Arnold admits rivalry with Sylvester helped in his career

In an interview with Harvey Levin, Arnold said, “There’s no two ways about that: He was very helpful in my career because I had something that I could chase.” Sylvester reacted to the same and added, “When he (Arnold) came along, I was like, finally, something to motivate me. Because he is, dare I say it, competition, a threat, whatever word you wanna use. As soon as I saw him, it was like bang, two alphas hitting. If we walked into a party, we’d be staring at each other for a few seconds, and then ‘I gotta get that guy. He didn’t do anything wrong but he will.’” The co-actors who starred in The Expendables also recalled how Sylvester threw a bouquet of flowers at Arnold at the Golden Globe awards. The former stated that he was surprised that Arnold won the Best Newcomer award as he felt Rocky was a better debut.
