TREATED WITH KID GLOVES Sly

Why would a big movie star like Sylvester Stallone let a seedy supermarket tabloid like the Globe interview him about his recent arrest for importing human growth hormone?

Maybe because he was assured in advance of being asked kittenish questions such as: "It's hard to believe you're 61 next month. What's your secret to looking so fit and healthy?" And: "You're very smart. You paint, and your IQ is through the roof. Did you have to hide your intelligence so you could make your characters more believable?"

Or maybe it's because the Globe is owned by American Media Inc., which used to publish Sly, Stallone's vanity magazine, and which still publishes Muscle & Fitness and Flex, where he has advertised his InStone brand of bodybuilding supplements (and various flavors of protein pudding). (An AMI spokesman says InStone no longer advertises in its magazines.)
