CANNES - The Muscles from Brussels, Jean Claude Van Damme, made girls giggle and strong men wimpy when he arrived at Planet Hollywood in Cannes last week, here to promote his gravity-defying butt in lieu of his sagging popularity.
"I want to show everybody I'm still in great shape," he announced to the crowd of dripping wet fans, who waited for hours outside in the pouring rain to catch a glimpse of the action star.
And the first thing he did to prove his agility was one of his signature kicks, aimed at the French filles in the front row.
"I est tros magnifique, n'est-ce pas?" one swooned.
But theatrics over, the Hard Target star was then assigned more hazardous, useful duties: Serving hamburgers to the hungry media wolfs who surrounded him.
