Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger use big old knives to carve Halloween pumpkins together in a fun new photo posted to social media.
Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger prove their friendship blossoms by carving Halloween pumpkins together. Stallone became the biggest action star of the ’80s thanks to his iconic roles in the rocky and Rambo franchises. But Schwarzenegger quickly overshadowed him thanks to his own action-packed hit movies like the terminator, command and Total Recall.
Given their battle for the title of Hollywood’s biggest action star, it was probably natural that Stallone and Schwarzenegger would become bitter rivals. But in later years, the stripped-down superstars were fortunately able to bury the hatchet and even appeared in a handful of movies together. In addition to sharing the screen in The expendables series, Stallone and Schwarzenegger also teamed up for the 2013 film Escape plan.
Whether Stallone and Schwarzenegger will ever team up on screen again, no one can say. But in real life, the couple seems to keep their friendship alive, at least pass them by Schwarzenegger‘s new Twitter post. In the photo, the screen icons can be seen in the very impressive trophy room of Schwarzenegger carving jack-o-lanterns using a pair of knives that would be at home in a Rambo movie.
