When asked what it feels like to have passed the milestone of 60 years, JCVD replies: ” I’m not out of breath… For me, being 60 is just a number, even though I’m aware of having aged.

“My source of happiness”
Last March, the actor said about his life in California: ” I love living in Los Angeles, in my house in the hills. I feel good at home when I’m not shooting. I try to take full advantage of mine. When we are together, it is impossible to separate. My children and my wife are my source of happiness. »
