Several days ago, I was in Taiwan for the Golden Horse Awards Ceremony, and presented the 52nd Golden Horse Lifetime Achievement Award to an amazing lady I first called “mom” when I entered the entertainment industry, Ms. Lee Li Hua. She was the main actress in my first ever film, Liang Shan Bai Yu Zhu Ying Tai, that I starred in over 50 years ago. Afterwards, I worked with her again in the film Qin Xiang Lian, where I played her son. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been working in the film industry for over 50 years already, and I’m deeply touched that I still have the opportunity to present this award to my “God-Mother”. Words simply cannot describe the emotions that filled me. Ms. Lee Li Hua is the first Asian superstar to obtain international recognition for her work in the Asian film industry, and she will always be a goddess in our hearts.

Recently, I’ve been supporting a group of environmentally friendly artists in Shanghai. These creative teachers and students have come together and started the LOOP movement, using old recycled materials to build new things. Today, they gave me a very special gift ~ a portrait made from over 33,000 recycled buttons! They explained how the process of making this picture was actually quite complicated. If you look closely, there are so many layers, each overlapping each other, giving it a 3D effect. On average, it took them approximately 8 minutes to place one button on the picture, which adds up to over 4400 hours in total! I’m truly very happy to receive this special gift. I’d like to take this opportunity to say a big heartfelt thank you to the amazing LOOP team. Thank you.

I’ve been very busy the past few days, attending events in different places around the world. The other night, I was at the closing ceremony for the Beijing International Film Festival (BJIFF). When I walked on the stage, Luc Besson welcomed me with a big hug, then lifted me up and spun me around a few times.

Soon after the BJIFF ceremony ended, I rushed to the airport and began my long flight from Beijing to Italy. After 11 hours on the plane, we finally arrived in Udine, Italy. Why am I here? To attend the Far East Film Festival (FEFF)! Actually, FEFF have invited me to attend this festival for 17 years already. But each time I’ve had to turn them down because of my busy schedule. This time, I finally made it. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Udine for your continual sincerity over the many years and your perseverance to invite me to your city.


Udine is such a beautiful little city and of course I wanted to go out and explore the streets. But as soon as I walked out of my hotel, I was surrounded by so many enthusiastic fans.



Dragon Blade was the opening film for the FEFF. When they started to play the film, I hid to one side and watched the viewers watching my film. I honestly think that movies are a universal language. Even though Dragon Blade was not in Italian, I noticed how all the viewers in the theatre watched in awe and with full attention.


Towards the end of the movie, I saw quite a few people in the crowd silently wiping tears from their faces. And when the film ended, applause filled the theatre filled that lasted for nearly 5 minutes. Director Daniel Lee Yan Kong was also with me and we both felt so touched by their reaction.

Organizers of FEFF also awarded me the Golden Mulberry Life Achievement Award. I think this award looks very special, don’t you think?

I can’t say too much about my current filming project at the moment. All I can say is….. Kung Fu Panda 3.
