Is Jackie Chan dead? No, and the famous Chinese actor even recently spoke on live TV about all the Jackie Chan death hoaxes that keep coming up in 2013.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, rumors about Jackie Chan's death are intended to spread viruses or to steal personal information.

When asked on TV why there's been two hoaxes on the internet claiming he's died, Jackie Chan responded:

"I don't know. No, more than twice. More than twice!"

Jackie Chan says just this past week he received a phone call where someone was so glad that he was still alive, exclaiming, "Oh my God!" He describes the scene with his hand held up to his head like a telephone:

"My manager called me in the United States, asking, 'Are you okay?' 'I'm okay.' 'Everybody thought you'd died this morning!' 'What!,' I said. 'No, no... don't worry, before I die I'll call you.'"
