Sylvester Stallone's ex-wife, Brigitte Nielsen, says there is no way Stallone could have sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl in Las Vegas because she was with him the entire time.

Stallone Denies Sexual Misconduct Claims: It Never Happened
Sylvester Stallone has come forward to respond to the accusations that he and his bodyguard forced a 16-year old girl to have a threesome when he was 41. The actor flatly denies that the incident ever happened. The 71-year old actor came forward rather quickly to get in front of the allegations that reportedly took place in 1986 during the production of the cult classic armwrestling movie Over the Top, according to a Las Vegas police report that the Daily Mail obtained earlier today. Stallone is the latest man in power to be accused of sexual assault, but is probably one of the quickest to come out and say that the accusations are completely false.

Sylvester Stallone Accused of Sexually Abusing Teen Girl
And the hits just keep coming. A police report from 1986 has surfaced accusing Sylvester Stallone of sexual assaulting a 16-year old girl. The Rocky star was 40-years old when the unnamed teenager revealed to Las Vegas police that she had been "intimidated" into having sex with Stallone and his bodyguard Michael 'Mike' De Luca at the former Las Vegas Hilton hotel in July of 1986 during the production of the arm-wrestling drama Over the Top.

Blu-ray Review – Paradise Alley (1978)

Paradise Alley, 1978.

Written and Directed by Sylvester Stallone.

Starring Sylvester Stallone, Lee Canalito, Armand Assante, Anne Archer, Frank McRae, Joe Spinell, Terry Funk, Frank Stallone, and Tom Waits.

Synopsis:

Three brothers in the slums of 1940s New York try to make their fortune by training the youngest sibling to become an underground wrestler.

After the success of Rocky in 1976 Sylvester Stallone was a hot property in Hollywood and was pretty much able to get any passion projects he wanted a green light, which is why between Rocky and Rocky II we got trucking federation drama F.I.S.T. and, more significantly, Paradise Alley. Significant because as well as writing it Stallone also directed it (and in true Little Britain style, also sang the theme tune), which marked his first time behind the camera, setting him up to direct Rocky II the same year, and also because despite sharing many themes and plot threads as Rocky,

Sequelitis!: The Necessary Disease Ravaging Hollywood

Remember 2011? Not a particularly memorable year, but some highlights stand out. That was the year Obama released his long form birth certificate, it was the year of a major tsunami hitting Japan, it was the year we got Osama bin Laden…it was also the year of 27 sequels.

27 Sequels!?!

Yeah, that sounds like a bad title to 26 Sequels, my favorite Cambodian/Peruvian film (sarcasm), but how crazy is that? Now, I want to point out that this year…it’s 30. That’s right, 30 sequels. This isn’t counting reboots mind you, or universe expanding films, this is the straight sequel. “We are carrying out the story from one onto the next, enjoy it.” That kind of sequel.

Before you grab your pitchforks and torches, and certainly before you start screaming: “Hollywood Has No Original Ideals! Booo, Protest! Hiss! Rabble Rabble,” you need to hear me out on this.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about the Movie “Over the Top”

Over the Top is one of those movies you have to be reminded of, otherwise you might never really think about it except for one fleeting moment at a time. It wasn’t a terrible movie but it wasn’t the best either. The entire plot centers around two points, arm-wrestling and Hawk getting to know his son. By the time the film is almost over the kid finally comes to understand that he loves his father and wants to see him succeed, and Hawk is up against the biggest, meanest guy on the roster that should be able to break his

Sylvester Stallone Says Ggg Vs Canelo Is a 'Real Fight,' Not Like Mayweather/McGregor

[[tmz:video id="0_ppc0qfer"]] Add Sly Stallone to the list of people who thought Mayweather vs. McGregor was a farce ... with Rocky himself telling us he's over the hype and moving on to the "Real" fight -- Ggg vs Canelo. We got Cobra (watch it, it's a forgotten classic) leaving the Palm Beverly Hills and asked if he thought the Ggg/Canelo fight would be more interesting than Floyd and Conor.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard Review

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Scott Davis

For anyone that loved Cannon Films in the 1980’s and their shlocky, grotesque but strangely enjoyable fare, Millennium Films are still flying the Golan-Globus flag some three decades later. Many of those who worked for the charismatic Israeli cousins during that manic few years through such “classics” as Invasion USA, Missing in Action, Lifeforce and Over The Top, are now part of Millennium and while a lot of their properties share much of its DNA, there’s an air of quality control with the new gang.

Their latest 21st-century Cannon-esque outing is The Hitman’s Bodyguard, another run-of-the-mill action-comedy that has all the hallmarks of being a little bit of a stinker from the off. But it’s with great joy that we can shake off those fears and proclaim the film one of the year’s most ridiculous but unabashedly delightful romps with two stars at the top of their powers.

‘Twin Peaks’ Review: Part 13 Proves the Magic of Pie, Coffee, and an Arm-Wrestling Death Match

‘Twin Peaks’ Review: Part 13 Proves the Magic of Pie, Coffee, and an Arm-Wrestling Death Match
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Twin Peaks: The Return,” Season 3, “Part 13” (Episode 13).]

No part of “Twin Peaks” is predictable, but the predominant theme of “Part 13” unveiled itself in a hurry: pie.

The delicious diner desert and its perfect beverage partner have been staples of David Lynch’s series since its inception, but rarely in “The Return” have we seen such intense focus on the healing power of a good slice and a few sips.

Cooper’s (Kyle MacLachlan) fixation on cherry pie, which already saved his life once, did so again (and from the same shop). A distraught Becky (Amanda Seyfried) calls her mother, Shelly (Madchen Amick), and the mere promise of pie turns her frown upside down. Later, Norma (Peggy Lipton) meets with Walter (Grant Goodeve) about her diner franchise’s performance, and she’s told the other pies aren’t as good as her own. Norma explains why — hers are made from all-natural ingredients — to which Walter responds, “Love doesn’t always turn a profit.

This Whole Henry Cavill Mustache Thing is a Little Over the Top

It makes the mind put in some serious overtime when we realize what has become newsworthy these days. From the smallest details to the most inane it seems as though nothing escapes tabloid, news posts, and pretty much anything that people feel the need to report upon. One would think that with the amount of digital technology and the oh so important invention known as a razor that such things as facial hair would no longer be an issue. Add to this the advent of using fake beards and mustaches that look and feel like the real thing and such
