Jean-Claude Van Damme opens up about Kylie Minogue affair

'Sweet kiss, beautiful lovemaking,' he says of his dalliance with pint-sized pop princess

Action hero Jean-Claude Van Damme has admitted that he once had an affair with Kylie Minogue.

Speaking to the Guardian, Van Damme – who is currently promoting his new film The Expendables 2, which opens on August 16 – revealed that he and Minogue had enjoyed a relationship while filming the Street Fighter movie in 1994.

When quizzed about their relationship, the actor – who first hinted in 2007 that they had been involved romantically – said:

Yes. OK. Yes, yes, yes. It happened. I was in Thailand, we had an affair. Sweet kiss, beautiful lovemaking.


He went on to add: “It would be abnormal not to have had an affair, she’s so beautiful and she was there in front of me every day with a beautiful smile, simpatico, so charming, she wasn’t acting like a big star. I knew Thailand very well, so I showed her my Thailand. She’s a great lady.”
