62 Year Old Monster – UPDATE8 Aug 2009 17 Comments
After the Cream of the Fight post a while back and the earlier post of Mr Kitco, i remembered a conversation i had with my brother about how for a 60 year old sylvester stallone was in the shape of his life. He pointed out to me though that in the last Rambo he never took his shirt off, and in Rocky during the boxing scene he did take his shirt off but pulled his trunks way up. Maybe he was hiding a beer belly and just worked on the other more obvious parts of his body? Wrong! The above picture of him in his latest movie The Expendables . The movie is featuring himself, jason statham, jet li and mickey rourke and seems like a decent line up for any action packed junkie. Ok, now back to sly, as you can see no such things as ‘man boobs’ and beer belly found in his latest movie. We all know he has probably been taking every growth hormone, steroid and botox course known to man, but c’mon he is 62 years old at least give him credit for trying. Most people half his age (like me and you), look more like the funky hipster below than the bag of muscle above.
Well at least this guy has got the ‘fatty-muscle-pose’ on.
So who cares what he shoots in his arms or wherever he does shoot them. He is 62 years old and could pass as a 30 year old body builder, apart from the immovable facial expressions and huge jaw. So my message at least to our favorite action hero and (should be) Oscar winner Sly Stallone, keep shooting them up man.
UPDATE : it seems in one of the scenes in The Expendables which he battles “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Sylvester Stallone actually had a break in his neck. He needed a metal plate inserted for a hairline fracture. Check out the link below for the complete story as well as another time he “almost died” during the filming of Rocky IV in a fight scene with Dolph Lundgren.
