Hollywood action star Sylvester Stallone says he has barred his three teenage daughters from dating until they are in their 40s. The 68-year-old 'Expendables' actor - who has Sophia, 18, Sistine, 16, and Scarlet, 13, with wife Jennifer Flavin, realised he was not going to be an "accepting" father when his eldest daughter was called by a boy four years ago, reported Female First.

"I told my three daughters they weren't allowed to date until their mid-40s but that's not going down well... The first time a boy called Sophia was when she was 14. I realised I wasn't going to be an accepting father. He said, 'Where's Sophia?' I said, 'She's in Egypt and she'll be there forever.' Everyone started yelling at me."

The 68-year-old star said his daughters have not listened to his warning and he ended up in a "battle" with Sophia's current boyfriend when they met for the first time.

"I've finally met Sophia's first boyfriend. He's 18. We shook hands and I said, 'No, you've got to learn to squeeze harder than that pal.' We got into a hand squeezing battle."
