Jean-Claude Van Damme lost his cool before launching into a sweary rant and storming out of an Aussie TV interview.
The ‘Muscles from Brussels’ was promoting his Australian speaking tour on breakfast TV show Sunrise, when he lost his shit, reports The Mirror.
Van Damme said he was sick of being asked about his training schedule and his ‘relationship’ with Kylie Minogue.
Sorry guys, I cannot do this any more. You are talking to a guy who is very rough, you know – let me talk – it’s good for the people to hear it.
Those questions you’ve been asking me, the press, they’ve been asking me the same questions for the last 25 years: Kylie, How’s your training? How’s your this? How’s your that?
Obviously now pretty upset, he went on to repeat his age (55) a couple of times and to highlight how old he is (55) by also stating a few ages that he isn’t: “I’m 55 years old. I’m not 35, 25. I’m 55.”
He then accused the interviewers of being ‘boring’, saying the questions were ‘difficult to answer’ before going on to describe the symptoms of food poisoning:
The interview you are giving me on TV right now is very boring and the questions are boring and it’s difficult for me to answer them so I start to sweat and don’t feel so good.
Then, with a final expletive laden, cryptic parting shot he declared he was ‘too natural’ (insert your own plastic surgery joke here) and got the hell out of there.
Sounding like a foul-mouthed, confused grandparent he said:
What the fuck is going on with Australia? What the fuck is going on? I cannot do this, I’m too natural. You can blow this stuff away. What is this?
Bad day, Jean-Claude?
