Hello all my friends and fans,

Yesterday in my press conference in Cannes for Chinese 12 Zodiac I 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 to let everyone 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.

I will continue to do international action movies.

And I will keep improving my English 🙂

I love all of you!

Jackie

This can also be interpreted as using stunt doubles for dangerous scenes or starring in roles that require less dramatic action sequences and more dialogue.
We can expect to continue seeing our childhood’s ultimate martial artist/entertainer in many more roles to come.

Take it easy Jackie, you deserve it.
