Once in one's life, for one mortal moment, one must make a grab for immortality; if not, one has not lived.
That's what Rocky is all about: pride, reputation, and not being another bum in the neighborhood. I'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.
That's how long it took that guy [ Gustave Flaubert ] to write "Madame Bovary". And was that ever on the best-seller list? It was a lousy book and it made a lousy movie.
In that particular field you can't yell "Action! 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.
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.
Why should we? I 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? I would have rallied round - just to avoid paying the bill. I'm pleased with my body now.
People 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. It just makes me realize how fragile life is.
I'll just go on playing Rambo and Rocky. Both are money-making machines that can't be switched off. I'm a very physical person.
People don't credit me with much of a brain, so why should I disillusion them? I'm surprised they even gave me this table.
I'm like driftwood in here. I 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. All art, in this business, is a matter of compromise.
It's not one man's vision unless he takes very weak actors. I'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. No 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. 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.
I 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.
I 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.
You 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. A lot of people have so much they want to do, but society says, "Step back, youth must be served.
Get in line. We're coming back for seconds and thirds, and when we're finished helping ourselves, it's your turn. 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 People say, "Come on, grow old gracefully. I'm not ready. I know people will think Rocky is my story, but it's also my generation's story.
My wife begged me not to do it, and that's why I wrote a line. It's a whole different climate, now.
I'm now starting Rambo 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? I 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. I 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.
They just rule. Even our dogs are female. So there is no chance. There'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.
I look back on Judge Dredd 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 probably should have been much more comic, really humourous, and fun.
If 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. I'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. Rocky 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.
Making Victory 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. John's Hospital for four days. 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. The whole thing about Rocky 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.
We accomplished it; I'm very, very happy with the film. The 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. They can be emotional, but when they say your shoes are shit or your tie is wrong, they're often right.
So there's great compromising. And so much is lost in the translation. 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. 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! 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. 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. 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.
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. 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. 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.
I 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. I have become more cynical as I have got older. Everything you were promised as a young person, it doesn't really come true.
It's funny because we used to be so competitive in the Eighties and now we're the best buddies in the world.
I'm only kidding. Maybe the other guy I made some truly awful movies. Or My Mom Will Shoot 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.
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!
People that spend time in a foxhole - they're never going to find that relationship anywhere else again 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.
He's very machine-like and I did consider him an enemy. But, looking back, it was a good enemy.
The 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. I'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.
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.
I'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 would much rather just direct dramas. 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. That's life, eh?
That's how it works these days. Exercise, 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 No way. Can't do it. I 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! 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. 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. If politicians really told the truth they'd be fired and Washington would be an overgrown parking lot.
Sad but true. You have to grab life by the throat and squeeze before it grabs you by your neck and breaks it. Own your destiny.
Being ignorant is like getting dressed for Prom Night in the dark. You think you are looking good until somebody turns your lights on.
Doing The Expendables was brutal; no time, no rest and more difficult then the last three Rambos put together. Halloween is the only time people can become what they want to be without getting fired.
It's an audience's inalienable right, when they go to a theater, to see something truly extraordinary, something that borders on day-dreamism.
I like a good adversary. It makes you lose sleep and want to get up on the morning and go to the gym. Rambo 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. I thought it was not the proper message. There had been close to , suicides by returning Vietnam vets.
I said, "Why don't we take him right to the edge without annihilating him? I want to do some sequels, brother. Pure passion on every level.
We'd be blessed to have him. A real long shot, but life is a long shot - right? 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?
Every 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.
I turned down Witness , which was great because I've never had a love affair with an Amish chick! I'm doing Rocky and the next theatre over it's Taxi Driver - 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. You can teach a guy to punch, but the person receiving it has to have the body movement.
It starts with the feet, the swivelling 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. 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 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.
And I think we've accomplished it. People 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.
Steven 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 But we made up.
He can be very abstract. I am an artistic businessman, both. I think you have to be. It's a matter of self-preservation.
I 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. 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 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. I didn't know anybody so I was sort of in the corner, feeling very awkward.
He walked over and said, "I'd like to introduce myself. My name is John Wayne. I saw your film, and you were very good. I felt like I knew exactly what those guys were feeling at night.
Incredible dedication. Joel Edgerton , those were real performances. I think that the way it was positioned was, just a fight film.
I was taken aback by how good they were. I think if people had seen it in a Cain and Abel context, it might have been perceived as more of a cautionary tale rather than just a fight film.
What had happened is, he didn't quite agree with the subject matter on the second one and just said, "I don't want to do it.
Why not direct it. Paradise Alley hadn't come out yet. I started directing Rocky II and decided to work backwards, doing the fight first.
So I'm directing that and we move to Philadelphia, and I'm nervous because, how can I come close to Rocky, as a director, but I'm trying.
Paradise Alley comes out, and I go to see it during lunch and there are four people in the theater. In Philadelphia, of all places.
I went "Oh my God. It didn't work out that badly for Paradise Alley, but my confidence was at an all-time low that day, and I had to tell myself, just keep punching.
Again, a film that didn't find an audience, but I thought Rutger Hauer was incredible. Maybe it was that urban terrorism wasn't perceived as a serious threat then, and they said, "Well, this so far-fetched," but I liked that film a lot.
That was a tough movie. We shot nights, like 40 in a row. The shoot lived up to its title. I had pushed a little too far and had an erratic heartbeat.
So I said, maybe I should do a film that I can have pancakes and French Toast every morning and not stay on a treadmill for hours a day.
That was Cop Land This was such a blessing, and I enjoyed it so much. If I could have stayed there, I would have.
I loved doing ensemble work with Mangold and Harvey Weinstein really made a solid film. Creed has left me with the same good feeling.
I think that there's a preconceived notion that an action film is a mindless exercise in visual dexterity. Quite often, they're right.
But when you do it in a proper way, say like The Bourne Identity , it's really intriguing, isn't it? You're able to combine all the different skill sets, acting, visual, and the kinetic energy.
But it doesn't happen very often, and when you hear the word, "Action," you say, "Okay, the guy really can't act; all he can do is be very, very physical," In a sense you are considered more of an empty vessel.
I get that just comes with the territory, and that if you stick around too long, it becomes kind of your epithet.
The best thing about getting older is There's zero good in getting older. I love Donald Trump. He's a great Dickensian character.
You know what I mean? There are certain people like Arnold, Babe Ruth , that are bigger than life. But I don't know how that translates to running the world.
I've always thought of Rocky as an individual that was chosen to take a journey that would bring together many "broken" people, including himself, and this group would achieve success because of their newfound self-respect.
Good old-fashioned Christian values, nothing wrong with that. Judge Dredd From what I recall, the whole project was troubled from the beginning.
The philosophy of the film was not set in stone - by that I mean "Is this going to be a serious drama or with comic overtones" like other science fiction films that were successful?
So a lotta pieces just didn't fit smoothly. It was sort of like a feathered fish. Some of the design work on it was fantastic and the sets were incredibly real, even standing two feet away, but there was just no communication.
I knew we were in for a long shoot when, for no explainable reason Danny Cannon , who's rather diminutive, jumped down from his director's chair and yelled to everyone within earshot, "FEAR me!
Everyone should FEAR me! The British crew was taking bets on his life expectancy. Asked if he'd ever play a villain I wouldn't be opposed to playing a truly horrific individual.
God knows I saw enough of that growing up. The thing is Maybe a remake of When Harry Beat Sally. On writing controversies First of all, as for Chuck Wepner , he knows the truth and it had nothing do to do with his "personal life.
Second of all, I suppose James Cameron has a point, but in his original draft it took nearly pages to have any action initiated and Rambo was partnered with a tech-y sidekick.
So it was more than just politics that were put into the script. There was also a simpler story line. If James Cameron says anything more than that, then he realizes he's now doing the backstroke badly in a pool of lies.
And finally, Joe Eszterhas wrote a script that was nearly pages and was more of a novel than a shootable screenplay. A great deal of work was done by myself, along with Norman Jewison, to hammer it into shape, but Joe had conceived a great concept.
