See what Jet Li, the Chinese superstar actor now look like (photos)


What 55-year-old Jet Li, the Chinese popular and superstar actor now look like is a bit shocking as some people that knew him over the years with his mouthwatering stunts will find it difficult to recognize their favorite and so fun to watch actor.

The photos of the Beijing born legendary actor recently surfaced online and majority of the people that saw the pictures suggested that his health issues may have deteriorated him, as he's reportedly battling health problems, including hyperthyroidism, a heart condition and past leg/spine injuries from stunts for years – posing with an unidentified man assisting him while visiting a temple in Tibet.

In 2010, the actor was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, which reportedly caused his weight to fluctuate. His doctor reportedly advised him against exercising, as some of the symptoms of the illness included muscle weakness and sleeping problems.

Years later, in a 2016 interview with The Straits Times, Jet Li said that media reports of his health were greatly exaggerated. He added that he had recovered from hyperthyroidism, and added: “There is nothing to worry about my health .”

But the South China Morning Post reported on Saturday (May 19) that Li said last year that even though he has been taking medication to keep his overactive thyroid in check, the condition “kept coming back“.

On Monday Li’s manager, Steven Chasman, reacted to the photo, saying: “He has hyperthyroidism that he’s been dealing with for almost 10 years.

“It’s nothing life-threatening and he’s dealing with it,” Chasman told the Washington Post, adding that he has spoken with Li’s assistant.
