"I cannot do this, I'm too natural," the 55-year-old actor said as he left.

Jean-Claude Van Damme was not feeling a recent interview with the Australian television show Sunrise.

The actor and martial arts expert used profanity as he lectured the interviewers and camera operators on etiquette and questions he was sick of answering. 

"Sorry guys, I cannot do this anymore," Van Damme says. "The press, they have been asking me the same questions for the last 25 years. You have something interesting to ask me?"

The Time Cop and Universal Solider star said he was over being asked about his training and previous castmates. 

The 55-year-old Van Damme, dubbed the "Muscles from Brussels," was doing the satellite interview to promote a speaking tour in Australia titled "Unplugged and Unscripted."  

Finally having had enough, Van Damme ripped off his microphone, saying “What the f— is going on with Australia? What the f— is going on? I cannot do this, I’m too natural. You can blow this stuff away. What is this?”
