Is Jet Li Okay? Fan Takes Photo With Action Star And He Looks Super Thin And Nearly Unrecognizable…PHOTOS INSIDE!
If you are a fan of action films, then you’re probably also a fan of Jet Li. There was a time when he and Jackie Chan were two of the biggest stars in the action world.
Sadly, Jet has been slowing down a little faster than Chan. He has suffered multiple spine injuries (thanks to all those fight scenes) and his doctor forced him to retire from fighting/stunts back in 2013. He basically said, “You’ll be in a wheelchair in a few years if you don’t stop.”
In addition to the spine injury, it was revealed Jet suffers from hyperthyroidism, which is not exactly a life-threatening illness, but it can make it difficult to maintain a healthy weight because it can boost your metabolism.
Jet is 55-years-old now, and on Saturday (May 19) a fan in Tibet posed for a photo with the actor.
And as you can see, he didn’t look so hot for a 55-year-old action star…
Fans saw this photo and were shocked, and you know…we can’t really blame them.
Back in December of 2017, Jet posted the video you see below to YouTube, and the difference between Jet in 2017 and Jet in 2018 is shocking…
But according to his manager, the photo you see above just had bad lighting. It simply wasn’t a good photo.
He released the statement you see below…
“He has hyperthyroidism that he’s been dealing with for almost 10 years. It’s nothing life-threatening and he’s dealing with it. We appreciate everyone’s concern. But Jet is completely fine. There’s nothing wrong with him. There’s no life-threatening illness. He’s in great shape.”
I mean, I suppose we have to believe him. It does seem like a bad photo, but still…a bit concerning.
