Chinese movie star Jet Li reappears on the cover of TIME’s latest edition in Asia. He was also invited by Former U.S. President Bill Clinton to attend the Clinton Global Initiative meeting in Hong Kong on Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2008.
TIME magazine writes, “It is difficult to name any other A-list celebrity, not even Bono, who has made such a total commitment. There are plenty who touch down in Africa between albums or movies, but none has actually walked off the job as Li has done, at the top of his game.”
Jet Li said, in the past few years, he has learned from his Buddhist masters that people can reach their ultimate happiness only if they substantially lower their material desires.
