For most of us, Christmas Day means hanging out with a whole bunch of boring relatives alternating between eating, drinking and napping. But it's a bit different when you're the kind of person who might be expecting a casual visit from Hollywood royalty.

Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger were famously arch rivals in the 80s and 90s, both fighting to be top dog in the competitive action film industry.

According to the Guardian, Sylvester Stallone even admitted he held a 'violent hatred' for rival action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger during their 1980s heyday.

But things have changed, BIG time. Here they are, hanging out on Christmas Day:

D'awww.

Sylvester Stallone posted a snap to Instagram yesterday of him and Arnie enjoying Christmas Day together, looking like they were having the bestest time together.

The caption read: "Well look who drop by on Christmas! @schwarzenegger always fills the room with positive energy!"

Arnie was dressed in a nice, seasonal red jumper, while Sly was keeping it classic with a crisp white shirt. Two Hollywood legends in one room, looking festively dapper.

Stallone also got our attention on Instagram recently when he posted a photo of him and Lundgren, saying: "Shooting a commercial with Dolph today... Getting ready for working with the big man in CREED 2."

The two will be reprising their famous roles for the sequel to Creed - which is meant to be our generation's Rocky. But not only will they be standing in sidelines, cheering on their respective fighters, they'll actually get a shot at each other as well.

TMZ Sports approached Sly in August asking him what sort of shit would be going down, and the 71-year-old wasn't shy when answering.

"It wouldn't be a party without Drago, would it?" Stallone said. "I'm gonna punch him. You know I gotta hit Drago once."

The film is expected to premiere in mid-November next year, and fans are still trying to work out what it's going to be about. The synopsis online is pretty clear, but doesn't give too much away: "Adonis Creed tries to seek revenge when he goes toe to toe with the man who killed his father."

In the meantime, we're wondering which famous mate Sly might be going on a Boxing Day walk with? Hopefully one with dogs, because walks are always better with a couple of dogs.
