Chinese actor, Jet Li was spotted in Tibet and nothing short of a DNA test could have proved that he was the same legendary actor we watched while growing up.
The actor looked very frail in a picture shared by a fan during a visit to Tibet.
The actor’s look can be attributed to hyperthyroidism, a heart condition that can cause fatigue and weight loss. Jet Li revealed he was suffering from the condition back in 2013 after he was diagnosed of it in 2010.
On Monday Li’s manager, Steven Chasman, said that it was just a bad photo of someone who is 55 years old.
“He has hyperthyroidism that he’s been dealing with for almost 10 years. It’s nothing life-threatening and he’s dealing with it,” Chasman told the Washington Post, adding that he has spoken with Li’s assistant.
Speaking about his condition, “I’m in pain, but I’m not suffering. I’m happy,” he said, adding that he takes medication.
Fans are however praying for the actor as many say the man in the pictures looks way older to be Li.
