Jean-Claude Van Damme: "Most gay people are very tasty"

Jean-Claude Van Damme:

Deep down we always knew Jean-Claude Van Damme was more than just the Muscles from Brussels — take these fresh, funny and frank anecdotes from an interview with online magazine Sabotage Times for example.

On being a gay icon: "Most gay people are very tasty people — they like beautiful stuff in their lives. If they like me, it means they have taste. They don't follow me for my butt shots. They like me for me."

On nudity: "I have no problem showing my naked body from the back, but from the front is a very different matter. I wouldn't want to lose all my fans."

On sensitivity: I'm one of the most sensitive human beings on Earth — and I know it.

On acting: "In an action film, you act in the action. If it's a dramatic film, you act in the drama."

On joining The Expendables 2: "I'm very happy to be in the picture. I had a lot of talks with Sly and the director Simon West and I decided that the best thing for me would be to appear in the film."

He added that he wants to be seen as "a real actor, not a piece of meat", competing with Robert De Niro and Jack Nicholson. We love you, JCVD.
