Sylvester Stallone - Sylvester Stallone dismisses talk of falling out with Bruce Willis

Sylvester Stallone has dismissed reports he's had a falling out with Bruce Willis.

Relations between the Hollywood heavyweights were reported to have soured after Willis was omitted from the cast of 'The Expendables 3', which was released earlier this summer.

Willis' spot was taken by 'Indiana Jones' star Harrison Ford, but Stallone insists there are no hard feelings between the two.

He said: ''That happens in film and casting. It's nothing personal. It sounded like it got personal and I'm sorry it did sound that way. But it was actors talking and things move on.

''I think Bruce Willis is a great guy and he does fantastically entertaining films and when he nails it, he nails it big time.''

Stallone, 68, also spoke about his friendship with fellow action star Harrison Ford, which was fostered when they were both struggling actors in the late 1970s.

The star of 'Rocky' explained: ''Both of us would be wondering how long this acting was gonna last. Actually we became very, very close ... Harrison is a very insulated, intelligent and very funny, very witty, dry humorist. When you tap into that, it's great.''
