OK, so Sylvester Stallone was caught with banned substances (i.e. steroids) in Australia. He had 48 vials of human growth hormone which seems like a lot and probably is. He's an old man desperately trying to hold onto the shadow of his youth and he is the only movie star to ever take steroids, ever.

Could you imagine what it would be like if other Hollywood stars took performance enhancing substances?
Like, oh, I don't know, these guys:

Ed Norton? He might be drinking too many lattes, but that's it.

Yeah, I think Brad Pitt does HGH. And that's not his next co-starlet's initials, either.

Spiderman? He's on a high-protein diet...he just takes too many shots in the mouth from steroidal Venice Beach freaks.
