Body Doubles In Movie Filming (Acting) by tpiatabernacles: 2:56am On Jan 07, 2015
A body double is a person who works in the movie or television production industry. Body doubles are models that act in scenes that actors or actresses do not want to do. For example, body doubles sometimes act in love scenes or scenes of nudity, where a person's body is shown.

Body doubles are usually models that have developed very good bodies by exercising and by eating well. Often, movies or television shows that use body doubles do not admit that a body double model was used.

In the popular American movie Pretty Woman, a fashion and parts model . . . posed for the infamous movie poster in thigh-high boots, while another body double . . . filmed n.ude scenes that actress Julia Roberts did not want to do.

The reason I opened this thread is to highlight this issue, since it seems most nairalanders are unaware of the term, or the fact that body doubles are quite common ( or sometimes required) in movie production.

The matter of blackmailing people based on a p.orn movie you thought you saw them in, is a different thing entirely and I do not wish it to be brought up in this thread.

Btw, I am willing to explain further in simpler english ( no sarcasm intended), if necessary.

Better in the movies section if you ask me. Nice thread nonetheless.

Stunt doubles are common knowledge. Most of those crazy stunts we see are done by them and not the actors save guys like Jackie Chan of the good old days. I hear Jason Statham does some of those his wicked stunt moves too.
