Jackie Chan's Hong Kong Hideout

When MTV's Cribs interview celebrities in U.S. about their residences, most of them would boast about their private entertainment room, numerous luxury vehicles with over-sized wheels, & other superficial wealth.

Jackie Chan on other hand decided to be as low key as possible in Hong Kong. Living in an old factory building with rusty roller gate as entrance, the world famous movie star's ride is a Mitsubishi Lancer EVO, & enjoys collecting tea sets & wine.

Following the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, Chan donated ¥10 million (925K Euros) to help those in need. In addidtion, he is planning to make a film about the Chinese earthquake to raise money for survivors. In June 2006, he announced the donation of half his assets to charity (HK$500 million or 40.5 million Euros) upon his death, citing his admiration of the effort made by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates to help those in need.
