Sylvester Stallone is dropping some major behind the scenes knowledge on his Instagram account.
The actor, 72, shared a photo of himself with turtles Cuff and Link on his Instagram page on May 5. In the post, he revealed they’ve been with him since his 1976 filmRocky.
Not only are Cuff and Link still alive and living a life of relative peace and splendor, but they also made their film comeback in Stallone’s 2018 filmCreed II.
“In CREED 2 with my original buddies from the first Rocky … CUFF and LINK, now about 44 years old!” Stallone wrote in the caption.
In Rocky, Stallone introduced them to his romantic interest Adrian Pennino (Talia Shire) as, “the exotic animals I was telling you about. These are my friends, Cuff and Link,” and forgetting that he had bought them from her.
