* Creator/HarrisonFord didn't do all of his stunts in the ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' films, but tried to do as many as possible. It got to the point where they were concerned about him doing some too risky stunts that his stunt man (and good friend Vic Armstrong) had to tell him to let him do some stunts, otherwise he'd be out of a job. Ford also has one of the few stuntmen [[http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2011/05/07/article-0-0BE344D200000578-938_634x486.jpg look a lot like him]] and would also be used as a stand in during ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom'' when Harrison Ford was in the hospital.

* HaroldLloyd, even when he lost some of his fingers (which wasn't even in a stunt sequence - he was doing a publicity shoot and a practical CartoonBomb was accidentally handed to him to pose with instead of a fake one).

Added DiffLines:

* Emil Sitka was a valued member of Columbia's short subject department stock players (who supported Film/TheThreeStooges, Andy Clyde, and others) not only because of his acting ability, but because of his willingness to perform his own stunts, which was a valuable skill in the shorts' fast-paced, slapstick style of comedy (the fact that the department saved money on not having a hire a stunt double didn't hurt, either).

* Creator/SteveMcQueenActor did his own stunt driving in ''Film/TheGreatEscape'', ''Film/{{Bullitt}}'' and ''Film/TheThomasCrownAffair''. In the case of ''Bullitt'', he made a habit of putting his head near the window so the audience would see that it was really him and not a stunt driver.

* Creator/VincentCassel, a famous {{capoeira}} and wing chung practitioner, did the fight scene of ''Film/TheCrimsonRivers'' by himself along with his trainer and gym pals, who played the bad guys. Unlike your typical Hollywood fight choreography, they actually played it full contact, resulting in Cassel being hurt in the face and his trainer getting a broken nose.

* ''Creator/ChloeGraceMoretz'' did most of her own stunts for ''Film/KickAss''. It should be noted that one of her trainers for the film was Jackie Chan.
