Dear Jet Li,

I've got so many questions to ask, but I'll keep to the basics, I guess.

I know your fame takes up most of your time, so what do you actually think of your fame?

If you could go back and change anything in your life to help yourself or anyone else what would it be and why?

Yeah, and I'd like to congratulation you for your work in Romeo Must Die. I was spectacular. I don't know many Chinese movies that you're in, (hey I'm only 14) but maybe you could recommend some that would really be worth watching. I'd love to get my hands on all of them ... but, unfortunately ... I'll have to wait. Thank you so much for your time, I appreciate it. I'll always be a fan of yours.

Reading, PA, U.S.A.

Jet's Response:

Fame means different things during different periods of your life. Of course, there is a good side and a bad side to fame -- fame gives a lot, but it also takes a lot away. These days, I don't pay any attention to fame and fortune. Fame is given by others and not something I have any control over. I try to do what I think I should be doing and don't pay much attention to what others may say.

To answer your second question, based on our current level of understanding, a person can't go back in time, so I don't spend any time thinking about something that is impossible.

And to have good suggestion on my other films to watch I recommend checking with some fans. I'm sure they can give you good recommendations.
