Sly Stallone is One “Driven” Guy

In the StarPeople section of STAR: SLY STALLONE is one driven guy, all right! He plays a race car driver in his new flick “Driven” and he insists on doing all his own stunts, including driving at speeds over 190 miles per hour. Studio heads have their fingers crossed that the daredevil doesn’t break his neck while the film is being shot. Luckily, SLY has the good sense NOT to do his own crash scenes. He’s leaving those to a body double.”

“Diner to the Stars”

US Weekly has a tidbit called “Diner to the Stars” in the Hot Stuff section. The piece is accompanied by very small pics of SLY, MEL GIBSON, DARYL HANNAH and LEONARDO DICAPRIO. Apparently the above named celebs have all been seen eating at a diner called Roni’s on Santa Monica Blvd. in Beverly Hills.

A Sly Business Plan

The September 5, 2000, issue of Star has the following item in the Janet Charlton StarPeople section:

SYLVESTER STALLONE is so impressed with the millions his wife JENNIFER FLAVIN has made selling her skin-care line on the Home Shopping Network that he wants a piece of the action. SLY‘s teaming up with the beauty to launch a line of personal grooming products for guys. SLY, 54, looks good for his age and he figures plenty of men will want to know his secrets. He’s busy working on the products with JENNIFER. [Could we soon see “Eau de Rambo” or Rocky‘s post-fight apricot facial scrub?] But SLY still hasn’t made his mind up about whether he’ll appear on TV with his wife. She wants him to, but he’s afraid it would be a bad career move.

Stallone and Schwarzenegger Planning a Project Together!
 posted an item today from the L.A. Times saying that : SLY and ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER have been talking about working on a project together. ARNOLD wants an all-star ensemble cast movie, ala “The Great Escape.” SLY is said to prefer that they appear as adversaries. It’s further reported that it all comes down to when the two agree on a script for the project.

Stallone: “I love my toughest role ever – dad.”

SLY STALLONE slugged his way to fame as Rocky and Rambo… but these days he prefers mixing it up with Barney the purple dinosaur. That’s because he loves his most challenging role ever – doting dad to Sistine, 2, and Sophia, 3.

So begins an “exculsive Enquirer interview” by Beverly Williston which appears in the August 22, 2000 issue of The National Enquirer. The one page article contains 4 pictures (the one above, Sly’s Beverly Hills Mansion, Sistine riding in a stoller, and Sly with Sophia).

Also included in the interview is this fast fact: “Stallone recently paid $500,000 for a new Mercedes with a Formula One race-car engine that propels it up to 200 m.p.h.

The issue is on stands now and the article alone is well worth the price of the issue.
