Jackie Chan Celebrates 36th Wedding Anniversary with Joan Lin
In his career, it is undeniable that Jackie Chan (成龍) is a megastar and is endearingly referred to as “Big Brother”. In his personal life, however, Jackie has been branded a heartless womanizer. In addition to his notorious affairs, Jackie’s name is tarnished for neglecting his illegitimate daughter, Etta Ng (吳卓林). With his abundance of love affairs, many are surprised and shocked that his wife, Joan Lin (林鳳嬌), has remained by his side.
In the early years of their marriage Jackie was not a good husband. However, the 64-year-old actor seems to have a change in behavior recently and displayed a rare side of himself. On Chinese Valentine’s Day, Jackie took the opportunity to declare his love for his wife of 36 years. On his social media, he posted a throwback photo of the couple and a more recent photo of them together.
Jackie wrote, “Today is Chinese Valentine’s Day. Although I have always grown up learning about Chinese culture, I seldom celebrate these types of holidays. I have never seriously spent and enjoyed this holiday. I have never been a romantic person. Joan is also not a person who cares for these gestures. One time, when I gave her a large bouquet of roses, she called me mental. This time, though, I want to send Joan a song: ‘Thank you for a Lifetime’. Having known her for so many years, I have often told her ‘Thank you’. Thank you for cooking for me. Thank you for ironing my clothes. Thank you for taking such good care of my two dogs, JJ and Jones. Thank you for taking care of my parents. Thank you for always being by our son, Jaycee Chan’s (房祖名) side. I think I will have to say these two words to you for the rest of my life. I have prepared this gift for more than two years. I want to thank Jay Chou (周杰倫) and Preston Lee (李安修) for helping me. Since I have put in so much effort into this gift, I’m sure she won’t call me mental again! This year is my 36th wedding anniversary with Joan. In addition to the song, I also want to say to her: Joan, I love you I also want to wish everyone a happy Valentine’s Day! I love you all as well.”
