His name is Sylvester Stallone.
One of the BIGGEST and Most famous American Movie superstars.
Back in the day, Stallone was a struggling actor by every definition.
At some point, he got so broke that he stole his wife’s jewelry and sold it.
Things got so bad that he even ended up homeless.
Yes, he slept in the New York bus station for 3 days.
He was unable to pay rent or afford food. His lowest point came when
he tried to sell his dog at the liquor store to any stranger.
He didn’t have money to feed the dog anymore.
He sold his dog for only $25. He said he walked away crying.
Two weeks later, he saw a boxing match between
Mohammed Ali and Chuck Wepner and that match
gave him the inspiration to write the script for the
famous movie, ROCKY.
He wrote the script in 20 hours straight!
He tried to sell it and got an offer for $125,000 for the script.
But he had just ONE REQUEST. He wanted to STAR
in the movie. He wanted to be the MAIN ACTOR.
He wanted to be Rocky himself. But the studio said NO…
They wanted a REAL STAR.
They said he “looked funny and talked funny.”
He left with his script. A few weeks later, the
studio offered him $250,000 for the script.
He refused. They even offered $350,000.
He still refused. They wanted his movie.
But NOT him. He said NO. He had to be IN THAT MOVIE.
After a while, the studio agreed, gave him
$35,000 for the script and let him star in it!
The rest is history! The movie won Best Picture,
Best Directing and Best Film Editing at
the prestigious Oscar Awards.
He was even nominated for BEST ACTOR!
The Movie ROCKY was even inducted into the
American National Film Registry as one of
the greatest movies ever!
And do you know the first thing he bought
with the $35,000? THE DOG HE SOLD.
Yes, Stallone LOVED HIS DOG SO MUCH that
he stood at the liquor store for three days waiting
for the man he sold his dog to.
And on the third day, he saw the man coming back
with the dog.
Stallone explained why he sold the dog and
begged for the dog back.
The man refused. Stallone offered him $100.
The man refused. He offered him $500. And
the guy refused. Yes, he refused even $1,000.
And, believe it or not, Stallone had to pay
$15,000 for the same dog he sold for only
$25! But he finally got his dog back!
And today, the same Stallone who slept in
the streets and sold his dog just because
he couldn’t even feed it anymore, is one of
the GREATEST Movie Stars who ever walked the Earth!
