Announcing his retirement from action movies, Hong Kong star Jackie Chan confirmed the worst kept show business secret – that he will become Asia’s first Bono. Chan joked with journalists about “already having the bad sunglasses” but became irritated when pressed on his views about Chow Yun-fat, who in April announced himself as “The Chinese Sting.”. He’s saving African elephants!” Chan told the press. “African! What’s wrong with saving Asian elephants? He’s ignoring the elephants in his own room. – Asian elephants. Asian! Asian elephants are the ones to save!” Chan ended the press conference with a string of Cantonese obscenities and some half hearted karate chops aimed at imaginary African elephants.”
