The idea of people "doubling" famous actors is a tricky thing to get my head around. Either you would expect the stunt double to look exactly like the actor, but how is that even possible? Are you telling me there is another human who looks like the Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson?! Or it means that they are able to create an illusion of the same person with someone who looks so drastically different that it would blow your mind.

Turns out that it's both! Stunt doubles come in all shapes and sizes. Some nearly identical to the star they are doubling (lucky!). Then there are some, I'm looking at you number 13, that are so strikingly different it's shocking. There are gorgeous actresses with male stunt doubles and stunning A-listers with nearly identical stuntwomen. Any way you cut it, the world of stunt performers is remarkable.

First, lets take a look at the incredible stuntmen and women who look EXACTLY like the actors they are doubling.
