Sylvester Stallone and Richard Gere are two of the leading stars of Hollywood and have been in the film industry for a long time. However, they never shared the screen.
The reason behind this is considered to be the alleged feud between the actors that dates all the way back to the 1970s. While they never appeared on screen together, Stallone and Gere were set to share the screen.
Originally Richard Gere was to share the screen with Sylvester Stallone in 1973’s The Lords of Flatbush before the former star was replaced with Perry King.
Sylvester Stalloned and Richard Gere involved in a fight
According to an interview, the 76-year-old actor was sitting at the back of his car enjoying his lunch when Gere came and dropped a mustard-dripped chicken on Stallone’s thigh. This led to a physical altercation which led to ultimately Gere getting fired from the movie.
“The original part of Chico, which was played by Perry King, was originally supposed to be played by Richard Gere, but we never hit it off…I elbowed him in the side of the head and basically pushed him out of the car. The director had to make a choice: one of us had to go, and one of us had to stay. Richard was given his walking papers and to this day seriously dislikes me.”
Till now, the actors have never been spotted together again following their heated meet-up at Elton John’s party and it is doubtful to happen now.
