He may have looked blissfully happy as he posed with his wife at The Expendables 2 London film premiere, but there may be something that Gladys Portugues doesn't know about Jean-Claude Van Damme.
The 51-year-old actor has recently admitted that he had an affair with pop star Kylie Minogue back in 1994.
During an interview with The Guardian, in which the actor promoted his latest movie, he decided to make the unexpected revelation.
Jean-Claude Van Damme admitted in a recent interview that he had an affair with Kylie Minogue when they filmed Street Fighter in the Nineties
'I tell you what, you should ask her. She'll have a better memory,' he told the newspaper when the subject came up. '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
'OK. Yes, yes, yes. It happened. I was in Thailand, we had an affair.'
It seems the odd pairing came about when Jean-Claude and Kylie were filming Street Fighter, and according to him, it was unavoidable.
'Sweet kiss, beautiful lovemaking,' he added. '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.
Long-term love: The actor divorced Gladys Portugues in 1992 but remarried her in 1999
'I knew Thailand very well, so I showed her my Thailand. She's a great lady.'
The action film was released in 1994, but it's unclear when exactly it was shot.
Jean-Claude and Gladys weren't actually together around this time as they got divorced in 1992 after five years of marriage and went on to remarry in 1999.
However, during their separation, he did marry Darcy LaPier in 1994.
