Sylvester Stallone asked for privacy in July after his son Sage died, but with "The Expendables 2" about to open, the action star is back in the spotlight and saying a few words.
His 36-year-old son's passing was "tough," Stallone said Tuesday on "Good Morning America," where he appeared with his "Expendables" costars. "It's very, very tough."
Still, life goes on. "If you have good friends and your family support, it's just something that — it's a horrible situation — but time hopefully will heal and you try to get through it," he said.
"It's something that's a reality of life."
Reality hit Sly Stallone hard July 13, when Sage Stallone's body was found at the latter's Studio City home. The cause of death is still under investigation, though foul play was not suspected. Police were looking into the source of large, empty prescription pill bottles that were found at the home, and results of toxicology tests are still pending from an autopsy conducted shortly after the body was found.
