Don't try to be like Jackie. There is only one Jackie.... Study computers instead.
I don't want to be an action star, action star's life is so short. I want my life to get longer. I want my career to get longer.
I never wanted to be the next Bruce Lee. I just wanted to be the first Jackie Chan.
I'm tired of fighting. I've always known that I can't be an action star all my life.
In the past when I was in Hollywood, I was like a dog. I felt humiliated. My English was not good. People would even ask me 'Jackie Who?'.
I want to be an Asian Robert De Niro.
Why did I become Jackie Chan? Mostly because I work very hard. When people were sleeping, I was still training.
I make American films for American audiences and Asian films for Asian audiences.
