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 was seen with a catwalk's worth of women who seemed to live on the cover of Vogue. Stallone: A Rocky Life reveals the emotional background of this most private public figure. Based on exclusive interviews with the star himself, his outspoken mother, his second wife and a host of celebrity colleagues and friends, the book presents an insider's view of the actor. Fans will find the star's personal life as compelling as any of his action adventures. The author also tells the story of Stallone's film career, from cartoon icon to failed comic actor to his incarnation as an overweight anti-hero in the critically acclaimed Cop Land. Stallone: A Rocky Life is a thoughtful examination of a man who faced up to tragedies and setbacks to win fame, fortune and happiness.
