Halle Berry has talked about how hard she trained for action flick John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum, and her stunt double Anisha Gibbs can confirm Berry is all business when it comes to her workouts.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson posted a heartwarming video on Instagram revealing that he gifted his stunt double Tanoai Reed a custom pickup truck to thank him for 17 years of work.

"Thor is definitely the most difficult character that we have to get in shape for," said Hanton. "Chris is already huge, he’s much bigger than me naturally so I have to train twice a day. It’s a job in itself."
COAT OF ARMS

OUT OF THIS WORLD
