Five Actors That Look Indistinguishable From Their Stunt Doubles

Published

While many actors manage to do their own stunts, some of the more extreme scenes need some professional assistance. Stunt doubles have been keeping stars safe from potential harm for decades. In order to get the part, they have to look the part! These five actors look nearly identical to their accompanying stunt doubles.

Years Of Confusing Crew

For years, Reese Witherspoon has worked with stunt double Marilee Lessley. “She has been my double in 5 movies and now she is helping out on #BigLittleLies! Don’t we look alike?!.” Witherspoon said on Instagram. The two first worked together on 2005’s Just Like Heaven. In 2016, Witherspoon comforted Lessley following a divorce and death in the family. “She asked how she could help. Even told me I could go home paid,” Lessley said in an Instagram post.

A Pair Of Gingers

For the duration of the Harry Potter franchise, Anthony Knight has worked with Rupert Grint. While shooting, the two enjoyed hanging out off set, including hitting some karaoke spots. “For me the stunts are so cool, they’re one of my favourite things when we’re doing the film,” he told BBC back in 2002.

Ready To Hulk Up

For over 20 years, Anthony Molinari has performed stunts for numerous actors. In several films, he’s done work with Mark Ruffalo. His recent film with the star was 2016’s Now You See Me 2. Ruffalo isn’t the only Marvel person Molinari has replaced on set. He worked with Jeremy Renner in The Town and Tag.

The Warrior Stuntwoman

Zoe Bell was Lucy Lawless’ stunt double for the hit series Xena: Warrior Princess. Things were fine until she fractured her vertebrae on a stunt gone wrong. Instead of heading to the hospital, she continued working until another stunt broke her back. “That was a big learning point in my career for me. I was bummed that it took breaking my back to figure that one out,” she said in the Double Dare documentary.

Keeping It In The Family

For Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, he didn’t want anyone being his stunt double. He hired his own cousin Tanoai Reed for all of his movies. “DJ gives me credit more than any other actor gives his stunt man. He’s always been like, ‘When it comes to the gnarly stuff, things where I can get hurt, my cousin Tanoai does it all.’ I’ll be reading a random article about a movie and bang — my name’s in there. He’s that kind of guy,” Reed told Mel Magazine.
