When it comes to being a girl dad it does not matter if you are a common man or a star as big as Sylvester Stallone. Every father is protective, and sometimes over-protective, of their daughters who just can’t seem to grow up in their eyes. After all, they will always be daddy’s little girls. The same goes for Sylvester Stallone’s daughters, Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet.

While it is already difficult for a guy to meet his girlfriend’s father, the terror must reach new heights when the dad in question is none other than Rocky Balboa. His daughters give an insight into their father’s intimidation tactics for when their boyfriends come over.

The two older daughters of Sylvester Stallone, Sophia Stallone and Sistine Stallone, recently joined the Giggly Squad podcast for an episode. In that episode, the two discussed how their father intimidates their boyfriends by using psychological tactics. Sistine stated,

“He’s very standoffish when we first bring men home, and we rarely do. We’re like, ‘Oh this [guy] is a good egg. We’re gonna bring him home.’ And he’s always standoffish, stands in a corner, doesn’t say anything, we’re like, ‘Dad, come on…’ Literally stands in the corner just to intimidate.”

Her sister, Sophia, added that Stallone would even use cigars to appear more menacing. She stated, “He’ll have a cigar like he’s head of security.” She also stated that Stallone is only okay with his youngest daughter, Scarlet’s, boyfriends.

Standing in the corner of the room and staring at the guys is not enough for Stallone. He needs to show them who is in charge and give them a taste of what will happen if they hurt his girls. Talking to Daily Express, Stallone stated that he greets the boyfriends with a handshake that is so strong it changes the color of their faces.

“I do a thing called the Crushing The Hand test. I work my hands very much and they are very strong. So when I meet her date I really clamp down – and they are not ready for it. I see their faces changing color because they wanna be Alpha dog and I know they’ll never forget it. It’s not intentional, but when you have a daughter, it’s a form of temporary insanity.”

Stallone knows what he is doing and why he’s being so intimidating. In the podcast, Sistine stated that when she asked the Rambo actor why he does what he does, his answer was simple – he knows how to spot the bad apples in the basket. She stated, “He goes, ‘I can tell within the first four minutes of meeting him if he’s going to last or not.” Sistine then bowed down to her dad’s instincts stating, “He’s right every time.”


Well, there you have it. If anyone reading this wants to ask Stallone’s daughters out on a date, you’re gonna have to go through their father first. And it’s not going to be easy. After all, he is 5 foot 10 inches tall and weighs 185 pounds!
