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.

首先,謝謝所有朋友的關心。兒子房祖名出了這樣的事,我感到非常憤怒,也非常震驚!作為公眾人物,我很羞愧,作為父親,我很心痛,尤其是他的母親,更是心碎。希望青少年以祖名的教訓為戒,遠離毒品的侵害。在此,也對祖名說:做錯了事,要承擔後果。身為你的父親,我願意與你共同面對未來之路。最後,我教子無方,也要負起責任,並替祖名一起向社會公眾,深深鞠躬道歉。 謝謝大家!


First of all, I’d like to thank everyone for your care and concerns. The recent news about my son, Jaycee, is very shocking and the impact it has caused on society is heartbreaking. When I first heard the news, I was absolutely enraged. As a public figure, I feel very ashamed; as his dad, I’m very sad and disappointed. But the person who feels heartbroken the most is his mom. I hope our younger generation will learn from Jaycee’s mistake and stay far away from drug abuse. I would like to take this opportunity and say to Jaycee: you’ve done something wrong and you have to be responsible for the consequences. I’m your dad and I’ll always be with you. We will face the road ahead of us together. I should also take some of this responsibility because as his dad, I didn’t teach him well. Therefore, on behalf of Jaycee and myself, I extend our deepest apologies to everyone for the negative impact this has caused on society. Thank you.
