Sylvester Stallone News Archive
You remember Rocky V, right? The One where Sylvester Stallone takes on a rookie boxer to train? Of course you do — and that rookie boxer was a man named Tommy Morrison.
Not only was he talented on the screen, but he was extremely talented off the screen as well. In 1993 he took home a real title, taking down George Foreman in the heavyweight championship. He was IMPRESSIVE.
Unfortunately, though, with heavy hearts we bring you the news of his passing at 44 years old. He lost his fight with AIDS, something even a great boxer can't beat.
Apparently Tommy had been in the hospital for several months, before he died peacefully with his wife by his side. His long-time boxing promoter confirmed the death.
Here's a sad bit of info: in 1996, Tommy tested positive for HIV. Because the sport almost guarantees you'll come in contact with another person's blood at some point, this ended Tommy's career. He then denied having it, and denied that the disease even existed.
Our hearts go out to his family and friends.

Sylvester Stallone is refusing to get surgery after tearing his bicep during a movie stunt, because the procedure is too dangerous and he might lose his arm.
Just kidding, he's refusing because he's stubborn and sick of having operations due to movie-related injuries — and it would ruin a tattoo he has. Uh, okay. Just endure the pain then??
While we understand it's been a long road of surgeries, including his back, neck, shoulders and leg since shooting 2010's The Expendables, we can't imagine not fixing a problem. Even for a tattoo that's meant to tribute your wife.
Here's what he says:
Harley Pasternak, personal trainer to A-list actors, knows a thing or two about getting people into ahmayzing shape!
He was recently thinking about how the seksi bodies of leading men have changed over the years, from the Schwarzenegger and Stallone style bodybuilder bods to more lean Brad Pitt in Fight Club or Ryan Gosling all the time bods!
So if you want to look like a leading man, or you want your man to look a little more "Goslingy," just follow this workout!
Do you ever find yourself watching The Expendables (or Expendables 2) and wishing you looked even as remotely good as a bunch of guys twice your age??
Well you can!
First thing's first though — find better taste in movies! JK!!!!
Secondly, start hitting the gym. They didn't get there by watching The Expendables all day.
Thirdly, don’t neglect your nutrition plan. Check out some of the stars’ favorite foods to help you get started:
Looks like four years of the toughest training ever gets you more than a whole bunch of Olympic medals!
Ryan Lochte went to the premiere of The Expendables 2!
So cool that he got to hang out with so many HUGE action stars!
We bet many of them were really excited to meet the gold medalist too.
Must've been so much fun but Lochte earned it, he made his whole country proud!
Way to go, Ryan!

Being jacked at 66-years-old "comes at a price," according to Sylvester Stallone.
The veteran action star recently told sources that all of the beatings his and Arnold Schwarzegger's bodies have taken at the gym and on explosive movie sets is sending them to the doctor's office more frequently as they age.
Looks like you're back on your feet after your surgery, Arnold!
Wonder how much longer until he's back to 100% and ready to get is action movie on!
Plus, Terminators don't really heal, so he's probably just waiting for new skin. Ha!
Feel better, Arnold — hope the food was deee-lish!
