Sylvester Stallone has ditched the jet-black hair dye and finally embraced his natural grey hair.

The 73-year-old debuted the new ‘do in a video on Instagram on Tuesday and showcased his silver hair and beard while delivering an empowering message to his 11.7 million followers.

“Keep punching my friends,” Stallone said while travelling in the back of a car. “Sometimes I wake up I feel like doing nothing. Just relaxing. Just very true. If anyone says different, they’re lying – it’s human nature. Then you roll over, get a little mad at yourself, and realise to get anywhere you’ve got to make a deposit in the GOAL BANK. So, I’ll go back to my favourite phrase and do it!!”

Stallone originally planned to follow in the footsteps of his hairdresser father before he became a Hollywood star, and hairstylist Michelle Pugh told People back in 2017 that The Expendables star has even coloured the hair of his three daughters.

“He coloured Sistine and Sophia’s hair blonde when they were younger, and Scarlet had some lightening he had done on her a few months back. He is very much the stamp of approval on whether or not we’ve done a good job,” she shared.

Fans were supportive of Stallone’s hair transformation, with one commenting: “Proud of you with the silver hair,” while another wrote, “Stay true to the grey!! Looks good on ya!”

Jason Statham: ‘I’m not really an actor, I just got lucky’

Jason Statham is surprised he’s managed to work in Hollywood for so long.

The 51-year-old has become famous for playing action heroes in blockbuster movies including The Expendables and the Fast and the Furious franchises.

But speaking to Britain’s Daily Star newspaper, Jason has confessed he doesn’t consider himself to be a proper actor.

“I am not an actor really – I used to work jewellery on the streets,” the star laughed. “I was a sportsman for years and I am not really some thespian that can chameleon himself into different roles. I just got into this by being at the right place at the right time.”

The star, who was part of Britain’s national diving team in the 1990 Commonwealth Games and has modelled for French Connection, Tommy Hilfiger, and Levi’s in various advertising campaigns, went on to admit his sudden ascent to fame means he’s never taken an acting class.

“I got plucked from obscurity into the movie industry – so it is not like I have spent years honing how to do different accents or ‘working on my craft’,” he considered. “That doesn’t apply to me. I accept what I am good at.”

Jason stars opposite Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Idris Elba in the action comedy Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, which hits cinemas from 31 July.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has found becoming a mother incredibly empowering.

The supermodel and her actor fiance Jason Statham became parents to their son Jack in June 2017, just months after Rosie celebrated her 30th birthday.

Speaking at the ELLE Weekender Event at London’s Saatchi Gallery on Sunday (02Dec18), she insisted that both of these life milestones have brought her true happiness.

“Every year I get older I feel so much more empowered in myself and I feel so much more confident,” she said. “Turning 30 and becoming a mum has just been so empowering for me. I feel really clear with what I want out of life. I feel happier than ever. I feel like you cut away the things that don’t make you happy and your priorities just shift massively.”

Rosie also spoke about the partnership she shares with Jason, whom she has been in a relationship with since 2010. Though The Expendables star is known for his tough guy image, she revealed that “he’s very entrepreneurial” and she consults him about every make-up product she plans to feature on Rose Inc. – her online beauty platform.

In particular, Rosie is a fan of quality skincare having encountered struggles with acne in the past.

“I think investing in a great skincare regime is really important,” she insisted. “For me, skin comes first as I’ve struggled with acne, in and out of it, through my adult life really. And so, I’m always striving for the best skin I can. It’s the canvas of everything I do.”

Other fashion stars including designer Diane von Furstenberg and model Leomie Anderson also spoke at the event.

Jason Statham had no fear swimming with sharks in The Meg

Jason Statham had no fear when he had to swim with sharks to prepare for his latest movie, The Meg.

The actor plays diver Jonas Taylor who is called upon to rescue a team of scientists and the local population from a 75-foot-long prehistoric shark called Megalodon. In a bid to prepare for his upcoming interactions with the sea monster, Jason flew to Fiji for a diving trip alongside a group of bull sharks. And the renowned tough-guy insisted he felt quite at home under the sea alongside the predators.

“To swim in close proximity to a big, three-metre shark, is to be recommended to all and everyone,” the 50-year-old said in an interview with the Daily Star. “You get very relaxed. When you’re in their environment, it’s quite a tranquil sort of thing. It’s remarkable to experience. All of the fear or the perceived fear is done in your own head before you get down there with them. Once you’re swimming down there with all the other divers, it’s phenomenal. It’s one of the greatest experiences you could have.”

The Expendables star swam with “20 or 30” of the sharks which were three metres in length, and believes the gargantuan scale of the creature at the heart of The Meg will go down a storm with cinema audiences.

“Who doesn’t want to watch a movie about the biggest shark that’s ever existed? And I get to be in it? This is as good as it gets,” he smiled, adding that viewers can expect a scuffle with the beast. “Fisticuffs with the megalodon? I’m not saying it doesn’t happen.”

Jason stars alongside Ruby Rose, Li Bingbing and Rainn Wilson in the flick, which is helmed by National Treasure: Book of Secrets director Jon Turteltaub.

The Meg hits cinemas on 10 August (18).
