Action star Sylvester Stallone made it through the heady days of his Rocky and RAMBO fame because his family helped keep him grounded.

Spy Kids 3-D: GAME OVER star Sly met his third wife, actress JENNIFER FLAVIN, on the set of ROCKY V. They married in 1997 and have three children, while he has two more with second wife SASHA CZACK.

The big man explains, "I have a great family life, a wonderful wife who gets smarter every day, and my three daughters.

"You know, the KORAN says a man with three little girls goes directly to heaven when he dies, as he will already have endured in life enough worry and paranoia. But it has dawned on me that your life works from your roots. My family has saved my sanity."
