Sylvester Stallone Shares How He Relaxes After Filming Tulsa King

Sylvester Stallone reveals how he relaxes after work on his upcoming television series Tulsa King. Production on the new Paramount+ series reportedly began in Oklahoma in March, with Stallone set to star as New York mobster Dwight Manfredi. Produced in conjunction with MTV Entertainment and 101 Studios, Tulsa King follows the mobster’s expulsion to Tulsa, where he begins to form a new crime syndicate after serving a 25-year prison sentence.

The Rocky and Rambo star is joined by prominent period and crime actors Max Casella (The Sopranos), Domenick Lombardozzi (The Irishman), Vincent Piazza (Boardwalk Empire), and Jay Will (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel). Created by Yellowstone mastermind Taylor Sheridan and showrunner Terence Winter (The Wolf of Wall Street), the series is also executive produced by Stallone, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari, Allen Coulter, David Hutkin, and Barden Aftergood. Tulsa King marks one of Stallone’s only major television roles, having previously featured as himself or in cameos on the likes of SNL and The Contender.

Tulsa King continues Stallone’s busy few months, having worked on projects like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, The Expendables 4, and Samaritan. While he may have recently lamented the fact that the Hollywood classic Rocky, which made him a household name in 1976, would never have been made in the modern-day film landscape, Stallone remains a hugely popular and highly sought-after actor. His reputation as an action veteran makes his casting an instant draw to fans of the genre, all but ensuring a certain level of success for Tulsa King regardless of its ultimate critical reception. Plus, as evidenced by his recent post, Stallone still enjoys what he does – or, he at least enjoys the part that comes after.

Joined by a host of reputable television and crime actors, Stallone’s foray onto the small screen appears geared toward success. With his latest post indicating that production is well underway, audiences can perhaps anticipate a trailer later this year to provide a closer look at Stallone’s first major television role. While information on Tulsa King has so far remained elusive, fans eager for updates can expect further news from the star himself, known for teasing his followers on social media with behind the scenes tidbits.

‘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.
