Jackie Chan wants to set the record straight: Contrary to Internet rumors, he is, in fact, not dead.

“Jackie is alive and well,” reads a note on the action star’s Facebook page. “He did not suffer a heart attack and die, as was reported on many social networking sites and in online news reports.”

Chan, 56, is working hard, however, continues the missive: “Jackie is fine and is busy preparing for the filming of his next movie.”

Still not convinced? For those who require proof, Chan posted a photo of himself dated March 29 on his Web site showing him meeting with top Japanese officials.
