Legendary action star Jackie Chan has decided to step away from action films.
Chan admits he is “really, really tired,” and planning to step away from the genre.
While promoting his new action flick, ‘Chinese Zodiac,’ which also happens to be his 100th movies, Chan told reporters at Cannes;
“This will be my last action movie,” the actor, 58, said. “I will ask my body how long I can go . . . I tell you, I am not young any more.”
Chan is not quitting movies all together though, adding that he wants to be known as an actor, not just an action star. He explains,
“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.”
