This is what Jet Li looked like just 12 years ago, at the peak of his action movie career … but now he looks much older than his 55 years … as he deals with medical issues.
The pic was posted by a fan who posed with the action star during a recent visit to Tibet. It shows Jet looking frail and nearly bald. He revealed back in 2013 he suffers from hyperthyroidism and a heart condition.
At the time, he said he could continue making action films or spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair. But, more to the point … Jet has also suffered serious leg and spine injuries over the course of his career, admitting he can’t stand for a long period of time without hunching.
So, apparently, Jet Li is suffering from "hyperthyroidism and spinal problems" and this is him now ❤️😓: pic.twitter.com/Ss0W2EL96D
