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.
