Sly Stallone's Early Days With His Best Friend
Before he was Rocky, Rambo, or hanging off cliffs in big budget Hollywood movies, Sylvester Stallone was a man with a passion, a dream, and one friend to keep him company...
Just found this one. Kind of interesting in my personal evolution and my dogs… This is me and my Amazing Canine , BUTKUS , in New York City,Several years before Rocky was even a thought in my head,Totally broke and obviously poorly dressed and quite hungry, doing our daily business in the "Street" … Even though I've been very successful and blessed, I kind of still miss those cool morning walks with my four-legged friend! We literally spent 24 hours a day together , inseparable, Best of friends you might say, I loved him, And fortunately I'll never find a dog like him again..
Mr Stallone is clearly proud of those hard days of grafting for his dream. He wasn't famous, wasn't rich, but he kept working because he was passionate. For more bite-size insights on the value of working for your dreams, check out what Dwayne Johnson and Lewis Hamilton have to say!
Power Rangers Presents The First Openly Gay Superhero On Screen
Superheroes, superheroes, superheroes... they've been all over the big screen for well over a decade now, from Iron Man to Superman. But with this recent surge, there hasn't yet been a film to feature an openly gay character.
The upcoming reboot film, Power Rangers, is changing that. As the film's director Dean Isarelite says of the Yellow Ranger character, Trini,
"Really she's questioning a lot about who she is... She hasn't fully figured it out yet. I think what's great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, 'That's OK.' The movie is saying, 'That's OK,' and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe."
What's great about this is that it's not about what someone's sexual orientation is. It is about the reality that growing up as a young boy or girl is hard because so many people are trying to make you fit into what they want. This goes for adults too! Being in touch with yourself, knowing who you are and what you genuinely feel, as opposed to what you think you should feel, is crucial for our happiness and for being able to live authentic lives.
