Jackie Chan Avoids Questions About Elaine Ng’s Arrest

Jackie Chan (成龍) reacted with confusion when reporters asked him if he had any comments in regards to Elaine Ng’s (吳綺莉) arrest last week. Elaine, who had an affair with Jackie in the late 90’s, was arrested on suspicion of intimidation after their daughter, Etta Ng (吳卓林), reported her to the police. Elaine has since been released on bail, but her relationship with her daughter continues to be estranged.

Last night, a group of close friends in the industry hosted a celebration party for Jackie, who won a lifetime achievement award at this year’s Academy Awards. Jackie’s wife Joan Lin (林鳳嬌) and son Jaycee Chan (房祖名), however, were not in attendance. Jackie joked that his family has gotten bored of seeing his Oscar trophy. “They’re both very cool people. They didn’t even congratulate me,” said Jackie with a laugh.

The 62-year-old actor originally did not want to hold a celebration for his achievement, as he did not want to come off as a show-off. It took Emperor Group chairman Albert Yeung (楊受成) four months to convince Jackie to turn it into a celebration. The celebration party was also co-hosted by Eric Tsang (曾志偉), Derek Yee (爾冬陞), and John Shum (岑建勳).

“I said yes after they told me that they would invite the people whom I’ve worked with over the last few decades,” said Jackie. “They’re all old friends in the industry. This is our best chance to see them again.”

Etta Ng, Jackie’s daughter with Elaine Ng, reported her mother to the police last week. At the mention of “Little Dragon Girl”, Jackie smiled and avoided questions. He ended the interview saying, “What? What happened? Thank you everyone!”

Jacky Cheung Congratulates Aaron Kwok

Quite a few industry giants were invited to Jackie’s party, including Carina Lau (劉嘉玲), Jacky Cheung (張學友), Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒), Anthony Wong (黃秋生), and Yuen Biao (元彪). Anthony said he did not bring a gift for Jackie, saying, “Big Brother already has everything. I came here to congratulate him personally. He deserved it. He’s amazing and a hard worker.”

Jacky Cheung congratulated Jackie and his fellow Heavenly King Aaron Kwok (郭富城) as well, who will be tying the knot with girlfriend Moka Fang (方媛).

Nicholas Tse: “Jackie Chan Is Our Pride”

Wearing all black, Nicholas Tse offered humble words of congratulations. He said, “I’m so happy for Big Brother. He is our pride. One of us has finally stepped onto the international stage to win such a representative award.” (Do you see Jackie’s win as your goal as well?) “I’ve never thought about having those qualifications.”

Nicholas said he has no intentions on taking Hollywood, but he would not turn the offer down when the opportunity comes. He added that the Hong Kong film industry still has many great productions that are worthy to be proud of.

    Jackie Chan (成龍), what a horrible father.

    Side note: Nicholas Tse went on America’s Next Top Model in 2012 but I guess it didn’t work out for him since he never got any Hollywood opportunities.

      @mike “Horrible” is an understatement – I would use other words to describe how I feel about Jackie Chan as a person and a father but going to refrain from using them here, since guaranteed to get me banned, lol.

      In terms of opportunities for other Asians: it’s hard for other Asian artists – especially Chinese artists – to break through, since Hollywood is notorious for not being accepting of Asian artists, as evidenced by all the “whitewashing” that has been decried in recent years (which has actually been going on for decades) as well as the continued casting of Asians in stereotypical roles. Jackie Chan’s success in Hollywood is an exception and essentially would not have happened if Bruce Lee hadn’t paved the way for him with the whole martial arts craze back in the 1970s (which, technically, Jackie Chan’s so called martial arts isn’t even real martial arts but that’s a whole other discussion). He was also lucky to have a truly great, competent manager (Willie Chan) back then, who knew how to seize opportunities and got him into Hollywood in the first place (and worked tirelessly to build that career for him for close to 30 years). Unless Hollywood changes their attitude (which, by the looks of it, is never going to happen), Jackie Chan’s example (I’m talking about his career in Hollywood, not his personal life, lol) isn’t one that will be repeated anytime soon, if ever.

    The man is having a perfect streak: all of his children now have arrest records.

    Now that’s what I call his real life-time achievement.

      @happybi I haven’t watched any of his work ever since I found out he is an awful husband and father. Personally, I rather have a great, loving family and a happy life than all the money and fame that he has right now. He can’t take all that with him when he dies.

        @dramas4me if previous news hold true. He plan to donate all his money to charity after his death. His son is not suppose to get anything. So at least its going toward something good. But yes. I don’t care what he had accomplished. To me he is just an awful father and husband.

        @happybi Yep. He doesn’t even want to take care of his own daughter and she looks just like him. It’s hard to imagine he would help strangers. I guess time will tell us right?

        @dramas4me That I won’t pin on him. He doesn’t recognise that daughter. But am sure he must have paid some settlement.

        @funnlim Do you really think he provided some financial support for his daughter? Certainly I hope you are right about that. Even some very poor fathers don’t even run away from their responsibilities. This guy has enough money to live lavishly for his couple lives time.

      • funnlim replied:

        @dramas4me she has repeatedly denied it. I do t think allowance. I think settlement and perhaps trust fund and a very ironclad settlement agreement so he can deny he had anything to do with the girl. I do not believe she walked away not taking a penny.

    I thought I am the only one in this forum that is absolutely disgusted with Jackie Chan. Looks like I am in good company after all.

    Jackie Chan if you are reading this – you have received many awards but one award that you deserve most is the one for being the most irresponsible, selfish and stingy father award. I am sure forumers here would not mind donating money to the making of such an award and present it to you!

      @creditor I too am disgusted. But don’t take away his achievements. It was an amazing honour, oscars rarely honours people of other race. So I give him that. But when someone told me how much he cared for his stunt guys when he was early in his career, how he shared jackets, etc, I just said well, he can’t even remember his son’s age or be bothered. What’s the point? Yes he was a great employer, probably a fantastic friend and an amazing co star but he failed as a husband and worse, he was a disappointment as a father most of all. BUT at least when his son really needed him the most, he finally showed up.

    yeah i agree with funn here. i don’t think jc deserves to be castigated for being a poor father to etta. from what i’m aware, he didn’t even want her when elaine told him. elaine decided to have her on her own, which is her choice and her cross to bear. however, since he had a part in her conception, he should be providing child support or some sort of financial assistance so that she can also live with better circumstances. he is. however, a poor father figure, just not primarily for etta.

    and yes, his achievements were hard earned and well-deserved. he’s not a great guy, but he has made other contributions

    He got an award for his work in films industry, not the great dutiful, ethical husband and father of the year. Two separate things and exclusive of one another. Don’t dimish one because he sucks at the other. I don’t like how he handled his home and family, but can’t dispute that he made an impact and footprint into the western world, one hoorah for Asians.
