Sylvester Stallone has been a boxer, a renegade soldier and an arm wrestling champion. But it's his latest role that's the most interesting because it seems to violate all principles of time and space.

During a trip to the Vatican, 20-year-old Harvard student Anthony Zonfrell noticed something peculiar and amazing in a wall mural that had been painted in 1511 by master painter Raphael.

The image shows Pope Gregory IX approving new Papal laws and in the background looking on is none other than Sly Stallone.

“As soon as we saw the painting, we knew it was him. My whole family thought it was hilarious. It could actually be a portrait of Stallone,” Zonfrell explained.

While this suggests the star of 'Stop, Or My Mom Will Shoot!' is immortal, he wouldn't be the first A-list actor who has been given the gift of eternal life, as other images have outed both Nic Cage and John Travolta as being alive long before their reported birth date. Someone needs to greenlit a time-traveling vampire movie with those three stat.

Check out the entire painting below. It's officially called 'The Cardinal and Theological Virtues,' but we like to think of it as 'Yo, Vatican.'
