You’re all set! Sylvester Stallone faces stiff fines after trying to bring vials of a muscle-building hormone into Australia. Lawyers for Stallone, the 60-year-old star of the “Rocky” and “Rambo” movie franchises, represented him in a Sydney court Tuesday where he faces one charge of importing a banned substance. Stallone and his entourage were stopped and detained at Sydney airport Feb. 16 as he arrived for a promotional visit, while customs officials searched bags and confiscated items. His hotel room was searched and more items confiscated three days later. Human growth hormone is officially considered a performance-enhancing drug in Australia and it cannot be imported without a permit from the Therapeutic Goods Administration.
