Legendary actor Sylvester Stallone’s daughters claimed that their famous father makes their dating lives difficult.
Sylvester Stallone has awkward interactions
The 76-year-old actor is starring alongside wife Jennifer Flavin, 54, and daughters Sophia, 26, Sistine, 24, and Scarlet, 20, in the upcoming Paramount+ reality show “The Family Stallone.”
The family of five sat down for an interview with Fox News Digital, and Stallone’s daughters weighed in on how hard it is to bring dates home to meet the “Rocky” star.
“Nearly impossible!” Sistine said.
Jennifer added, “They have to prep Sly before, like, ‘You have to say hello…’”
“We also have to prep the date before,” Sistine interjected.
“We have to prep the guy,” Scarlet agreed before pointing at her father and adding,”He’s not going to budge!”
“I’ve said, ‘He might not say hello, don’t take offense. That’s just how he works. He might grip your hand too hard…'” Sistine explained.
“That’s a total myth!” Stallone exclaimed.
“‘He’s just trying to show you up,'” Sistine continued, describing the advice she gives her dates.
“And you kind of – you’ve just gotta soften the blow,” she said.
“Or ‘If the guy standing in the corner is glaring at you, just keep walking,'”Jennifer added.
“These guys are weird. I saved you,” Stallone said as his wife and daughters laughed.
“Oh my gosh,” Sistine said as Scarlet shook her head.
“I did,” the “Creed” actor insisted. “I came to the rescue.”
While Stallone’s first interactions with his daughters’ dates are often awkward, Scarlet said fans might be surprised to learn their father is helpful when it comes to another aspect of their love lives.
“He gives very, very good advice on the daily and especially dating advice,” she said.
“I’m Dear Abby, thank you very much,” Stallone joked.
In their interview with Fox News Digital, Stallone and Flavin, who will celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary on May 17, shared their thoughts on the secret to a long marriage.
“Laughter,” Jennifer said. “Laughter is great. But being best friends, I think, as well. We are just very comfortable with each other.”
She continued, “We have so much fun. We can be doing nothing and just enjoy every minute of it. We don’t get bored of each other.”
“Yeah and I’m constantly in awe of her ability to just keep everything going,” Stallone added. “I don’t think, men, that’s their forte.”
“I mean, so the house – if you want to have a nice house, this and that – and you have this incredible woman who raises three beautiful children and keep everything under control, that’s one thing,” the Golden Globe winner continued.
