Sylvester Stallone Just Got a New Dog & It Perfectly Fits His Personality

Sylvester Stallone gets a new dog that seems to match his personality. Stallone, now 76, has been a working actor for over 50 years. He is still active in Hollywood, acting in upcoming projects including The Expendables 4 and possibly Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, as well as producing and directing an action film called Tough as they Come, and producing a female-led Expendables film.

Throughout his career, Stallone is perhaps best known for playing the role of Rocky Balboa in the Rocky films. In Rocky, Stallone plays rising boxing star Rocky Balboa, a man who has a tough exterior but is softened by elements of his life such as his beloved partner, Adrienne. Beyond Rocky, Stallone has acted in other tough-guy roles, including playing mercenary Barney Ross in his self-directed action-thriller The Expendables.

Now, Stallone has posted a new Instagram video of him with his new dog, and it seems perfectly in line with his personality. According to Stallone’s post, his new “four legged friend” is named Dwight. In the video, Stallone and Dwight appear to be getting along swimmingly in their initial meeting. Stallone seems to be speaking with breeders/trainers. The two voices are off-screen, but based on Stallone’s caption, might be “Trainer and breeder Dave Smith and his wonderful wife.” Check out Stallone’s post:

Dwight is a large, strong dog, but when Stallone scratches and pets him, the dog seems to warm up to him quickly. The voices off-screen even find this notable as Stallone continues to be affectionate towards Dwight. Like Stallone in his own on-screen roles, Dwight may look tough, but he seems to have a soft and lovable heart. Stallone even honors one of his roles through the name choice. In the post, Stallone references that Dwight is named after his “characters [sic] name from the Series.” The “series” in question refers to upcoming show Tulsa King, where Stallone plays a former Italian mobster Dwight “The General” Manfredi.

This dog post serves a dual purpose. For one, it creates an adorable look at Stallone with his new pup, appealing to fans of the actor who are familiar with his personality on- and off-screen. Secondly, it creates further hype for Tulsa King, which is set for a series premiere on Paramount+ on Nov. 13. As Stallone plays an aging mafia man, viewers can get another glimpse at Stallone’s career as he continues his roles into a new era of his life. Perhaps Stallone will post more with his character’s namesake dog in the months leading up to the Tulsa King premiere.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
