When a famous face becomes absent from the public eye, it can be hard to identify them when they surface again in an unfamiliar setting.

For every year that a celebrity avoids the limelight, they become less and less recognizable to the masses. As a result, they quickly blend back into the normality of society, where the only person to recognize them is a super fan who happens to stumble into their secret space.

Be it a former reality star who was only blessed with 15 minutes of fame or an A-lister who fell from grace, there will always be someone to recognize you.

That has certainly been the case for the martial art superstar Jet Li, who has been relatively absent from the spotlight in recent years.

The 55-year-old Chinese-national was well-loved in the ’90s and ’00s, when he starred in cult classic Hollywood hits such as Lethal Weapon 4, The Forbidden Kindgom, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor and The Expendables.

Starring in numerous blockbuster bangers alongside his friend and fellow martial arts icon, Jackie Chan, Li became a household name synonymous with kick-ass action.
