* NoStuntDouble NoStuntDouble: Famously, Jackie Chan did almost all of his own stunts. As he's gotten up in years and his body has begun to wear out, it has necessitated him leaving some of the more advanced stuff to stunt doubles. This is also probably behind his decision to stop doing big action movies.

** He was going to make a film called ''Nosebleed'' where he played a skyscraper window washer who discovers a plan to blow up the World Trade Center. Then the September 11th attacks happened.

Added DiffLines:
* ExecutiveMeddling: His autobiography gives a quite unflattering view of famous producer Lo Wei during Jackie's time working for him in the '70s, stuck in the mindset of how martial arts films were supposed to work and undercutting all attempts by Jackie to do his own thing. Also, his Hollywood career had several false starts due to producers and directors who completely failed to understand his appeal.

Years later, Jackie met him again and they wound up doing a number of movies together. The bully in question was SammoHung. ** This is more of a {{Subversion}} considering that they're not enemies as adults. * WhatCouldHaveBeen: SylvesterStallone wanted Jackie to play Simon Phoenix in ''Film/DemolitionMan'', but he wasn't available. ** He was offered the lead role in ''{{Martial Law}}'', but didn't want to tie himself to a possibly long-running series, so he told his friend Sammo Hung about it, and he got the job. * NoStuntDouble
