Hollywood actor and martial artist Jackie Chan hit the camera on Monday while on holiday on the island of Cyprus. A group of fans spotted Chan as he boarded a boat at the idyllic Latsi Beach near Paphos, Cyprus.
Latsi Beach is known as one of the most beautiful on the island and throughout the Mediterranean. Despite the fact that Cyprus has long been an extremely popular destination for tourists from all over the world, there are still many undiscovered places on the island.
The stunning coastline with sparkling turquoise waters has even been voted one of the best “secret beaches” in Europe because it is not yet open to most tourists. Therefore, it is not surprising that the world famous actor decided to soak up the sun and swim in the purest water.
Cyprus is one of the best holiday destinations in Europe with incredible beaches with crystal clear waters, magnificent ancient monuments with a long history of the country and countless opportunities for fine dining and luxury accommodation.
Jackie Chan was born in 1954 to a very poor refugee family in Hong Kong, affected by the Chinese Civil War, and began practicing martial arts from a very young age.
His immense talent in martial arts, along with equally impressive acting skills, have prompted him to appear in films since the 1960s. However, his career began even earlier – Chan starred in films at the age of five, as a child actor.
He soon became famous for his acrobatic style, which often included dizzying stunts that the actor performed himself, without the help of stunt doubles. The martial artist’s fame spread beyond China in the late 1980s, when he began acting in action films in both the United States and China.
When he played alongside American comedian Chris Tucker in the hit 1998 film about cop buddy “Rush Hour,” Chan’s stellar power in the United States skyrocketed. During his long career spanning decades and different continents, Chan has appeared in over 150 films, many of which are blockbusters. The martial arts genius is also an accomplished opera vocalist and has become a music star in Asia.
Chan is expected to star in a film titled “Project X-Traction,” alongside professional wrestler and actor John Cena, in 2021.
Due to his international popularity, Chan has long been recognized as one of the highest paid actors in the world. In 2015, Forbes estimated his fortune at $ 350 million.
Despite his considerable wealth, Chan is extremely merciful. The martial arts star is proud of her charitable work. He has been named one of the 10 most charitable celebrities on the Forbes list.
