This is probably one of the craziest reasons ever heard as to why an individual walked out of a TV interview.
Well, Jean-Claude Van Damme’s recent interview with an Australian TV didn’t go well. He had a chat with the hosts of Aussie morning talk show “Sunrise”, but he cut short the question-and-answer session and dissed the interviewers for asking “boring” questions.
According to Aceshowbiz, the actor had got bad vibes since the beginning of the interview. “Guys, you are talking behind the cameras,” he chastised people on the show. “I’m online talking to you and I have people behind that camera talking about … because I’m sweating and everything.”
But it was a question about Kylie Minogue that turned him off. Van Damme worked with the Australian singer/actress in the 1994 action movie “Street Fighter”. In 2012, he revealed about his on-set tryst with his female co-star during the filming in Thailand.
“Yeah, I like Kylie. I like everybody. … Sorry, guys, I cannot do this anymore. You are talking to a guy who’s very rough, you know. Let me talk,” he said. “The press, they have been asking me the same questions for the last 25 years. How’s Kylie? How’s the training? How’s your this? How’s your that?”
“Those interviews you are giving me on TV right now, they are very boring because the questions are very boring,” he went on. “It’s difficult for me to answer those questions so I start to sweat, I don’t feel good because they are boring and I knew this. OK, next question. You have something interesting to ask me?”
“What the f**k is going on with Australia?” he cursed before taking off his microphone and saying that he needed to go to the bathroom.
