Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin, 22-Year Age Difference

Sugar Daddy Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin

Sugar Daddy Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer FlavinAt over 60 years old, actor Sylvester Stal­lone is still tear­ing up the big screen. Stal­lone was cat­a­pulted into the spot­light after tak­ing on the title role in the 1976 block­buster Rocky. The iconic scene where Rocky tri­umphantly runs up the steps of the Philadel­phia Museum of Art to the beat of Survivor’s Eye of the Tiger was arguably Stallone’s step­ping stone to suc­cess in Hol­ly­wood. The film led to five suc­cess­ful sequels over the span of 30 years, with the orig­i­nal even­tu­ally being inducted to the National Film Reg­istry. There’s even a per­ma­nent statue of Stal­lone as Rocky near the now-famous museum entrance.

As big as Rocky was, it was just one of the char­ac­ters that defined Stallone’s career as an action hero—he’s also known for play­ing the title char­ac­ter in the Rambo series, and the role of Bar­ney Ross in The Expend­ables series, among a slew of other mem­o­rable titles.

After two failed mar­riages, Stal­lone met Jen­nifer Flavin in 1988 at a restau­rant in Bev­erly Hills—he was a famous 42-year-old action hero, and she was a 20-year-old aspir­ing model. Not only was Stal­lone sev­eral rungs higher on the fame lad­der, and more than dou­ble her age, he also had two chil­dren from his first mar­riage, and his youngest was only eight years younger than Flavin. Despite the age gap, they started dat­ing, even­tu­ally get­ting mar­ried nine years later. They now have three daugh­ters: 17-year-old Sis­tine Rose, 15-year-old Sophie Rose, and 11-year-old Scar­let Rose.

In the sum­mer of 2012, Stallone’s eldest son—Flavin’s stepson—unexpectedly died from a heart attack. Stallone’s nephew ini­tially blamed the actor via Face­book, say­ing that he neglected his son, and accus­ing Flavin of tear­ing their fam­ily apart. But despite their rela­tion­ship being put through the wringer in the media, Flavin stood by her husband’s side, and they’ve since man­aged to come out stand­ing tall, and still hap­pily married.
