II. Some information about Sylvester Stallone
Sylvester Stallone's real name is Sylvester Gardenzio Stallone, born on July 6, 1946 in New York, USA. We often know him through the image of the mighty boxer Rocky Balboa, or a seemingly immortal Rambo in battle. Dubbed as one of the "old man tendons" of the world cinema, with 24 awards, 25 nominations including 2 Oscars. Money and fame are what this 70-year-old man does not lack anymore, but few people know that to get where Sylvester Stallone is today, he had to pour a lot of sweat, blood and tears.
Born in poverty, Stallone, like many other young people, left home and was born to be independent. Due to neurological damage from birth, paralysis of the left side of the face, a drooping lower lip and a stuttering stutter, the young man's face looked very funny. Stallone was used to being teased by friends and people alike.
With dreams of becoming an actor, Stallone frequented the sets and signed up for supporting roles. Ironically, he was frequently rejected. Struggling with the role of an unknown actor, the climax of the crisis was when he was evicted from a rented house for lack of money. Wandering on the street for 3 days and nights without a penny, Stallone swallowed his tears and sold his beloved dog - the only companion at that time because there was nothing to feed him - for 25 USD for a stranger at the pub.
Continuing his wandering life, about two weeks later, Stallone accidentally watched a fiery boxing match between Mohammed Ali and Chuck Wepner. This match was the fate that changed his life forever. The drama of the match strongly inspired Stallone to write the script for 'Rocky', whose dark life was filled with hope.

In the 20 hours without eating or sleeping, the outpouring of emotions turned into words, he completed the script of 'Rocky'. Stallone then offered to sell the script he had just finished writing, a filmmaker agreed to buy it back for $125,000 for the 20-hour script. However, Stallone attached a request: he must be starring in that movie! No one else, but himself - an unknown actor, will be the main role in the film written by himself. Of course, the filmmakers never agreed, they wanted a real actor - a veteran star at that time, not "an unknown face with unnatural expressions and stuttering".
Stallone had to take back the script and left sadly. A few weeks later, the filmmaker approached him again and raised the price to $ 250,000, he did not hesitate to continue to refuse that huge number. Then the offered price was raised to 350,000 USD, Stallone again…rejected. Realizing Stallone's intense passion as well as his open-mindedness, the filmmaker finally gave in to him to play the main role in the original - Rocky Balboa, but the price paid for the script was reduced to only ... 35,000 USD. Right after that, he plunged into crazy training non-stop for half a year, to get in shape like a real boxer. Legs worn out from running, hands bruised from punching practice...sweat, tears and even blood were accepted by Stallone to sacrifice for a 'Rocky'!.
The film became a box office phenomenon, grossing $225 million worldwide and becoming the highest-grossing film of 1976. Not only was it a commercial success, it was also nominated for 10 awards.
