How do you take a selfie with Sylvester Stallone? A lucky group of friends were told by Sylvester himself to ‘look tough’ while he snapped a selfie with them on top of the famed staircase in his legendary movie ‘Rocky.’ Here’s what happened!
Sylvester Stallone, 68, will forever be Rocky Balboa in many hearts. So you can imagine the excitement fans got when they climbed the famous stairs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art on Jan. 17, only to spot Sylvester up there, too! And yes, they took a selfie.
Sylvester Stallone Selfie: ‘Rocky’ Star Snaps Photo With Fans
This is so amazing! Peter Rowe recently moved near Philadelphia, and when a group of his friends came to visit, they were in for a treat! The friends visited the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which is featured in the film when Sylvester’s character Rocky runs up the museum steps during training.
You can imagine the friends’ surprise and excitement when Sylvester was there on the steps just like in the film. Of course, they had to snap a pic to document the moment.
“[Sylvester] said to us, ‘Man you guys are fast. You’re making me look bad!” Peter told the Associated Press.
Before snapping the photo, Sylvester said, “Look tough, guys!”
Peter and his friends could barely contain their excitement and flashed their smiles for the camera, while Sylvester raised a fist for the camera — we all know he’s a pro at looking tough.
Though we’d love to imagine that Sylvester frequently hangs out on the famous staircase, he’s actually just in town shooting a documentary film, Creed. The film is another installment in the Rocky series, where Balboa trains and mentors Apollo Creed’s grandson.
