Jennifer Lopez’s New Body Double Is A MAN!

14 March 2012 by

When we spotted new pics of JLo frolicking on the set of her new music video, we had to do a double take. Literally. Whilst we weren’t surprised to see she had brought along her body double for the filming, we were horrified slightly bemused to see that it was, err, a man. Yes, an actual bloke. Being Jennifer Lopez. A MAN.

And what’s more, with his French plaits, sickeningly flat stomach and curves as amazing as JLo’s, he looked remarkably similar to the real thing. Apart from the stubble, obvs.

The pair were filming her new video for Follow The Leader in Acapulco, sunny Mexico, where JLo was joined by her 24-year-old toyboy, Casper Smart, who is directing the video.

Somewhat worryingly, JLo’s not the only one to use a bizarre body double. We decided to take a peek at some of the best – and worst – doubles.

Who knew none other than Sarah Jessica Parker used a male body double in a comedy wig during the filming of Did You Hear About The Morgans? Appaz, SJP was afraid of heights, and brought in the double when her character ‘Meryl’ is standing on the 17th floor of an apartment block and decides to climb over to the next balcony. Can’t say we blame her.

And whilst filming One Day Anne Hathaway was [SPOILER ALERT!] - quite sensibly - temporarily replaced by a mannequin, to film the fatal scenes during which her character, Emma, is thrown under a lorry.

We can’t actually tell who is whose double in this pic taken of Gerard Butler and his stunt man on the set of thriller Machine Gun Preacher. We’re not complaining, either. Two Gerard’s? Yes. Please.

And the same goes to January Jones, who was spotted with her double on the set of X-Men film First Class, in Buckinghamshire, 2010. Verdict? Super cute. Matching outfits from now on everyone.

We don’t know who this guy is kidding, but we can’t see that Tom Cruise bears much resemblance to his 'double' in this snap. Let’s hope it’s a back-of-the-head shot.

Rupert Grint and his Harry Potter stunt double Anthony Knight even dress in matching outfits off set too – they were snapped attending the private screening of Cherrybomb in 2010.
