You will find them in every movie, yet we never really see them. The body doubles make a living by being more badass than their celebrity counterpart, yet they don't get much credit. Their faces aren't supposed to be seen - but sometimes they are! Here's five times we accidentally got a glimpse of a body double in a movie or TV show.

1. Terminator 2

This clearly isn't Arnold Schwarzenegger and Edward Furlong, and the guy to the left looks more like Jean Claude Van Damme if anything. Perhaps it is him?

2. The Mummy Returns

I know Brendan Fraser's face has changed a lot, but there's no way that is him. I'm surprised as to why they needed a body-double for a cuddle though.

3. Twilight

Is it just me or did Kristen Stewart's body double smile more in this scene than Kristen did through-out the entire franchise?

4. Star Trek

Are you saying Sir Patrick Stewart didn't do all the stunts himself? Well I'm disappointed.

5. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Does this mean Sarah Michelle Gellar isn't incredibly flexible with amazing martial art skills? My whole life has been a lie!

Jokes aside, it's very understandable that actors use body doubles when filming these scenes, and it must be impossibly difficult to edit a movie without any unwanted body double faces sneaking their way onto the big screen. They work hard, so they kind of deserve it to be fair. Let's all give a big round of applause to the men and women out there that make our favorite movies more action-filled.
