While Tom Cruise is famous for doing all of his own stunts – which have seen him in the hospital a few times – other actors take a different approach.
Take close look at this muscly man surrounded by flames, who do you think it is?
It turns out there’s a whole host of blockbuster faces that have a double doing the dirty work.

This double played a real blinder in 2015 when he doubled for Tom Hardy – not to mention, he’s easy on the eye.

Proving he’s a hardy man after all.
