Jason Statham is an English actor. Until his debut in Guy Ritchie’s Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998), Statham worked as a model before being introduced to the director. Both would work together again in Jason’s second movie, Snatch (2000). Their collaboration started his career in features films, allowing him then to work in the action roles that would get him most recognition, including a character in Furious Seven (2015) and the following Fast 8 (2017).
Statham seems to be non-religious, although certain sources classify him as a a Protestant Christian. But considering how little the actor speaks about his beliefs, this might be only a lucky guess based on him being born and raised in a small town in England.
He’s a very physically active person, doing nearly all his own stunts in *The Transporter* (2002). Prior to the movie he already had advanced knowledge in martial arts and is an expert in Kickboxing/Jujitsu. For 12 years he was part of the British national diving team, being ranked as the 12th best platform diver in the world.
The actor hasn’t mentioned his political leanings at all, which may indicate him being non-political.
Jason has dated model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley since 2010 and they’ve been engaged since January 10th 2016. Before, the Jason had a relationship with another model, Kelly Brook, but that ended in the mid-2000’s.
Jason Statham’s age is incorrect in a number of websites, including Wikipedia and IMDb. This is possibly to the fact his article in Wikipedia is locked, therefore a regular user can’t correct the mistake, and a lot of sources check Wikipedia first. His actual year of birth (1972) has been confirmed by the actor himself in a number of interviews, including one to the New York Times.
