He applauded the place where he grew up Hong Kong for doing right by him “proud to be Chinese,I continue to make movies, jumping through windows, kicking and punching, breaking my bones.”
Thank you, Hollywood, for all of those years teaching me so many things, and also make me a little bit famous. I’m just honored to be here,” he said.
Tom Hanks, Michelle Yeoh and ‘Rush Hour’ co-star Chris Tucker gave Chan the award.
The night was gone to by Hollywood’s world class, including Denzel Washington, Lupita Nyong’o, Nicole Kidman, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Amy Adams and Dev Patel.
The star saw Sylvester Stallone’s Oscar when he had a meeting with him at his home 23 years back.
