After flying 15 hours from Shanghai to USA, I finally arrived in Los Angeles. I knew that as soon as I landed, my busy schedule for USA will begin. I first had a meeting with a director and scriptwriter, and that lasted for three hours. After the meeting, I attended my first event for this trip, “An Academy Salute to Jackie Chan”! The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science especially arranged an academy salute to me.
I saw many fans from all over the world but there were only a limited number of tickets to the event. From what my staff told me, over a thousand tickets were available for sale but it was all sold out very fast and many fans couldn’t buy tickets to get in. So a lot of fans just waited outside the theatre during the entire event. There was one particular fan who asked a friend of a friend to introduce him to my American manager, and my manager told me that the fan flew from New York especially to see me. In fact, the first time the fan met me, he was only 15 years old! And the second time he saw me was when he was 25 years old. This year, this fan had just turned 40.
I have to take this opportunity to thank all of my loyal fans for your continuous support. Because of you, I’ve been able to survive till today! You have been my greatest motivation. So I’d like to say a very heartfelt thank you to all of you who have supported me over the many years! Thank you!
