As per the Hollywood Reporter, Li had come out in 2013 to be afflicted with hyperthyroidism, and it's been said that he was told by the doctors to stop doing action movies because of the strain on his body. For now, Li has been more focused on doing charity work, even starting The One Foundation back in 2007.

Some people actually have come in defense of Lee to say that the actor is healthier than he look in the photo. Fangoria's Phile Nobile Jr. for example, had this to say about Li's condition:
