Sylvester Stallone and his wife attended UFC 281, and Mrs. Stallone looks scorching in a video seen below. Action megastar Sylvester Stallone said in an interview with The Times recently that one of his biggest regrets was doing his own stunts in his movies – stunts that led to various injuries, some which needed surgery and some that left Stallone in intensive care.
Stallone is one of the biggest action stars that ever was and starred in the mega-hit franchises Rambo and Rocky. The action took a toll on Sly’s body after he was injured during filming Rocky and then seriously injured again during the filming of The Expendables 3.
During the production of the 2014 film, Stallone suffered a broken back, which needed 5 different surgeries, neck fusion and Stallone also had to have his shoulders repaired.
“Don’t do your own stunts, that’s the moral of that. But the special effects became more important than the person. Life is a matter of managing your ass-whipping” Stallone told The Times, reflecting on his injuries over the years.
The filming of Rocky IV nearly ended Stallone’s life, the star ended up in intensive care when his heart began to swell after shooting his scenes with co-star Dolph Lundgren.

During an interview prior to the re-cut release of the 1985 film, Stallone said:
“In the first round, where he knocked me down, that is for real. He pulverized me, and I did not feel it at that moment but later that night my heart started to swell.”
Stallone went on to explain that his peri cardio sac, the protective sac that holds the heart, had become bruised due to the constant blows to his chest over weeks of filming.
“He had bruised the peri cardio sac, which is when the heart hits the chest – like in a car accident when your chest hits the steering wheel.”
“My blood pressure went up to 260. They thought I was going to be talking to angels.”
