Jackie Chan makes his own clothes and sporting goods because he's sick of getting mobbed when he goes shopping.

The martial arts movie star has become a retail success in his native Asia, but he admits he only started making clothing so he didn't have to shop for gear.

He says, "I can't go shopping in Asia. Whenever I go into a shop, the streets stop, so I make my own clothes. I don't have to go shopping anymore.

"I have shoes, jeans, golf clubs, table tennis (items). I have everything."
