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:
"I really shouldn't (carry on doing stunts) because it comes at a very serious price. I've had so many operations, I'm more like a robot than a human being. Since The Expendables in 2010, I've had two back operations, my neck is fused, I've had both my shoulders done and I've just had 70 stitches on my leg because the Achilles tendon exploded - yeah, that was a bad one.
"When I was shooting my next film, The Tomb, I tore my bicep. The doctor goes, 'Do you want to operate?' I go, 'No, forget it, I don't care. I'm not going through any more operations - besides, there's a tattoo of my wife there that I want to keep.' I guess I should use more stunt doubles than I do but for some reason I enjoy doing them. It's just a crazy challenge I can't resist."
Yeah, we'd say it's about time to use a double more often. No shame in that, plus no more surgeries and putting tattoos at risk.
What part of that DOESN'T sound good??
