Jackie Chan among the many guests at the White House
Action film star Jackie Chan arrives at the White House for a state dinner 19, 2011 in Washington, DC. President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are hosting resident Hu Jintao for a state dinner during his visit to the United States.
Asked why he had brought a large camera, Jackie said, "I just want to take some pictures!" while making the motion of a camera with his hands.
The best-dressed man at the dinner, hands down, was martial arts movie mogul Jackie Chan, in a buttonless, open black jacket and high-collared white shirt with no tie. He carried a large camera to take groupie pix, and said he'd spent the morning hoping to hear some news about the American and Chinese film industries.
