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."

Sylvester Stallone Sighting
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 actresses have done weird sexua ...

Sandra Bullock, Keanu Reeves and Jan de Bont look back at 'Speed' 20 years later

Jun 10 2014 11:20am CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

There's a bomb on a bus. Once the bus goes 50 miles an hour, the bomb is armed. If it drops below 50, it blows up. As movie premises go, this one is absolutely ridiculous, right? You'd have been forgiven for thinking so, at least, as few involved with Jan de Bont's "Speed," which was released by 20th Century Fox on June 10, 1994, could have anticipated its popularity. The film was a runaway hit, winning ...
