9 Amazing and unbelievable stars stunt feats!
Celebrities, especially from action movies, get big payments for their roles. That's why they often want to prove and show to viewers that they deserve to be called "tough guys". Sometimes with very strong opposition from insurers and producers and to their despair even, some film stars perform stunts scenes individually. They expose their health and life to danger, just to be authentic.
We going to show you 9 superstars who did extremely dangerous shots by themselves. Do you feel this thrill of emotion?
1. Jackie Chan
As a true master of martial arts, the actor never uses the help of stuntmen. From the beginning of his career, he has been performing all sequences of fights and dangerous scenes by himself. He started out as Bruce Lee's stuntman in "The Entrance of the Dragon"! He was once listed in the Guinness Book of Records for doing the greatest number of stunt settings. How much he is engaged in those kinds of scenes, we can see at the end of each film with his participation. He shows the shots that did not go well or ended up with injuries. Although they are often funny you see that they are painful too.

2. Tom Cruise
Probably the most courageous actor of modern cinema. He loves technological and scientific novelties and invents how to use them in films. For Tom, there is no impossible scene. To be able to jog on the Burj Khalifa glass wall in the fourth part of "Mission: Impossible" series he fired the insurer, who insisted on using the double. In another movie about the agent Hunt, he flew hanging by the door of a plane. Recently Tom Cruise surprised the world by making scenes on the plane for "Mummy". Producers proposed to take them in the studio, but the star insisted that zero gravity is needed to make the audience feel it. The shot was repeated 64 times.
3. Daniel Craig
His name is Bond. James Bond. Playing the iconic character Daniel Craig puts on realism. Along with the creators, he thinks that people do not want to watch computer-generated scenes. Maybe that is why in the first movie as agent 007 actor lost two teeth. In the movie "Skyfall", the actor himself performed a dangerous battle scene on the roof of the speeding train. The roof was narrow and it was easy to fall out of it, so the actors were only secured by a thin metal band. Breathtaking shot, isn't it?

We recently watched his preparations for the role and then its results in full action and dangerous shots movie called "John Wick" and the second part of it "John Wick: Chapter Two".
5. Matt Damon
Being one of the most dangerous characters in action movies obliges. Matt Damon playing Jason Bourne personally performed many dangerous stunts. He jumped from the bridge, took part in car chases and crashes, swam under the water without an oxygen mask, and fought mercilessly. But it looks sensationally, doesn't it?

8. Jason Statham
Statham is an incredibly athletic actor. Before he started his career in Hollywood, he trained football, gymnastics, martial arts, swimming, and diving. He represented England at the 1992 World Cup in jumping into the water. Therefore, from the very beginning, he performs all sequences of fighting and stunts by himself. Recently, we can see him in the movie "Fast and the Furious 8", but still the most commented scene is the one from the "The Expendables 3". While making it the actor ran a truck that had a brake failure, so he came into the water with it. The whole team thought that he drowned, but fortunately, nothing worse happened.
9. Viggo Mortensen
Viggo Mortensen may not be associated with the action movie, but certainly with the fact that he is very much into the characters he plays. There is a well-known story that he completed the scene in "The Lord of the Rings" despite his leg injury. He himself also performed all the dangerous scenes, including the difficult horse riding in "Hidalgo". At the end of working on the film "Prison", where he was not using the help of stunts, he got a T-shirt as a gift saying "Stunt Crew".
