Jet Li is probably well known now not only in Hong Kong, but all over the world. He has starred in such hits as "Shaolin Temple", "Once Upon a Time in China", "Fong Sai Yuk", "Fist of Legend" and more. He is considered one of the biggest star in Hong Kong today, and his skills are no doubt being recognized by Hollywood producers today. He began his Hollywood career with the hit movie "Lethal Weapon 4", playing for the first time in his career, the role of a villain. He has won the praises of critics and thousands of fans with the movie, immediately winning him movie offers from different producers. A bit of a bad news was that Jet Li will not appear in Matrix 2 and 3. Other news is that he is currently filming a film co written by Luc Besson (Nikita, Leon, Le Grand Bleu), named "Kiss of the Dragon" alongside Bridget Fonda. This film will be released in the USA 6 July. He will also be appearing in a James Wong film, called "The One"

He started learning martial arts as early as eight years old. He was trained patiently by his trainer Wu Ben. And at that early age he got the privilege to be part of the first Wu Shu team to tour the West, performing also at Nixon's White House.
Jet Li is very talented. He has the charisma, and he can act very well. He has the grace and the style and this can be seen in the varieties of movies he has made. He can perform drama, comedy, romance, and unquestionably he can do well in action. Jet Li can also direct, he has directed his movie Born to Defence. He also produced some of his movies such as "Kung Fu Colt Master", "Fist of Legend", "Bodyguard from Beijing", "New Legend of Shaolin", "Fong Sai Yuk", and "Fong Sai Yuk 2".

Jet Li was born on April 26, 1963 in Beijing, Heibei. He won the championship in Chinese National Martial Arts Contest from 1974 to 1979 (5 consecutive years). He has also participated in some drama performances. His first movie was "Shaolin Temple", this made him famous as it was China's first modern Kung Fu movie. This introduced Shaolin's Wu Shu to the world. There were hundreds of youngsters who visited the remains of the original Shaolin temple, hoping to train in the same manner as Li's character in the movie. His second movie, "Kids from Shaolin", was as good as the "Shaolin Temple". He also likes the color white. His favourite films that he made were the "Shaolin Temple" series because it introduced him to the film industry, and "Once Upon A Time in China" because it brought him fame as an actor and martial artist.

Jet Li is a shy and timid person. He is very conservative, eats healthy meals, and workouts everyday to stay in shape. He is also very private about his life, and for this not many questions are asked of his private life.

In 2002, the film Hero was released in the US market. This film was both commercial and a critical success. Li took a big risk with the 2005 action drama, Unleashed (a.k.a. Danny the Dog) where he portrays an adult with the mentality of a child who has been raised like an animal. A sombre film with more depth than had been previously seen in Li's films, it co-starred dramatic actors, Bob Hoskins and Morgan Freeman.
