Jean-Claude Van Damme Storms Out Of TV Interview


Hollywood star Jean-Claude Van Damme clearly was not feeling it during a recent interview with an Australian television show, Sunrise. The 55-year-old actor stormed out of the interview while ripping off his microphone and using profanities to lecture the interviewers and camera operators on etiquette.

The star, also known as the "Muscles from Brussels," was sick of answering the same questions over and over again. "Sorry guys I cannot do this anymore," Van Damme stated. "The press, they have been asking the same questions for the last 25 years. You have something interesting to ask me?"

The Universal Soldier and Bloodsport star actor went off on the interviewers when they then questioned him about his training and previous castmates in other films. "Those questions you've been asking me, the press, they've been asking me the same questions for the last 25 years," the actor said. "['Street Fighter' co-star] Kylie [Minogue], how's your training? How's your this? How's your that?"

He was doing the satellite interview to promote a speaking tour in Australia titled "Unplugged and Unscripted," when he had finally decided he had enough of the boring questions.

As he was coming out of his seat and removing his microphone, Van Damme exclaimed, "What the f*** is going on with Australia? What the f*** is going on? I cannot do this, I'm too natural. You can blow this stuff away. What is this?"
