From Homeless to Hollywood: The Incredible Rise of Sylvester Stallone
Sylvester Stallone owns one of the most inspiring success stories. Before achieving his dazzling success, he was primarily a poor artist. For several years during and after his university studies, he worked in odd jobs to pay the bills while at the same time taking on any acting roles he could find to keep his dream of becoming a successful actor alive before his death.It was a struggle Sylvester endured for many years, a struggle that actually lasted for seven years, during which he played minor roles in a few films, but he did not get an important role enough to start his career.
Throughout those long seven years of struggle, he was just a few steps away from declaring bankruptcy. Because of the extreme despair that beset him due to his need, he was forced at one point to sell his wife’s jewelery. He was also forced to sell his dog because he could not feed him. And reached a stage wher
e Sylvester became homeless, forced to sleep outdoors for several days.
But his tough days as a struggling actor won’t last forever. After facing harsh circumstances that are not expected for more than seven years, he finally got a big break. This break came after he managed to text a script he wrote in a wave of inspiration for three days in front of two of Hollywood’s top directors. This was the decisive moment that would tip the scales for Sylvester Stallone, and his career flourished after negotiating the leading role in the film known as “Rocky”.
