The most memorable thing about The Expendables 2 will likely be Jean-Claude Van Damme discussing a torrid affair he had with Australian singer and blond bombshell Kylie Minogue. The 51-year-old action star was questioned about the odd romance that occurred almost two decades ago while the two were filming the box office bomb Street Fighter. At first, he clammed up when asked by a reporter for The Guardian saying: "I tell you what, you should ask her. She'll have a better memory. I'm 51 years old, do you know how much I was punched in the face on The Expendables? No, no. No. And let's just say it happened, so what? Who wants to know?" Ironically, the reporter points out that it was the Belgian martial arts expert who spilled the beans a few years back. Van Damme quickly got over his new tight-lipped act in a matter of moments telling the reporter, "Yes. OK. Yes, yes, yes. It happened. I was in Thailand, we had an affair. Sweet kiss, beautiful lovemaking. 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."
