In 2017, she was then selected as an ambassador of the Golden Globe Awards and joined her sisters in being named Miss Golden Globe to complement her duties. In recent months, she has expressed a desire to follow her mother into becoming an entrepreneur once her modeling career is over. She is inspired by the likes of Kylie Jenner, who became very successful in business with her focus on the beauty industry.
Father – Sylvester Stallone
Sylvester grew up in Manhattan, New York, USA, where his mother worked as a women’s wrestling promoter while his father was a beautician. He is of Italian descent through his father, and of Jewish and French descent on his mother’s side. From an early age, he suffered from partial paralysis of his face due to complications during his delivery as a baby. These roles would become some of his most iconic as he developed a career in entertainment.
He attended Lincoln High School and later attended Charlotte Hall Military Academy. After graduating from high school, he enrolled at Miami Dade College and then completed his studies at the University of Miami.
While briefly living in Switzerland, he landed his first professional acting role in “Downhill Racer”, though it went uncredited. It inspired him to pursue an acting career, although he was denied any roles for a while, leaving him nearly broke and homeless. This convinced him to appear in his first feature film, the infamous porn movie “The Party at Kitty and Stud’s”, but which did not contain any pornographic scenes compared to today’s standards.

He has won numerous awards for his work, including a Golden Globe, and has been nominated for an Academy Award three times.
