Jackie Chan replaces missing prints


Superstar Jackie Chan was joined at his print-leaving event by Chris Tucker and Jaden Smith.

10 Jun – Jackie Chan, who was the first Chinese film star to leave prints of his hands and feet at Hollywood's Chinese Theatre, had to do so again when the cement slab featuring his prints has since disappeared.

According to BBC News, representatives at the newly named TCL Chinese Theatre, previously known as Grauman's Chinese Theatre, were sure that the slab was not stolen, but they had no idea how and when the prints vanished. Presumably, the slab was misplaced as slabs are changed often to make room for new entries in the collection.

Chan is the first star to have his prints done twice. Joining him on his momentous occasion was his "Rush Hour" co-star Chris Tucker and "Karate Kid" co-star Jaden Smith.

The prolific actor, director and producer sank his hands and feet into the wet cement, and even leaned over and left an impression of his nose.

"Twelve years ago I did the handprint, but somebody stole it. That's the second time," said Chan, on 6 June 2013. "I really want to thank you."


Jackie Chan directed, produced, wrote, starred in and cinematographed his latest feature film, "CZ12".

Chan revealed that he had first dreamed of having his prints in cement at the theatre when he was invited to a ceremony featuring Sylvester Stallone in 1993.

"My first time in the Chinese Theatre, I walked on the red carpet ... and I saw so many stars doing the interviews. And at that time I had nothing to do, standing there looking around."

"During all those years I dreamed. Slowly, slowly, I got there," said the actor, who has starred in more than 100 films and directed 20.
