Problems during his delivery.

Career in the cinema.

Stallone did not get fame until his protagonist role in the world-wide success Rocky in 1976. On March 24th, 1975, he saw the fight between Muhammad Ali and Chuck Wepner, a fight on which Rocky’s fundamental idea is based. The night of the fight, Stallone, inspired by the match, went directly to his house and, after three days, he had already written the script: he tried to sell it with the intention of interpreting the main role.

Although the producers liked the story, they had in mind an already consecrated star like Ryan O’Neal, Burt Reynolds or Robert Redford for the lead role; they even offered large sums of money for Stallone not to star in the film, but he rejected all offers until the studio allowed him to play the protagonist.

After the resounding, global success of the film, Stallone was thrown to fame and was considered as a dramatic protagonist. Rocky won the Oscar for Best Motion Picture, and he was also nominated for the Oscar for Best Actor and Oscar for Best Screenplay. In 2016, he was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for the movie Creed, a Rocky spin-off.
