[ # ] Jean-Claude Van Damme is over boring interviews!
July 29th, 2016 under Jean-Claude Van Damme

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.
