Jean-Claude Van Damme: Paige VanZant's Awesome ... Glad She's In 'Kickboxer'


Van Damme approves VanZant ... at least when it comes to starring in the new 'Kickboxer' movie. 

In case you haven't heard, Paige VanZant has already signed on to star in "Kickboxer Retaliation" -- the 3rd installment of the franchise JCVD made famous back in the day. 

In fact, producers say they wrote Paige's role especially for her after they saw the UFC superstar on "Dancing with the Stars."

So, when we saw Jean-Claude leaving his L.A. gym -- wearing his own "JCVD" hat -- he told us how excited he was for Paige to join the team.
