken box office records. It’s too bad it didn’t happen. Well they are finally starting to star in movies after all these years with them two teaming for The Expendables series and the first “Escape Plan” movie. They’ll probably do another movie together in the future, though and will probably end up being “Expendables 4”.
Arnold and Sly continue to hang out. They just reunited after all the social distancing stuff with Covid and both guys are probably fully vaccinated so they’re starting to hang out again.
