Sylvester Stallone was nominated for his first Oscar back in 1976 for his performance in Rocky, but his teenage daughters don’t see their famous dad as a renowned actor. In fact, they haven’t even seen his films!
“I used to do this for a living, but they won’t watch my videos,” he told reporters at the Oscar Nominee Luncheon on Monday.
But all of that changed when Stallone reprised his role as Rocky Balboa in the 2015 film, Creed. The film opened to rave reviews, earning Stallone a spot once again on the Oscar ballot. And finally his daughters have taken notice.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled that my daughters actually look at me now as an actor and not a bad golfer,” he said. Stallone expressed his gratitude to still have opportunities in Hollywood 40 years after he bust onto the scene, and he’s certainly been making the most of this awards season.
We’re sure this isn’t the last we’ll see of this iconic star.
