Sylvester Stallone sold dog for $50

Jan 31 2013, 5:26am CST | by

Sylvester Stallone once sold his dog for $50 - then bought him back for $3,000.

The 'Bullet to the Head' actor was desperate for cash in the early days of his career, so put his beloved pooch up for sale - only to reacquire the hound after selling the script to his breakthrough film 'Rocky' just a week later.

He recalled: "I sold my bullmastiff Butkus to a little person. You can't use the word 'dwarf' any more? Let's just say a little person.

"I tied my dog up at the store with a sign that said a hundred bucks. I got $50 from this guy called Little Jimmy.

"When I sold the 'Rocky' script, I went to see Little Jimmy and begged for the dog back. He limed up his children, 'Oh my kids love the dog'. I said, 'You've only had him for a f***ing week.'

"He wanted to fight me and said he was gonna kill me - he was a crazy little person. I couldn't fight him - they'd arrest me - so I offered to pay double. Anyway, $3,000 and several threats later..."

The 66-year-old actor went on to cast Little Jimmy in 'Rocky'.

He explained to Shortlist magazine: "I ended up putting him in the movie. Do you remember in 'Rocky' where the little guy goes, 'Hey, did ya win?' and I go, 'What are you, deaf?' and he goes, 'No, I'm short.' That's him."

From A Father And Son, What It Means To Be A Military Man

Aug 20 2014 4:45pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Military service once defined the lives of many men in the United States, particularly before the end of the draft in 1973. But today, many younger adults have no direct family ties to the military at all. For the men in Mark and Jeremy Pierce's family, however, military service is a tradition dating back to the Civil War. "My father always taught us growing up that there's service to the community, service to the church and service to the country," says Mark, o ...

Celebs Who Have Done Weird Sex Acts Onscreen!

Jul 14 2014 11:10am CDT | Source: PerezHilton

Some movies imitate reality exactly! They're totally realistic and completely believable. Sometimes, however, they tend to stray far faaaaaaar away from what life is really like. Especially during sex scenes. Some times those get suuuuuper weird. Like when Sandra Bullock and Sylvester Stallone had sex by not touching each other AT ALL in the futuristic film Demolition Man in 1993. It was SO odd. Curious to see which other actors and ac ...
