  2. I never watched JC growing up but i bumped into him in a gym in Santa Monica (California) back in 1996 & i gotta say he was the the most lovable and personable actor i ever met (and ive been around & met a lot). Since then i now own all his films (on bluray) and passed my love of JC onto my children! Now we can recite every line of every movie together.
    With all he’s been through in life & having it all out in the open being a celebrity, i give the guy credit & thanks for being a true champ. I could go on all day….. All in all JCVD is a hero and a great role model for my growing teens. Keep up the good work my friend…..
