- Studied classical ballet for 5 years.
- Can lift 166kg from his chest while lifting on a bench
- A true carpe diem man:"My biggest orgasm – not in a sexual way – is to walk with my dogs on the beach. In Belgium we have these wide sidewalks. You feel like you’re on the Planet Moon, and I can make them feel like movie stars."
- A liberal viewer: "Most gay people are very tasty people – they like beautiful stuff in their lives. If they like me, it means they have taste. They don’t follow me for my butt shots. They like me for me."
- Modest fellow:"I am the Fred Astaire of karate"
- Always faithful to his own style: "I love playing the villain, but a villain with class."
- Gets bored easily:"I love challenges. If you don't have any and can do whatever you want, then it's probably time to die."
- A flower in disguise:"I'm one of the most sensitive human beings on Earth -- and I know it."
- A deep thinker, always pondering over the ladies' questions: "What is a movie star? It is an illusion. It was everything I ever wanted to be, but it became a kind of shell, non? It was what made me famous and got me women. But it wasn't real."
