Sylvester Stallone Bio

Sylvester Stallone (born July 6, 1946) is an American actor, writer and producer. His life is really interested and amazing. Because some complications at birth, part of his left face side is paralyzed, including chin and thong. This gives him unique voice and speaking abilities. During his childhood, he lived with her mother and because they haven’t enough money he had a summer job at her mother’s beauty salon.

His first role in a movie was in 1970 in the soft core adult movie. He was working for two days and was paid $200. After many years, Stallone said that at that time he was broke and homeless, so he had to do that. After watching one of the Muhammad Ali’s fight, he got inspired and wrote scripts for his first movie, Rocky.

Using small amount of money he had, he started searching for the producer in order to make this movie. After extensive search he was without any luck. Stallone even sold his dog to gain money for this search! When he finally found a producer who want to make his movie situation was complicated.

The producer wanted to buy the script from him, but Stallone wanted to have the main role in the movie. He was denied several times (but it was offered to him the bigger amount of money), and at the end the producer accepted his proposal.

That’s how Rocky was born. After finishing this movie, he found the person who bought his dog and gave him 10 times more money to have his dog back. Today Stallone is known for many movies like: Rambo, The Expendables, Escape plan and many others.
