but also Yao Ming. He just announced on the news that he's been unilaterally deaf since age of 8. He just didn't tell many people for 22 years.

I could not find very much about Jackie Chan being deaf. I did find this:

Deaflympics Taipei 2009 - Jackie Chan - Power in Me - YouTube

On the move: Jackie Chan - Times Online

This is an article I found on Yao Ming:

Yao admits to being partially deaf - NBA - Sporting News

Thank you for the link. Yao Ming was a great basketball player. Too bad he couldnt come back from foot injury he suffered in playoffs against the Lakers back in 2009. He missed the whole season in 2010. He is 7'6 and over 300lbs. Im gunna miss him and had no idea he's deaf in his left ear. Pretty cool!

EDIT: Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lou Ferrigno are hard of hearing.

Yao Ming, really? Well, it's not that uncommon for people to be partially deaf in one ear. For instance, Rob Lowe is deaf in one ear.
