British actor Jason Statham has been involved in a lot of action movies over the years, which have a lot of physical and demanding scenes. Most of these scenes are filmed using a stuntman, rather than the actual actor, and Jason says that he does not feel that these stuntmen get the credit they deserve.
During a recent chat with Vanity Fair, Statham praised, "All of the stuntmen - these are the unsung heroes. Nobody is giving them any credibility. They're risking their necks. And then you've got poncy actors pretending like they're doing [the stunts]."
He added, "For me, it's a total injustice. [Stunt actors are] the ones getting busy. Then you have some guy standing in front of a f***ing green screen screwing his face up pretending like he's doing the stunt. To me, it's like a farce. I have a real frustration with that because I know these coordinators. I train with them all the time and they are incredibly talented."
Jason Statham recently wrapped up shooting his scenes for the movie The Expendables 3, which opens on August 15, 2014 in both the US and the UK, while he is now shooting for the film Fast and Furious 7, which opens on July 11, 2014 in the US and July 25, 2014 in the UK.
