Videos: 10 Actors Who Refused Stunt Doubles!

This is a new video from Screen Rant that lists 10 refused stunt doubles. A stunt crew is there so the actor can sit back and let someone else do those ridiculous action sequences that involve fist fights, explosions, driving fast vehicles, and so much more. Some actors prefer to do their own stunts, opting for true authenticity over safety. This list doesn't mention any of the badass foreign actors that do their own stunts, such as Jackie Chan, Iko Uwais, Tony Jaa, and many more. It also omits Scott Adkins, selecting big name English actors. Check out the video below.

"Stunt work is one of the hardest aspects of doing a film. It requires months of preparation and often puts lives in some kind of danger as movies attempt to one up each other in terms of craziest action scene ever. While there are plenty of brave and talented stunt doubles out there to replace the lead actors when it gets too messy, some A list hollywood actors are having none of that and decided that the only way to sell the shot is for them to be in the stunt themselves. From Kristen Stewart learning to ride a horse for the first time to Henry Cavill getting SCUBA certified in order to do DC’s Man of Steel, these actors have gone above and beyond. Sometimes, it’s the actors we least expect to make an impression are the ones who end up surprising us the most, as is the case with Colin Firth in the Kingsman movies. Stay tuned for more of him later this year when the Golden Circle hits cinemas. Of course, there’s the craziness of Tom Cruise and the stunts he does for Mission Impossible, but don’t forget his Knight and Day co-star Cameron Diaz! Fate of the Furious was just another excuse to see Jason Statham kick all kinds of butt, which he does so well. So strap in and enjoy the video!"
