Jackie Chan: Sick Kids Hospital

"Helped himself by the Red Cross as a child,

[Jackie Chan] was told not to repay the giver, but to spread the charity onwards. He remembers as a young star being asked to spend a day with sick kids in hospital. Arrogantly giving them a mere 15 minutes, he arrived to find himself handed a bunch of presents to give the children, the staff knowing how much it would mean. Seeing the delight of the children, Jackie was profoundly moved, returning the next year -- with his own presents."

[A Japanese woman once jumped in front of a bullet train because she had learned that Jackie Chan already had a girlfriend. Another woman, similarly deluded, drank a vile of poison in his office.]
