How Sly dined Arnie for years to make ‘The Expendables` comeback
London: Sylvester Stallone has revealed that he persuaded Arnold Schwarzenegger to come out of retirement for one last action movie after dinning with him `for years`.
Arnie Schwarzenegger, the current holder of the office, agreed to make a cameo appearance in ‘The Expendables’ only after a long and determined campaign its director Stallone waged in some of the finest restaurants in the state, Stallone, 64, who also stars in the film told at the premiere at the Odeon, Leicester Square.
"I had lunch with Arnie every Saturday for, like, years," the Telegraph quoted him as saying.
"In the end I said if he turns me down, I am never going to eat with him again.”
“I thought he was going to say `no`, but he goes `Yaah!`" he added.
Schwarzenegger plays one of Stallone`s fellow mercenaries in the action film. Stallone says that there was a "tsunami of testosterone" on the set.
