London, August 10 (ANI): Sylvester Stallone has expressed his desire to be a role model for the youngsters.
The ‘Rocky’ star was in London’s West End for the premiere of ‘The Expendables’, which he wrote, directed and appeared in.
The film boasts a stunning array of muscle including Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Arnold Swarzenegger and Bruce Willis.
The plot centres on a group of ex-SAS soldiers who battle an evil drugs baron.
“Every generation has to have a hero and this generation has the superhero, it’s evolved. But after Avatar it’s like, ‘Stop, let’s go back to basics,’ the Mirror quoted him as saying.
“Young men need good examples, role models. I know I do, and I hope I might be one of the influences on young guys,” he added. (ANI)
