FAME FILES: You're so vein! Sylvester Stallone shows off his VERY sinewy arms as he goes on beach stroll with his wife Jennifer Flavin

He is well known for his extremely muscular frame.

And Sylvester Stallone's famous pectorals looked even more distinctive than usual as he headed out for a beachside stroll with his glamorous wife Jennifer Flavin along a beach in Saint-Tropez in France on Sunday.

The star's arm looked extremely bumpy and veiny as he waved to crowds on the beach in the exclusive resort, while Flavin looked stunning in a pair of black hotpants, creamy white blouse and strappy sandals.

The actor has previously admitted taking human growth hormone and testosterone to get buff for his role in Rambo.

'HGH (human growth hormone) is nothing,' the actor told Time magazine back in 2008.

'Anyone who calls it a steroid is grossly misinformed - testosterone to me is so important for a sense of well-being when you get older,' he added.

'Everyone over 40 years old would be wise to investigate it because it increases the quality of your life. Mark my words. In 10 years it will be over the counter.'


Prominent veins, such as Stallone's, are often the result of very low body fat and occur most often on body builders and athletes.


The veins usually occur as a result of weight bearing exercises. The body needs to pump oxygen into the veins for these kinds of exercises and this causes the veins to expand.


When a person exercises heavily and diets strenuously the fat gets stripped away and the veins can become exposed.
