Reunited: Apollo And Rocky

Sylvester Stallone and Carl Weathers appeared at the 2017 Golden Globes.

“I can’t believe it’s been 40 years,” Weathers, 68, told the crowd.

“I can’t believe I let you win the fight, considering I wrote the screenplay,” Stallone quipped in response.

The duo then presented the Golden Globe for best motion picture, drama, to Moonlight — the same award Rocky won four decades earlier.

“It doesn’t seem like it’s been 40 years. It seems like it was just yesterday, but it is just such an honor people still love the film,” Weathers told PEOPLE before the awards show. “It’s fantastic to stand on the stage together again after all these years. It’s really like a dream because people come and go in Hollywood, and to be here 40 years later and to have a career that started even before that … Man, it’s wild.”

So apparently both men have buried the hatchet after in the 2000s Stallone referred to Carl Weathers as Apollo Greed, when Weathers demanded five trucks full of money to appear in Rocky Balboa.
