Heard on Olympic & Bundy - Heidi Moneymaker is one of Hollywood's go-to stuntwomen and has been doubling for actress Scarlett Johansson for years.
She's also doubled for Julianne Moore ("The Hunger Games"), Michelle Rodriguez ("Fast and the Furious"), Drew Barrymore ("Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle") and many more.
Before entering the stunt double world, she was a champion gymnast for UCLA. Heidi is the only female gymnast in UCLA history to win NCAA gymnastics titles all four years in school, and she is UCLA’s first uneven bars NCAA champion.
In other words, she's a force to be reckoned with.
Heidi says she was introduced to the stunt world by fellow UCLA teammates who also were making a career out of it.
She joined me on Olympic & Bundy to talk about what got her into gymnastics as a kid, the transition to working as a stunt double, various films and roles she's taken on, the training you need to get work as a stunt double, her fitness company Fierce Lotus and its Action Star Workouts -- and much more.
