Sylvester Stallone expresses pride as one of the few remaining 1980s action stars still active in Hollywood.

During the premiere of his documentary “Sly” at the Toronto International Film Festival, Entertainment Tonight Canada asks Stallone about his feelings regarding the tribute to his career.

Stallone responds, “You can’t be prepared for this. The longevity of my career is mind-blowing. I don’t know how much longer I can keep going. Society and cinema are changing, it’s becoming faster. So longevity is valuable.”

He further adds, “I see myself as the last of the dinosaurs. I’m proud of that. But it’s something to really think about. It’s been almost 50 years. I don’t take it for granted, but I want to spend the rest of my time with my loved ones.”

Stallone attends the premiere with his wife of 26 years, Jennifer Flavin. He emphasizes the importance of sharing life with someone and declares Flavin as his main reward.
