I want a Mini-Cooper because it’s fuel efficient, emissions efficient and all that stuff. It’s small and better for the environment. I think that will be my next car.
I’m ashamed to say this, but I watched every episode of ‘Starsky and Hutch’ as a kid. I loved that show, but now I think it’s stupid – they’d have a car chase for no reason, then Paul Michael Glaser would shoot the car and it would blow up.
It was all that stuff about taking your parents’ car when you’re 13, sneaking booze into rock shows and ditching school with your friends. I could relate to that as a former teenager, rather than as a present parent.
On the average, I don’t spend more than 15 minutes in the car – to go to the golf course or the gym. And that’s the only time I listen to the radio.
American stuntmen are smart – they think about safety. When they do a jump in a car, they calculate everything: the speed, the distance… But in Hong Kong, we don’t know how to count. Everything we do is a guess. If you’ve got the guts, you do it. All of my stuntmen have gotten hurt.
