With every new project comes the inevitable interview to promote it and for some, the idea of taping an interview in a superficial setting is far too much to bear. Case in point: action star and Donald Trump supporter Jean-Claude Van Damme.
The 55-year old, who was in Bangkok, sat down for a satellite interview with the Australian show Sunrise to promote his "Unplugged and Unscripted" speaking tour, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Van Damme was not having it with the camera crew, who were reportedly talking behind the camera about how sweaty he was as the interview got underway.
He also wasn’t feeling the questions, which apparently weren’t that interesting. "Sorry guys I cannot do this anymore," he said while getting up. "The press, they have been asking me the same questions for the last 25 years. You have something interesting to ask me?"
The “Muscle From Brussels” then ripped off his microphone and added, “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?”
He joins a long list of celebrities who reached their limit with questions, including Robert Downey Jr. who stepped out of a Channel 4 interview after a reporter would not stop asking about his personal life. When asked if he regretted it, the Avengers star told Howard Stern, "I just wish I'd left sooner."
