Rocky was released 45 years ago and is still just as powerful today. Like the muscled star of him, who was nominated for an Oscar for his screenplay. The starting slugger was increasingly pummeled on screen as the franchise progressed, but Stallone previously told a story that his Rocky IV co-star pummeled him so hard that he was hospitalized. “I got pulverized and I didn’t feel it at the time, but later that night my heart started to swell. I had bruised my pericardial sac, which is when your heart hits your chest, like in a car accident when your chest hits the steering wheel.” . wheel.”
Stallone added: “My blood pressure went up to 260. They thought I was going to be talking to angels… The next thing I know I’m on a low plane heading to the ER and I’m in intensive care.” care for four days. And there are all these nuns around.”
She confessed that she actually knew she was in trouble the first time she saw her co-star: “I had to find a superhuman being as an opponent, someone who was overwhelming… And then Dolph Lundgren came in, and I hated immediately. This is what made me I imagine they would create as an athlete: someone who is literally perfect. Indestructible. Shoulders, calves, forearms, giant butt, neck, back, everything.”
Lundgren played Rocky’s new Russian rival, Ivan Drago. The former Swedish bodyguard and martial arts expert was 11 years younger than his American co-star and 20 centimeters taller than him. And Stallone himself previously admitted that he caused the dangerous situation that put him on a stretcher.
Lundgren said: “We shoot those 15 rounds for two or three weeks, eight or 12 hours a day, so you’re throwing thousands of punches. If you don’t connect, it looks a little fake, but it doesn’t mean you want to hurt the other guy. But no there were resentments.”
But did he really find out that Stallone is in the hospital or not? The Swedish star added: “I don’t know. He keeps talking about it, so maybe he’s right.
“He went to the hospital, but I don’t know if it was my beating or the fact that I was so overworked as a director, actor and writer.”
The 64-year-old actor also clarified that Stallone may have “hated” how physically impressive Lundgren was, but he also used every directorial trick to make him look even bigger.
Lundgren told fans in The Guardian Q&A: “I’m taller than him, so it comes down to camera angles. A lot of times, they put me in a box. When I get to the press conference in my uniform, I have elevators. in my shoes.
“Stallone was smart to exaggerate the difference. Less talented actors would try to look bigger in front of the other guy, but he knew that by building up the opponent, he made them look better in the end.”
