IT'S A GOOD LIFE

UPS AND DOWNS

Meanwhile, the actress' daughter Toni was born from her union with her second husband, Tony Fiilti. Sadly, she passed away on August 26, 2012, after fighting a long battle with lung cancer. 

While Jackie's life seems to be perfect, she has endured a fair share of tragedy. She went through a painful period when Sylvester was born on July 6, 1946.

When she was going through labor to give birth to Sylvester, a physician severed his facial nerve on the left side. The baby's lip, chin, and half of the tongue were paralyzed. 

Sylvester grew up with a lopsided mouth, droopy eyes, and a speech impediment. His childhood was far from perfect with constant bullying by his friends. On top of that, his parents didn't exactly shower him with love.

At the age of 15, he got into bodybuilding. His first set of weights was an automobile axle and that is how he started gaining those muscles that his fans so admire. 

In the years that followed, Sylvester turned to acting but he wasn't having any luck with that career choice. It wasn't until he was 29 that he got his first break in the movie named "Rocky." Today, the actor's net worth amounts to a whopping $500 million.
