Sylvester Stallone has ditched the jet-black hair dye and finally embraced his natural grey hair.

The 73-year-old debuted the new 'do in a video on Instagram on Tuesday and showcased his silver hair and beard while delivering an empowering message to his 11.7 million followers.

"Keep punching my friends," Stallone said while travelling in the back of a car. "Sometimes I wake up I feel like doing nothing. Just relaxing. Just very true. If anyone says different, they're lying - it's human nature. Then you roll over, get a little mad at yourself, and realise to get anywhere you've got to make a deposit in the GOAL BANK. So, I'll go back to my favourite phrase and do it!!"

Stallone originally planned to follow in the footsteps of his hairdresser father before he became a Hollywood star, and hairstylist Michelle Pugh told People back in 2017 that The Expendables star has even coloured the hair of his three daughters.

"He coloured Sistine and Sophia's hair blonde when they were younger, and Scarlet had some lightening he had done on her a few months back. He is very much the stamp of approval on whether or not we've done a good job," she shared.

Fans were supportive of Stallone's hair transformation, with one commenting: "Proud of you with the silver hair," while another wrote, "Stay true to the grey!! Looks good on ya!"
