Sylvester Stallone Versus Bruce Willis

  • Najib Benouar

Stallone Willis

If you hadn’t heard, two of the greatest action heroes of our time are beefing.

It all started with a seemingly innocuous tweet by Sylvester Stallone regarding a staffing change on Expendables 3: Bruce Willis is out, Harrison Ford is in. Generally harmless—except that old Sly followed that up with another tweet regarding someone being greedy and lazy (obviously a Willis-directed subtweet). Yesterday it was revealed by an insider that Willis had demanded a pay raise that equated to $1 million for each day of work (four) which miffed the rough-and-tumble crew of aging badasses to the point of collectively agreeing to not negotiate with salary-terrorists and fire him. (Turns out, he was indeed expendable.)

In Hollywood, this is what beef is. And there’s only one way to settle this: cold, hard facts.

So we pored over their storied careers, questionable red-carpet looks and enduring catchphrase legacies to see who the real winner is.»
