Jackie Chan refutes media reports claiming he has announced his retirement

Hong Kong-born Chinese stuntman, actor Jackie Chan has announced he is not retiring yet from action films, saying the media misquoted him during the interview he granted at Cannes film festival. CBS News, Reuters, and Associated press  among other news agencies, had reported he announced his retirement
Jackie has debunked the report, he wrote on his official website on Sunday:
Hello all my friends and fans,
Yesterday in my press conference in Cannes for Chinese 12 Zodiac I said that this movie was my last big action movie.Today I was shocked when I woke up to read all the news coverage that I was retiring from doing Action movies.
I just want to let everyone know that I am not retiring from doing action movies. What I meant to say is that I need to do less of the life risking stunts on my movies. After all these years of doing so many stunts and breaking so many bones, I need to take better care of my body so I can keep working.
I will continue to do international action movies.
And I will keep improving my English :-)
I love all of you!
