After years of muscling his way across the screen, Sylvester Stallone seeks a different label: serious actor.
From the Print Edition:
Sylvester Stallone, Mar/Apr 98
(continued from page 15)
CA: Is it like getting on a rocket ship?
Stallone: Yes. It really is. Some people--their nervous system is very fragile.
CA: How do you want to be remembered?
Stallone: I think I'd like to be remembered as someone who beat the odds through just plain determination. That I was just dogmatic about the whole thing, that I persevered. Because I think that being somewhat of a pest to life, constantly plaguing and pursuing, will bring results; if nothing else your voice will be heard because you have become such a pain in the ass. "Anything to get rid of him." It's that kind of thing. It's like that wonderful movie Rudy. You think of that five-foot-three guy. And I met him. He's the only person to be carried off the field at Notre Dame. And took a beating. Only because he was a pest in a positive sense. He pestered life until it gave in.
