Là anh em thân thiết, Statham cũng hiểu rõ nguyên nhân dẫn đến bệnh tật của Lý Liên Kiệt.
Anh cho biết: “Lý Liên Kiệt đã dành cả sự nghiệp của mình cho điện ảnh. Tình trạng mà anh gặp phải hiện nay một phần nguyên nhân là những pha hành động rất máu lửa trong quá khứ. Những người đi sau như chúng tôi luôn khâm phục và học hỏi những gì mà anh đã cống hiến cho võ thuật”.
Nam diễn viên Hollywood cũng chia sẻ về thái độ làm việc của đàn anh và những khó khăn của các diễn viên hành động hiện nay: “Nếu bạn quá phụ thuộc vào người đóng thế, kỹ xảo, tên tuổi sẽ bị ảnh hưởng. Nếu ở Hollywood bạn sẽ bị đào thải nếu như qua mặt khán giả.
Những tượng đài như Lý Tiểu Long, Lý Liên Kiệt, Thành Long có được vị trí trong lòng khán giả như hôm nay cũng là nhờ diễn xuất chân thật của họ trong mỗi tác phẩm”.
