Two Hong Kong movie myths that need to be busted...

1. Jackie Chan does not do all of his own stunts. He does a few, for publicity's sake, but he's doubled quite a bit. He's even been doubled by Samo Hung, for crying out loud. Samo 'The Fat Dragon' Hung. I love the guy's work, but he doesn't even remotely look like Jackie, yet he's doubled for him.

2. Michelle Yeoh does not do all of her own stunts. She's done a couple, but for the most part, she's doubled. See Wing Chun, where she's obviously doubled in most of the fight sequences, and it looks like she's doubled by a man, to boot.

Get over it people.
