R.I.P Jackie Chan? Not So Fast

Jackie Chan Dead? Not So Fast

Jackie Chan wants to set the record straight: Contrary to Internet rumors, he is, in fact, not dead.

"Jackie is alive and well," reads a note on the action star's Facebook page. "He did not suffer a heart attack and die, as was reported on many social networking sites and in online news reports."

Chan, 56, is working hard, however, continues the missive: "Jackie is fine and is busy preparing for the filming of his next movie."

Still not convinced? For those who require proof, Chan posted a photo of himself dated March 29 on his Web site showing him meeting with top Japanese officials.

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's son Jaden may know how to throw a mean blow in The Karate Kid remake, but in real life, he's often the one under attack.

"Jaden's a good kid, [but] he's always bullied by his sister," Smith's costar Jackie Chan told PEOPLE with a chuckle at the L.A. premiere for their film Monday.

"I scream for my mom," Smith, 11, says of his 9-year-old attacker. "She usually takes Willow's side. My dad takes Willow's side, too. That's why I usually hang out with my brother [Trey]. I don't bully anyone."

The boy's got chops!

Learning the moves of a true martial arts fighter, Will Smith's youngest son Jaden Smith is proving he has what it takes when he stars opposite Jackie Chan in a remake of the 1984 classic, The Karate Kid, due in theaters June 11.

"I trained every day for four months with Master Wu [the film's fight coordinator]," Jaden, 11, tells PEOPLE as he takes on his first leading role as an American boy named Dre Parker who moves to China. "We did a lot of stretching."

Jaden mastered front kicks and upper blocks through his hard work ethic and dedication, says Chan, 55, who plays maintenance man Mr. Han – an unlikely friend to Jaden's character. "He took the training very seriously. I was very impressed with him," he adds.
