Action star Sylvester Stallone is revealing the toll his dedication to his craft has taken on his body in the new season of his reality show, “The Family Stallone.”

During filming of “The Expendables,” Stallone suffered a neck fracture while filming a fight scene with wrestler-turned-actor “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. This injury required multiple surgeries, including the insertion of a metal plate in his neck and spinal fusions.

Stallone acknowledges his regrets, stating, “I did stupid stuff… I never recovered from Expendables 1. After that film, it was never physically the same.” He advises others, “don’t do your own stunts.”

Sophia added, 'But then it was a lot of sit ups, push ups, pull ups, clean and jerks,' while Sistine joked, 'He made the perfect boys'

The impact of these injuries extends beyond Stallone himself. His wife, Jennifer Flavin, expresses her concern, stating, “It’s very scary for our family every time Sly has to go through surgery.”

Stallone’s daughters, Sophia and Sistine, also share their experiences. Sophia describes their rigorous training regimen with their father, including early mornings, specific meals, and intense workouts. Sistine reveals their participation in self-defense training with Navy SEALS before moving to New York City.

The show also features lighter moments, like Stallone attempting and failing to catch a live chicken, reminiscent of a scene from “Rocky II.”

While not directly involved in the training, Stallone’s youngest daughter, Scarlett, adds her voice to the show, sharing her own experiences.

The Family Stallone” Season 2 offers a glimpse into the lives of the Stallone family, showcasing both the challenges and triumphs they face.

'I did stupid stuff. I was directing Expendables and like an idiot I’m doing take ten, take whatever, and I remember one slam and I could actually feel one bang,' he said of a scene he filmed with wrestler-turned-actor 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin'

Scarlett recounts a humorous anecdote from her visit to her sisters in New York City, highlighting the unexpected encounters one might face in the bustling metropolis.

Despite their time spent in the city, Sophia acknowledges their father’s unwavering concern. “He’s like a classic, overprotective dad,” she explains, while Sistine adds, “He’s nervous because we’re out and about.”

Sophia reveals a practical solution employed by their mother to ease their father’s anxieties: “It helps that my mom tracks us on Find My Friends [app] so they know where we are.”

This addition provides a relatable touch, showcasing the challenges and humor of navigating independence while balancing parental concern.
