In ‘Rhinestone,’ Sylvester Stallone enjoyed working with Dolly Parton, but the film’shattered my internal corn meter into smithereens.’

Though Sylvester Stallone and Dolly Parton formed a strong friendship onscreen and off, the Rambo star revealed that the storyline changed a little after a famous director was replaced in the 1984 film Rhinestone.

“And it was supposed to be shot in New York, down and dirty, with Dolly and me acting like two antagonists brought together by fate.”

Stallone had hoped for more edgy music in the film and had even approached a popular rock band at the time to have some of their songs included.
