HONG KONG: Renowned for performing his own daredevil stunts, and breaking many bones in the process, Hong Kongs 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.
But one somersault, Ill do it myself, said the 48-year-old Chan.
I will do what I could do and I wont do anything that is out of my capability.
Chan was responding to an inquiry about a recent story in the South China Morning Post newspaper that said Chan used at least seven stunt doubles in his recent film, The Tuxedo. AP
