Stallone breaks his neck filming latest movie.


Tough guy actor Sylvester Stallone, no stranger to a punch, played so rough on the set of his new film The Expendables, his neck was broken. Stallone, 63, reveals in an interview with this month’s FHM magazine that a fight scene with Stone Cold Steve Austin, the wrestler, turned “so vicious that I ended up getting a hairline fracture in my neck. “I’m not joking. I haven’t told anyone this, but I had to have a very serious operation afterwards. I now have a metal plate in my neck.” The fight scene involved some of Hollywood’s biggest brawlers, including Bruce Willis, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jason Statham.

“Man, it was seven guys, kicking each other’s ass, one guy tougher than the next,” said Stallone, whose career includes a string of Rocky and Rambo movies. “No joke, our stunt guys were begging for mercy.” The film, which was written and directed by Stallone, is about a group of mercenaries who try to overthrow a dictator. Brittany Murphy, the actress who died last month at age 32 after collapsing at home, also stars in the movie. It’s due in theatres in August.
