Tourists get knockout photo of Stallone atop ‘Rocky’ steps

January 20, 2015

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A group of tourists who ran up the “Rocky” steps in Philadelphia got a knockout photo at the top — a selfie with Rocky himself.

Peter Rowe says he and two college friends had just finished racing up the Philadelphia Museum of Art staircase Saturday when they saw Sylvester Stallone. He says Stallone joked the three friends were so fast they were making him look bad and then he posed for a selfie with them.

Stallone made the Art Museum steps famous in his first turn as fictional boxer Rocky Balboa, who used them in his training regimen.

Stallone is in Philadelphia for the shooting of “Creed,” the latest installment in the series. It stars Michael B. Jordan as the grandson of early Rocky foe Apollo Creed.
