London: Action star Sylvester Stallone was planning to follow the footsteps of his friend Arnold Schwarzenegger and join politics, before his wife stopped him from doing so.
The 69-year-old "Creed" star says his wife convinced him it was a silly idea and asked him to stay with the day job, reported Digital Spy.
"I said to my wife, 'What do you think?' She said, 'Are you crazy? He's just being nice. You're not going to be elected. You don't have that insatiable need to be embraced by people'," Stallone said.
