When watching a big blockbuster movie, or enjoying a TV show, we often praise our favorite actors and actresses. We believe that they’re so amazing and so talented, that if it wasn’t for them, the show just wouldn’t be as good. We truly believe that it’s our favorite actors who carry the show and do all the hard work. However, a lot of the time it’s just wishful thinking on our part. There’s hundreds, if not thousands of people who all work together to make a movie great, they include all the writers, directors, producers, costume designers, set designers, hair and makeup artists and most notably stunt doubles and body doubles. Why are those most notable you ask? Because that’s who we’re going to be taking a look at today.
Body doubles are most often used for fight scenes, sex scenes and stand-ins while the cameras and lighting are being set up. Sometimes they look a lot like the actors, other times all that matters is that their body proportions are the same. But let me tell you, seeing the big stars and their body doubles side by side will make you do a double take.
1. Taylor Lautner and his gorgeous stunt double. Honestly ladies, I’m not sure which one of them looks better.
2. Tom Hardy and Jacob Tomuri, his stunt double. Double the hotness.
3. Brad Pitt has a body double that might look like him from the back, but you’d never confuse the two when seen face to face.
4. Lynda Carter and double Jeannie Epper. Everyone needs some help, even Wonder Woman.
5. Gwendoline Christie and Rory McCann and their stunt doubles on the set of Game of Thrones. You can hardly tell them apart, right?
6. Carrie Fisher and Tracey Eddon. Princess Leia and her stunt double – working hard or hardly working?
7. Margot Robbie in her Harley Quinn outfit and Ingrid Kleinig, her stunt double on the set of Suicide Squad. Now don’t you wish you could be the one standing between them?
8. Chris Pratt and his body double Tony McFarr. If you’re sad about the fact that Chris Pratt is married you might be happy to know that he’s got a stunt double. Perhaps you could try your luck with him?
9. Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Molinary. These two look like they could be brothers. Very handsome and charming brothers.
10. Kate Winslet and Sarah Franzl. Did you even know Kate Winslet had a body double in Titanic? Makes you wonder who did Leo draw as one of his French girls, Kate or Sarah.
11. Alyson Hannigan had 3 body doubles in an episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Two vampy faced ones and one human looking. Who’s up for some evil Willow overdose?
12. Emma Watson also had not one but three body double on the set of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
13. Chandler Riggs and his stunt double Jessica Merideth on the set of Walking Dead. Yup, his stunt double was a girl, how weird is that?
14. Chris Hemsworth and his stunt double on the set of Thor. That’s right, even gods have stunt doubles.
15. Megan Fox and her stunt double on the set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Cause riding a bike in heels is hard. Lol, just kidding.
