Who knew a panned action movie of the early 1990s spawned a “beautiful” off-screen affair between two of its stars? Jean-Claude Van Damme recently gave an interview to The Guardian in which he is asked about an affair with Aussie songstress Kylie Minogue during the filming of “Street Fighter” nearly 20 years ago.
At first Van Damme plays coy, but when reminded he has mentioned the affair himself before in interviews, he tells the paper, “Yes. OK. Yes, yes, yes. It
happened. I was in Thailand, we had an affair. Sweet kiss, beautiful
lovemaking,” says Van Damme.
“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,” he continues. “I knew
Thailand very well, so I showed her my Thailand. She’s a great lady.”
Sounds lovely. Of course, Van Damme was married to wife Darcy LaPier at the time the film was shot. So there’s that.
