18+ Impressive Stunt Doubles Who Have Us Taking A Second Look

Elizabeth Spina 16 Oct 2020

For all the insanely athletic looking fight scenes, sword handling, impressive leaping, and train hopping, actors and actresses call upon stunt doubles to handle their dirty work.

So for all the times you were watching a movie and thought to yourself, "wow! I had no idea Halle Berry was so good at parkour!" You were probably watching her stunt double.

1. Actors are very talented people, don't get me wrong. But they can't do it all!

Action films are usually filled with scenes that, if attempted by a non-professional, could be very dangerous and surely, they don't want a lawsuit on their hands.

That's where stunt doubles come in.

The more Mark Wahlberg look-a-likes there are in the world, the better place the world will be. That's my philosophy.

3. Reese Witherspoon and Marilee Lessley in "Big Little Lies."

They hit it right on the head with this one! These two could totally pass for each other. If I didn't know any better, I'd say these two are related.

4. Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Molinari in "Now You See Me."

There is actually an uncanny resemblance between these two.

Maybe it's the rugged, unshaved, messy grey hair look that they both have? Definitely a great match!

“Movie #5 with this legend – Rich Cetrone. Grateful to work with such incredible people. #stuntdouble,” Ben wrote on Instagram.

6. Gerard Butler and Scott Hunter in "Den of Thieves."

Okay, so they don't really look anything alike besides both being brunette, unshaved, and about the same height.

But from the back, I'm sure no one could tell them apart.

7. Charlize Theron and Monique Ganderton in "Atomic Blonde."

Putting aside the fact that Monique made the perfect stunt double for Charlize, I am loving their outfits. Off topic, I know. But they are seriously serving looks!

8. Andrew Garfield and William Spencer in "Spider-Man."

I actually had to take a second look at this photo to confirm it was two different people. I really thought I was seeing double!

9. Sebastian Stan and James Young in "Captain America."

The fact that he's covering half of his face definitely helps them look more alike. But nonetheless, a very accurate double!

10. Rihanna and Angela Meryl in "Battleship."

Not only is Rihanna one of the greatest artists of this decade (don't @ me), but it looks like she has some acting talent hidden up her sleeve as well!

Is there anything she can't do?

...Besides stunts?

11. Beyoncé and Angela Meryl in a Pepsi commercial

The same person that played Rihanna's stunt double, also played Beyoncé's stunt double.

Small world, you might say!

12. Halle Berry and Anisha Tee Gibbs in "John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum".

Instagram | @neeshnation

Height difference aside, Anisha makes the perfect Halle Berry stunt double.

I've seen Parabellum, and I didn't notice them swapping bodies between scenes at all!

13. Gal Gadot and Alicia Vela-Bailey in "Wonder Woman."

She has to be a pretty incredible stuntwoman if she played_Wonder Woman_.

Hat's off to Alicia! She absolutely killed it.

14. Kate Beckinsale and Alicia Vela-Bailey in "Underworld: Awakening."

Instagram | @aliciavelabailey

Funny enough, this is the same stuntwoman that played Gal Gadot's stunt double in Wonder Woman.

Her resumé is probably very impressive.

15. Evangeline Lilly and Ingrid Kleinig in "Ant-Man."

If I didn't know any better, I would say I am looking at two of the exact same person, or twins!

16. Michael Douglas and Michael Runyard in "Ant-Man."

This actually creeped me out a little bit. They look scarily similar. I can't even tell who is who!

Help!

17. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Ryan Tarran in "Gods of Egypt."

Instagram | @ryantarran

The only critique that I have, is that they aren't wearing the same color eyepatch, which could be easily noticed by the trained eye!

But other than that, these two are basically twins.

18. Mike Tyson and Khalid Ghajji in "Kickboxer: Retaliation".

Instagram | @khalidghajji

I'm kinda surprised that Mike Tyson — the boxer — the reigning, undisputed world heavyweight champion of 20 years, would need a stunt double.

19. Michelle Rodriguez and Ror Tio in "Resident Evil".

Alright, these two don't really look anything alike. But I'm sure from behind, none of us would be able to tell the difference.

20. "Guardians Of The Galaxy" stunt doubles.

Instagram | @jamesgunn

If I'm being honest...

This looks like the Mötley Crüe version of the Guardians Of The Galaxy cast.

They really just look like they're dressed up for Halloween.

21. Zoe Saldana and two of her stunt doubles in "Guardians of the Galaxy."

Instagram | @jamesgunn

Apparently Zoe Saldana needed not one, but two stunt doubles!

I'm guessing there are a lot of stunts in this movie.

22. Nathalie Emmanuel and Jesse Ellis in "The Fate of the Furious".

Instagram | @jazzyellis

For a second, I really could not tell which one was Nathalie.

This one was definitely an excellent choice of stuntwoman!

23. Jennifer Lopez and her male stunt double in her action-packed music video for "Follow the Leader".

I am shooketh.

I need to know what the backstory was behind this! How did J-Lo end up with a male stunt double, and how did no one notice?

24. Chris Hemsworth and Bobby Hanton in "Thor: Ragnarok".

First of all... yum, and I'm not talking about the sandwiches.

Not sure how anybody got any work done around these two, if ya know what I mean!
