Jean Claude Van Damme Storms Out of Interview in Australia


Note to journalists: Jean-Claude Van Damme does not have time for your "boring" questions.

The Bloodsport star shut down reporters while appearing via satellite on the Australian morning show Sunrise on Thursday. As he went off on questions regarding ex Kylie Minogue and Australia in general, the cameras kept rolling -- well, until he stormed off set, that is.

"Sorry guys, I cannot do this anymore," the Belgian-born actor begins, pleading for the camera crew to "let him talk." "The press, they have been asking me the same questions for the last 25 years," he continued. "Kylie [Minogue], how's your training? How's your this? How's your that? They are boring. OK, next question. You have something interesting to ask me?"

But it was too late. Van Damme stood up, ripped the mic from his shirt and ended what seemed like a very painful several minutes for everyone involved.

"What the f**k is going on with Australia?" he asked, after declaring, "I cannot do this. I'm too natural." Not to mention, he noted during the interview, at the more mature age of 55 -- "not 35, 25" -- he has a "different view of life," which apparently includes not answering questions that aren't stimulating to him.

"It's difficult for me to answer those questions so I start to sweat. I don't feel good because they're not very -- they are boring," he said.

According to Sunrise, the actor is heading Down Under for a speaking engagement called "Unplugged and Unscripted." Perhaps this was a rehearsal?
