For all of the attention that Hollywood stars get, there are plenty of people in the movie business who don't get enough credit.

Our favorite blockbusters couldn't be made without writers, producers, and even stuntmen.

In an age where digital effects are everywhere, sometime you just need a highly trained double to get hit by a car or fall off a building.

Witherspoon says her stunt double makes her look "tough," but the really tough part was finding someone to match her small stature.

Where do you even find someone big enough to take The Rock's place? His own family, of course.

Ever since he starred in The Scorpion King, Johnson's cousin Tanoai Reed has done all of his stunts.

And the family resemblance is pretty strong.

These two look pretty close in a photo from the set of Titanic. I just hope Winslet's stuntwoman didn't have to float in the icy water for real.

Instead of digital effects, The Lord of the Rings used old fashioned trickery to make the wizard Gandalf look taller than his hobbit companions, which explains McKellen's giant double.

The pair bulked up together on the set of Thor, and stuntman Bobby Holland Hanton revealed the job was tougher than it looks.

"Thor is definitely the most difficult character that we have to get in shape for," he explained.

"Chris is already huge, he’s much bigger than me naturally so I have to train twice a day. It’s a job in itself."

27. Tom Hardy

Hardy's stuntman on the set of Max Max: Fury Road was a dead ringer for the eccentric star.
