Veteran actor Sylvester Stallone has revealed that one of the main reasons he wants to make Rocky VI is to get back at all the people who tell him that he is too old to be in the movies.

He says that he hopes to prove a point to the critics who tell him to “step aside and age gracefully.”

The 58 year old actor, who will base the sixth installment of Rocky on the heavyweight champion George Foreman’s famous comeback fight, also said that the term ‘age gracefully’ really irks him.

“I’ve never thought there was anything graceful about ageing,” Herald Sun quoted him as saying to Maxim magazine.
