Jackie Chan is quitting action movies??
That'd be like Russell Brand quitting comedies!
After promoting his 100th movie, Chinese Zodiac, Jackie told reporters:
"This will be my last action movie. I tell you, I am not young any more … I am really, really tired."
Awww! That's so sad!
"I don't just want to be an action star … I want to be a true actor. I want to be an Asian Robert De Niro. I want to get rid of my image. So, for the last ten years I've done other films like 'The Karate Kid' where I'd rather play an old man. I want the audience to know I'm not just about fighting or comedy, also I can act."
We guess he's gotten tired of kicking his own butt (as well as the butts of millions of henchmen) and he wants to show people his real talent.
We'll be sad to see you leave the business of butt kicking but we support you in following your happiness!
