Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester Stallone, born in 1946, is mainly known for the interpretation of two of the most famous and iconic characters in the history of cinema, Rocky Balboa and John Rambo, protagonists of two popular film sagas that began with the films Rocky and First Blood. In 2010 he created the series The Expendables, created to pay homage to the action blockbusters of the eighties and nineties.

Stallone linked his fame to the interpretation of characters who manage to take revenge on an often closed and corrupt society, overcoming adversity and injustice thanks to their own willpower and physical strength. In 2015 he reprized the role of the boxer Rocky Balboa in the film Creed for which he won the Golden Globe for best supporting actor and was nominated for the 2016 Oscars in the category of best supporting actor, 39 years after the two nominations for the 1977 Oscars in the best actor and best original screenplay categories for the first Rocky.

In June 1985 he met the Danish model and actress Brigitte Nielsen, who was in New York at the time to promote the film Yado with Arnold Schwarzenegger. After a brief engagement, on 15 December 1985 Stallone and Nielsen got married in the home of producer Irwin Winkler: but after many scandals came the divorce on 13 July 1987.

Later, after some flirtations with the models Naomi Campbell, Janice Dickinson, Tamara Beckwith, Mary Hart and Andrea Wieser, the actresses Angie Everhart, Jami Gertz and Joyce Ingalls, Stallone remarried on May 17, 1997 with the model Jennifer Flavin, known years first in a restaurant in Beverly Hills by chance. From this marriage three daughters were born.

The actor has an IQ of 160 and is a member of Mensa.
