Sylvester Stallone said he gave up sex to conserve his energy in order to shoot Rocky. Stallone says,
Giving up sex isn’t really that hard to do and it’s well known that it can improve your performance in sports – or on a movie.
Imagine having sex with Stallone. Now imagine having sex with a real live gargoyle. You had the same image in your head both times didn’t you? On a side note, I have it on good authority that Stallone was made in a lab. Once they birthed him, they stuck him in a chair Clockwork Orange style and showed him every cheesy movie ever made and gave him the idea for Rocky just to spite us. Sadly, they forgot all about his looks.
