Sylvester Stallone Says Tim Burton Ruined Action Stars

Written by , Posted in General

Sylvester Stallone discussed his new film, The Expendables, on Howard Stern, and he explained his very interesting theory that the Michael Keaton and Tim Burton Batman film, ruined action stars.  The reason? — body suits.  Stallone contends that Tim Burton introduced the body-suit, which comes with built-in muscles.  That means that scrawny guys like Michael Keaton and Tobey Maguire can play action heroes, and guys like Stallone, who were valuable because of their real muscles, are no longer needed.  Who knew Stallone was so darn cerebral?  The theory actually had me scratching my head for a bit, and then I asked myself a very important question.  If I was about to be attacked in a dark alley, would I want a spandex version of Tobey Maguire to rescue me, or a muscle clad Stallone dressed in ordinary clothes?  I’d pick Stallone.  Something tells me Tobey’s unitard wouldn’t help me much. // ]]>

    Well by Sly’s logic the follwing people should have won Golden Globes:

    Brian Bosworth (ex football player) “Stone Cold”

    John Cena (WWe Wrestler) The Marine and 12 Rounds

    Rick Fox (Basketball Player)Resurrection

    Shaquille O’neal Steel

    Dennis Rodman (Basketball Player) Double Team

    Hulk Hogan…. in anything even Reality TV

    These are just a few examples. I will take a unitard with talent over a steroid induced publicity stunt.

    Bullshit. Christian Bale gained 30-40 pounds of pure muscle in between The Machinist and Batman Begins based on good old fashioned iron in the gym and a dirty bulk diet of plenty of burgers and donuts. The meathead action star lives! He just doesn’t have to do that in every role. And WTF is Stallone crying about? His biggest win with the critics since Rocky was Copland.

    • Christian Bale never looked anywhere near as big as Stallone in Stallone’s
      key action roles. That’s because he didn’t have to. The costume took care
      of it. In fact, next time you hook up with a lady, maybe you should buy
      one. 🙂
