London, January 06: It was one of Hollywood’s most famous rivalries, but Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger are now best buddies.

Schwarzenegger, the governor of California, will return to the silver screen with the film ‘Expendables’ directed by the ‘Rocky’ actor and the hatchet has long been buried, reported.

“He’s my best friend now. It’s strange, given what big rivals we used to be. He’s still ridiculously competitive, though. I have a watch, only one of its kind in the world, so I wore it to our last lunch. Arnold was desperate for me to get him one but I had to explain that wasn’t possible. He was so mad!” said the 63-year-old Stallone.

The plot of ‘The Expendables’ centres around a team of mercenaries heading to South America on a mission to overthrow a dictator.

It features a who’s who of veteran action actors including Arnold Schwarzenegger, 62, Bruce Willis, 54, Dolph Lundgren, 52, Mickey Rourke, 57, Jet Li, 46, as well as relative youngster Jason Statham, 37.

Stallone, who wrote the script and directed the movie, said that making the film was a testosterone filled adventure.

“Bruce’s character, who hires me to do the job the film’s based on, turns to me and says, “Look, there’s one person I need to talk with before I give you the job.” At which point Arnold, who plays my oldest rival, walks out. And the scene goes from there. But man, those guys were up for it,” said Stallone.
