Jean-Claude Be Dammed

01/20/1999 at 12:00 AM EST

After five marriages and confessions about cocaine use, Jean-Claude Van Damme wants to remake his image. "I have to reinvent the brand name, because I'm a brand name," Van Damme told Sunday's New York Daily News. "Arnold (Schwarzenegger) knew how to do that." Van Damme is back in theaters with "Universal Soldier: The Return," a sequel. He says he feels "indestructible" after remarrying Gladys Portugues (wife No. 3 and No. 5) and overcoming the drug problem he went public about last year. That problem, he says, is "Gone. Oh, yeah, gone."
