“If you ask for a third one I’m going to punch you in the face”: Sylvester Stallone Really Threatened Fan Over Autograph? (Video Inside)
The good old days of timeless action movies became classics over time with the help of all the stars that gave their hearts and souls to making the genre what it had become, and one of the most prominent names amongst the many talented stars comes from one Sylvester Stallone. Leading some of the biggest franchises of the 80s and 90s looked easy when people saw the star taking down adversaries and box office records one after the other.
And mesmerized by his performance in almost all of his films, the fans would flock around the star whenever they saw him in public like a man to a warm flame on a cold night. And to honor their love and support, the star would also entertain their wishes, may it be taking a couple of pictures with everyone or signing autographs. But sometimes, a situation arises where people try to take advantage of you, and that’s where Stallone draws the line.
Sylvester Stallone Threatens A Fan For Being Too Greedy!
Despite playing the roles of some of the most dangerous and deadly people in the movies for most of his career, Sylvester Stallone is often said to be a good sport when it comes to his fans and supporters. The Rambo star always takes time to sign autographs and take pictures with people who like to interact with him in public, something that many of the elite superstars of Hollywood generally avoid.
But even he has limits, especially when he notices someone taking undue advantage of his time and effort. This situation arose when he was approached by a lot of fans when he was strolling outside in public and was recognized. Many fans were gathered around him, and he was patiently interacting with all of them, but then, a young fan with a notebook came forward and asked Rocky Balboa for autographs, which just increased as he kept on singing until the fan asked for a third one. This was the point that he realized that this fan was being too greedy, and needed to be put on the spot.
So, to stop the fan’s nagging, the star straight-up threatened the person with one of his signature Rocky punches. He said:
“if you ask for a third one I’m going to punch you in the face.”
Stallone obviously meant it as a joke, but the fan seemed to be quite intimidated by his tone and scared by his threat, which might be the reason he ran. Just goes to show you should never mess with the GOAT ever.
What Is Next For Sylvester Stallone?
Even after giving superhits after superhits, the industry is just not done yet with the star. After the success of the first season of Tulsa King, Paramount has decided to bring back Stallone for a second season of the show. Apart from his appearance in a series, he is also ready to reprise his role as the battle-hardened mercenary Barney Ross in the upcoming The Expendables 4. Rest assured, fans are still getting the star’s masculine charisma for some time to come.
