Actor Jackie Chan is the first person to leave his prints twice to be placed at Hollywood Boulevard's Chinese Theatre here.

Chan first made his mark at the theatre's forecourt in 1997 alongside actress Marilyn Monroe and actor Clark Gable.  His first cement slab got lost when owners changed over, and the landmark became the TCL Chinese Theatre, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Recalling his debut at the location, he said: "The first time in the Chinese Theatre, I walked on the red carpet and I saw several stars giving interviews. At that time I had nothing to do. I just stood there and looked around. Those years I dreamed. Gradually, I got there."

His “Rush Hour” co-star Chris Tucker and “The Karate Kid” co-star Jaden Smith were there to cheer him as he left imprints of his hands, feet and nose on wet cement. The slab will join several other such slabs of celebrities' imprints.
