Jean-Claude Van Damme is too interesting and "natural" for your boring questions. And he wants to use the restroom. So that's it, Australia. You failed.
J-C recently walked out of a live interview with Australia's Channel Seven, which he was taping via a video link from Bangkok. He didn't seem offended by questions about his ex Kylie Minogue and his training, he was just bored by the banality of them. He wanted to just get to Oz himself and be more natural with the people.
Watch the interview clip:
As he explained....
"You are talking to a guy who's very rough, you know. I've been -- let me talk. It's good for the people, they can hear that. Let me talk, please. Because those questions you've been asking me, the press, they've 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. I'm 55 years old. ... So I've got a different POV of life and we'll talk about this in Australia. But those interview you are giving me on TV right now are boring. Because the questions are boring. And it's difficult for me to answer those questions so I start to sweat, I don't feel good, because they are boring. OK, next question. You have something interesting to ask me? OK, can I go to restroom? Bye bye. ... Don't shoot. Cut. The f--k is going on in 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?"
He's too sexy for this shirt, this video, your questions, everything. But is he a "diva" or is that word reserved for other people in other contexts? Either way, he's wrong -- that was not a boring interview. He made what was probably going to be a boring morning show segment into some pretty interesting TV. He's just a natural at it!
