"I think this ('Fearless') is going to be my last martial arts movie, as I have summarised my 'mind experience' of my martial arts career. I will act in a sci-fi movie, action movie, even so called Kung fu movies, but I am just an actor and I am just simply acting out the lives of other people in the movies."

JET LI'S LAWYERS WEIGH IN ON EMBEZZLEMENT ACCUSATIONS
Jet Li strikes back at allegations of embezzlement by posting letters from his attorney.
The 50-year-old Kung Fu star came under fire recently when a Chinese media company "April Media" accused him of embezzlement from One Foundation, a charity that he founded in 2007.
On April 22nd, April Media posted financial figures from 10 charity organizations in China, including One Foundation.
According to the chart, One Foundation received over $380 million RMB dollars for last year's Ya'an Earthquake relief.
However, it only forked out rougly 10% of the donation.
The headline asked, "Did Jet Li Embezzle $300 million of the Lushan Earthquake Fund?"
The weibo post generated a lot of discussion on China's cyberspace and prompted a reply from One Foundation.
One Foundation posted a statement online explaining that disbursing earthquake relief funds takes time and the post-earthquake reconstruction work is an on going process that requires careful and responsible planning.
It asks their supporters to be patient and promises that in a year or two, results of their work will be revealed.
Li first laughed off the allegations by jokingly asking if someone could teach him how to embezzle $300 million dollars and get away with it?
A day later, he took further measures to protect his name.
Li posted letters from his attorney on his Weibo account on April 24.
The letters, addressed to April Media, accuses the company of slandering Li with "baseless" allegations.
The lawyers believe that April Media's Weibo post has "negatively effected the public opinions of Mr.Li."
On behalf of Li, the lawyers asks that April Media remove the related posts on Weibo and issue an official apology to Li.
They also reserve the right to sue.
Lawyer of April Media, Wu Fa Tian responded and told the Associated Press that his client has not yet receive any indictment papers but will respond once they do.
Wu also added that Li's letters from the attorney only took attention away from the underlying question - where did the money go?
Wu said, "April Media simply made public the financial numbers of these charitable organization. These are facts, not made up� If they're going to solicit donations, they need to have the ability to follow through with execution. You need to deliver the money to the victims."
Li was inspired to start One Foundation after surviving the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsuanmi, while vacationing with family in the Maldives.
He was briefly separated from his daughter when the water swept their hotel but at the end, the family was unharmed.
One Foundation was Li's way of giving back to society.
After posting letters from his attorney on his Weibo account, Li received more than 6000 likes, retweets and comments.
