Sylvester Stallone almost died during Rocky 3 for being to fit.

The man only had 2.8% body fat….Holly Sh*t. Anything under 5% of body fat and that person can go in cardiac arrest. Another near death experience for Stallone would be in Rocky 4.  Stallone wanted the punches to be real so he kept telling  Dolph Lundgren who plays Drago to keep hitting him harder. So he did and Stallone was put in the hospital for 5 days because his pericardial sac around his hart was swelling due to the punches to the chest. Man is a beast as he has done this with every actor in all the Rocky Movies, Crazy, Maybe but he wants the Film to look real, which in returns made the films great. Some may say the 4th film is not that good, heck even ratings on IMDb shows this. But its my favorite and who cares if there is a robot in this one. lol

Why am I sharing?  haha, because I am fascinated by the Rocky Bio film on the Bio channel.

Pretty good by the way some good story’s, Like the 1st Rocky was made for 950k and made 117 mill. Oh My.  Also the film was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won 3 of them. Thank you Sylvester Stallone for putting your health at risk to make classic movies. In the End it had to be well worth it. Just look at the Franchise now, Admired world wide. Your thoughts? Comment down below. Let me know if your a fan and if you have made any sacrifices to help ones self and or others.
