Wellington, Feb 8 (ANI): Jean-Claude Van Damme is planning to resurrect his acting career in a bid to win back his youngest son.

The hunk's personal life and career hit rock bottom in the 1990s and following a nasty divorce from his fourth wife Darcy LaPier in 1997, he lost access to his youngest son, 13-year-old Nicholas.

The star, who has been dubbed the 'Muscles from Brussels', told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "The only way I can bring my son back is to be successful again as they were saying to him, 'Your father is a loser.'"

The 48-year-old actor is hoping that his resurgence will help him achieve his one main goal, reports the NZPA.

He continued: "For me not to see my kid is a disaster. You cannot do that to somebody. It has got to the point where Nicholas cannot communicate with my other children on Facebook.

"My other son is making a movie and wants Nicholas to be in it because he is thinking about him. So they were communicating about the script. Someone found out and he was cut off."

Jean-Claude said that he's happy to put his self-destructive past behind him to concentrate on family life.

He added: "When I was doing my rock'n roll life I was doing that to the fullest. Thank God I trained for so many years and was in the best shape physically. If not, I would have been six feet under. I promise you.

"I go to the gym. I don't do pot any more. I don't do coke any more. I am very down to earth. I am not Dolce and Gabbana, I am Levi's. I am a people man. The blue collar love me." (ANI)
