Jackie Chan joined a group of Hollywood power players for a dinner party at Will Smith’s house in Los Angeles, . As soon as the meal was over, Chan stood up, grabbed his half-consumed glass of water and poured the rest onto a potted plant.
According to Forbes, Will Smith asked Chan what he was doing, but Chan’s reply got Smith praising him.
“What are you doing?” asked Smith, as Chan tells it.
The Rush Hour star explained that in Los Angeles, like in Beijing, people constantly waste water—even during shortages—so why not try to save some?
“Jackie,” said Smith after a brief pause, “from now on, my whole family wants to learn this.”
