Hollywood stars are just like us. They’re sending each other camera-ready action stunts that then go viral.
Zoë Bell, the New Zealand-born stuntwoman-turned-actress best known for doing the “ship’s mast” atop a 1970 Dodge Challenger in Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, literally kicks it off by jumping off the couch and smashing her foot (thanks to some editing) into her old Xena: Warrior Princess college Lucy Lawless‘ face. From there, the cycle of senseless violence is passed on in increasingly clever ways.
The endlessly watchable video continues for over five glorious minutes, welcoming Scarlett Johansson, Cameron Diaz, Juliette Lewis, Drew Barrymore, Rosie Perez, Zoe Saldana and many more.
Since we’ve all got time to argue what the highlight is (unless we’re making stunt videos ourselves, that is) the best moment is probably a toss-up between Daryl Hannah kinda-sorta reprising her character from Kill Bill and the “hey, look who it is!” joy at seeing young Julia Butters, the scene-stealing youngster from Once Upon A Time … In Hollywood.
What’s best about this video is that it comes on the heels of a previous stunt(mostly)man vid from April. If we’re lucky we’ll get everyone to join forces on a third. (And maybe KT Tunstall will get off the commode by then.)
