The Shanghai International Film Festival Jackie Chan Action Movie Week officially ended last week. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came in support of the event. Initially, I had planned to attend the after party but in the end I couldn’t make it because I had to rush to the airport and fly to France.

 

This time, I’m in France for the 24 hours of Le Mans Endurance Race, supporting our Chinese racing team! I was very happy to see so many enthusiastic fans here. I also became the Le Mans Cultural Ambassador.

The “Sparkle Roll Group – Jackie Chan DC Racing Team” is the first Chinese racing team in history to compete in the Le Mans Championship. Yesterday, our team won the first round race. When I went on stage to present the award and heard them play the Chinese National Anthem, I honestly felt very proud and was filled with emotions.

Despite the weather, the event was a great success. But unfortunately for us, our racing car #35, which was in third place this morning (France time), had to withdraw from the race because of technical difficulties. Of course I felt disappointed but for my team, it’s just the beginning. I will continue to support my racing team! The most important thing to keep in mind is team spirit!

Special Surprise

sm

Yesterday, I was in Beijing for the Skiptrace Press Conference and was given a very pleasant surprise. During the event, the MC told me to close my eyes. I thought to myself, “It must be a cake, or chocolate, or flowers.” I was so shocked and ecstatic to see my good brother, Yuen Biao, appear in front of my eyes. He flew all the way from Canada just to be here for the event. I’ve known him since we were very young, training at the Peking Opera School together like brothers, and we’ve been close friends for over 50 years already.

Here’s a photo of us re-enacting a scene when we were young.

After the event, we had dinner and talked about all the great times we had together. He even sang “Ming Ming Bai Bai Wo De Xin” (明明白白我的心) to me. We had so much fun. It was a day filled with happy memories.

Not too long ago, the publisher in Japan named the Japanese version of my book as 《Youngster Forever》. I like this a lot. Growing old with age and seeing friends gradually leaving, the feeling of sadness in my heart is unavoidable. But today is my birthday and I received a message from my friend, a quote from Su Shi (a famous Chinese poet also known as Su Dongpo): “Old man lets loose some youthful wildness, left hand leading a yellow dog, right hand holding a grey eagle. Wine helps broaden bravery, my hair a little frosted on the temples, what harm could that be.” I suddenly felt as though I’m at this stage in life, or should I say that I still feel like a reckless youngster. I want to take this opportunity to say a heartfelt thank you to all my friends and fans for all your birthday wishes. May we all be forever young!

前段时间日本出版社把我的书定名为《永远的少年》,我很喜欢。随着年纪增长,经历朋友离开,难免让人心中伤感,但是今天生日之时,我收到朋友发来的一句苏轼的词:老夫聊发少年狂,左牵黄,右擎苍。酒酣胸胆尚开张,鬓微霜,又何妨。我忽然觉得,越是在人生这个阶段,越应该活得像个恣意少年。感谢影迷和朋友们的生日祝福,愿我们都是永远的少年。

When I had the accident in Yugoslavia, my JC Stunt team were at the scene. One of the stuntmen well known for being very manly on the set, was crying in tears when he told me about the operation. That person was Fung Hak On. He’s a member of the second generation JC Stunt team. From being a stuntman to an action choreographer, then progressing on as a director, he’s become a great role model in the hearts of our younger generation. It’s hard to comprehend that I’ve actually come to a point in our lives where we’re continuously saying goodbye. Hak-on, my brother forever, may you rest in peace.

微博:我在南斯拉夫出事的時候,成家班兄弟都在場,有個出了名的硬漢進到病房跟我說開刀的事,邊說邊哇哇大哭,這個人就是馮克安。他是第二代成家班,從武行到武術指導,再到做導演,他是很多後輩心中的楷模。只是不知道從什麼時候起,我們的人生,竟然到了要不斷告別的階段。克安,永遠的兄弟,一路走好。

The start of Spring Festival has been filled with sadness because of a large earthquake that shook Southern Taiwan recently, leaving many injured and loss of lives. People are still being rescued right now. I’ve been paying close attention to the situation and I hope I can help provide relief to the disaster victims by helping rebuild their homes. I’d like to send my special respects to all the rescue workers who’ve been searching endlessly around the clock for survivors. You’re efforts are to be highly commended!

這個新年顯得哀傷,因為台灣南部深夜大地震,造成不少傷亡,目前仍在搶救中。我無時不刻關注著希望能撫慰傷者的心,幫忙重建家園。特別要向不眠不休的救難人員致敬,你們辛苦了!
