"Comedy will be different in Europe or America, so my movies are very international. I’m a brand name. Van Damme is like Levi's."
Van Damme is like an idiot. I'm trying to remember the last time I even saw a film of his. Sure he was popular back in the 80's and early 90's. Hell back then even Steven Seagal and Arnold Schwarzenegger were famous. Hell we let anyone be famous back then as long as they could kick the crap out of someone or hold a gun.
Now though, Jean Claude just seems like he is trying to hang on to his past glory. The guy is 46, but at least he hasn't made Universal Soldier 7 yet unlike some action stars who should hang it up. Say, Sylvester Stallone. Yes, he's obnoxious, and yes he's been married like 5 or 6 times including I think twice to the same woman. He has lived with three or four additional women and allegedly slept with thousands, so I guess he thinks he is a bigger brand than Levi's. He probably takes his Levi's off more than just about anyone else so I guess he should know.
For the record Jean Claude feels he may have overacted in some of his earlier films. Umm, yeah. But you know what, I don't give a crap. I don't think people were watching Bloodsport thinking there was going to be an Academy Award nomination coming out of it.
