Sly Stallone Punked! Arnold Schwarzenegger Confesses to Devious 90s Movie Prank!

Remember the action movie smackdown of the 80s? Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone were locked in an epic battle for Hollywood supremacy. Well, it turns out Arnold had a trick up his sleeve – a sly move that left Sly with a permanent mark on his filmography!

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone

In an upcoming tell-all special, “TMZ Presents Arnold & Sly: Rivals, Friends, Icons,” the Governator himself spills the beans on how he orchestrated a hilarious prank on his former rival. Get ready for this – it all revolves around a truly awful movie titled “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot.”

Yes, you read that right. According to Arnold, he NEVER even considered starring in the flop of a film. But when he heard Stallone might be interested, his cunning side emerged.

Operation: Stallone Stumbles

Here’s the genius (or maybe devious?) plan: Arnold planted the rumor mill with whispers of his immense interest in “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot.” He knew Stallone’s competitive spirit wouldn’t let him pass up the chance to snatch the role away from him.

“My agent said, ‘Well you know, Arnold really loves it. I think it’s fantastic,'” Arnold slyly admits in the special.

The Bait is Set

Next, Arnold sweetened the deal by contacting the film’s hotshot director, fresh off a James Bond movie. This move added a layer of legitimacy to the whole charade.

Stallone, completely oblivious to Arnold’s scheme, reacts with pure shock when he hears the details. “You talked to my director?” he asks, clearly stunned.

The Payoff

As Arnold predicted, Stallone’s agent, aware of the rivalry, panicked at the thought of Arnold landing the role. They pressured the studio to offer the part to Stallone instead!

“He then called the studio right away and says, ‘Look, you got to give this to Sly. Don’t give this to Schwarzenegger,'” Arnold reveals. “And they said fine. Sly got it.”

Mission accomplished! Arnold, with a mischievous grin, admits to feeling “absolutely in heaven.” He saw this as a strategic way to slow down Stallone in the race for action movie dominance.

Friends Now, But the Stain Remains

While the two icons are now good friends, Stallone can’t help but poke fun at himself. He jokingly refers to “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot” as a permanent stain on his acting career, a consequence of Arnold’s masterful manipulation.

This upcoming special promises a hilarious and heartwarming look back at the legendary rivalry-turned-bromance. Who knew Arnold Schwarzenegger was such a prankster? We can’t wait to see more!
