Sylvester Stallone reflected on injuries sustained during his acting career. He required a seventh surgery in 2010 after being slammed by pro wrestler Steve Austin while filming The Expendables, saying he never fully recovered physically.

Stallone had to get a metal plate in his neck and later spinal fusions and shoulder treatments.

Stallone said, “I did stupid stuff. I was directing ‘Expendables’ and like an idiot I’m doing take ten, take whatever, and I remember one slam and I could actually feel one ‘bang’. Steve knew.”

“I never recovered from Expendables 1. After that film, it was never physically the same. I’ve warned people — don’t do your own stunts,” he continued.

His wife said he tries to hide his pain from injuries and surgeries.

Jennifer Flavin, said, “He doesn’t like people to know he’s had so many back surgeries. It’s very scary for our family every time Sly has to go through surgery, because you never know . . . no one knows.”

Stallone’s daughter, Scarlet Rose, said, “My whole childhood, he’s been in pain. He did everything he could to push through the pain and be present but I couldn’t imagine every waking moment you are just hurting.”

This insight into his past health issues comes after Stallone had his daughters train with Navy SEALs, which the daughter said was extremely difficult but not surprising given his history of putting them through military-style training.

“It was the hardest. It was about six hours we were in those woods,” Stallone’s daughter Sistine recalled.

She continued, “Sophia and I got our asses whooped by these guys. They were the real deal … And I’m not surprised my dad put us through something like this because our entire life we grew up with him doing these sort of military-esque, self-defense trainings.”
