“I’ve written every word, I’ve choreographed it, I’ve been loyal to you, I’ve promoted it, directed it and I don’t have 1 percent that I could leave for my children?”
Sylvester Stallone expresses that even after creating the role of Rocky, he has no ownership in the franchise. This was the first time in history that Stallone opened up about his feelings on not being given any form of ownership in the worldwide loved Rocky series. He admitted this in an interview with Variety magazine.
Stallone stated, “I have zero ownership of ‘Rocky.” “Every word, every syllable, every grammatical error was all my fault. It was shocking that it never came to be, but I was told, ‘Hey, you got paid, so what are you complaining about?’ I was furious.” Stallone expressed his feelings saying that he blames himself for being naive about the business side of Holywood.
