Talk about good genes! Sylvester Stallone premiered the latest film in the Rocky series, Creed, in L.A.’s Westwood neighborhood on Thursday, Nov. 19, but not without his daughters by his side.
All suited up in blue, Stallone, 69, who has now played the beloved boxer Rocky Balboa in seven films, posed for pictures on the red carpet alongside his wife, Jennifer Flavin, and their three children: Sistine, 17, in white, Sophia, 19, in black lace, and Scarlet, 13, in red.
And no surprise, the ladies resemble their famous father. They all have his olive skin tone, arched brows, and full pouts. (Stallone also shares son Seargeoh, 36, with his ex-wife Sasha Czack. Their first child, Sage, died in 2012 at the age of 36.)
The Stallones were joined on the red carpet by the series’ new talent, Michael B. Jordan, who plays Adonis Johnson, and Tessa Thompson, who plays his love, Bianca. While Jordan, 28, looked sharp in a gray suit with a royal blue shirt by Calvin Klein Collection, Thompson, 32, glittered in a Valentino minidress.
On the red carpet, Thompson joked to Us that she didn’t have to train quite as hard as the boys. “I didn’t lift a finger the whole movie except to eat cheesesteaks!” she said, laughing.
However, she praised Jordan for how hard he worked to become the ultimate boxer. “Mike really spent the space of a year, not just working out, but changing his diet and also putting his body through such paces and pain,” Thompson shared. “Even the things [he did] to recover were painful, like ice baths. Watching the dedication with which he did that — he could have easily had someone else do his stunts, or not work as hard as he did — I’m just so proud of him.”
