The 69-year-old has not enjoyed achieving senior citizen status and would rather have his youth than the wisdom that comes with age, even though he accepts he is more wise these days, reports

Asked the best and worst things about getting older, Stallone said: "The best thing about getting older is...nothing. There's zero good in getting older.

He further explained: "I like that every day I forget something new. You do benefit from wisdom and I think your soul grows a little bit, and you become a bit more tolerant, and more forgiving.

"I remember my father, who was a very tough man, on his deathbed. His final words to me were: 'Just learn to forgive. Just don't be angry. Just learn to forgive.' I went, 'Wow, OK.' So there is wisdom, and you understand that you should try to really enjoy the ride while it's still spinning."
