Sistine Stallone, the daughter of Sylvester Stallone, said that most of her dates don’t get in touch with her after seeing her father.
The actor, his wife Jennfier Flavin, and his three children, Sophia (26), Sistine (24), and Scarlet (20), appeared on Today on Wednesday to talk about their new reality series, The Family Stallone. The three 20-somethings opened up to co-host Hoda Kotb on what it’s like to date when your father is so well-known.
Sistine said that dating has been “difficult” for her, especially after potential suitors meet her father.
The majority of the time when people come over to meet the parents, she added, “they don’t necessarily return because he’s just so scary,” as she described her father as being rather intimidating.
Sistine agreed with Flavin when he said that she is “nice” when she meets her daughter’s dates, but she highlighted that her father isn’t like that. He “doesn’t say hello” to these folks, she said.
The 76-year-old gave an explanation of his reluctance to meet his daughter’s potential partners.
He said, “I don’t trust their motives.” “Because I am aware of men.”
Scarlet agreed with Flavin’s comment that she had “a really nice boyfriend” that Sylvester enjoys before complimenting her father’s connection with her partner.
They got along beautifully and are now best friends, Scarlet added. Then Sylvester made a facetious remark about his “matching tattoos” with his daughter’s lover.
The actor also made a joke about his daughters’ potential love lives, saying, “I’m hoping they end up being spinsters. On that, I’m working. They never leave their house.
Sylvester has three kids and a son, Seargeoh, 44, who he shares with his ex-wife Sasha Czack. Sage, the oldest son of the former spouse, passed away from a heart attack in 2012 at the age of 36.
Earlier in his interview on Today, Sylvester said that he had informed his daughters about the publicity their family’s reality programme would bring them.
I told him, “Your quiet time is over, and once you’re exposed outside, it’s outside,” he recalled. “You’ll have guys asking you, ‘Hello, how are you?’” as they follow you home.
Sistine said of her father’s worries, “He’s very concerned about our safety.”
Sylvester jokingly said that he could “never win an argument” with his wife and girls when asked about the “most difficult part” of his connection with them.
However, he did share the “best part” of sharing a home with four ladies.
They’re just amusing. They are extroverted, he remarked. They express themselves, which is excellent, and they are by no means mute.
Sylvester has already spoken openly about his relationship with his children. He applauded Sophia for overcoming her phobia of spiders in September 2022 by posting a video of her holding one on Instagram.
“My admirably courageous daughter, @sophiastallone, is going for it! I’m really happy for my daughters! [sic]” Stallone wrote the post’s caption. “So happy with my girls!”
After seeing the footage, Sophia commented: “I’m genuinely more afraid of spiders after doing that.
