"When it comes to stunt choreography, I have a lot of advice to give. On the set, I showed him how he could make his moves stronger and more powerful. But I also shared many stories of hardship from my life with him. I constantly reminded him that he should always appreciate all that he has because so many others in China have so little," Chan said.
Chan was also full of praise for Smith.
"He's really versatile. He can be funny and dramatic all within minutes. I think he is a natural actor. He always sounds sincere and real. Everything that comes out of his mouth sounds authentic. He's respectful, talented, hard working and charming, just like his parents (actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith)."
