Sly ‘proud to be amongst ugliest guys’ in ‘The Expendables’August 5th, 2010 - 12:06 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, August 5 (ANI): Sylvester Stallone is back in action in his next movie ‘The Expendables’ and he is proud of it for a very different reason this time.
The action thriller is about a team of highly trained - and very dangerous - mercenaries who are sent to South America to overthrow a ruthless dictator.
“I thought we had the ugliest group of guys on the planet in one movie. That is what I am so proud of. We all look like horseshoes or catchers mitts,” Fox News quoted Stallone as saying.
People go, ‘wow, that is a sexy group of guys,’” he joked. “And I say, ‘excuse me, you’re talking about the “Twilight” team, not us.’”
“The Expendables,” co-written and directed by Stallone stars the biggest names in action from the past two decades, including Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Steve Austin and Bruce Willis.
But Mickey Rourke takes Stallone’s insults lightly.
“He is very competitive,” Rourke explains of his director and co-star.
“He is competitive [even] with himself. He keeps challenging himself and reinventing himself. I think that is something you have to do if you want to survive [and] have longevity.” (ANI)
