We all know that Hollywood stars use a body double if there are some stunt scenes involved. Though there are some who buck the trend, such as Tom Cruise and Jackie Chan, who apparently prefer doing the action scenes themselves.
However, these body doubles have their own problems. The body double of Chris Hemsworth, for instance, has said he is struggling to keep up with the Thor actor’s size.
Hemsworth has undergone his biggest transformation yet to play the God of Thunder in Marvel sequel Thor: Love and Thunder, which is currently filming in Australia.

But, this time around, Bobby Holland Hanton is finding it harder than ever as Hemsworth is "the biggest Thor he's ever been".
Appearing on Nova's Fitzy & Wippa, a morning radio show in Australia, he said: “Everyone is like, ‘Wow, look at the size and him’, but I text him like, ‘Thanks very much dude, you've just made this even harder!"'
Holland Hanton, who has been Hemsworth’s body double since Thor: The Dark World in 2013, has had to increase his calorie intake so he can gain enough muscle, according to the Independent.
This means he has to eat “seven meals a day at just the right time” in order to attain the same physique as Hemsworth, something he describes as a “chore”.
“It’s full-on,” the body double admitted, adding: “I don’t enjoy eating at all.”
Despite this, he says he’s prepared to tackle the “challenge” head on.
"I have to be the biggest I’ve ever been,” Holland Hanton said, describing Hemsworth as "a man mountain".
Last week, Hemsworth was pictured on set of the new Taika Waititi film alongside Chris Pratt, who is just one of the many Guardians of the Galaxy characters set to appear.
"I’ve been called [n-word] to my face probably five or six times. And fortunately for my psyche, I’ve never been called [n-word] by a smart person,” the actor said.
Hollywood superstar and former wrestling champion Dwayne Johnson flaunted his physical strength off screen by ripping the gate off with his bare hands because he did not want to be late to work.
George Clooney says he is not planning a career in politics, adding that he just wants to use his fame in contributing to social causes close to his heart.
The actor reprised his role as the feared assassin for the fourth installment in the hit franchise and he made sure all of the stunt workers on the movie felt appreciated.
SRK and Deepika were seen sharing screen space in this year's blockbuster 'Pathaan', which also stars John Abraham, Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana.
The ‘Havana’ singer travelled last week to Spain to celebrate and help promote Rodriguez's book, which tells the story of a woman who separates from her husband after many years of marriage.
