Kung fu star Jet Li shocks fans with youthful looks
What a difference a year makes. Jet Li is looking “really good” these days in a photo one fan recently shared of himself with the martial arts star.  The 56-year-old Chinese star of The Expendables 3 and Lethal Weapon 4 has been battling hyperthyroidism for years. More than a year ago he made headlines around the world when he appeared in a photo that showed him looking extremely frail.  Last year, the Beijing-born actor said he had been diagnosed with an overactive thyroid and has been taking medication to help him keep his illness in check. Hyperthyroidism causes changes in a person’s metabolism and heart rate. However, Li appears to have done a 180-degree turn and looks rejuvenated to suc
NBA star James Harden gets pulled over by traffic cops in China
NBA superstar James Harden was stopped by traffic police in Shanghai on Saturday, and people in China had a good laugh at his predicament. In photos and videos that have gone viral, the Houston Rockets shooting guard was seen riding a battery-powered scooter with his friends and then stopped by a policeman, who pulled him over for breaking local road regulations.  Harden, who was on a promotional tour in China for Adidas, appeared surprised that he was being pulled over. It's not known whether he was given a traffic citation or whether police in Shanghai had any idea who he was. On Saturday night, he apologized on China’s Weibo social networking site for "violating traffic rules" and promis
Bruce Lee is officially history's greatest Lee
Kung fu star Bruce Lee is the greatest Lee of all.  That’s at least according to an online poll, inspired by US schools wanting to ditch their association with American Civil War General Robert E. Lee. Lee, a white supremacist who fought for the Confederate States of America that wanted to retain slavery, has been memorialized in the names of schools across the southern US. That has made some students and staff alike uncomfortable. However, cash-strapped school districts would have to pay out huge amounts of money –  some say more than $1 million – to replace signs, uniforms and other paraphernalia. That’s where Bruce comes in. Rather than wholly rename schools, some districts are choosing
Donnie Yen’s still kicking ass at 55
Martial arts superstar Donnie Yen may be turning 56 in July, but he’s still kicking ass. He’ll be on the big screen again very soon, with the fourth Ip Man film set to premiere in parts of Asia on July 25. In the popular action movies, Yen plays the eponymous master of Wing Chun, the Chinese martial art, who was renowned in real life for teaching Bruce Lee.         View this post on Instagram                   I’ve created and directed many action scenes, always finding new inspiration and try to come up with breakthrough action each time and always showcasing the actor’s best ability. Went over a few things with some of my men today, do u know who I’m directing tomorrow? #d
This rare Bruce Lee interview has got fans excited
Rare color footage of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, before he became world famous, has emerged on YouTube. Filmed around 1966 on 16mm colour film, Lee was interviewed as he was breaking out as a star playing Kato in the television series The Green Hornet. The 73-second clip is taken from an archive released by the Center for Sacramento History, which has released a series of celebrity interviews from over the years. Lee joins stars such as Leonard Nimoy from Star Trek, singer and actress Barbra Streisand, Batman’s Adam West and Sylvester Stallone (before he became Rocky) in interviews by celebrity reporter Harry Martin from Sacramento station KCRA-TV. The video shows some banter between Le
Martial arts legend Jet Li is battling illness
Fans of martial arts superstar Jet Li are praying for his health after shocking recent photos revealed the extent of his hyperthyroidism and spinal problems. The Hollywood icon, who starred in Lethal Weapon 4, Romeo Must Die and more recently The Expendables 2, revealed five years ago he has been suffering from hyperthyroidism. A recent photo of him visiting a temple in Tibet has been widely circulated with many people taken aback by Li’s frail appearance. The photo also showed he had to be assisted while he walked. Last year, the 55-year-old Beijing-born actor spoke about his illness after a long absence from the public eye at One Foundation’s charity dinner in the Chinese capital. The act
