Book Description: "Stallone - A Rocky Life"
With his sculpted physique and brooding good looks, Sylvester Stallone remains the quintessential movie star. His love life has drawn as much attention as his $2 billion-grossing films--after a long-suffering first wife and a philandering second, his current spouse is a supermodel 25 years his junior. And between each marriage, he has courted a catwalk's worth of women straight from the covers of Vogue. Now, in this new biography--based on exclusive interviews with Stallone, his outspoken mother, his second wife, and a host of fellow celebrities and friends--this most private of public figures is revealed. Frank Sanello looks not only at Stallone's personal life, which fans will find as compelling as any of his action pictures, but also at his film career, from cartoon icon to failed comic actor to his latest incarnation as overweight anti-hero in the critically acclaimed "Cop Land." A thoughtful, highly engaging portrait. Frank Sanello has written biographies of Sharon Stone, Tom Cruise, Eddie Murphy, Will Smith, and Steven Spielberg. A former film critic for the Los Angeles Daily News, his work has also appeared in The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and People.
