News

After 30-something years in the film industry, Jackie Chan filmed his first screen kiss. And, as he told journalists in London today, it took a British actress to show him the ropes.

'I just had a big kissing scene with Claire Forlani,' the star explained. 'I was shy, she just grabbed me saying "Come On." It was for my new movie The Medallion. The scene's at the end of the movie, and she kissed me and she didn't care. She said "Jackie, your hands touch me! She really made me comfortable."

As the star explains, romantic scenes have been something of a thorny issue for him. 'I always have a girlfriend but no kissing that's a Jackie Chan movie. But things are changing slowly,' he added. 'My fans are growing up with me. I'm an adult, and now slowly we have a love scene in my movies. Now, if they write a love scene, it's OK with me. But writers have got used to not writing a love scene for me. Even in America, the screenwriters see my movies and say, "No love scene". And if there is one, the studio cuts it!"

Jackie Chan just made some additional scenes for HIGHBINDERS at Hong Kong's Mong Kok, a shopping and dinning district. Jackie Chan's scenes include eating some dumping and boiled squid, running in the street (with clothes on), and jumped into a cop car. But the car door was so tight that  after many takes, he still couldn't open it. Of cause, he has made the onsite audiences laugh.

They were allowed to use a Black Hawk Helicoptor to film a scene but Jackie was the only actor allowed on it.
