Popular Hong-Kong born actor Jackie Chan has come out to deny reports which made the rounds last week that he was retiring from action movies.
Jackie said he was surprised at the wrong perception gotten from his announcement when all he had said was that he would be limiting the amount of risky stunts he does in his movies.
“In my press conference in Cannes for Chinese 12 Zodiac, I had said that this movie was my last big action movie.”
“Today I was shocked when I woke up to read all the news coverage that I was retiring from doing action movies.”
“I just want everyone to know that I am not retiring from doing action movies. What I meant to say is that I need to do less of the life risking stunts on my movies. After all these years of doing so many stunts and breaking so many bones, I need to take better care of my body so I can keep working.”
