Hi guys and welcome back to Amolipi channel. Today’s video is about one of the most popular film personalities in the world, who helped to bring Kung Fu movies into the mainstream of American cinemas, Asian martial arts legend, Jackie Chan. Now come with me and find out what’s interesting in his lifestyle.
Jackie Chan’s real name is Chan Kong-sang, born in Hong Kong on April 7, 1954 and is a martial artist, actor, stuntman, director, screenwriter, producer and a successful singer. Chan is the most widely recognized actor in the world, gaining a widespread following in both the Eastern and Western hemispheres, and has received stars on the Hong Kong Avenue of Stars and the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Chan’s father, named Charles Chan, was born in 1914 and died at the age of 93 in 2008. He was a personal guard, according to Chan. His mother’s name is Lee-Lee Chan, she was born in 1916 and died in February, 2002.
Chan married Fung Chalin, a Taiwanese actress, in 1982. Their son, singer and actor, J.C Chan, was born that same year. Chan has an illegitimate daughter, named Etta Ang Choklam, born in 1999, the result of his affair with Miss Asia 1990, Ellen Wu. This turned into a scandal within the media and one of the biggest scandals of Chan in Korea.
At the age of 17, Chan served as a stuntman until 1976. Film producer, Willie Chan, offered him a role in his film Low Way, and Chan then began to establish himself as a comedy Kung Fu actor. In the early 90s, Chan was still unknown to Hollywood but that changed with the 1995’s Rumble In The Bronze and 1998’s Rush Hour which became a blockbuster, both of them scoring massive success and earning Chan a great reputation with a legacy that became unquestionable.
Jackie is easily immortal in the eyes of his fans and we have his movies to thank for entertaining us so splendidly. He is the first Chinese actor in history to receive an honorary Oscar for five decades in the industry, with more than 200 films under his belt.
Of his enormous filmography, the following 10 entertained fans the most by far:
1. Drunken Master (1978)
2. Who Am I (1998)
3. Rush Hour film series (1998-2007)
4. The Tuxedo (2002)
5. The Medallion (2003)
6. Shanghai Knights (2003)
7. Robbie Hood (2006)
8. The Forbidden Kingdom (2008)
9. CZ12 (2012)
10. The Foreigner (2017)
1. He speaks seven languages: Cantonese, Mandarin, English, German, Korean, Japanese, and Thai. He is also proficient in the American Sign Language.
2. In the act of performing his own stunts, he has broken his nose three times, his ankle once, most of the fingers in his hand, both his cheekbones, and his skull.
3. There are only two things that scare Jackie Chan: needles and public speaking.
4. Jackie Chan’s son will get none of his fortune. According to him, if his son is capable he can get his own money and if he’s not then he will be just wasting Chan’s money.
Jackie Chan’s net worth is estimated at 400 million dollars. Besides Jackie’s houses in Beijing, he also had real estate in California, Miami, Australia, Phuket Island, and Hong Kong. The French-inspired villa in Beverly Hills, California, worth 3 million, is also one of his houses. The lavish house features 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 3 fireplaces, a pool and many amenities.
Jackie has always been proud of his real-life car collection, which is as luxurious as in the movies. Here are some notable cars in this huge collection. Jackie Chan and Mitsubishi have a special kind of relationship. So much so, that Mitsubishi even named a car after him and made only 50 Jackie Chan Special Edition Evos, with a starting price of a whopping $77, 000.
The Lamborghini Murcielago is one of the best Lamborghinis ever to be created and probably the most priced car in Jackie’s collection; it’s worth a costly 354 thousand dollar.
Jackie Chan’s favorite car from his collection is said to be Subaru Impreza WRX STI. It might not be the most glamorous or fastest car on the block but it sure is reliable and priced at a reasonable $32,000.
He is the proud owner of an Embraer Legacy 650. The aircraft costs a whopping 30 million dollar and is painted in the beautiful and symbolic colors of red and yellow.
He is also the first Chinese to own an Embraer Legacy 500; an aircraft that set him back $20 million. Rumor has it that the legacy 500 is for short trips and the legacy 650 is for longer distances.
Jackie has collaborated with Chinese shipyard Jinlong to launch a spectacular 150 foot flagship superyacht constructed over two years at Jinlong’s hulu yacht industry park facility. The superyacht sports a monochromatic color scheme with an all-white body and black hole. Let’s take a look.
Jackie Chan’s fortune makes sense because of his great contribution to the film industry and to the whole world’s culture. I myself grew up with his movies and I just want to say: Thank you Jackie! You’re such a great human being!
