Sylvester Stallone can credit one of his biggest bombs to Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Long before they appeared in “The Expendables” franchise together, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger were bitter rivals.
“We couldn’t stand to be in the same galaxy together for a while,” Stallone, 76, said on Britain’s “The Jonathan Ross Show. “We truly, truly loathed each other.”
While the two action heroes have become friendly in recent years — even co-starring together in “Escape Plan” and the “Expendables” franchise — they once had an intense rivalry.
At one point, Stallone explained, Schwarzenegger tricked him into starring in the 1992 comedy “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot”, which was both a critical and box-office flop.
“He’s quite clever,” Stallone continued. “He goes around town saying, ‘I can’t wait to do this film.’ I go to my agent, ‘Get that thing away from him. Get people options on me.’ I got it and I said, ‘What a piece of s**t this is.’ He goes, ‘Ha ha ha!’
He shared with Fox & Friends that the movie, costarring “Golden Girls” actress Estelle Getty as the overbearing mother to Stallone’s character, was “one of those things that you go ‘why am I in this?’ There’s a scene they say ‘would you mind wearing diapers?’ I’m going to kill Arnold. I am going to find him and track him.”
But by then it was too late and Stallone was committed. “I realized ‘I’m in such a turkey and it’s not even Thanksgiving.’”
But Stallone — who now stars as aging mobster Dwight Manfredi in the new Paramount+ series “Tulsa King” — pointed out that his “Escape Plan” costar has had his own film fails, including 1994’s “Junior.” In the widely panned comedy, costarring Danny DeVito and Emma Thompson, Schwarzenegger plays a scientist who conceives a child in an experiment, ultimately giving birth to a baby girl.
“At least I wasn’t pregnant in a film, Arnold,” joked Stallone. “We’re even.”
