These days, Jason Statham is known for being an action movie star with no hair and a thick English accent you could listen to for days. But 48-year-old Statham did not come out of the womb threatening to kick ass while dressed in a nice suit.

Well maybe he did, since there's no footage of his birth online. There is, however, footage of a young Statham participating in a competitive diving event.

Statham took part in the 1990 Commonwealth Games, where he didn't do so great, according to the commenters.

Thank goodness Statham is in this music video to distract from all the weirdness.

Such a shame.
