Sly in posted a larger version of the photo above in their July 29, 2008 piece on Catherine Zeta-Jones and Sly Stallone in Rome vacationing with their families. Here’s what they had to say about Sly:

Another famous face holidaying in Europe this year is Sylvester Stallone. The Rambo star is showing wife Jennifer and their three daughters – Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet – the sights of France and Italy before he gets to work on the thriller Notorious, which he’ll direct and star in.

Sly in People’s Star Tracks

Sly and the Family Man: Sylvester Stallone carted around 3-year-old daughter Sophia Rose as they caught some after-Christmas sales in Beverly Hills. Stallone and his wife, former model Jennifer Flavin, have another daughter Sistine Rose, 18 months.
The actor, who has been absent from the screen since his 1997 drama Copland, next co-stars with Tom Berringer in the police thriller D-Tox, due in September.


Can you believe that Sophia Rose is three already? That just goes to show how time flies… and September will be here before we know it!

Sly Stallone would love to bring Rocky and Rambo back to the big screen, but due to his age (55) doesn’t think much of his chances.  Sly told Britain’s Mirror newspaper…

‘It’s unlikely either my Rocky or my Rambo picture will get made.’

On another note, Sly and Jen have announced that their new baby’s name will be Scarlett Stallone  Craig (01/27/02)

JENNIFER FLAVIN Opens the Doors to the STALLONE House

The May 8th issue of Hello contains the article: JENNIFER FLAVIN Opens the Doors to the New Hollywood Home She Shares with SYLVESTER STALLONE. The five page piece features an interview by Kathleen Beaulieu-Sclafani with eight photos by Ralph Merlino. Below are excerpts and quotes from the article/interview:

“Either SLY or I are always with the children.”

“I would love to have another daughter, but SLY would like to have two more.”Although JENNIFER‘s cosmetics business is flourishing and has made her a multimillionaire in her own right, her children SISTINE and SOPHIA and husband SYLVESTER are still her top priorities.

I feel I’m a very lucky lady. SLY is my best friend. He’s very funny, an excellent father and just fun to be around.”

Hello magazine originates in the UK. It can be found out most Barnes & Noble bookstores and the like. This issue is worth tracking down.

I’d love a chance to see all of SLY‘s memorabilia. He has some cool stuff on the shelves in the pic to the right that I’ve never seen before!

Thanks to Ernest “Jazzman” Resendes for the heads-up!

“If this never happened, would I be able to survive? Yeah, I could paint and write and enjoy that. An artist dies twice. The second death is easy. But when people don’t appreciate you as a performer anymore, that’s very difficult. That’s one death. What to do?”

“Real love is when you become selfless and you’re more concerned about your mate’s or your children’s egos than your own.”
“There is nothing more exalting than requited love.”
“Now I’m a giver instead of a taker.”
– SYLVESTER STALLONE from Parade interview 04/22/01

My values have altered drastically.”
“Blazing guns hold little allure for me now.”
“Now I understand what is sacred.”
“I may not be at the top of my game with my career, but in my private life I am.”

I can not urge you strongly enough to get a copy of this interview if you are a SYLVESTER STALLONE fan. I’ve included just some of the pics and enough quotes that you can see that SLY has given a lot of thought to where he has been and where he is going [in his life and career].

Stallone Home: First Look

The May 22, 2000 issue of People contains the following picture and article. Thanks to ERNEST “Jazzman” RESENDES for the “heads-up.”

On TV: Home Stallone

What does it take to get a celebrity couple to open their house to the public? In the case of SYLVESTER STALLONE and JENNIFER FLAVIN, whose Beverly Hills place was the scene of a guided tour televised for Home Shopping Networks viewers May 6, it was a cause close to home, as FLAVIN sold skin-care products and a percentage of the proceeds went to heart research. Their daughter SOPHIA ROSE, who turns 4 in August, was born with a ventricular septal defect, a congenital heart defect.

She’s fine thanks to surgery when she was 10 weeks old, but the STALLONES think more people, particularly new parents, need to be more aware of the ailment. “At first,” says FLAVIN, 31, “you think your baby’s a little fussy or maybe has colic. SOPHIA wouldn’t lie down; she would vomit constantly. She wasn’t gaining weight. But you never think that your child has a hole in it’s heart.”

After SOPHIA‘s condition was diagnosed, FLAVIN researched the problem and held fundraisers for the Heart of a Child Foundation, which supports heart-defect research.

SOPHIA, fully recovered is “the most energetic child I’ve ever seen, a whirling dervish,” says STALLONE. She is going to be fine, but says SLY, “a lot of people don’t know about congenital heart disease. We have to bang the drum loudly; and hopefully people will rally to the cause. We want to raise awareness.”
