Sylvester Stallone's 'Insane' Marriage

Sylvester Stallone thinks he was having an "out-of-body experience" when he married Brigitte Nielsen.

The 'Rocky' actor - who was married to the actress from 1985 until 1987 - admits he had a "temporary form of insanity" during their relationship.

Sylvester has been happily married to former model Jennifer Flavin since 1997, and the pair caught footage of his ex-lover when she appeared reality show 'Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew' in 2008 for problems with alcoholism.

He said: "I thought I was watching an old home movie. I sat on the sofa with Jennifer and of course, she pauses it and says: 'What were you thinking?' I go, 'I wasn't. It was an out-of-body experience. I've concluded that love is a temporary form of insanity and we should cut each other some slack.'

"I consider my life 10 per cent on target, and 90 per cent mistakes. But those 10 per cent counted."

Despite his past regrets, Sylvester is very settled with current spouse - who he has three daughters with - and has never been happier.

He explained to the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I've never had more fun. I learnt that from my wife. I never did learn it from any other relationship. In fact, just the opposite. It took me 19 years to realise she's always right. I realised that women have a knack, at least Jennifer, for making incredibly erudite, wise, smart decisions. I always leap without looking. She always looks and never leaps. She's incredibly safe. So now finally, I say: 'Honey, you make all the decisions. Done, done, done. I trust you.' I never had that before. Ever."

Sylvester also has two grown-up sons, Sage Moonblood and Seargeoh from his first marriage to Sasha Czack back in 1974.
