Sylvester Stallone (1946- ) is a well-known American actor. In one of his most famous roles, he played the Philadelphia native Rocky Balboa in the Rocky film series. Stallone is also known for his work as a filmmaker, screenwriter, and film director. Warhol described his photo session with Stallone in his
Diaries:

It was very cold out. I went to church. Then I had to be ready at 2:30 to go to the Regency to take photographs of Sylvester Stallone…. I used ten rolls of film, because he’s really hard to photograph. From the front his neck is skinny, then from the side it looks three feet wide. From the front he has a huge chest, and from the side no chest at all. His hands are pretty, I used his hands, but sometimes they look tiny and sometimes they look huge. He’s like Rubber man. (March 2, 1980)
