In June 1999, in the Belgian town of Knock-Heist the wedding of Jean-Claude Van Damme and Gladys Portugues. It was the first wedding in the life of an actor, but the wedding – the fifth. It would seem – if the wedding fifth, what kind of event? Where the fifth, sixth, and there will be, and the seventh … But tridtsatidevyatiletny Jean-Claude connects this with their marriage fondest hopes. After all, he did not marry on someone, and Gladys, his ex-wife, the mother of his two children. Returning to her, he wanted to regain himself. Start a new life, settle down …
– So what does it mean to you, Gladys? Why start a new life could only be with her?
– Gladys – my only true love. It’s an amazing woman! It is reliable, as the harbor, which can be returned from any of life’s storms. I always knew that she will wait for my return. The second such mental, understanding, loyal and home women are all gone!
They met in 1986 – five years after the arrival of Van Damme in America. Gladys Portugues America was champion in bodybuilding, Jean-Claude – novice actor, starring in several second-rate movies. However, when he saw her, he publicly announced: “I decided to marry this girl!” All then laughed a lot – everything except Gladys … She once believed in him and did everything to help Jean-Claude become a real star. When the light appeared their first-born Christopher, she left the sport and limited their children’s interests and kitchen. Gladys has developed a special diet for a husband on the basis of horse and rabbit stew – the rising star of high-protein food is needed with minimal fat. Soon a daughter, Bianca, and Gladys felt very happy. She could only dream about, to her husband managed to reach his goal – to become famous …
He did it: there was a film “Bloodsport” and the actor spoke the whole of America. And then Gladys began a big problem. Every night her husband went to another secular party, and returned in the morning – very tipsy, smeared lipstick. And then on his way there was Darcy Lapierre – seductive brunette beauty contest winner Hawaii. One night, she called him and invited guests. Darcy met Jean-Claude naked and immediately invited him to make love. Van Damme refused. And, unlike the dozens of fleeting girlfriends, temperamental Darcy seriously “hooked” Jean-Claude.
He divorced Gladys, with whom he lived for six years and married Darcy. Lovers all over the world showed their sizzling passion: they were photographed for erotic magazines in a very risky positions, hugging and kissing even at official receptions … However, what propriety could be discussed if they are both – and Jean-Claude, and Darcy – often there were “stoned”. Solution to be treated for drug addiction actor Darcy did not support – unlike of delayed Gladys …
– When I went to the clinic to get rid of drug addiction, Gladys was almost the only person who believed I was cured. And I am eternally grateful to her for that. And then … This is the only woman in my life, which is able to not think about the money! For Real! She is the only one with whom I have not had the marriage agreement! And even when I left her with two children, she did not ask me for money (I am, of course, and he helped them, but still …).
For the first time Van Damme was married 18 years – even at home in Belgium. His choice was a 25-year-old Maria Rodriguez, a very wealthy person. With the money his wife Jean-Claude bought a sports complex “California Jim”, through which came to him, and the first known. Their marriage lasted exactly as long as Van Damme was in need of financial assistance Rodriguez. As soon as it saps money for future storm Hollywood, he left without too much thought Mary …
Second wife of Jean-Claude became Cynthia Derderian – daughter of the owner of the construction company, where he worked Van Damme. Hollywood did not want to give it up without a fight, just to learn a few words in English, and the money quickly ended. Here, Jean-Claude and went into parquet floor, and then – rare success: love Cynthia provided him with a comfortable existence. By the way, Dad paid Derderian Van Damme English lessons (acting lessons from Jean-Claude proudly refused – they say, would you still Van Gogh suggested learn to mix colors). Received first role in a movie, Van Damme immediately divorced Cynthia – she was no longer necessary to him …
Famous, Van Damme pretty rich. Now he did not need to depend on women – but that does not mean that he was ready to share with them their capital. Even sizzling passion for Darcy Lapierre did not make him forget about the marriage contract – and to discuss the details of his lovers spent two weeks. When the light appeared a little Nicholas Van Damme demanded a paternity test. He really did not want to pay child support in a divorce … After such ugly divorce proceedings certainly do not have to wait long. And the money to pay for the child still had – the doctors admitted unconditionally Van Damme father.
– For all the rest of your marriage was a mistake?
– Error? No I Am Not! More precisely – from the point of view of human morality it was an error. But from the point of view of eternity … Man must evolve to pass their way. And what if, in order to get their way, to learn something, I had to, for example, six wives? Now, if it was possible to become a polygamist … What prevents this? Only morality that people themselves invented and because of which they themselves suffer …
– And then you say that you started a new life that marriage with Gladys – last your wedding …
– I hope that last. But be faithful – it’s so hard …
– Especially if you – a star …
– Or if you travel a lot. During filming, I meet so many new people, and among them, as you know, half – wives bus. And I love it! Although I would not want you to think that I – a sex maniac.
– With a drink you too, so it is necessary to understand not goodbye. Your recent arrest …
After a couple of months after. Van Damme before the altar swore Gladys become a different person, happened to him another ugly story. He was taken to the police station in handcuffs for driving while intoxicated and the creation of an emergency on the road: leaving the parking lot, the actor hit the wall, so much so that a piece fell off the bumper of his car. By the way, parking guards immediately picked up this “relic” and begged Jean-Claude put her autograph and only then called the police … This adventure is not over: Van Damme turned the car hard, and zigzagged gazanul rushed forward, knocking down pillars fencing. From the parking lot, he had not managed to escape – arrived, police said.
– It seems to me that the uproar around this story does not match my misdemeanor. Firstly, I do not have much and drank – 4-5 glasses of red wine. Then, I’m not on the road to something crashed, and the parking lot, so special danger to anyone was not. But, finding me at the wheel, police immediately realized that here you can make a big scandal. One of them and said, “Oh! Yes, today we got a big fish!”
We are all human, and all occasionally get into trouble, you just have to treat this calmer. And do not specifically inflate scandals Actors. After all, there are children who do not really happy in their families, and they do not want something to imitate their fathers. And when they watch my films, I am for them – a role model, an ideal … I think that the state should think more about how not to injure these children. Incidentally, when the famous actor 30s John Wayne landed in jail, newspapers write about it did not – and rightly so!
– So what does that mean for you to “start a new life?
– Well, at least that I started to play sports again – every day for 3-4 hours a day. I remember once, at eleven years old, I first looked at my reflection in the mirror – frail bespectacled, skin and bones. And then I was fond of comics – you know, those superheroes with beautiful bodies, they came out victorious from any troubles … In short, I decided to train. I even jumped from roof to roof – it is dangerous, of course, but in the end it all went in my favor. Now I again experienced something like that … My depression vanished!
– Are you depressed loss of physical form?
– It’s not that. I just got to handle. Drink, drugs, women (after her divorce from Darcy in the arms of Van Damme visited actress Natasha Henstridzh, the star of “Playboy” Izabell Torella and even the Monaco Princess Stephanie) … I’m totally confused in all this. Eventually, I even stopped train, and by that I jeopardized not only my body (shape, earned over many years of training, so fast you will not lose), but self-esteem. I began to feel that it is not worthy of its own success. After all, there are so many actors and they are like at the start, for years waiting for the command “GO!” I was lucky, and I’ve been running on its track, though, maybe I did not better than them.
– So what goal you set for yourself now? Where to run?
– I want to change the role. I’m tired of listening to the speech of Film idiotic that I – actor action genre. I, of course, really nice to know how to work the feet, but then I have a head on your shoulders! I may not be Einstein, but I thought a lot about life … By the way, now I’m going to star in a major film – about cloning.
– If you said, you can one day of his life to spend as you wish – without any moral constraints …
– I would take a boat and went to a desert island. Would take a 5-6 with their children …
– Yes, I know that I only have three children. But let them take some of their friends. And I’d like to see on this desert island were all my ex-wife and their new husbands, too – we have made a big family dinner … That’s just I would have to use all my diplomatic skills to keep the peace and tranquility in this company. The fact that some of my wife is now married to a very rich guy, and the rich guys love to share power …
– So how you ever managed to get everyone together?
– I give up. No, it was not possible. Thank God, at least I can gather the children. At Millennium, I did so. We just spent a few days together: walking, talking. My oldest son – he was 12 years old – very creative little man, he draws well. And my daughter – her nine – the strongest spirit of all of us. The younger son is too young (he is four years) to say about it something specific.
– Where is your home?
– In Los Angeles. Two years ago, I would say that in Europe … I just was very difficult to get used to living here. I’m faster and easier to become famous than he felt an American!
– Why do you go to get married in Belgium?
– Well, at least because we Gladys it was easier to go to Belgium himself than to carry out my grandmother – she was too old for such trips. Then … I wanted to somehow be cleansed, to join their roots, whether that … Still, Belgium – my homeland, and it’s a lot.
