Did you know that SUSAN SARANDON was originally up for the part of Adrian? As we know, she didn’t get the part. Funny thing is it had nothing to do with her skills as an actor! They thought she was “too pretty” for the part! Enter Talia Shire… ROCKY-June-SARANDON The scene where Rocky and Adrian kiss in Rocky’s kitchen was originally not written the way it was shot. Talia Shire had come down with the flu and was worried about getting Stallone sick and was very hesitant to kiss him. Her hesitation and behavior was actually such a natural reaction versus the scripted scene that they decided to keep it. This scene had become one of Stallone’s favorites in the entire Rocky film series! ROCKYjune-adrian-kiss
