He’s a well-read man who enjoys the classics. He hangs “with fellas who run a weed store.” In other words, Sylvester Stallone’s Dwight “The General” Manfredi from Paramount+’s upcoming Tulsa King is a “different animal from what you would normally see in a gangster film.” “I play a very different interpretation [of a mobster],” Stallone told Sylvester Stallone’s recent Italian getaway took an exciting turn when he was handed the keys to the Vatican.
Stallone posted about the experience on Instagram, sharing a picture of him holding five key rings with multiple keys on each, claiming he could now open every door in Vatican City. Very rare and special moment. I was allowed to hold the KEYS that open EVERY single door in the entire Vatican City! Including the Sistine Chapel,” he wrote in his Instagram caption. “Of course they wouldn’t let me out of their sight with the KEYS … I don’t blame them!”
He seemed particularly excited about the fact that he held the key to the door leading to the Sistine Chapel, due to the fact that one of his daughters is named Sistine, saying, “so glad we named our beautiful daughter this beautiful name., ‘Sistine.’” Stallone was in Italy promoting his new show on Paramount +, “Tulsa King,” which will be available to stream on November 15. He was also there to help celebrate the launch of Paramount + in Italy, which launched in the country on September 15.
The show follows a member of the mafia, Dwight “The General” Manfredi, played by Stallone, after he is released from jail and tries to reconnect with his mob family. After getting exiled from New York by his former family, he moves to Tulsa, Oklahoma and begins to set up his own criminal empire.
The “Rocky” star has been in the news recently due to his split from his wife of 25 years, Jennifer Flavin, who filed for divorce in August 2022. Prior to her filing, speculation of their split started swirling when Flavin posted a photo of her with her daughters on Instagram with the caption “These girls are my priority. Nothing else matters. The 4 of us forever.” Flavin was also spotted without her wedding ring shortly before filing for divorce, further hinting their relationship was not as solid as fans once thought.
