Jason Statham was born in London in 1972. This former swimmer of the English Olympic team knew how to take advantage of his physique. Before becoming an actor, he earned his living by posing in fashion magazines.

It was during a walk in the streets of London that he was noticed by Guy Ritchie, who was looking for new faces to shoot in his film Scams, Crime and Botany (1998). Two years later, Jason turns in Snatch (another success of Guy Ritchie), then interprets the role of Frank Martin in The Transporter (2002), a film that will make him an actor recognized by the profession. Then followed a series of feature films (Revolver, The Pink Panther, Heist…) in which Jason Statham had more or less success.

On the private side, Jason Statham got engaged in early January 2016 with the supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, his companion since 2010. On February 9, 2017, she announced on Instagram that she was pregnant. On June 24, 2017, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley gives birth to a baby boy named Jack Oscar.
