Jackie Chan officially becomes a Guinness World Record holder. The actor now has two spots in the record books for "Most Stunts by a Living Actor" and "Most Credits in One Movie". While accepting the awards in Shanghai, the action star said he did not expect to break any records for his work. SOUNDBITE: Jackie Chan, actor, saying (Mandarin): "Actually, when I made this film, I never thought about winning a Guinness Record. I never thought about it. I did fifteen different roles. In fact, you could say more than fifteen roles. I also joined in dubbing and putting effects." In November Chan said his latest film "Zodiac" will be his last major action flick, and not to mention, his best film in 10 years, upping the anticipation for the movie's release. SOUNDBITE: Jackie Chan, actor, saying (Mandarin): "It's really difficult to gauge the audience's taste now. But now I only (want to) make films that I'm in favor of watching or making myself. Because I already made films for the audience for so many years, it's time to make a film for myself now. I have no idea whether audiences will like this film, but I believe it will bring a lot of entertainment to them." "Zodiac" will be released in Asia later this month.
