Jackie Chan Once Complained About An Actress’ “Disgusting” On Set Behaviour, But He Wouldn’t Name Her ‘Cos He “Can’t Afford To Offend” Her

Netizens think he’s talking about Angelababy or Jing Tian.

Not too long ago, martial arts legend Jackie Chan, 67, gave an interview in which he lamented about how some young actors are not dedicated to their jobs and are unable to take hardship.

Recently, another one of his earlier rants resurfaced online, and this time, he was referring to an actress whose unprofessional behaviour left him completely “disgusted”.

    Yikes. Who could he have been talking about?

    According to Jackie, this actress would basically behave like some big shot and arrive on set “surrounded by over 8,000 people, with make-up on”.

    “After shooting just two scenes, everyone would tell her that she worked hard. What hard work? That wasn’t hard work at all!” Jackie complained.

    He added that after they had finished filming a fight sequence, the actress would pretend to catch her breath while going on about how exhausted she is, and this made Jackie furious.

    “Some action scenes have stunt doubles,” he said. “And you’re saying you’re tired even though you didn’t do anything?”

    However, as much as Jackie couldn’t tolerate her antics, he refrained from disclosing her identity as the actress is supposedly very popular and has a strong online following.

    In fact, he even admitted that he would compliment the actress whenever they meet ‘cos he “can’t afford to offend” her.

    Wow, that's surprising, given how respected and influential Jackie is in showbiz, you’d think it would would be the actress who feared him.

    Before long, netizens began speculating on who this super powerful — so powerful that even the Jackie Chan has to tiptoe around her — woman might be.

    Many folks seem to have their money on Chinese actresses Angelababy, 32, and Jing Tian, 33, both of whom are often criticised for their, um, controversial acting skills, although we have to wonder if Jackie is really that terrified of their devotees.
