Billionaire presidential candidate and hotel mogul Donald Trump may have received yet another big celebrity endorsement, this time from Rambo actor Sylvester Stallone.
In an interview with Variety, Stallone – who won a Golden Globe Sunday for his supporting role in the Rocky sequel Creed – professed that he “loved” Trump.
Although he’s been called a Republican, for supporting John McCain’s 2008 presidential run, Stallone says he’s not a member of the GOP. “May the best fighter win,” he said. “I don’t think you can be totally one-sided forever. Then you close your mind to all sorts of possibilities. It’s just, ‘Who comes along better at that time for what the planet is going through?’ Right now, it’s pretty confusing on every side.”
What does he think of the Republican frontrunner? “I love Donald Trump,” he said. “He’s a great Dickensian character. You know what I mean? There are certain people like Arnold, Babe Ruth, that are bigger than life. But I don’t know how that translates”—he let out a laugh—“to running the world.”
Stallone’s comments add him to a growing list of celebrities, including actress Aissa Wayne, the daughter of John Wayne, rocker Ted Nugent and Clint Eastwood, who have voiced positive comments about the frontrunner.
