Sylvester Stallone began his film career in the 1970s and has since starred in over fifty major films. Along the way, the writer/director also allegedly had quite a few plastic surgery procedures to keep himself as youthful as possible.
The 90-year-old astrologer took to the red carpet alongside her son Sylvester Stallone - who stars in the action movie - at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles and renewed speculation that her secret to still looking younger than her years may not be entirely natural by flaunting her excessively large lips.
She attended the premiere to support Sylvester - who was also joined by his wife Jennifer Flavin and their three daughters, Sophia, 15, Sistine, 14, and 10-year-old Scarlet - as he returned to the city where his late son Sage, 36, was found unresponsive last month in his Studio City apartment.
Earlier in the day, Sylvester described Sage - his son from his first marriage to Sasha Czack - as a ''lovely boy'' and sympathised with parents who have also lost their children and haven't received as much support as he has.
He told talk show host Jay Leno: ''When life hits you pretty hard you can go into a dark corner, or you can say, 'OK, fine, I'm going to find something to focus on, children, your wife, be supportive to other people too.'
We have to admit though that Sly maintains a great shape through the years but it is speculated that he helps his skin with some plastic surgery procedures such as Botox injections.
It has to be noted that botox is not a permanent procedure. That's why sometimes it can be more obvious than others. Just keep in mind that the injections need to be received in 3 to 6 months intervals to keep the results.
The question is: "How can you tell that someone has got botox injections?"
It won't be an exaggeration to claim that Sly's stretched features give him a permanently surprised expression.
The apparent scar running along his hairline suggests a facelift or browlift at the very least.
You may wonder:"What plastic surgeon experts state about Sylvester Stallone's plastic surgery procedures?"
According to plastic surgeon John Di Saia MD: "This type of forehead lift is designed to shorten the forehead and lift the eyebrows. The incision is in the hairline as we can see in the close up image. These incisions become less noticeable with time. This one looks relatively recent. His eyebrows should settle a bit too."
There have been rumors about Stallone’s nips and tucks for several years now. Perhaps he never had a full-on facelift, but he’s had something done, like a brow lift or something with the tightness of his jaw line. But those rumors haven’t stopped him from going under the knife again with his look in Venice as an indication. "The Daily Mail" also noted that Stallone was wearing very heavy makeup for the event.
Check out below what "The Daily Mail" reported about Sylvester Stallone's look.
"Sylvester Stallone was obviously glowing with pride at being awarded a film-making prize today. But it was more than just the flush of success that was contributing to the Rambo star’s slightly orange and frozen complexion.
The 63-year-old appeared to be wearing heavy facial make-up and there was barely a wrinkle to be seen on his forehead when he arched his eyebrows at the Venice Film Festival today.
Wearing a slick grey pinstripe suit and blue tie, the actor looked a world away from his long-haired Rambo character."
