Why Sylvester Stallone turned down $34 million Rambo paycheck

Sylvester Stallone is one the few actors to have films top the box office across six decades.

The 76-year-old Academy Award-nominee admitted he had a few regrets in his lifetime.

One of which was turning down a $34 million paycheck to star in another 'Rambo' movie back in the '80s.

He refused because he was critical of all the violence and horrifying scenes in the movie.

Sylvester Stallone is an American actor, producer and director with a net worth of $400 million.

Stallone's movies have generated more than $4 billion in global revenue.

Unlike most Hollywood stars, Stallone has written, produced and directed many of his major franchise movies like 'Rambo' and 'Rocky'.

After writing the screenplay for 'Rocky' in just 3 days, Stallone found interest in his project at multiple studios.

The movie went on to earn $225 million on a budget of $1 million.

Stallone put over 1,400 props from his film career up for auction and donated the money to support US veterans and wounded servicemen.
