To us mere mortals, Hollywood action legends like Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and, indeed, Jackie Chan are made of steel, dynamite and colossal amounts of badass.

They're fearless and would never run away from a fight.

Or would they...?

FHM sat down with Hong Kong hero Jackie Chan to talk about Chinese Zodiac, his latest movie. We wanted to get his advice on how to be fearless. After all, who better to ask than the man who has spent the four decades performing stunts that have made our eyes fall out of our heads?

Watch the video above for what he had to say. We're not just saying it, it will surprise you.

So then we decided to ask him for self defence tips. How could we, with our complete lack of martial arts skills and general co-ordination, handle ourselves when confronted by a knife-wielding maniac?

Jackie's answer? Run away, obviously...

 

 

These might not be the brutal words you'd expect from one of the most kick-ass men in Hollywood but, to be honest, it sounds like smart advice to us!

Chinese Zodiac is out on Blu-ray and DVD now, from Universal Pictures (UK)
