A strenuous exercise can cause a drastic decrease of weight, and as a result, the 52-year-old actor’s weight has been fluctuating from light to heavy and back again.
Five years ago, Jet Li admitted that he has been suffering from hyperthyroidism, which has affected his metabolism.
According to CNWest, five years later, the effect of his disease was clearly visible when he attended One Foundation charity dinner in Wan Chai last week.
The actor looked haggard with puffy eyes and a swollen face as he joined his peers at the event.
According to good friend Tiffany Chen, Jet has been taking Chinese traditional medicine for his health, and faithfully meditates to calm himself down.
The martial arts actor, however, declined to be interviewed at the event.
