He was nicknamed Paopao, which means "Cannonball", because of his seemingly unlimited energy and desire to always move. Aries are known for their passion for life that is why they are always considered as the life of parties.

Like all Aries, Jackie is a marvelous lover and partner, with an infectious passion for life and work. Unlike his action-packed movies, Jackie is a one-woman man. In 1982, Jackie Chan married Taiwanese actress Lin Feng-Jia, whom he shares a son. Although Hong Kong media alleged that he was the father of Elaine Ng Yi-Lei’s daughter, the rumors have not been verified and he continues to enjoy a strong marriage.
