Jackie Chan’s new book “Growing Old Before Growing Up” 《還沒長大就老了》, written by Zhu Mo, was released on his birthday on April 7, 2015, during a press conference held in Beijing.

The book reveals a side of Jackie Chan previously not known to the public, including how he used to drink and drive regularly after he shot to fame in his early 20s and became very wealthy; how he would often crash luxury cars after drinking and had treated media badly during those days.

Jackie’s new book is currently only available in Simplified Chinese.
