“Rocky Balboa” star Sylvester Stallone has finally spoken regarding the death of his son, Sage Stallone, saying that it was a “horrible situation … but it’s something that is reality in life.”
Back in July, the 66-year-old actor asked for some privacy after the untimely death of his son, Sage Stallone. However, with the opening of his new movie “The Expendables 2,” Sylvester Stallone is back in the spotlight, and has said a few words about his late son.
The sudden passing of 36-year-old Sage Stallone was “tough,” Stallone said Tuesday on “Good Morning America” — where he appeared along with his other “Expendables 2” co-stars.
“It’s very, very tough,” said the action movie star.
But then again, life goes on. Sylvester Stallone added, “If you have good friends and your family support, it’s just something that — it’s a horrible situation — but time hopefully will heal and you try to get through it. It’s something that’s a reality of life.”
Previous reports have stated that on July 13, the dead body of Sage Stallone was found at his Studio City home. While the cause of his death is still under investigation, foul play was not suspected. The authorities were looking into the original source of huge, empty prescription bottles that were found at Sage’s room, and the results of toxicology tests are still pending from an autopsy conducted shortly after the body of the film director and producer was found.
“This agonizing loss will be felt for the rest of our lives,” Sylvester Stallone said in a statement at the time. “Sage was our first child and the center of our universe and I am humbly begging for all to have my son’s memory and soul left in peace.”
One month after the death of Sage Stallone, Sylvester Stallone looked calm as he joined his “Expendables 2″ co-stars — Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, Jason Statham and Jean-Claude Van Damme — to promote their upcoming movie. Though Sly directed the first installment, honors for the sequel went to Simon West of “Con Air” fame.
Sylvester Stallone said, “I think it’s important to get back and try to start reliving your life, otherwise you can go into a spiral.”
“The Expendables 2″ has its premiere in the United States Thursday, then hits theaters nationwide Friday. Stallone and the whole cast appeared Monday at the film’s Britain premiere in London.
