"People accept Rocky Balboa as authentic. I can’t tell you how many people have come up to me and asked about my boxing career. It’s like they really want to believe that Rocky exists. You know, I’m amazed by all of this. At one time I thought people would get over their fascination with the character and move on. Didn’t happen. After 30 years, Rocky has taken hold to a degree I never could have imagined."
"It would be great to be able to pass on to someone all of the successes, the failures, and the knowledge that one has had. To help someone, avoid all the fire, pain and anxiety would be wonderful."
Happy 68th Birthday, Sylvester Stallone!

He kicked him so hard he exploded.
