HONG KONG – In the 2006 movie Rob-B-Hood, Jackie Chan warms up the heart as they play a character that protects the child from harm.
However, in the remarks of the upcoming reminder of Never Grow Up, his fans will probably be amazed to find out that the action star once stopped another child – his own child, Jaycee – over the room during arguments with his wife, Lin Feng-jiaoom.
Luckily, Jaycee landed on the couch and was not hurt.
This dark side of Chana, unlike the reliable, solid, upright characters on the screen, also involved poor women's processing in their younger days.
According to statements published in the Daily Mail, he visited prostitutes and drove even when he was drunk. Once, Porsche crashed in the morning and Mercedes Benz later at night.
When Chan, now 64, started linking to Lina, feared to be after money, and later broke her heart when she had a relationship with actress and former Miss Azia Elaine Ng.
The book blames his behavior on his uncertainties and immaturity. Since he did not focus on studies, his father sent him to school where he was forced to pick up martial arts, among other activities.
Even when Chan got a job as a thief, money was made up for gambling and prostitutes. She mentions a woman, especially she knew only as number 9, and she slept regularly.
He had a wild life in his work as a thief. "We all knew that if something went wrong, we would not live so that the sun could rise next day. We had a short-lived mentality, which means irresponsible spending our money."
He was still inferior even when his career took off in 1978 with films such as Snake In The Eagle's Shadow and Drummaker.
There was a year when he raised large accounts "paying for the rest of the meal".
"I also gave extravagant gifts: watches, cars, custom made leather jackets, expensive wine cases."
She did not feel comfortable with the more polished and elegant Teresa Teng, deliberately drank soup straight from the pelvis in her presence, instead of using the spoon.
"But it was not her fault, she did nothing bad and I was terribly unjust to her," Chan remembers the famous Taiwan songwriter who died in 1995.
Lin married only when she was pregnant in 1981. But he "worked through the whole pregnancy" and did not visit her in California, where she was preparing for birth.
Even worse, he writes, believing his friends when they told him that Lin might have been deliberately pregnant and "kept thinking about ways to keep her money from her."
Chan, who earned $ 50 million ($ 68.5 million) last year, according to Forbes, is also in the US with hits like Rumble In The Bronx (1995) and Franchise Rush Houra.
Chan, who in 2016 has been given a livelihood, writes that he was surprised to find that other action hero Sylvester Stallone had recordings of all his films.
But although he believes that most people will think he has done well, he admits that his opinion does not share his family.
"I was not a good father or a good husband, but I did my duty to my son and to his mother."
The book does not mention Etta Ng, his beloved child with Elaine Ng during his affair in 1999.
But he mentions the affair in the book, revealing how he told Lina and Jaycee: "I made an unforgivable mistake and I do not know how to explain it, so I will not."
She cried, and Jaycee stared at him, but forgave him.
