Sylvester Stallone was born on July 6, 1946 in New York City, New York, United States. He began his professional acting career in the early 1970s, first landing a role in The Party at Kitty and Stud’s. In 1976, he rose to international fame for playing the titular character in the sports drama feature Rocky, which he also wrote.
The film was a sleeper hit, winning an Academy Award for Best Picture. Stallone himself received two Academy Award nominations for Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay. He has since played Rocky Balboa in the subsequent Rocky films with the latest being released in 2015. He is also widely known for playing John Rambo in the Rambo films (1982-2008). Other films are Demolition Man, Assassins, Get Carter, Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over, and The Expendables.
Has Sylvester Stallone had Plastic Surgery?
Sylvester Stallone is mostly known for his performances in mostly action films, but even his being iconic as an action hero does not exclude him from plastic surgery. There are persistent reports throughout the years about the 69-year-old actor’s plastic surgery, which includes an eyelid lift and a nose job. The thing is, most people consider his plastic surgery a botched one, as his face apparently had become a mess. Aside from the mentioned procedures, he is also suspected of undergoing facelift, in addition to minor cosmetic works such as chemical peels and Botox.
These were said to be an attempt to reduce some years on his age, which observers think don’t really help as his excessive surgical enhancements made his face appear stranger rather than younger. Manhattan-based plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer said: “The pictures of Sylvester Stallone show signs of face and forehead lift – including visible scars. His brows also show an unnatural peak and skin bunching laterally. He does look improved from previous post-op photos, presumably the improvement has come as the swelling has resolved and the tissues have softened.”
