Perhaps best known for the 1988 classic Bloodsport, or those really cringe-worthy adverts for Coors Light, Jean-Claude Van Damme has been around long enough to get away with being a bit big for his boots.

And that's exactly what he did during an interview in Australia last week. The Muscles from Brussels stomped out of the interview, because he was 'bored'.

The 55-year-old was doing an interview with daily Australian morning show, Sunrise and, naturally with the show being Australian, they wanted to know a bit more about his fling with stunning Aussie Kylie Minogue. Instead of just answering the question, he decided he'd had enough and left.

"Sorry guys," he said. "I cannot do this anymore. The press, they have been asking me the same questions for the last 25 years. Kylie, how's your training? How's your this? How's your that? They are boring." Alright, mate, calm down, they're just doing their jobs.

"Don't shoot. Cut." He said as he stormed off. Ooooo!

The CEO of Fast Track Events, which is promoting Van Damme on his ongoing speaking tour of Australia, told the Daily Mail Australia that Van Damme was hot and that's what caused the meltdown. Goran Kurkioski said: "There was no air-conditioning, he was hot, sweating and uncomfortable."

Considering he has been getting these questions for '25 years', I had no idea he used to date Kylie Minogue. Fair play to him, punching above his considerable weight there.
