It's heart-warming to hear that Hollywood heavyweight action heroes Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger are good friends off-screen and enjoy 'goofing around and being crazy' when they hook up.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Stallone spoke about his bromance with the Terminator. He said: "Arnold's very wise and he loves to talk about philosophies which have got him to where he is. It's good to talk to a man who actually has put his money where his mouth is and he's achieved that.

"Then we start goofing around and being crazy — just laughing at the old times.

"I told him, 'We are the last two tyrannosaurus.' We're the last two meat-eaters and there's not much beef left out there. So we better enjoy each other."

The Expendables star can be seen hanging out with Arnie during this year's Halloween carving pumpkins. Stallone wrote on social media: "Myself and my great friend Arnold @schwarzenegger spending time at his amazing office Carving Pumpkin Heads for Halloween with Survival Knives!!! That’s what real ACTION guys do with their free time! Lol."

Speaking about the rumour that Schwarzenegger tricked Stallone into signing up for 1992's Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot in order to have a flop film on his acting CV, he explained: "Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot was supposed to be like Throw Momma From the Train with the mum as this really nasty piece of work. Instead you hire the nicest woman in Hollywood, Estelle Getty, who you wish was your mother. That's the end of that! Also, I had heard Schwarzenegger was going to do that movie and I said, 'I'm going to beat him to it'. I think he set me up."

Schwarzenegger admitted: "It's 100 percent true. In those days we did all kinds of crazy things to get ahead in our rivalry. Luckily for us and everyone else, today, we root for each other. Thank God, because we sure don't ever need another Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot."
