Ryan Lochte At The Expendables 2 Premiere

ryan lochte went to expendables 2 premiere

Looks like four years of the toughest training ever gets you more than a whole bunch of Olympic medals!

Ryan Lochte went to the premiere of The Expendables 2!

The lucky Olympian got to walk the red (in this case black) carpet with Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean-Claude Van Damme and more!

So cool that he got to hang out with so many HUGE action stars!

We bet many of them were really excited to meet the gold medalist too.

Must've been so much fun but Lochte earned it, he made his whole country proud!

Way to go, Ryan!

Jean-Claude Van Damme SUED For Bashing Fitness Product

And he was supposed to be promoting it! Yikes!

Jean-Claude Van Damme is being sued by the makers of the "Total Flex", a piece of home gym equipment which the actor was paid to endorse, after bashing it on his reality show, Behind Closed Doors.

Apparently, Van Damme showed up to film an infomercial with the company, but had no idea how to use the fitness machine.

Producers of the infomercial claim he grew frustrated that he couldn't figure out how to use it (although his wife figured it out right away…LOLz!) and REFUSED to continue filming the commercial!

His potentially costly mistake was then turning to his own reality television show's cameras and insisting he would never endorse a product he thinks is no good.

The action icon disappeared from the set, then called the producers after to officially resign from the project.

According to court documents filed on Monday in El Lay, the makers of the Total Flex are suing Van Damme for at least $25,000 for their financial losses during the fiasco!

Sounds like Jean-Claude wasn't very professional and may be gearing up to fork over some cash! If he didn't like the product, he shouldn't have agreed to endorse it!

Jean-Claude Van Damme Has Hearing Problems

Jean-Claude Van Damme Has Hearing Problems

Thank goodness Jean-Claude Van Damme’s a Jedi with super powers, otherwise he might have trouble with fights these days!

He’s been diagnosed with high-frequency hearing loss, and his doctor has ordered him to wear protective ear wear on film sets.

All of the loud gun shots and explosions from action movies over the years have finally gotten to him.

Van Damme says that while his regular hearing is going — he can hear strange sounds now:

"I shot lots of guns in movies but I'm able to hear unusual sounds, like if you slide fax paper in the living room I can hear it, like a German Shepherd."

Unfortunately, high-frequency hearing loss affects your ability to understand conversaitons.

He was told by his doctor:

"There is a difference in hearing in high frequencies between both sides (of his ears), which means if many people are talking together in a group, it's quite difficult for you to understand someone speaking. You hear, but you can't understand. That's the problem when there's a high-frequency hearing loss. What you can do is not make it worse, so use ear protection when you go out (and shoot) movies."

We hope he’s more careful with his hearing now!
