#Quote
1[on the character of Rocky] It's odd - I don't know if it's the first time in the cinema, but it's like I have to live up to the ethics of a fictional character. The identification is so close that I had to stop smoking 'cause people were so offended. They'd say, 'You aren't in training? Rocky wouldn't smoke...' I find it to be so fascinating now. I have been so rewarded by the character. I can't bite the hand that feeds me. It's a fact of life; it's something that I'll always be judged against. Every film I do is going to be judged against "Rocky." It's a fact. I can't fight it anymore.
2I was taken off the streets and put into the limos and then groomed and pushed out in poster sales and advertising sporting equipment and whatever... It just kept building and building - I thought everybody liked me; this is the thing to do. Success is like a jet stream; it just sucks you along.
3I am an artistic businessman, both. I think you have to be. It's a matter of self-preservation.
4Steven Seagal said that he, 'Didn't associate with that kind of element' - meaning me. So I slammed him up against a wall. At that time, our testosterone was running full bore. He was full of his height and I was full of... Myself. But we made up. He can be very abstract.
5[on The Expendables 3 (2014)] I believe we finally got it right in the third one - kind of like marriage.
6People think it's easy to make a sequel. It's not, because you've lost the element of surprise. How do you keep putting on layers without getting too pretentious or trying too hard - you know, when in doubt, shout.
7[on The Expendables 3 (2014)] We're trying to make an Event Movie - like The Avengers (2012). And I think we've accomplished it.
8[on casting The Expendables 3 (2014) and possible future Expendables movies] I was going to go call up Jack Nicholson and we just got there a little too late, because actually he had said he might be interested in it. So there are still interesting avenues out there. I want to get, if possible, the most unique actors from the past and just put 'em out there once and for all, you know? It just seems like an interesting... quest to do that, because I don't know if it's ever going to happen again. And we're certainly not getting any younger. Well, you know Clint Eastwood is so involved with what he's doing, so that's kind of a pipe dream.
9[advice to actors who are training to appear as boxers in a musical version of 'Rocky'] The hardest thing to do is to sell the punch. You can teach a guy to punch, but the person receiving it has to have the body movement. It starts with the feet, the swiveling of the ankles, the knees and the hips, and then the head goes last. If you just throw punches using your arms it looks like flailing.
10[on working with Robert De Niro on Grudge Match (2013)] He was much more of a fearless actor early on. I'm doing Rocky (1976) and the next theatre over it's Taxi Driver (1976) - he was there with the mohawk, bloody nose, that took some guts to do. I really admire that he just wants to keep going. It was great working with Bobby because he's the complete antithesis of who I am. He's modest, he's quiet, he's reserved and I learned a lot from him.
11I turned down Witness (1985), which was great because I've never had a love affair with an Amish chick!
12Every time I use social media I get really in trouble! I think George Clooney said it best when he said you've got to be an idiot to be a celebrity and use Twitter. You wake up in the morning when you're sober and your career is over! You've got to be really, really careful. You think you're a genius up there in the middle of the night and you wake up an idiot.
13[on gun control] I know people get upset and go, 'They're going to take away the assault weapon'. But who needs an assault weapon? Like really, unless you're carrying out an assault. You can't hunt with it. Who is going to attack your house - an army?
14[on the possibility of Mel Gibson directing The Expendables 3 (2014)] Mel is a magnificent director! Pure passion on every level. We'd be blessed to have him. A real long shot, but life is a long shot - right?
15[on First Blood (1982)] In the book, Rambo gets killed. I thought it was not the proper message. There had been close to 200,000 suicides by returning Vietnam vets. I said, "Why don't we take him right to the edge without annihilating him?" Quentin Tarantino said, "You're a coward, you should have killed him!" I said, "Quentin, you're a lunatic. I want to do some sequels, brother."
16Regular artists borrow, geniuses steal.
17Rambo is me before coffee in the morning. Rocky is me after coffee. Rambo has reverted into kind of like an id: primitive, reactive and instinctual - almost like an animal. I love this character because because he hasn't quite been fleshed out. He's like an errant knight, looking to die in a glorious fashion. He has no desire to go into old age or have a family. Rocky is the antithesis: he cannot live without a family. So you've got the American Frankenstein monster, then you have the American dream.
18I like a good adversary. It makes you lose sleep and want to get up on the morning and go to the gym.
19[on Rocky (1976)] It's a film I wanted to go to. It's an audience's inalienable right, when they go to a theater, to see something truly extraordinary, something that borders on day-dreamism.
20Halloween is the only time people can become what they want to be without getting fired.
21Doing The Expendables (2010) was brutal; no time, no rest and more difficult then the last three Rambos put together.
22Being ignorant is like getting dressed for Prom Night in the dark. You think you are looking good until somebody turns your lights on.
23You have to grab life by the throat and squeeze before it grabs you by your neck and breaks it. Own your destiny.
24If politicians really told the truth they'd be fired and Washington would be an overgrown parking lot. Sad but true.
25[on Arnold Schwarzenegger] When people ask me who is the most extraordinary guy I've ever met, I answer that it's him. Think about it - the force of will and the fact that he is successful in three diverse and impossibly difficult areas. The politics of bodybuilding? Forget about it. And he was and is the most influential bodybuilder who ever lived, by far. Then, in Hollywood, with his background of being Austrian and all this baggage of not being American, and he became No. 1. And then politics, it's off-the-chart hard, he's the governor of California. That's all, just the governor of the biggest state in population. This is not some city council somewhere. And he would make it as a presidential candidate. It's mind-blowing.
26I eat healthy Monday to Friday, pig out on the weekend, gain pounds, then lose it again Monday to Friday. No need to starve, or suffer!
27Exercise, I tell people, can kill you. It's double-edged. It's good for you but you've got to know what you're doing. Your joints become fragile after a certain point. When you're 20, they're like rubber. But now...there's no way I can do the old squats and stuff. No way. Can't do it.
28[on Rocky Balboa (2006)] I haven't seen a dime yet. It made nearly $200 million. That's life, eh? That's how it works these days. They have this thing called 'back end' You can make a movie for $12 million that makes $250 million, but it still ends up in the red. The studios say they added $50 million in publicity in the Ukraine or somewhere, and you're like, 'What?'
29[on wanting Arnold Schwarzenegger for The Expendables (2010) sequel] I would love to get him in the next one. I really think so. He's been out of the limelight a long time, and I think this is the kind of film that would be a nice intro. I saw his eyes light up. It's one thing to run a state, but it's another thing to get back to what you're really known for. Certain actors you're never going to see come down the pike again, and he's one of them.
30I'm past my prime in doing dramatic films, I think it becomes maybe, almost a pathetic cry out to be recognized as a serious actor. I did my little moment. I'm very proud of the drama in Rocky Balboa (2006), its about as deep as I can go, and Cop Land (1997). I would much rather just direct dramas.
31[on being asked about themes in his movies at a press conference] I always try to deal with redemption. I think everyone in this room like everyone on the planet has regret, that one moment when they made the wrong decision, sometimes you just never get your life back on course, and that theme from Rocky Balboa to Rambo, it just haunts me.
32I've made a lot of career mistakes - a lot! Sometimes you're making a film and you go, 'It's a turkey and it's not even Thanksgiving.' It's bad.
33The one thing in my films... I only kill people that need to be killed. Let me put it this way, the ones that deserve it get it and they get it good and the ones that go after women really get it, you know what I mean? Really get it.
34[on his 1980s rivalry with Arnold Schwarzenegger] He was far more diligent than me; I was too reckless. He's very machine-like and I did consider him an enemy. But, looking back, it was a good enemy.
35[on a shocking ad-lib by Bruce Willis in the scene with Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Expendables (2010)] He goes, 'Why don't you just suck each other's c**ks?' I thought, 'You can't tell Rambo and The Terminator to suck each other's c**ks!' I said to the guys, 'You know what, that's worth the price of admission alone!'
36People that spend time in a foxhole - they're never going to find that relationship anywhere else again...everything else pales next to that. When you think about the second World War vets - more than even the Vietnam vets - there's a brotherhood. They're 90 years old now, and they're still wearing the hats. The way they feel about each other. Time stopped. That was the ultimate of life. Everything after it was anticlimactic. After that it just wasn't the same.
37[on his failed audition for a part in The Godfather (1972)] I couldn't even be an extra at the wedding, that's how far down the food chain I was.
38[on his screen test for the part of Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)] It didn't meet with much approval since when I stood in front of George Lucas he didn't look at me once. Well, obviously I'm not the right type... It all worked out for the best since I don't look good in spandex holding a ray gun!
39[on Dolph Lundgren]: Dolph, I think, is a fantastically cooperative, excellent guy.
40I made some truly awful movies. Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot (1992) was the worst. If you ever want someone to confess to murder just make him or her sit through that film. They will confess to anything after 15 minutes.
41[on Rambo] He'd murder Jason Bourne. I'm only kidding. Maybe the other guy...the one in The Transporter (2002), Jason Statham.
42[on Arnold Schwarzenegger] I see him every Saturday, at Café Roma in Beverly Hills. It's funny because we used to be so competitive in the Eighties and now we're the best buddies in the world.
43I have become more cynical as I have got older. Everything you were promised as a young person, it doesn't really come true.
44I am under pressure to perform. If I didn't have this goal I would be more than happy to throw 25 croissants down my throat and wash it down with a pint of beer, trust me. It is very, very hard to stay in shape.
45[on retiring from acting] I'm on borrowed time. At this age I hear the ticking clock and it's as loud as the gong on Big Ben. The ultimate ambition is to follow in Clint Eastwood's footsteps and move on to directing films without me having to be in them. I'm on borrowed time and know my longevity will be predicated on being able to make that move.
46[on working with Richard Gere on The Lord's of Flatbush (1974)] Gere would strut around in his oversized motorcycle jacket like he was the baddest knight at the round table. (Having lunch in a Toyota) I was eating a hot dog and he climbs in with a half a chicken covered in mustard with grease nearly dripping out of the aluminum wrapper. I said, 'That thing is going to drip all over the place.' He said, 'Don't worry about it.' I said, 'If it gets on my pants you're gonna know about it.' He proceeds to bite into the chicken and a small, greasy river of mustard lands on my thigh. I elbowed him in the side of the head and basically pushed him out of the car. The director had to make a choice: one of us had to go, one of us had to stay. Richard was given his walking papers, and to this day, seriously dislikes me. He even thinks I'm the individual responsible for the gerbil rumor. Not true, but that's the rumor.
47[on Rocky IV (1985)] Dolph Lundgren and I always went for it. I gave him orders to try to knock me out while the cameras were rolling. At one point, he hit me so hard on the head I felt my spine compress. He then hit me with an almighty uppercut. That night my chest started to swell, and I had to be helicopter-ambulanced from my hotel to a nearby emergency room. I was told that Dolph had punched my rib cage into my chest, compressing my heart. If it had swollen any more, I would have died. After that, I was like, 'Dolph, it's only a movie, bro.'
48[on The Expendables (2010)] Man, it was seven guys, kicking each other's a**, one guy tougher than the next. No joke, our stunt guys were begging for mercy. Actually, my fight with Stone Cold Steve Austin was so vicious that I ended up getting a hairline fracture in my neck. I'm not joking. I haven't told anyone this, but I had to have a very serious operation afterwards. I now have a metal plate in my neck.
49[on filming his scene in The Expendables (2010) with pals Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger] Bruce's character, who hires me to do the job the film's based on, turns to me and says, 'Look, there's one person I need to talk with before I give you the job.' At which point Arnold, who plays my oldest rival, walks out. And it's clear we have a lot of history there. So I tell him I should have shot him a long time ago when I had the chance. And the scene goes from there. But man, those guys were up for it. They got out of bed at 5.30am just to shoot a small five-minute scene.
50[on Arnold Schwarzenegger] He's my best friend now. It's strange, given what big rivals we used to be. He's still ridiculously competitive, though. See this watch? This is the only one of its kind in the world, so I wore it to our last lunch. Arnold was desperate for me to get him one but I had to explain that wasn't possible. He was so mad!
51[on the difference between filmmaking and painting] Movies are a vision dependent upon 300 or 400 people to accomplish it. So there's great compromising. And so much is lost in the translation. So when you get up there, it's maybe 40% of the way you envisaged it. Because of the finance thing, and the actor doesn't interpret it properly. Or the director isn't on form that day and he missed the whole point. Whereas painting is all you do. It either soars or it crashes. There's no one to blame but one person.
5295% of the time, women are right. They can be emotional, but when they say your shoes are shit or your tie is wrong, they're often right.
53[on the character of Rocky Balboa] I have always seen him as a 20th Century gladiator in a pair of sneakers.
54The trouble with remakes is that people fall in love with the original. It's like peanut butter. If you try to change the taste of peanut butter, you're in trouble.
55[on The Expendables (2010)] I guess it's kinda like The Dirty Dozen (1967), or one of those films that comes along every once in a while, like The Magnificent Seven (1960), to try to take that old formula and move it into a modern era. We accomplished it; I'm very, very happy with the film.
56The whole thing about Rocky (1976) wasn't about him boxing. It was about aging -- that was what made the movie. It wasn't him. It was about her -- him finding love, him making someone's life better -- and, before you know it, the audience identified with it.
57[on what fans can expect from The Expendables (2010)] Let's say we dug up The Wild Bunch (1969) and gave them one more shot.
58[on Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler (2008)] Mickey, if anybody deserves an Oscar, it's you. No question about it. You lived it. You earned it. You deserve it. You're an incredibly talented man. It's about time everyone says, 'You know what? Give it to the winner.'
59[at Rambo UK Premiere, 2008) I feel like I'm 20 again - but with arthritis!
60During Rocky IV (1985), Dolph Lundgren had hit me so hard I had swelling around the heart and had to stay in intensive care at St. John's Hospital for four days.
61Making Victory (1981) (aka Escape to Victory) was hard work. I thought "Rocky" was tough, but I'd never trained so hard in my life. My waist went down from 33 to 29 inches; I ran every morning, because I was trying to look a little gaunt. We were POWs, after all.
62Rocky gives out such a good vibe, while Rambo's the Prince of Darkness. The new Rambo is not a feelgood movie. Every actor would like to say that they're Daniel Day-Lewis and that they have this incredible palette, but quite often you're known for certain things. I accepted that. So I said to myself, "Boy, if I could end my career on something, I'd like to finish up the loose ends on Rambo, because the last one in Afghanistan didn't work."
63I'm often asked whether Rocky is an extension of myself. But the truth is I wish I could be as noble as Rocky. He never says a bad word about anyone, and he never complains. He's lost 24 times, his record is 54 and 24, he's lost a lot but he's philosophical and knows there will be another day. I'm not that. I wish I were.
64If I have a regret, it's that I didn't expand my acting when I was building my career. It often sounds pathetic when you hear actors say that they feel sorry for themselves - I've been very very blessed, believe me - but if I had to do it all over again I could have done both. You can do commercial films and then do small, independent, acting films. Bruce Willis has done it well, so it's possible. I wish I had done it, but that wasn't the style back then. You were either a studio actor or an independent actor. So I regret that.
65I look back on Judge Dredd (1995) as a real missed opportunity. It seemed that lots of fans had a problem with Dredd removing his helmet, because he never does in the comic books. But, for me, it is more about wasting such great potential there was in that idea... it didn't live up to what it could have been. It probably should have been much more comic, really humourous, and fun. What I learned out of that experience was that we shouldn't have tried to make it "Hamlet", it's more "Hamlet & Eggs".
66There's something about matching the character with the script. And right now, the script that's being written, and reality, is pretty brutal and pretty hard-edged, like a rough action film, and you need somebody who's been in that to deal with it. - On Senator John McCain.
67[speaking of his life with a wife and three daughters] Living in a house where you are the only man is a little like being the only guy left at The Alamo. They just rule. Even our dogs are female. So there is no chance.
68I never had extraordinary genes or great bone structure, and I'm still very thin. What I try to do is create a body that every man can look at and say, "You know, with a certain amount of dedication I can achieve the same thing." I try to keep it in the realm of athletic, rather than unapproachable.
69I abused my body so much throughout my career that I am literally held together by glue. The stuff I took thickens the bones and reinforces the tendons.
70[on Rhinestone (1984)] You'd have thought we all got together and decided how we could fastest ruin our careers.
71I'm now starting Rambo (2008) and I'm looking for a young actor to star opposite me. I've been looking for the next Robert Mitchum or Steve McQueen, but the fact is they just don't exist. Tough guys today are getting their hair done at Hollywood hairdressers. Whatever happened to having a beer and scratching your balls?
72[on Rocky Balboa (2006) and Rambo (2008)] Maybe these movies wouldn't have been as interesting five years ago, but look what's happened in the world in that time. It's a whole different climate, now.
73[on Rocky Balboa (2006)] I knew I would go through the embarrassment of hearing all the jokes about me. My wife begged me not to do it, and that's why I wrote a line . . . that I'd rather do something I love badly than to feel bad about not doing something I love.
74You wake up one morning and you go, "What happened? Where did it all go so fast? There are many more things I want to do." And I figure a lot of people feel the same. A lot of people have so much they want to do, but society says, "Step back, youth must be served." I say, "You're right, youth must be served - after us. Get in line. We're coming back for seconds and thirds, and when we're finished helping ourselves, it's your turn." Just because people get older doesn't mean they abandon their dream or their ability to want to do something, so Rocky is symbolic of still wanting to participate. Rocky says the last thing to age is the heart, so I wanted to do a film that shows our generation is not on the outside looking in; it's still vital and wants to be part of the parade, not watching the parade. I want to show that life is not over at 50. People say, "Come on, grow old gracefully." No, why? I'm not ready. I know people will think Rocky is my story, but it's also my generation's story.
75I enjoy comedy very much, but it just wasn't right for me. Sometimes it's better to just stay focused and do what you're really passionate about.
76I think the people who have been so supportive and loyal will be happy with the final chapter in Rocky Balboa's life because I think we bring the character to a final and noble conclusion.
77[on his marriage to Jennifer Flavin] It's been a fantastic revival of my life. As you know, my first marriage didn't go so well, though I have a relationship with my sons, but this marriage has been a second beginning. I used to think my career was number one, so I was gone nine months out of a year, but I learned the hard way that the most important thing is that you start at home and then comes the career.
78No one likes to fail at anything, but I believe I'm a better person for it. I learned life's lessons. You're given certain gifts and that's what you should try to be.
79I'd say between 3 pm and 8 pm I look great. After that it's all downhill. Don't photograph me in the morning or you're gonna get Walter Brennan.
80All art, in this business, is a matter of compromise. It's not one man's vision unless he takes very weak actors.
81I really am a manifestation of my own fantasy.
82I know I cannot hold on to them forever, but I will as long as I can. I pity the first boy to knock on the door for a date. I'm gonna buy ten more Rambo outfits just to make sure they're too scared to put a foot wrong. They will probably all run a mile, which suits me just fine. I know I won't be able to help myself playing the worried dad. My girls were born with the flirt gene. It's very funny, but it also worries me about what a handful I will have in a few years time. I know it's stupid - I just don't want them to grow up. I love my family. I can't imagine life without them all in the house.
83[1999] After I made Cop Land (1997) in which I played a timid, overweight cop, all of Hollywood turned their back. I'm surprised they even gave me this table. I'm like driftwood in here.
84I'm a very physical person. People don't credit me with much of a brain, so why should I disillusion them?
85I'll just go on playing Rambo and Rocky. Both are money-making machines that can't be switched off.
86[2002] We're talking about doing another Rambo because I think it's time to combine action with politics.
87I'm not a genetically superior person. I built my body.
88[Following John Ritter's death in 2003] It's a huge shock. It just makes me realize how fragile life is.
89People accept Rocky Balboa as authentic. I can't tell you how many people have come up to me and asked about my boxing career. It's like they really want to believe that Rocky exists. You know, I'm amazed by all of this. At one time I thought people would get over their fascination with the character and move on. Didn't happen. After 30 years, Rocky has taken hold to a degree I never could have imagined.
90[1991] I'm 5'10" and weigh 177 pounds. I'm pleased with my body now.
91I had no idea Ellen Barkin was in the restaurant. If she was coughing or dying, she was doing it politely. I would have been more than happy to reach down her throat or squeeze her hard. Sat there dumbfounded? Please! I would have rallied round - just to avoid paying the bill.
92[Talking about the proliferation of guns in the U.S., following the murder of Phil Hartman in 1998, who was shot to death by his wife] Until America, door to door, takes every handgun, this is what you're gonna have. It's pathetic. It really is pathetic. It's sad. We're living in the Dark Ages over there. It has to be stopped, and someone really has to go on the line, a certain dauntless political figure, and say, "It's ending, it's over, all bets are off." It's not 200 years ago, we don't need this any more, and the rest of the world doesn't have it. Why should we?
93[on Arnold Schwarzenegger's campaign for Governor of California in 2003] I think it's very dangerous waters. In that particular field you can't yell "Action!" and "Cut!" and "Take two!" and "Take three!". I personally think actors should remain actors, but I know he's always had blind ambition for that, so maybe it'll work out for him.
94I'm not right wing, I'm not left wing. I love my country.
95[In 1976, after completing production on Rocky II (1979)] But there'll never be a "Rocky IV." You gotta call a halt.
96[Explaining to The New York Times how he wrote the script for Rocky (1976) in three days] I'm astounded by people who take 18 years to write something. That's how long it took that guy [Gustave Flaubert] to write "Madame Bovary". And was that ever on the best-seller list? No. It was a lousy book and it made a lousy movie.
97I'm not handsome in the classical sense. The eyes droop, the mouth is crooked, the teeth aren't straight, the voice sounds like a Mafioso pallbearer, but somehow it all works.
98That's what Rocky (1976) is all about: pride, reputation, and not being another bum in the neighborhood.
99Once in one's life, for one mortal moment, one must make a grab for immortality; if not, one has not lived.
