He went to college at University of Miami, but dropped out to pursue a career writing screenplays. He got his start in acting by doing a soft-core adult film that he made $200 at a time when he was broke and homeless. His story, much like Rocky’s, is a true rags to riches story.
The bulk of Stallone’s net worth comes making movies, mostly action films. Films like the “Rocky” series, “Demolition Man”, “Assassains”, “Cobra”, “Lock Up”, “Nighthawks”, the “Rambo” series, “Tango and Cash”, and “The Expendables” trilogy of movies that features just about every action star that is currently living. Between “Rocky”, “The Expendables”, and “Rambo”, Stallone has played the three characters thirteen times. In “Cop Land”, Stallone was able to showcase his acting ability, but the film did not match the success of his action films. He has also tried to branch out and do comedies, but they too were not as successful.
Stallone also has a placement sponsorship with B&W products, that he signed in 1983. He made a quarter of a million dollars up front with fifty thousand for each subsequent movie that he uses their products in.
In some of the films he stars in, he also produces, directs and often times, writes. He has directed the first three “Rocky” sequels, and served as writer on the first five films. He has also written the four “Rambo” movies and directed the most recent that came out in 2008. Other films he has written include: “Rhinestone”, “The Expendables” trilogy, “Driven”, “Cliffhanger”, and “Over the Top”.
Stallone has been nominated for two Academy Awards for his work in the first “Rocky” movie, one was for best screenplay and the other was for best actor. Stallone is the third person to garner these two nominations for the same film; the other two are Orson Welles and Charles Chaplin, there would be five men that would follow in their footsteps. Props from the movie were given to the Smithsonian Museum and it was inducted into the National Film Industry. His role in “Cop Land” won him the Best Actor Award from the Stockholm International Film Festival. He was awarded a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Miami in 1999.
