A picture is worth a thousand words and the recent Sylvester Stallone/Arnold Schwarzenegger snap that’s been circulating on the web brings one particular palabra to our minds – Machismo! The aging action stars were seen posing together on gurneys as they both prepped for shoulder surgery.
Now in their 60’s, Arnold and Sly have put their bodies through the ringer for their stunt-heavy movies. And, according to Schwarzenegger, it was pure coincidence that brought them together in the ER.
“After all the action, stunts & physical abuse shooting The Expendables 2 and The Last Stand, it was time for a little tune up on my shoulder,” he told fans on his blog. “Look who was coincidentally waiting in line behind me for his shoulder surgery. Now we’re ready for another round of great times and action when we shoot The Tomb.”
Indeed, the two will be appearing in quite a few movies together in the near future. But for now, it’s probably best they get some R & R. Let’s hope the guys can find a good helper to nurse them back to fighting shape.
