Jackie Chan admits using doubles


HONG KONG: Renowned for performing his own daredevil stunts, and breaking many bones in the process, Hong Kong’s action movie star Jackie Chan has started using body doubles – but only when he has to. 

“I will use stunt doubles if you ask me to ride an F-16 jet fighter, or to jump over a series of hurdles with a crazy horse, or to perform two 720-degree somersaults,” Chan said yesterday.
