Stallone's acting career was not so easy. The son of poor Italian immigrant, he was born in the first postwar year in New York in the quarter, known under the nickname 'Hell Kitchen' - refuge hooligans, drug addicts and gangs of thugs. Kids Sylvester learned the first lesson of life: 'To survive, we must be stronger than others'. Having changed to 13 years in several schools (where he was expelled for bad behavior), witnessing his parents' divorce (now a mother - Jacqueline Stallone - is a column in the astrologer's fashion magazine), Sylvester decided to seriously take up sports. However, the young man saw his future in film, believing that it has sufficient evidence for this: a beautiful face with big sad eyes and body sculpture of an athlete. But all his attempts to 'break' on the screen for a long time did not lead to success ...
Coach and bouncer at a night restaurant, porter and cleaner cells in the zoo - in any profession is not only made an attempt at Stallone. And although his dream - to become an actor - has come true in 1970, participated in the film polupornograficheskom Gela Palmer 'Italian Stallion' and the emergence of episodic roles of gangsters and hoodlums was not something that he sought. Were unsuccessful and his stories and scripts that at night he wrote a beginner actor
. Films, where Stallone is glimpsed in episodes followed one another: 'You can not hide' (1973), 'The Prisoner of Second Avenue' (1975), 'Capo-not' (1975), 'Race' Cannonball '(1975), but, alas, they all went virtually unnoticed by critics and viewers
. If it was not a happy thought, Stallone visited in 1976 - to write a script, timed to 200 anniversary of the independence of America and himself to perform a major role in the film, it is difficult to say, as if formed his fate.

. Overnight, a third-rate actor Sylvester Stallone walked rapidly in the 'rank-star', and his Rocky character - kind, honest and hardworking, striving for convincing wins in the ring for the glory of his country, became known around the world. (In 1990, screens out the fifth series of the film, which starred Sylvester Stallone and his son - Seiji.) But apart from Rocky Stallone has another trump card - 'Rambo', the three series which brought the actor even more popularity and huge profits.

. In recent years, Stallone not only take in the most diverse roles, but often acts as writer, producer, writer. He has a wonderful collection of paintings by reviews acquaintances, now Stallone - charming and witty conversationalist, well acquainted with literature, theater, visual arts.
Changed not only the appearance (to replace the bright shirts and massive gold ornaments came impeccably stitched their suits), but also the inner world of man. And what of muscular supermen Stallone now goes to the roles quite different plan, confirms this.
Participation in comedy, John Landis 'Oscar' (1991) - remake of the famous French film with a brilliant Louis de Funes in the title role - opened to the public of the new Sylvester Stallone - comical, resourceful and cheerful.
And, apparently, the actor seriously decided to change the Position - now he again starred in the comedy. The film is called 'Stop, and then my Mom Will Shoot' (1992). Officially, the actor was married twice, and each time his divorce was accompanied by media-bashing, and Stallone was worth a large sum - several million dollars. Thus, the first wife Sasha, left alone with children, received from Stallone's 'maintenance' in the $ 33 million. A second wife - known Danish fashion model (now - actress and singer) Brigitte Nielsen (she was a partner Stallone in the film 'Cobra'), a divorce which has long been the focus of the press, 'satisfied' a million. Apparently, the bitter experience of marriage has not inspired Stallone to the new 'bonds of Hymen'. As the 'most eligible bachelor in Hollywood', Stallone is extremely busy man: he removed a lot, wrote scripts, dreams put the ballet, but also actively participates in the social life of American bohemia.
