A friend of Jet Li, Rob Cohen, applauded Li's devotion in acting and said Chinese actors are becoming more and more international.
"We have a total of 2,200 people working here and only 180 are non-Chinese. All my Chinese staff has high professional ethics," Rob Cohen told reporters.
"I have done a lot of background information study on China and I think it is a great country," he noted.
With part of its settings in Xian in northwest China's Shaanxi province, The Mummy 3 has drawn great public attention as it not only involves renowned Chinese actors but also the Chinese culture.
