Sylvester Stallone Shuns Viagra

Sylvester Stallone is adamant he won't succumb to using sex-aid drug Viagra, because he's happy with his wife Jennifer Flavin.

The 64-year-old Rambo star insists no man should need to use pills to help their sex life if they have an attractive lover "unless you're jet-lagged," adding, "It's all about your partner, let's face it."

And the actor relies on his charm to woo women: "I'm a good flirt. I do flirt well. Not that I'm a great Casanova but I think women love clever banter, not just saying, 'Let's go to my house and get naked.' Maybe later but have a joke around first."


Sylvester Stallone Made No Money From 'Rocky Balboa'

Sylvester Stallone is glad his sixth Rocky movie salvaged his film career - but he made no money from the film's $200 million profit.

The Hollywood legend boosted his dwindling popularity by revisiting his most famous franchise for a final installment, Rocky Balboa, in 2006. The bold move worked, and he went on to make a fourth Rambo film in 2008 before teaming up with fellow big-screen action men Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke for new movie The Expendables.

And Stallone is adamant making the 2006 boxing picture was a wise decision - even though he has not banked any of the film's enorm...

Sylvester Stallone Says Stunt Injuries Are A 'Good Omen'

Action man Sylvester Stallone is convinced getting hurt on a movie set is a "good omen," because all the films which have left him with serious injuries have done well at the box office.

The 64-year-old Hollywood star has never been afraid to perform death-defying stunts in his blockbusters, because taking health risks has always paid off. He tells Maxim magazine, "It's a good omen. Every film I've done where I got injured has turned out great. Rocky II was 60 stitches; Rocky III was a concussion; the last Rambo was a bruised artery. Ones where I come out unscathed? Disasters."

After 19 Years, 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' Phenomenally Exhumes Venerated Roots

Indiana Jones
( – After such a long respite from the beloved film progression, I was initially just as skittish about seeing Harrison Ford back in the Indy saddle as I was watching Sylvester Stallone back in the ring in “Rocky Balboa” in his 2006 comeback and then again in 2008 in his “Rambo” return.

Ultimately, though, I had faith in director Steven Spielberg not to royally torpedo the monolithically anticipated “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” which resurrects the Chicago-born, 65-year-old Harrison Ford as one of my favorite film characters of all time.

Oldies But Goodies: Older Stars Who Keep On Acting

Everyone basically accepts that the entertainment biz is youth oriented. But in spite of the Hollywood bias, there are some older actors who keep at it. Below is a top 10 list of older folks who are still making it in showbiz (and we dare say these actors could teach Hollywood's current young whippersnappers a thing or two about how to have a long career).

10. Ellen Albertini Dow, age 89.

What's that? Her name doesn't ring a bell? Well, trust us, you know who she is. She had to make our list because at almost 90 Ellen is still lining up project after project. With her cute voice, b...

Movies That Will Probably Suck In 2008

1/21/2008 11:20am EST
The Eye
Movies are awesome. Sometimes, however, a movie isn't awesome. Sometimes it should never have been made, and you shouldn't go see it (because it's a waste of money or you just want to protest). These movies have a high suckitude value, and this should serve as a warning to you all. If you still go and see them, that's your problem. The "Suck Scale" runs from 1-5, with 5 being amazingly bad.

Meet the Spartans

The spoof genre was funny once. Scary Movie was new, fresh and gave a new spin on satire. It proved to movie makers that if they insisted on producing garbage, that garbage would...
