Some might be surprised that Sylvester Stallone is making the rounds to promote his new movie, The Expendables 2, just a month after son Sage Stallone died of yet-undetermined cause. But the actor spoke on Good Morning America this morning and explained why he was back at work.
“I think it’s important to get back and start reliving your life. Otherwise, you can go into a spiral,” he said, appearing on the show with co-stars Jean-Claude Van Damme, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham and Dolph Lundgren.
It was his first interview since Sage Stallone, 36, was found dead in his apartment on July 13.
The horrifying news about how Sylvester Stallone‘s son, Sage Stallone, 36, was found dead in his apartment on Friday, broke the hearts of family, friends and fans all over the world. His surprising death lead to a lot of heartbreaking allegations that we couldn’t even stand to watch roll in.
Sage was an actor, director and screenwriter. Remember Rocky Balboa’s son in Stallone’s 1990 film, Rocky V? That adorable dark-haired kid was Sage Stallone. Cue tears.
Sylvester told TMZ that he is completely devastated by the death of his son and how badly he wants “the speculation and questionable reporting” to stop. We couldn’t agree more. Stallone went on to say “when a parent loses a child there is no greater pain.” Sly is begging the public to show compassion and respect for Sage’s “loving mother Sasha.”
When speaking about how this would affect his family, Sylvester said “this agonizing loss will be felt for the rest of our lives,” adding, “Sage was our first child and the center of our universe, and I am humbly begging for all to have my son’s memory and soul left in peace.”
We here at VH1 send our thoughts and good wishes out to the Sly, Sasha, and the entire family during this incredibly difficult time.
