2017 Oscars: Jackie Chan Wows Everyone With His Panda Date


Legendary martial arts actor Jackie Chan wowed everyone at the 2017 Oscars Awards on Sunday night after he appeared on the red carpet with two unorthodox dates.

Jackie Chan came to the 89th Annual Academy Awards with two stuffed pandas, complete with glittery Ugg-esque boots and UNICEF pins as his dates for the night.

He said he did it as a gesture of support for the famous Chinese animals.

“I’m the ambassador of [the] panda,” Chan told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet. “After an earthquake, they got hurt and I raise them. I have two pandas in China, my own. They go wherever I go.”

His pandas got to meet all the famous people that attended the 2017 Oscars which included Sylvester Stallone and Clinton.

Jackie also shared the best reunion of the night when he met with his Karate kid co-star Taraji P. Henson on the red carpet.

When it was time to appreciate winners during the show, Jackie shined brightly as actor Vince Vaughn acknowledged all the honorary Oscar Awards winners during the ceremony as they were all seated towards the back of the Dolby Theatre.

Jackie was pictured adorably sitting beside his stuffed animals next to him before he stood up to applaud the award.
