Legendary actor Sylvester Stallone recently talked about Bruce Willis’ health struggles with THR.
“Bruce is going through some really, really difficult times. So he’s been sort of incommunicado. That kills me. It’s so sad.”
He also talked about multi-time WWE World Champion Batista (Dave Bautista). ‘The Animal’ has been one of the stars who transitioned his career into acting. He has been delivering some impressive performances in Hollywood especially portraying the character of Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. It was the same role that gave him his breakout in Hollywood. He recently concluded his role as Drax.
Sylvester Stallone sheds praise on Batista
Stallone stepped into the Marvel Comics Universe via his role as interstellar criminal Stakar Ogord in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise; maybe he’d prefer shooting like that, in an air-conditioned studio in front of a green screen, rather than a blazing hot junkyard? “No,” he said without hesitation. He added[via Parade]:
“I did that, and after three days, I wanted to kill myself. It’s like being trapped in an aquarium. Same room, same temperature, same clothing. Imagine getting up at 3:30 in the morning for three hours of makeup? I told [co-star] Dave Bautista,`You’re a legend to be able to do this.”
The former world champion wrapped up his in-ring career at WrestleMania 35 when he lost to Triple H in a match that received more appreciation over time. It was a classic against his longtime faction-member and rival, and the only opponent that The Animal wanted to face to end his career in professional wrestling. It wasn’t announced beforehand that it would be his retirement match as he didn’t want to take Kurt Angle’s moment away, with the latter also having his farewell match at the same event.
Batista was originally supposed to be the headlining inductee of the Hall of Fame Class of 2020. However, WWE canceled the 2020 Hall of Fame due to the pandemic, and prior commitments were the reason why they couldn’t induct him in 2021.
