On Tuesday (September 28th), Rocky star Sylvester Stallone took to his Instagram account to share details about his appearance on his daughters’ UNWAXED Podcast.
“It’s incredibly great to get to work with my daughters on their exciting podcast,” Sylvester Stallone shared in the post. He also stated he thinks he finally peaked in his career thanks to this podcast interview, which was done by his daughters Sistine and Sophia Stallone.
During his chat on the podcast, Sylvester Stallone stated he wants to be described as the “pod father” from now on. His daughters also agreed that Instagram is actually great for him since he’s now able to connect with his fans. “I’m going on TikTok next,” the actor declared. His daughters both said him going on TikTok is the most embarrassing thing he could do.
“We’re gong TikToking!” Sylvester Stallone stated. He also responded to various questions from his daughters, including what he thinks about the guys that the girls have dated. The podcast interview will be released tomorrow.
Sylvester Stallone Shares More Details About His Acting Career as He Ages
During a recent interview with Esquire Middle East, Sylvester Stallone opened up about his acting career as he ages. “At my age, I look at every film like maybe it’s my last bullet,” Stallone declared. “I try to aim it in the right direction and work hard on it. It wasn’t always like that.”
Sylvester Stallone also admitted that in the ‘80s, he felt like he was going to live forever. And because of that, he didn’t pay much attention during that time. “I’d have filmed lined up for the next two years. They’d call them ‘slots.’ The most important thing at the time was just to make sure the slots were filled.”
The Rocky star then explained that he didn’t really focus on his acting craft in the ‘80s as much as he thought he did. Sylvester Stallone also believes that when you get older, you get better. “You get some wisdom. You may slow down physically, here and there a little bit. But you add gravitas. Your memory doesn’t. But with time, your emotions get weightier.”
Sylvester Stallone further explained that he likes watching Clint Eastwood’s performances as he ages. Along with his great acting, Eastwood also gains more authority as he ages. “You never would have said he had that back when he was playing a cowboy on a wagon train. But then he became this very authoritative father figure. And you listen to what he says.”
In regards to his own reputation, as he aged, Sylvester Stallone goes on to add that he has also become something of a father figure to younger actors. “And I enjoy that a great deal. I mean, I don’t really. I just say that because I thought it sounded good.”
