Sylvester Stallone on his anti-Bruce Willis comments
"Perhaps I shouldn't have been so vocal with it", admits Sylvester Stallone of his opinion on one-time Expendables co-star Bruce Willis...
Currently shooting in Europe is The Expendables 3, which features Sylvester Stallone but absolutely doesn't feature Bruce Willis this time around. You may recall that Stallone wasn't best pleased with all of this, writing "GREEDY AND LAZY... A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE" (in caps) on his Twitter feed, something that was subsequently confirmed as a direct reference to Bruce Willis.
In the latest issue of Empire magazine (which has a posh picture of The Hunger Games on the front cover), there's a new interview with Sylvester Stallone, where he's asked specifically about that Tweet. "This is just a matter of economics", Stallone said. "Bruce has been a lifelong friend. I still consider him a friend, at least on my side. This is something that came out of frustration, but it also turned out okay". Stallone did also admit "perhaps I shouldn't have been so vocal with it".
Interestingly, at the time of writing, that's the last Tweet that Stallone set, nearly two months on. Bruce Willis has never said anything about it.
You'll find the full interview with Stallone (and Arnold Schwarzenegger) in the November issue of Empire magazine, priced at the princely sum of £3.99.
