Top 10 Actors Who Do Their Own Stunts
Yes, some of the scenes in movies can be very painful, but someone has to do them, right?

While most actors have stunt doubles for a majority of their scenes, there are a select few Hollywood heavyweights who would rather let their own actions do the talking.

On Tuesday, Zac Efron put the stunt bar pretty high when he posted a photo on social media of himself catching a ride on the dorsal fin of a Tiger shark while he was "Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates in Hawaii" with co-star Adam Devine.

While Efron's stunt was certainly scary, he's hardly the first star to really get into the role. Everyone from Melissa McCarthy to Jackie Chan to Kristen Stewart are bracing big jumps and combat scenes to become Hollywood's daredevils.
