Stupid Celebrity Quote Of The Dayby Doug Mataconis
Martial arts movie star Jackie Chan doesn’t like freedom all that much:
“I’m not sure if it’s good to have freedom or not,” he told an audience at a regional economic forum in southern China Saturday. “If you’re too free, you’re like the way Hong Kong is now. It’s very chaotic. Taiwan is also chaotic.” He continued: “I’m gradually beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled. If we’re not being controlled, we’ll just do what we want.”
Chan says this while he spends most of his time in Los Angeles shooting movies. Apparently, he admires the totalitarian restraint of Chinese society, but only from a distance.
