Kylie tries to get 'Street Fighter' pulled from cinema return

Kylie Minogue is annoyed that her 1994 movie 'Street Fighter' is to be resurrected.

The film - which was loosely based on the popular video game of the same name - is being shown at the Prince Charles Cinema in central London this month, much to the annoyance of Kylie, 46.

An insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Kylie is mortified and her people looked into whether there was any way to get it taken off the bill - there wasn't."

One potential reason for Kylie's embarrassment is that she had a fling with co-star Jean-Claude Van Damme, who revealed in 2012 that they had enjoyed a "sweet kiss".

'The Expendables' actor confessed at the time: "Let's just say it happened, so what? I was in Thailand, we had an affair."

Kylie, on the other hand, has been keen to play down the significance of their brief fling.

The 'Spinning Around' star said previously: "Affair is an overstatement. I guess he was part of life's rich tapestry."

'Street Fighter' failed to impress viewers or critics and unsurprisingly, perhaps, there are still plenty of tickets available for the London screening, which will give the audience an insight into the chemistry between Kylie and Jean-Claude.
