Schwarzenegger admits cheating on Stallone — RT Games & Culture


Arnie has finally confirmed long-running Hollywood rumors about “Stop!” Or my mother will shoot the movie

Action star Arnold Schwarzenegger has admitted to The Hollywood Reporter that he tricked then-rival Sylvester Stallone into starring in one of his worst films, “Stop!” Or my mother will shoot.’

The magazine, which published a major interview with Stallone on Monday, reached out to Schwarzenegger, asking him to comment on long-swirling rumors about the 1992 buddy cop comedy.

It was claimed that Arnie hated the script, but deliberately divulged that he was very interested in the role in hopes that Sly would take it over and end up starring in a bad movie, which would hurt his career. And his plan worked.

“It’s 100% true. At that time, we were doing all kinds of crazy things to get ahead in our rivalry,” Schwarzenegger, 75, told reporters.

But the former California governor stressed that any conflict between him and Stallone is now a thing of the past. “Fortunately for us and for everyone else, today we are rooting for each other. Thank goodness because we certainly never need another ‘Stop!’ or my mom will shoot.'”


Upon release, the film was destroyed by critics and is still considered one of the worst of Sly’s five-decade film career. However, it did relatively well at the box office, grossing over $70 million.

Stallone, 76, told The Hollywood Reporter how he got into “Stop!” Or my mother will shoot.’ The actor recalled that he “I had heard that Schwarzenegger was going to do this movie and I said, ‘I’m going to beat him. I think he tricked me.

The film “was meant to be like ‘Throw Momma From the Train’ with the mom like this really mean job. Instead, you hire the nicest woman in Hollywood, Estelle Getty, whom you wish was your mother. This is the end of that! he said.

Sly also insisted that when he and Arnie meet these days, they find each other. “Just laughing at the good old days.”

According to Stallone, he told his former rival that “’We are the last two tyrannosaurs.’ We’re the last two meat eaters, and there’s not much beef left. So we better have fun.
