Born to Frank and Jackie Stallone on July 6th, 1946, Sylvester Stallone's life was difficult right from the beginning. During a complicated and difficult birth, doctors accidentally severed a facial nerve – an accident that resulted in Stallone's unique facial expressions and slightly slurred speech, two of his future trademarks as an actor.
His family lived a troubled life. Stallone's mother, Jackie, operated a gym in Washington DC, one of the first women-only gyms in the country. His father, Frank, was a hairdresser. The family's parents fought constantly, leading to Sylvester and his younger brother Frank spending their youth bouncing from one New York City foster home to another, racking up foster families on a frequent basis.
Throughout his early life, Stallone held a variety of odd jobs. He worked as a laborer, saving money carefully to invest in his dream career – to be an actor, a director, and an all-round star. His financial success was very limited during the early stages of his career, and during Stallone's first marriage, it wasn't uncommon for financial arguments to drive him from his wife for weeks at a time.
