Schwarzenegger says tie-up with Stallone was decades in making
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Arnold Schwarzenegger said he and fellow 1980s action star Sylvester Stallone wanted to work together for decades, but it wasn't until they met up at a hair salon that their first collaboration came together.
The Rocky and Terminator actors had talked about uniting on screen for 20 years, Schwarzenegger said on Friday, but never found the right script at a time when they were both free of other commitments.
"There was always something off. The script was not right, or the studio was not as much interested in it as we were... It just didn't happen," Schwarzenegger said at a Television Critics Association meeting, where he appeared to promote an upcoming documentary on ESPN website Grantland.com.
"Then one day I was sitting at my hairdresser, and Sly came up to me and he said 'Oh man, it would be so great if you could be doing just a little bit of something in my Expendables movie," said the 65-year old actor-turned politician.
