Stallone: It's hard to get men to like you
By LOUISE DIXON , Associated Press

LONDON (AP) -- Sylvester Stallone may come across as the ultimate guy's guy. But he says action stars like him are "the hardest characters to sell" to other men.

"Men are very competitive," Stallone said ahead of Monday's world premiere of "The Expendables 3."

"They go, 'Who's that? I'm sure he takes diuretic steroids. You know, he's shorter than he looks.'"

"It's very hard to do it. People think, 'Oh it's really easy,'" said Stallone. "It's good to jump around but to get other men to like you, it's very difficult. Men are kind of standoffish that way."

The third installment of "The Expendables" sees the team come into conflict with a ruthless arms dealer, played by Mel Gibson. Harrison Ford and Wesley Snipes join the cast of action legends. And there's new blood, including "Twilight" heartthrob Kellan Lutz and mixed martial arts fighter Ronda Rousey.

Needless to say, the extended team of Expendables battle it out to bring down the bad guys and save the world.

"The Expendables 3" is in U.K. cinemas from August 14 and opens in the U.S. August 15.

I understand what Sly means...I have the same problem because men realize that their wives and girlfriends would leave them in a second for me.  It's a burden to be this damned sexy...

So any movie he does with retirement age actors he is just going to slap the Expendable title to it, not original. Mel Gibson as a ruthless arms dealer, was that not the plot to Machete Kills ?
