Celebs & Their Stunt Doubles

If you’re anything like us, you often find yourself struggling to catch tiny glimpses of stunt doubles’ faces in action movies. There’s no way Tom Cruise is capable of all those impossible missions in Mission: Impossible, right? Thanks to a post on good ol’ Reddit, we were recently graced with 17 fascinating photos of actors side-by-side with their stunt doubles. Some look exactly alike, while others — er, we’ll let you judge stuntman Will Arnett’s hairline and stuntwoman Jennifer Lopez’s gender for yourself.

1) Carrie Fisher & Sandi Gross, Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983)

2) Patrick Hancock, Tiffany Scott, Amy Poehler, & Will Arnett, Blades of Glory (2007)

3) Harrison Ford & Vic Armstrong, Indiana Jones

4) Emma Watson & stunt doubles, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (2010)

5) Gerard Butler & Ele Bardha, Machine Gun Preacher (2011)

6) Kate Winslet & stunt double, Titanic (1997)

8) Brad Pitt & Rick English, World War Z (2013)

9) Lynda Carter & Jeannie Epper, The New Adventures of Wonder Woman (1975-1979)

10) Regina King & stunt woman, Southland (2009)

11) Sarah Michelle Gellar & Sophia Crawford, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003)

14) Uma Thurman & Zoe Bell, Kill Bill (2003)

15) Isaac Hayes & stunt double, Truck Turner (1974)

16) Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Kimberly Shannon Murphy, & Casey O’Neill, Knight and Day (2010)

17) Kate Beckinsale & Alicia Vela-Bailey, Total Recall (2012)

18) Robert Pattinson & Paul Darnell, Twilight (2008)

19) Nicole Kidman & Alicia Vela-Bailey, Just Go With It (2011)

20) Bette Davis & Sally Sage, Now Voyager (1942)

21) Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Victor Paguia, Premium Rush (2012)

22) Angelina Jolie & Eunice Huthart, Salt (2010)

23) David Cassidy & stand in, The Partridge Family

24) January Jones & stand in, X-Men: First Class (2011)

25) Shirley Temple & Mary Lou Isleib, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1938)

26) Frank Sinatra & stand in, The Lady in Cement (1968)

27) Gene Tierney & stand in, Laura (1944)

28) Daniel Craig & stunt double, Skyfall (2012)

29) John Billingsley & stunt double, Star Trek

30) Jennifer Lopez & Daniel Arroyo

Is there an actor that does all of their own stunts? I can name Jackie Chan, Michelle Yeoh and Maggie Q off the top of my head. Oh, and the flawless Milla Jovovich does most of her stunts~

i like celebs who do their own stunts
regi_veggie 8th-Jul-2012 09:31 pm (UTC)
I don't think any celebs do all of their stunts besides you know harold lloyd.
tx5mym5 8th-Jul-2012 09:43 pm (UTC)
In Chinese and Hong Kong action movies made before the 2000s, the actors did all their own stunts. I think Jackie Chan has finally stopped doing that.
agdhani 9th-Jul-2012 12:16 am (UTC)
I've read somewhere that Christian Kane does all his fight scenes in Leverage...but I don't know about any other stunts.
actrisse 8th-Jul-2012 09:43 pm (UTC)
Most of the times it's not a matter of the celeb not wanting to do a stunt it's because the studio won't let them. If the celeb gets hurt then the movie is over and that's millions of dollars gone.
nicholasdee 8th-Jul-2012 09:46 pm (UTC)
doesn't exist

insurance won't allow it. whenever stars say they do their own stunts, they mean they are lifted in the air on a harness, kicking their legs around
mots_inutiles 9th-Jul-2012 12:33 am (UTC)
Simon Pegg did all his own stunts in Hot Fuzz except for the one where his character gets thrown into the picture on the wall, which insurance wouldn't allow. But he did all the other ones!

Came in to say an ONTD post with Now Voyager and Laura.
"Oh Jerry, don't let's ask for the moon. We have the stars."

cuzilubb 8th-Jul-2012 09:25 pm (UTC)

They look like Niki Hilton.
bettalaylow 8th-Jul-2012 10:21 pm (UTC)
I would like to see a picture without sunglasses because they literally look like identical twins

I still can't tell
kerrigwen 9th-Jul-2012 06:12 am (UTC)
One on the right is real!Kate.

Also, the double played Nicole Kidman's double, too. #weirdbutcool

I love this post.
tammyinlalaland 8th-Jul-2012 09:12 pm (UTC)
No actor does all his own stuns...Insurance coverage will not allow it. The ones you named, Colin Farrell, for one do a lot of their own stuns, most want to do more of them but the production's insurance coverage ban them

Edited at 2012-07-08 09:13 pm (UTC)
swim_thedepths 8th-Jul-2012 09:13 pm (UTC)
Oh boo. Well, I can still admire them for doing as much as they can. If only I were so athletic.
nicholasdee 8th-Jul-2012 09:49 pm (UTC)

and its hilarious because the actors that brag about doing their owns stunts are in this post (tom and angelina talk about it a lot)
polaroidmoment 8th-Jul-2012 10:20 pm (UTC)
Yeah, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz wouldn't shut up about in promo for Knight and Day either.
cy4nide 8th-Jul-2012 10:17 pm (UTC)
Jason Statham does his own ones. I always remember reading that he's well trained in his kickboxing and martial arts and a professional diver and he did almost all his stunts in Transporter.
crystalfairie 8th-Jul-2012 10:39 pm (UTC)
Jackie Chan is one of the very few who does all of his own stunts. It's a known fact that no insurance company will cover him because he won't let anyone else do his stunts.
volare 9th-Jul-2012 01:36 am (UTC)
Viggo Mortenson does an awful lot of his own stuff, to the point of getting teeth knocked out and breaking toes...
imatreekb 8th-Jul-2012 09:14 pm (UTC)
The J Lo one always cracks me up.
lathwen1 8th-Jul-2012 09:21 pm (UTC)
me too.

fwee_prower 8th-Jul-2012 09:14 pm (UTC)
Didn't Michelle Yeoh AND Maggie Q learn how to do their own stunts from Jackie Chan?
swim_thedepths 8th-Jul-2012 09:17 pm (UTC)
I know Maggie Q was in his school that specializes it. I'm not sure about Michelle, besides her working with Jackie. And her being an amazing ground breaking female martial artist~
marywebgirl 9th-Jul-2012 12:29 am (UTC)
How did he get into it? It just seems like the qualifications are "bad ass" and "high pain tolerance."
chris_chick 9th-Jul-2012 01:08 am (UTC)
LOL truth
lulu_quality 8th-Jul-2012 09:14 pm (UTC)
I looked at the Kate Winslet photo for a good minute and thought, "WOW! They look EXACTLY alike!" and then realized I was looking at Kate Winslet, not the stunt double.

Can this turn into a celebrity double post please?
swim_thedepths 8th-Jul-2012 09:17 pm (UTC)
lol, I almost did something like that but I didn't want people to nitpick, tbh. It's easier with a stunt double.
lathwen1 8th-Jul-2012 09:22 pm (UTC)
enjoyyourbunny 8th-Jul-2012 09:15 pm (UTC)
lol at Ringo having a stunt double.

hellb 9th-Jul-2012 12:16 am (UTC)
Why is her double a man?? Everyone else's doubles are the same sex??
cruel11 9th-Jul-2012 12:50 am (UTC)
Lol mte.
dedradawn 9th-Jul-2012 02:44 am (UTC)
Looks like David Cassidy's was a woman.
scaredsquee 9th-Jul-2012 03:20 am (UTC)
i think in one of (or both) of the tomb raiders some of angie's stunt doubles were men. i am recalling a dude on a jet ski in a bikini. wish i could find the photos :c
