No more dangerous stunts for ageing Chan
LOS ANGELES: Jackie Chan has confessed he would not continue with his signature death-defying stunts in future films. The 55-year-old Hong Kong actor, known for his martial arts, said he was getting too old for the kung fu kicks and suffered constant pain.
“A lot. My shoulder, my arms...” He points at his groin, “Here. All the joints really hurt... you don’t know! My back!” the Herald Sun reported. Chan further revealed falling the wrong way during the making of Police Story was his most painful stunt ever.
He recalled, “I thought I’m dying, I thought my backbone had gone through my heart. There
was all this blood coming out. That hurt but I wasn’t dying.”
