Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

First of all, the word superstar really turns me off--and I'll tell you why. The word "star" man, it's an illusion. it's something what the public calls you. You should look upon oneself as an actor, man. I mean you would be very pleased if somebody said (punches his fist into his open hand) "man, you are a super actor!" it is much better than, you know, superstar. See more »

Trivia:

In the popular Nintendo game series, Pokémon, the fighting type monster Hitmonlee is based on Lee. See more »

Trademark:

Often had a scene in his films where in a fight, he gets wounded. Standing stunned, he tastes his own blood and then he goes berserk wiping out any opponent in his path. See more »
