When you are an actor, you have to do same interview over and over again. It is just the interviewer that changes up. Well after 20 years, Jean-Claude Van Damme has had enough. The Martial Artist was doing a satellite interview from Bangkok with Australia’s Sunrise and they made the mistake of asking him about working with Aussie Kylie Minogue in Street Fighter over 20 years ago.
He told the anchors, “Yeah, I like Kylie, I like everybody, can I please come to Australia and talk to you? Yeah I like Kylie. Sorry guys, I cannot do this anymore. You are talking to a guy who’s very rough, you know? Let me talk, it’s good for the people to hear this, let me talk please. Because those questions, the press have been asking me the same questions for the past 25 years. Kylie? How’s your training? How’s your this? How’s your that? So I’m coming to Australia to maybe do something different with the audience.”
Then he elaborated, “Those interview you are giving me on TV right now, they are very boring. Because the question are boring. It’s difficult for me to answer the question so I sweat, I don’t feel good, because they are boring. I knew this, OK. Next question? You have something interesting to ask me? OK, gotta go to the restroom. Bye bye.”
Concluding his rant with, “What the f**k is going on with Australia? What the f**k is going on? I cannot do this, I’m too natural, you can blow this stuff away. What is this?”
You can can’t blame him. It’s like someone asking you what was it like going to college with so and so that you had one class with after 20 years, you are like how the f*ck do I remember? And being asked that same question over and over again when you are there to talk about something else would get really frustrating really fast. There is only so long someone can fake it and after a quarter of century he can’t fake it anymore.
Granted, if I was the person interviewing him and he had that meltdown, I would have walked off the set and run to the bathroom to cry. But since it wasn’t me, I can respect him for saying he has had enough.
U3cL49W518 had some fun and edited a scene from Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Bloodsport and added the music from a Mentos commercial together, and what we got was pure happiness! Who knew the two would go so well hand and hand together, but they do. So sit back and let this fauxmmercial put a big smile on your face. Kind of like when you bite down on Mentos! Now I am craving one.
Jean-Claude Van Damme was on Conan tonight and the TBS late night show host admitted that he loves the action star’s dance moves in Kickboxer. Then Conan O’Brien asked if he can still move like that. Yes, he can and he showed us that he can. I don’t know why, but there is something so sexy seeing him groove like that. Don’t you find it hot?
Hopefully, we will get more of that in Kickboxer 2. I will be there on day one to see it to find out.
We all saw Jean-Claude Van Damme do a split between two driving trucks on the ground. Then we saw Channing Tatum split something when he attempted it between two carts. Now we are seeing Chuck Norris do it between two planes balancing 11 men on his cowboy hat in the sky to wish us a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Ladies and gentlemen, that is why Chuck Norris is the man. No one will be able to top that. Unless Sandra Bullock or George Clooney do a split between two satellites in outer space in order to try to get votes for their movie to win awards at the Golden Globe, SAG and of course the Oscars.
We all know that Jean-Claude Van Damme can do the most amazing side splits for a man and Volvo used that talent to demonstrate how perfect their new Volvo FM trucks are. They had the martial artist do one of his testicle defying splits inbetween two of their trucks as they were driving backwards. They did this to prove the stability and precision of Volvo Dynamic Steering Technology. So watch as he risks his ability to have kids and a high voice to advertise how on target Volvo is with the steering inside their trucks.
