He is credited with doing a large majority of his own stunts, which is almost unheard of (considering the danger involved). Throughout his career he’s suffered many injuries, broken bones, and has even nearly faced death from stunts gone wrong.

Just this year we saw Leonardo Dicaprio win his first Oscar after being snubbed so often that it had become an ongoing internet joke. But allow us to put this into perspective.

Jackie Chan has been in the industry almost 40 years longer than Leo and has appeared in over 100 more films, also Leo has never been in any of the Rush Hour films.

Here’s to you, Jackie.
