Schwarzenegger: I Wanted To ‘Destroy’ Stallone

Arnold Schwarzenegger hated Sylvester Stallone so much when the Rambo movies became big hits that he vowed to “destroy” his rival at the box office.

Now good friends, business partners and Expendables co-stars, Schwarzenegger admits Stallone has grown on him.

He says, “When I saw Rambo II, I saw Sly with his clothes off and he looked totally ripped. I said, ‘What the f— is he doing in my department? In the Rocky movies, he was athletic and smooth but he wasn’t that ripped. Does he have less body fat than I have? I have to get him. If he thinks he’s stepping into my territory, I’m stepping into his and outdo him in the movies’. This is where the battle began.

“He was like a competitor that I had to go and destroy. We were competing on who had less body fat, who was killing more people onscreen, who was killing people in the most unique way, who had the biggest box office, who has better reviews. It was an all-out battle for a decade.

People asked me, ‘What do you think of Sly’s movies?’ I’d say, ‘They’re s—!’.”
