  • Let's talk.

  • [ Shouts from Audience ]

  • I love you too.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • Thank you.

  • Thank you.

  • >> Thank you, Jackie.

  • >> Thank you.

  • >> Just seeing the audience full of people in the theatre,

  • obviously, this kind of adoration and respect is all

  • around the world for you, but I think Australia will have

  • to say we've got a lead on the rest of the world,

  • because they claim you as their own.

  • So welcome back to Australia.

  • >> Thank you.

  • [ Applause and Cheers ]

  • And I don't know, tonight, I don't know what kind

  • of language you wish to speak.

  • Cantonese or Mandarin or English.

  • I know there's --

  • half-half-half, so [foreign language spoken] everybody.

  • [foreign language spoken]

  • [ Applause ]

  • In Australia, are most Chinese, Cantonese, or Mandarin?

  • [ Audience Responds ]

  • See, Canton and Mandarin!

  • [inaudible] Mandrin, okay.

  • I speak -- yeah.

  • >> I think --

  • >> A mix.

  • >> I think for the benefit of people

  • who are actually speak only Chinese, let's start --

  • I'm sorry, only English.

  • >> English.

  • >> Let's start it with English.

  • >> Okay.

  • >> All right.

  • Now it's very impressive with your three dreams.

  • Obviously, it's very close to your heart, but we will leave

  • that a little bit later on.

  • I would like to start by saying that I have to admit,

  • I'm also a Jackie Chan fan.

  • [ Applause and Cheers ]

  • I'm a few years younger than you, but not that much younger.

  • So we probably went through the similar hard-training regime.

  • You went through picking opera kind of training, the drama,

  • and went through the martial arts trainings, and I,

  • on the other hand, did ballet,

  • but I have to admit Kung Fu was my secret dream.

  • As part of the seven-year training

  • at the Beijing Dance Academy from 11 to 18,

  • we didn't just train ballet,

  • but we also trained Chinese folk dance

  • but also martial arts for five years.

  • So I grew up, like all Chinese, is sort of dreamt

  • to become a kung fu master.

  • So that's my secret dream, but I did get that far.

  • The five years of training as a martial arts

  • at the Beijing Dance Academy as close as I actually got

  • to Kung Fu, and it was very funny.

  • It was, a few days ago, I was telling the 24-year-old son,

  • Tom, and because when he was younger, we'd been watching some

  • of your old films, and he loved you, as well, and I told him

  • that I was going to come here to interview you,

  • and he confessed for the first time.

  • He said, "Dad, I have confessed something to you."

  • And he said, "When I grew up,

  • and when show me the Jackie Chan films," he said,

  • "I had this secret feeling

  • that you may not be the famous ballet dancer,

  • but you could be Jackie Chan."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • So I think you are more popular in my household than myself,

  • but let's go to the business side of things.

  • You have been making films all around the world,

  • but also in Australia, and can you share

  • with us this time back, is it different

  • to your previous times?

  • I think you made films in Melbourne, Brisbane,

  • but you know, in Sydney, what you love most about coming back

  • to Australia, but what do you experience differently

  • to other times?

  • >> There's a big difference.

  • When I come to Australia when I was 17, that's, I think,

  • the whole country about 30 million people.

  • That's all.

  • I was in Canberra, and there is very few people.

  • You know? And the country is so big and it's

  • so [inaudible] away from Hong Kong.

  • You know, Hong Kong, it's just that tiny, small,

  • and there's 7 million people.

  • Wherever you go there are people, people, people.

  • In Canberra, 5 o'clock, I walk on the street.

  • Nobody. Really.

  • And I just remember a lot of memories, really,

  • that we don't have an opera house yet at that time,

  • and suppose I'm going back to Australia for Camberra

  • for visiting my parents and as a holiday,

  • somehow I cannot stay anymore, I tried the training,

  • but at that time, you know, 28, bell jeans, and tight,

  • tight shirt with then jogging on the street,

  • because I didn't bring any training suit.

  • So I was jogging, jogging, and then.

  • Then the car stopped.

  • "Are you okay?"

  • And at that time, my English was not that good.

  • I just, "Eh, eh."

  • They really very nice people.

  • You want a ride?

  • "Eh. Exercise."

  • "Oh, okay."

  • They go away, then a car.

  • They keep on stop.

  • They thought I'm missing the road, you know?

  • That somehow, that's how I feel in Canberra.

  • When I come to Sydney, it's not like today.

  • So many big buildings.

  • Then all those years, I just feel my parents get very --

  • could take care of it for the whole Australia.

  • So they emigrate here.

  • They buy a house here.

  • Now even they after they pass away, they buried in Canberra

  • after the two weeks later, I have to go back to [inaudible].

  • [ Inaudible Speech ]

  • Yeah, [inaudible].

  • So and that time, I feel like Australia is a part of my home.

  • So whenever I have a chance,

  • then the first movie I make is Mr. Nice Guy.

  • [ Cheers ]

  • It's Mr. Nice Guy.

  • Yeah, I think Mr. Nice Guy then we worked there

  • for like four months.

  • Then after I go back, I get a very good experience.

  • Then I just tell my whole crew, the next movie is first try,

  • then coming back again I cannot remember Brisbane and Melbourne.

  • I always mixed up.

  • Always, boom, boom, boom.

  • Brisbane, Melbourne, I mixed up.

  • Then, a big action sequence, and we do a lot

  • of big action snow mountain.

  • Where's the snow mountain Brisbane or Melbourne?

  • >> Melbourne.

  • >> Melbourne, yeah, there's snow mountain.

  • Yeah. And the snow mountain.

  • I'll tell you very good -- there was a very funny joke.

  • One of my friends, I had to go back to Canberra

  • to see my friend, and my friend said, "I want to come with you,

  • but I have to stop -- the snow mountain Brisbane."

  • or Melbourne.

  • >> Melbourne.

  • >> Melbourne.

  • Crown Casino.

  • Where is the Crown Casino?

  • >> Melbourne.

  • >> Oh, Melbourne.

  • Oh, I was in Brisbane somehow.

  • Somehow, I was there.

  • I said, "I have to go back and see my parents.

  • You come with me?"

  • "Okay, I come with you before you have to stop and Melbourne."

  • I said, "Okay."

  • Then we go to Melbourne, then I call my friend.

  • I said I call my friend after dinner,

  • but as soon as I landing, I said,

  • "My friend take care of everything.

  • He has car, and everything."

  • I call my friend, "Hey, I'm in Melbourne.

  • You come over."

  • "Yeah, it takes me one half hour flight and where are you?"

  • "Brisbane."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • I said okay.

  • Then forget it.

  • The next day, I tell my friend, my friend said,

  • "Let's take a flight to Canberra."

  • I said, "No, easy drive three hours."

  • I said, "I always drive three hours."

  • "Are you sure?"

  • "Yeah, sure, sure, sure."

  • We get up.

  • I said, "No we're going to get in the car

  • and put all our luggage," and that I call my father, I said,

  • "12:30 in Canberra in some corner waiting for me."

  • Okay? Okay.

  • I have the phone.

  • I keep driving.

  • Then my friend got out of the car, put the eye mask,

  • then tried to sleep, and I'm driving,

  • and he was gambling the whole night.

  • And we're driving, driving, driving.

  • Three hours passed.

  • I still cannot find the way.

  • My friend, all the sudden get up.

  • "I'm hungry."

  • I said, "No-no-no, not there yet."

  • Then I keep driving.

  • Suddenly, I see the sign.

  • Another 900 miles.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • Then I call my father, "Father, go.

  • I see you tonight."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • Well, I keep driving until 3 o'clock.

  • My friend got up.

  • I said, "No-no, sleep, sleep."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • "No, I cannot sleep anymore.

  • Oh, my God, where are you going?"

  • I said, "I don't know."

  • Still driving.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • That's how I always mixed up,

  • and I got three stops by the police.

  • That's how I remember, but these days I'm coming back.

  • No matter I have a chance, I just Canberra, Canberra,

  • Australia, Australia, because we know the crew here.

  • boom, and everybody thought it was a terrorist attack,

  • and the news, everybody, they blame me.

  • "Jackie, how can you do that?

  • You should tell us!"

  • How can I tell everybody.

  • I already tell -- we already tell 100,000 people surround ,

  • the letter, I said, "We going to blow up the [inaudible], okay?"

  • [ Laughter ]
