** Creator/DanielCraig and PierceBrosnan claim to have multiple scars from their stuntwork. Brosnan in fact busted his ankle during filming the pre-titles sequence for ''Film/DieAnotherDay'', requiring production to be shut down for a week while he had surgery.

Traditionally, female actors were often doubled by small male stunt artists, due to no woman with the required skills being available, or the stunts being considered "[[MenAreTheExpendableGender too dangerous]]" for a woman. This still happens but is increasingly controversial, as the increasing number of female professional stunt artists consider it to be sex discrimination.

Nowadays it's common for stunt doubles' faces to [[DigitalHeadSwap be replaced with the stars' faces in post production]]. An early example is ''Film/EventHorizon'': they didn't realise until they sat down to edit the film that Laurence Fishburne's stunt double's face was showing clearly for a couple of seconds in the finale (in his defense, ''he was on fire''). So, the star's face was crudely but effectively pasted over the double's. An earlier example of the same occurs in ''Franchise/JurassicPark''. This has opened the door to more flexible use of stuntmen.

* An episode of ''{{Blackadder}} the Third'' had Baldrick mention that his father [[PlayingATree played second codpiece]] in ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'', worn by Macbeth in the fight scenes. To this, Blackadder asks "So he was a stunt codpiece, then?"
