Jackie Chan’s pandas
If you noticed Jackie Chan walking the red carpet with two stuffed pandas, there was a good reason for those. He told Ryan Seacrest before the awards,
I’m the ambassador of [the] panda. After earthquake, they get hurt and I raise them. I have two pandas in China, my own. They go wherever I go. They meet all the famous people.
Chan has been taking the bears, one of whom is sporting a UNICEF pin, around the world with him, and plans to auction them off for charity.
