Jean-Claude Van Damme: 'I can save the world'

BANG Showbiz

JEAN-Claude Van Damme claims he can save the world.

The 54-year-old actor claims the human race faces extinction in the next 50 or 60 years but says he can stop it by lobbying the world's leaders, who he knows personally, to save the animals.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 live Breakfast, he said: "The human being is a wonderful species and they have a way of fixing everything and hopefully they are going to help themselves, but if they don't then it [the world] is over in 50 or 60 years.

"I've got a way, not to change everybody, but to make a huge difference. It's mathematically correct. By creating this ecology circle, where the leaders of the world are saving animals. If we see our world leaders are doing that, by trying to save the animals, by trying to put things on a good balance and automatically people are going to try to rearrange for a better position on earth. Earth will have a longer process of life, with people in it."

When interviewer Colin Paterson admitted he was unsure of how Jean-Claude would get the world leaders together, the action star said "nature".

He added: "Every leader they have a heart, and they have a wife, they have children, they understand the word love or deception. Everybody on earth has something called a good side on them.

"With all the people I know from a valet parking friend of mine to Mr Putin, or Mr Obama and all those big names, I know them well ... Mr Trump too, I think we can do something because this is the last chance. 2015 we can fix the world!"
