Jean-Claude Van Damme has confirmed longstanding rumors he enjoyed a fling with pop superstar Kylie Minogue while filming 1994 flop Street Fighter.

The star has previously hinted at enjoying a brief romance with the Spinning Around hit-maker while they worked together on the big screen adaptation of the popular video game.

In an interview with Britain's Guardian newspaper, he tried to play coy after being quizzed about the rumors, saying, "Oh... who said that to you? I tell you what, you should ask her. She'll have a better memory. I'm 51 years old, do you know how much I was punched in the face on The Expendables 2? No, no. No. And let's just say it happened, so what? Who wants to know?"

However, Van Damme later admitted the pair had a short-lived affair while shooting the movie in Thailand.

He revealed, "Sometimes you let go of stuff... I don't know, maybe. Yes. OK. Yes, yes, yes. It happened. I was in Thailand, we had an affair. Sweet kiss, beautiful love-making.

"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. I knew Thailand very well, so I showed her my Thailand. She's a great lady."
