Hollywood Stuntwoman Breaks Down Her Career in Stunts | Notes on a Scene | Vanity Fair


Scarlett : She's literally been in everything... like imagine Avatar being your second movie

N M : Being a stuntwoman must be so much more difficult. Revealing clothing leaves little to no room for pads, plus the torture of having to perform in high heels. Huge props to them! (And for the love of God, costume designers, we need practical fighting costumes!)

NotKyoot : "We got to kick each other's butts" So cute

Mey : "the men are all covered but the women don't really have a lot to cover them" A sad truth

Jeremy : When she says "rosie actually did a lot of that, she was in there doing it herself" she sounds like a mom talking about how her kid helped make dinner by doing one step 😂

ArtjomAlexandsson : This is breathtaking. Now I understand why stunts are always in the very beginning of the end titles.

SamuelTBrooks : What a tragedy it would have been to die working on Divergent.

Alex : What an actual badass..

The Big LeBoschski : Stunts actors/actresses are always so kind and happy-go-lucky. Very informative watch.

_窮 : Wow, I could listen to Alicia Vela-Bailey talk about her craft for hours. She should have a podcast, it's real interesting learning how stunts are setup and executed. Such an awesome craft.

NochSoEinKaddiFan : The drop on the elevator bumper looks so painfull, I can't help but flinch when I see it Oo And her name should be in the title instead of hollywood stuntwoman.


Jaylin Allen : She jumped off of a building 😱🙈

Saorla White : This is really interesting, thanks vanity fair for a different perspective into film

Christopher G. : I'd love to ask her, when (in her opinion) does a stunt become "too dangerous"?

Lindsay Daly : *Love that she refers to James Cameron as "Jim" lol*

Uhh?? ? : I love her name! I can't believe her parents chose "Hollywood stuntwoman" so creative!

eri139 : She's a stuntwoman, her husband's a stuntman, are they going to have stuntchildren?

Evil Cat Gaming : I wonder why they decided against wires for the Divergent stunt. Would the effect be significantly different, or was it just for bragging rights? If the scene would be virtually the same on wires, they shouldn't have endangered her life like that. Yeah, this job is inherently risky, but stunt people are human beings, and you have an obligation to make sure your employees have the safest working conditions possible.

Michael T. : 18:46 Imagine being part of the crew filming this. One moment they are kissing, and seconds later they beat the crap out of each other. That's gotta be a pretty surreal thing to watch.

Adnan A : My body’s so fragile I need a stunt double for daily life.

Landon Becker : She was so sweet and well spoken. This was insanely interesting.

Hussein Nour : What a prolific career. Well done to her. Shes a beast!

Ned Daniels : I wish I had heard of her sooner! It’s crazy watching all the movies but being oblivious to the fact it’s the same person. Love the series btw

The ABC Jug Band : Love the husband/wife story with Marvel.

kamran ali : you deserve an oscar this is real talent

Lindsey Cole : so basically shes more wonderman than gal gadot

Mack Debruin : She's just as, if not more beautiful than the actresses she's doubled for.

Shah Zeb : incredible... Now i think actual heros are people doing stunts while all credit is simply given to lead characters without even mentioning real name and effort behind these performances... it takes a strong woman/man to perform such a job with perfection...

Human Being : Wait she actually jumped down 8 stories?!

hippopajamas : This woman has been in freaking everything! She's such a badass.

Megan Adele : Wow I'm amazed by all the movies she's worked on, loved her character on Agents of SHIELD. Stunt people really don't get the credit they deserve.

McKenzie Dunwald : so cool that she and her husband get to do stunts together for a living

Pegasus1212 : OMG this woman should have her own channel. I would watch her breakdown scenes and other stunt men/woman do it too!!!

Nandika Mansingka : I only watch these videos for those markers. I love those markers

Julio Hernandez : Why they didn't put her name on the title? and the people of divergent is just irresponsible and awful,at the end shady projects never succeed

Vickey : This was really interesting, I'm surprised at how often the safety procautions aren't enough to really keep you safe. Your worried you'll miss the landing cussion, a stunt guy and later also you break your ribs, sliding in the building in transformers your just 'saving yourself'. I always thought hollywood producers would be scared shitless stunt people would die/end up in the hospital and get bad publicity for the studio.

thistubeisfucked : She should make half the money the stars she doubles makes. They'd be nothing without her.

Jce L : There really should be a stunt category in the Oscars. Stunt man & woman do not get enough credit for their blood, sweat and tears.

Rudrajit Saha : Break your ribs for a movie which doesn't even show your face..... My respect goes to all the Stunt artists

Nish Limbu : We don’t give enough appreciation to all the stunt doubles in films

Wrathfuldragons : Really cool to watch this especially as I am training to be a stuntwoman

JustEPIC : I hope she gets an actual role in one of upcoming tarantino's movies

More Muse : 18:57 that's actually romantic :)

LEO Wayne : she look like Jessica Biel

c 546 : Hollywood 👏 needs 👏 to 👏 care 👏 about 👏 the 👏 safety 👏 of 👏 stunt 👏 people

Rman Nayr : Stunt Doubles and Stunt Teams should get a Oscar!

Justin Bourne : this woman is extrordinary

matwang1 : Didn't she also play the cloning Inhuman in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Also the creature in Lights Out?
