It's Jack Whitehall V Sylvester Stallone In The Year's Most Bizarre Celeb Feud


Sylvester Stallone Jack Whitehall

One of the most bizarre and unlikely celebrity feuds of the year has emerged, with Sylvester Stallone hitting out at British comedian Jack Whitehall and accusing him of “distorting lies” after he recounting meeting the 69 year old star at the Oscars in February.

Speaking to The Mirror earlier this week, the 27 year old presenter and funnyman joked that he had cheered up Stallone after he had failed to win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor last month. Stallone had been hotly tipped to win, but lost out to Mark Rylance for his role in Bridge of Spies.

Sylvester Stallone has admitted he considered boycotting this year’s Academy Awards because of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. The Creed star is nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category, but his co-star Michael B. Jordan and the film’s director Ryan Coogler both missed out on nominations.

“Certainly, there is a universal law of existence. You either adapt or cease to exist. Adaptation and evolving were definitely necessary,” Stallone said when asked about the Academy’s new measures to diversify their membership (via Entertainment Weekly).

Creed Review

Extraordinary

While this film is basically Rocky VII, it's also much more than that, and perhaps the best in the series as it tells a standalone story with energy and skill. Reteaming writer-director Ryan Coogler with actor Michael B. Jordan after their underrated gem Fruitvale Station, this pulsing drama is also one of the best boxing movies in recent memory, harking back to classics in the genre while reinventing them with textured storytelling and raw performances.

Jordan plays Adonis, who never met his father, the iconic boxer Apollo Creed. He also refuses to take his surname, even after being adopted by Apollo's widow (Phylicia Rashad) and raised in a Los Angeles mansion with a great education. But he also can't resist the temptation to box, starting out in backroom Tijuana brawls. Finally he realises that something's got to give, so he heads to Philadelphia to explore his roots, meeting his father's former friend and rival Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) and asking him to teach him a few tricks to help further his career. But Rocky is battling his own issues, so these two mismatched men push each other forward. Adonis finds romance with the feisty Bianca (Thompson), and Rocky decides to help Adonis train to face the tough British champ (Tony Bellew).

The essence of this story is that we have to make peace with the past to move on to the future. This is woven into the script beautifully, without ever preaching, as Coogler encourages the audience to constantly see what's happening beneath the surface. This requires the actors to deliver unusually complex performances, and Jordan is wonderfully conflicted as a man whose inner nice guy is warring against his own history. Stallone, meanwhile, delivers one of his best performances ever as the sardonic, battered champion. He's relaxed and open, reminding us why we fell in love with Rocky to begin with.

Sylvester Stallone Eventually Thanks Ryan Coogler And Michael B. Jordan For 'Creed' Award


Sylvester Stallone Samuel L Jackson Ava DuVernay

Two days after he noticeably forgot to thank the director and lead actor of Creed when he won Best Supporting Actor at the Golden Globes, Sylvester Stallone has taken to social media to put right his omission and thank Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan.

On Sunday night, when he scooped his first ever Golden Globe, the 69 year old actor thanked a handful of people, including his agent, his wife and kids and his “best friend” Rocky Balboa (who he said he still has “conversations” with every night). However, he left out director Coogler, and the lead actor Michael B. Jordan, whose character Stallone trains in the boxing movie.

Michael B. Jordan Really Did Get Knocked Out While Filming 'Creed'


Sylvester Stallone

Creed star Michael B. Jordan has been maintaining throughout all the promotional work he’s done for his new movie that he’s not actually a boxer, but an actor. However, he sure does look convincing as a real-life pugilist, particularly in a new video posted by co-star Sylvester Stallone.

Stallone, 69, released a short clip on Twitter of Jordan warming up in the ring with English professional cruiserweight boxer Tony Bellew, who promptly unleashed a right hook and knocked Jordan unconscious – for real! Talk about suffering for your art.

Filming took place in Liverpool at the start of 2015, with Bellew playing Jordan’s English opponent ‘Pretty’ Ricky Conlan.
