Stallone Steers Clear Of Romantic Comedies

Subscribe to Sylvester Stallone alerts

Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone has sworn off ever starring in a romantic comedy - because he believes his fans will only ever accept him as an action hero.

Stallone, who scored a huge fanbase in such action franchises as Rocky and Rambo, admits he's never been too successful whenever he's strayed outside of his usual genre.

He tells MAXMIM magazine, "It's hard to make such a drastic change when you're identified with a certain character or genre.

"Some guys have amazing versatility and can move around more guys like Tom Hanks, Russell Crowe, Paul Newman.

"But other fells... their baggage arrives 10 minutes before they do. People go, 'Oh! It's Rocky!'

"Let me put it this way: You won't see Sylvester Stallone starring in Notting Hill 2."
