Bruce Lee was born on November 21, 1940, and though we all know he’s not with us anymore, yet we wish the youth icon a very happy birthday.
He is recognized for attempting to shape how Asians were portrayed in American movies and encouraging Hong Kong martial filmmaking. On July 20, 1973, Lee passed away at the age of 32. Following his passing, Bruce Lee has managed to have a significant impact on today’s mainstream culture, encompassing movies, tv programs, graphic novels, cartoons, and computer games, in addition to competitive sports like judo, kickboxing, mixed martial arts, and fighting. Lee was ranked among the top 100 historical figures by Time magazine.
