Movies of the week
Jet Li is not a man to sit back on his past laurels. He is amongst those who value the fame they have and use it for those resposible for the fame. The actor who will be again starring in 'The Expandables 2' after being part of highly successful 'The Expendables' is still connected to his humane side.
The actor who is busy with work now took a break from the movies before 2009 to help the needy. He researched to work out the best possible philanthropic model for China post earthquake. His organisation does not depend on huge sums from few individuals rather they get small amounts from many which collectively add up to something that goes on to help a lot.
He is being supported by the likes of Jackie Chan, Tony Blaire, Bill Clinton amongst others. Even after being back from the break, he still is very active for the cause and is trying to spread the idea and work in other places too. These kind of gestures from stars like him are a great inspiration for others.
The villain in Lethal Weapon 4 and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is a real hero otherwise. He enjoyed the break with another star Donatella Versace in a Chinese village spending quality time with children affected by the quake.
I wish we all can touch that side of ours sometimes!
