Sylvester Stallone missed The Godfather because the studio said he wasn’t the “type of man”.

Sylvester Stallone made the studio an offer they turned down.

The 76-year-old actor told Empire in an interview how he asked Paramount to star in the background of The Godfather’s iconic wedding scene.

In the scene, Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando) hosts a grand wedding for his daughter Connie (Talia Shire) at the family’s lavish estate.

“I went to Paramount and said, ‘Can I be an extra in the wedding scene?'” revealed the Rocky star. “They said, ‘Yeah, we don’t know if you’re that guy.’ I say, ‘I’m not that guy? To play in the background and hide behind a frigging wedding cake?”

The Godfather is celebrating his 50th anniversary this year and played Brando, Shire, Al Pacino, Robert Duvall and James Caan, who passed away earlier this year.

Stallone eventually worked with Shire in his incredibly successful Rocky films. She played his character’s love interest in the films.

Stallone went on to talk about his upcoming gangster project, Tulsa King, in which he plays a mob capo.

“Everything comes to those who wait,” Stallone said. “He’s very attached to the Western, but how is it manifesting across the country? OK, grab a gangster and put it right next to a cactus and let the fun begin.”

Alongside Tulsa King, Stallone will soon be reprising his role as Barney Ross from the first three Expendables films for the fourth film in the series.

While his professional career is going well, Stallone is dealing with a very difficult divorce.

Jennifer Flavin, 54, filed for divorce from Stallone after 25 years of marriage, just days before DailyMail.com revealed the actor had a huge tattoo of Flavin on his right bicep, complete with a picture of Butkus, Rocky’s bulldog from the hit films, was covered .

It was revealed on Tuesday that Stallone, 76, has denied Flavin’s claims that he was “engaged in the willful squandering, depletion and/or squandering of marital assets which has had an adverse economic impact on the marital estate,” reports PEOPLE.

In court documents filed in Palm Beach County, Fla., Stallone’s legal representatives said the actor was “not involved” in this type of behavior.

Stallone also turned down his estranged wife’s request for “exclusive use” of their Palm Beach home.

Flavin previously requested sole use of the palatial property as the divorce unfolded.

Regarding legal costs and attorneys’ fees, Flavin urged the court to look to the “conduct of each party” that could potentially prolong the process. She urged the court to encourage “mutual collaboration” to “reduce the costs” of legal matters.

Stallone said in his response that Flavin “hired an attorney to represent them and agreed to pay them their legal fees.”

The Rambo star didn’t oppose her petition to “restore” her maiden name and also agreed that their marriage was “broken apart beyond recovery”.
