Jackie Chan Recalls Time He Almost Knifed a Director

Martial arts legend Jackie Chan revealed recently that he almost attacked a director on set. Chan’s storied career spans two continents and over one hundred films, as reported by Screenrant.

Chan is best known for his high-flying stunts, his comedic angle on fight scenes, and his creative choreography. But Chan is also highly regarded in China and America as an actor and businessman and has become seen as an action genre icon.

In a recent interview on the Chinese talk show Shidian Talk (via Asia One), Chan revealed that his talents were not always so respected.

Chan recounted a time on set when he almost attacked a director after the director made disparaging remarks about Chan’s parents.

“I took a knife and wanted to go and cut the director. I said that he can scold me as much as he wants, but don’t insult my mother.”

Chan was luckily stopped by another martial arts legend he was working with at the time, Sammo Hung. Chan says, “Sammo grabbed hold of me and said: ‘Are you crazy?'”
