Biography of Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester Gardenzio Stallone was born on July 6th, 1946 in New York (USA). He is an American actor, director and screenwriter with Italian roots. Sylvester Stallone has a brother who is also in the film business.

Sylvester Stallone has suffered from facial muscle paralysis since he was born. Therefore, he was advised against an acting career. However, he did not let that scare him and initially started his career with smaller roles in films by Woody Allen or Dick Richards.

In 1976 Sylvester Stallone made his international breakthrough with the boxer drama "Rocky". He wrote the script and his portrayal as boxer Rocky Balboa fascinated the cinema audience and made him world famous overnight. In 1977 the film won a total of three Oscars in the categories of "Best Film", "Best Director" and "Best Editing".

"Rocky" was continued several times. In the sequels, the focus was even more on action. The sequels were also able to hold their own at the box office.

Sylvester Stallone was also successful with the film "Rambo" (1982). The film takes a critical look at the Vietnam War and the mood of US citizens towards the US Army at the time. Here, too, Sylvester Stallone worked on the script. "Rambo" was also continued several times.

At the beginning of the 1990s, Sylvester Stallone was a little quiet. Excursions into the world of comic films such as "Oscar- From Rain to the Eaves" (1991) or "Stop! Or My Mommy Shoots" (1992) ended far less successful for the action hero.

With "Cliffhanger - Only the Strong Survive" or "Demolition Man", Sylvester Stallone returned to action film in 1993.

At the end of the 1990s, silence fell again around Sylvester Stallone. With renewed sequels of his greatest successes "Rocky" and "Rambo" he started a comeback. "Rocky Balboa" was shown in cinemas back in 2007. The action film "John Rambo" will follow in early 2008. Here, too, the now 61-year-old (!) Sylvester Stallone can be seen again in the lead role.

Since 1981 the German voice actor Thomas Danneberg has been the standard speaker for Sylvester Stallone.

In his private life, Sylvester Stallone is married to Jennifer Flavin for the third time. The two have three daughters together. Sylvester Stallone already has two sons from his first marriage to Sasha Czack. His second wife Brigitte Nielsen did not give him any children.
