Film veteran Jackie Chan mocked Chinese beauty Zhang Ziyi's martial art skills on the set of the 2001 action Rush Hour 2.

The Beijing-born actress, 25, landed the role of villain HU LI in the Rush HOUR sequel after dazzling international audiences in the surprise hit Crouching Tiger, HIDDEN DRAGON.

Ziyi says, "He was always making fun of me, calling me 'Crouching Tiger girl' and was curious to see how I would perform.

"The first take of one of the stunts went totally wrong. He walked past and whispered in my ear, 'What kind of Crouching Tiger girl are you?'"
