Movie hunk Mark Wahlberg has found a way of avoiding scary stunt scenes - he's discovered a perfect lookalike.

The actor hates risking injury or worse for hair-raising shots, and even hates being around the set when they're being filmed.

So, Wahlberg insists on bringing a lookalike to the set - to stand-in for him.

He says, "I'm no stunt guy or macho man with something to prove. I'd rather have my stunt guy in there.

"I do whatever they wanted me to do, but if it was ever my choice, I would be in the trailer. I've now got a guy who looks just like me and he would jump out the window right now with no pads."
