There aren’t many actors who are more of a symbol of manhood than Sylvester Stallone.
From Rocky, to Rambo, and leading The Expendables, Stallone exemplifies traditional masculine toughness.
But Sylvester Stallone shocked fans with this secret about his past that he revealed in his new tell all documentary.
Where have the men gone in Hollywood?
Like everything else, Hollywood has gotten completely soft.
The big screen used to be filled with people like Clint Eastwood and John Wayne, who just looked the part and had a record to prove that they were real men.
Now with today’s movies, male actors are either gay or they should be gay by how frail they look on the big screen.
Just think about it.
Who is the biggest and baddest actor in Hollywood today?
Odds are anyone you would name is either over 40 years old or a phony who couldn’t punch their way out of a wet paper bag.
It’s been a few decades since we had an A list actor to pick who really was Macho man.
Back in the ’70s and ’80s, America was blessed with Sylvester Stallone as Rocky captivated America in its debut in 1976.
The unknown actor had his name to fame with the Rocky franchise, and he has proven himself to be a symbol of manhood in the United States.
Stallone shares an inspirational story about his slur
Stallone looks the part, he acts the part, he sounds the part, and he is a real man.
He has gone to do other iconic movie franchises, like Rambo.
You just can’t argue with the fact that Stallone is the real deal.
But even with Stallone’s fame, he rarely talks about his life before he became a household name.
So when he talks about his past and journey from rags to riches, people listen.
And Stallone just opened up with a story about his past and how he got his iconic slur and voice.
In his new Netflix documentary, Sly, he told a story about the day he was born that no one outside of his family had ever heard of before.
Stallone stated that even though his mom was nine months pregnant with him that “she kept riding around on the bus. And she [went] into labor.”
He continued by saying:
Somebody was smart enough to get her off the bus, then carried her into a charity ward. And that’s where I was brought into the world via this accident, which kind of paralyzed all the nerves on the side of my mouth. Discussing the partial paralysis, the actor said, “So I was born with this snarl.”
Stallone might not realize it but this is a very powerful message that many Americans need to hear.

No matter what disability someone is born with, they still have unimaginable worth and meaning.
If a baby is born with a disability parents shouldn’t disregard the baby or, as some would advocate for, push for a live abortion.
Instead, people need to let people with disabilities thrive to the best of their abilities and over time, they will impress their peers and make something of themselves.
