Jason Statham is awesome! Whether you’re a fan of his movies or not, it’s hard to deny just how full-on this dude is. And we totally respect that. Especially since his love of adventure carries over into his world travels.
The Fast and the Furious and The Meg star has been spotted traveling around the world with his gorgeous supermodel wife and baby-mama Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. But instead of just laying by the beach or going to a fancy restaurant, both Jason and Rosie have enjoyed some daredevil-esque experiences that aren’t for the faint of heart.
Much like his co-star Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson, Jason Statham thrives off of pushing himself to the limit. At the very least, he’s a magnet for cool experiences. Without further ado, here are 15 of the craziest things Jason Statham has done on vacation.
15THEY MAY NOT HAVE BEEN THE MEG, BUT JASON DIVED WITH HUNGRY BULL SHARKS IN FIJI
In order to prepare for The Meg, Jason Statham jumped in the water with a bunch of hungry Bull sharks. According to Hollywood, Jason joined a couple of professional scuba divers in the warm waters of Fiji to see these remarkable creatures feed. While he was safe, Bull sharks are known as being one of the most aggressive species of shark, making this pretty crazy.
14THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS WAS A LOT SCARIER ON THE ICY ROADS OF KITZBUEHEL, AUSTRIA
There’s no doubt that Jason Statham is a good driver. So, it makes sense that Audi Hahnenkamm would invite him to test-drive the Audi R8 V10 Plus in Kitzbuehel, Austria. According to his social media, they wouldn’t let him drive it on the ice, but he did take the sports car out into heavy snow and absolutely floored it.
13ALSO IN AUSTRIA, JASON ALMOST BECAME A PROFESSIONAL SKIER… OR MULCH… DEPENDS HOW GOOD HE IS AT FRENCH FRIES AND PIZZA
While he attended the Audi Hahnenkamm event in Kitzbuehel, Austria, Jason Statham was given the opportunity to stand where only Olympic Athletes dare to stand… The top of the Streif Downhill Ski Track. According to his social media, Jason posed it up while in the start’s block, a place where very few people have been able to stand before.
12A HELICOPTER RIDE ABOVE THE INCREDIBLY REMOTE MILFORD SOUND, NEW ZEALAND
According to his social media, Jason Statham took the helicopter ride of a lifetime. In October 2016, he boarded the aircraft and flew over the picturesque Milford Sound located in the southwest of New Zealand’s South Island. The remote region is absurdly beautiful and was even used as a filming location in The Lord of the Rings movies.
11DIVING OFF A MASSIVE LUXURY YACHT IN ST. BARTS
According to CelebsOnYachts, macho-man Jason Statham erased any notion of him being afraid of heights when he dived off a massive yacht near the Carribean island of St. Barts. While he used to be a competitive diver, this jump was not for the faint of heart as he took it from the top deck.
10SPEEDY JET-SKIING AROUND THE ISLAND OF CAPRI, ITALY
Jason did not hold back when he got on a jet ski near the Italian island of Capri. According to Just Jared, he absolutely floored it! But this is exactly what we’d expect from Jason. Although, he was enjoying an activity that isn’t uncommon in the area. Many visit the resort island of Capri to enjoy various watersports…
9THAT TIME HE RANDOMLY SHOWED UP TO DO SOME BOULDERING IN THE HEART OF KENTUCKY
Rock climbers in the Knobs Forest in the interior of the state of Kentucky, were thrilled and delighted when Jason Statham randomly showed up. According to Mountain Project, Jason smashed some boulders with a few experienced climbers. These large sandstone boulders are nestled into a forested slope in a remote area not too far from Louisville.
8HURLING HIMSELF OFF THE ROCKS IN CANNES, FRANCE
Hurling oneself off rocks into the ocean may not be that crazy, but these were some pretty high rocks. According to Just Jared, Jason Statham did this in Cannes, France. He was joined by friends who found this spot between the Martinez Eden-Roc and Martinez hotels. Jason was there to promote his film, The Bank Job.
7DANCE FIGHTING ON THE BEACHES OF THAILAND
According to Just Jared, Jason and his hot wife, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, had an extravagant vacation in Thailand. While we were mostly concerned with the onslaught of shirtless and bikini photos of the two of them on the beach, there’s more. These hilarious photos depicted a hilariously strange dance-fighting exercise he did on the beach.
6A LITTLE PDA WITH A SUPERMODEL WHILE SKIING IN THE FRENCH ALPS
Jason Statham is married to a woman that most men would do just about anything for. Rosie Huntington Whiteley is an absolute goddess who has given Jason the joy of his life, his son. So, it makes sense that he’d be so affectionate with her. According to Just Jared, their PDA was captured while they were having a “private moment” on a ski lift in the French Alps.
5TAKING PDA TO THE NEXT LEVEL IN MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA
While Jason Statham has been photographed publically showing his affection for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on numerous occasions, there’s probably no more colorful moment as this one. While we can’t show you the exact photos, you can use your imagination. According to Just Jared, Rosie and Jason got very handsy at a public beach, which is kinda crazy.
4JASON WAS ALL ABOUT THAT PRIVATE JET LIFE IN KAUAI AND FRENCH POLYNESIA
While some celebrities hide the fact they fly private, Jason and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley aren’t so shy. According to People, Jason hired a lavish private jet to fly them from Los Angeles to the Hawaiian Island of Kauai. There they boarded a helicopter that took them around the stunning cliffs of the Na Pali Coast. From there, they flew private to French Polynesia.
3FROM MASSIVE STADIUMS TO SELFIES WITH THE GIRLS IN CHINA
In August 2018, Jason Statham spent a little time in China doing press for The Meg. According to his social media, he got a backstage tour of the massive National Stadium in Beijing which was entirely empty. Jason also got up close and personal with a ton of his fans, mostly girls, on the red carpet in Guangzhou, China while promoting Hobbs and Shaw.
2JASON HAD TEA FOR TWO IN NEW YORK CITY… YEAH, NOT VERY JASON STATHAM, IS IT? THAT’S PRETTY CRAZY
While Jason is seen as the hardcore action hero, he secretly has a sensitive side. Although, the more we think about it, the less surprising it is. After all, he’s maintained a lengthy relationship with Rosie Huntington Whiteley. According to Just Jared, the two of them were spotted having some tea and lunch at New York’s Tea & Sympathy in the West Village.
1SPEAKING OF NOT VERY JASON STATHAM… HE ALSO THREW A VERY GIRLY 30TH BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR ROSIE IN MALIBU
Jason drove his gorgeous wife up to Malibu, California to bring her to a surprise 30th birthday party, according to Just Jared. Jason put aside his hyper-masculine image to sip tea, juice, and eat a very colorful birthday cake with his beloved wife and Behati Prinsloo, the Victoria’s Secret model who is married to Adam Levine. While this wasn’t on-brand, he seemed to have a blast.
