Sylvester Stallone's vein tattoo

Feb 3 2013, 10:19am CST | by

Sylvester Stallone got a tattoo of his wife to cover a burst vein.

The actor sports huge tattoos across his back and shoulders in his new film 'Bullet to the Head', and they are real rather than painted on for the role, inked because he had an unsightly vein.

He said: ''The tattoos are real - unfortunately. I have all kinds of chest injuries; I tore my vein during 'Rocky II' and had 60 stitches. If you've seen 'Rocky Balboa', you'll know how bad they look. It got worse and worse, and people were saying, 'Urgh, has he got varicose veins?' So I thought, 'f**k it', and covered them with a tattoo of my wife.

''Then the tattoo started to grow and it went to a skull and before I knew it, I was a mural.''

Sylvester, 66, is still lining up action roles and sustaining injuries, with his latest affliction on his calf sustained while filming 'The Tomb' with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

He told Shortlist magazine: ''I just got this one - 70 new stitches. This is from 'The Tomb' with Schwarzenegger. It's a little memento. I've had both shoulders done, my neck done, two back operations, achilles tendon and now this thing - the peroneal tendon - just ruptured. This is the worst f*cking one ever. I feel like an old athlete. Every time you touch something, it breaks.''

Rambo 5's Rumored New Title

Sep 10 2014 5:28pm CDT | Source: ign

Sylvester Stallone intends on making Rambo 5, which rumor has it will take its name from a game. ComingSoon claims that the fifth film is titled Rambo: Last Blood, which is not only a play on the original movie's title First Blood, but was also the name of an online flash game developed by Peter Javidpour (The Last of Us). If this title rumor is true then we're pretty doubtful the movie will also follow the plot of the game, which saw Rambo killed b ...

Bradley Cooper to Star in MACK BOLAN Movie; Todd Phillips to Direct Action Novel Adaptation

Aug 18 2014 10:00pm CDT | Source: Collider

Author Don Pendleton introduced Mack Bolan (aka The Executioner) in 1969.  Pendleton wrote 37 Mack Bolan novels, sold the rights in 1980, and ghostwriters have produced over 600 books in the ongoing series.  Over the years, many of Hollywood's burliest leading men have angled to play the Vietnam veteran who fights against international terrorism, including Steve McQueen, Sylvester Stallone, Clint Eastwood, and Vin Diesel.  But a film adaptation has remained elusive. Writer Shane S ...

The Real Villain of ‘The Expendables 3′ Is Not Piracy, But Mediocrity

Aug 18 2014 4:26pm CDT | Source: screen rant

The Expendables 3 opened in theaters this weekend, although you wouldn’t know it by looking at the top three grossing films. It was beat out by Let’s Be Cops and the second and third weekends for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Guardians of the Galaxy, respectively. The disappointing opening weekend box office haul for Sylvester Stallone and his crew of mercenaries continues the downward trend of the series’ financial earnings in their theatrical runs, potentially made slightly worse by ...

Avatar Writer Targets Mack Bolan

Shane Salerno takes a shot at another franchiseAny number of potential movie properties have spent years in Development Hell, but few can match the tortuous journey of Mack Bolan to the screen. The star of an incredible 900-odd pulp novels that are still being published at the rate of a dozen a year, action super-agent Bolan has so far defeated everyone who's tried to build a movie around him. Now, 45 years after Bolan's print debut, Avatar 4 writer Shane Salerno has stepped u ...
