The Hardest Quiz You'll Ever Take: Is This Butt A Body Double's Or The Real Deal?

Is there a more universally appreciated body part than the all-mighty posterior? For men and women, young and old, gay and straight alike: We all enjoy a great butt. Hollywood understands this about people.

Fortunately for movie stars, baring their own buttocks on the big screen is optional these days. Some actors are more than happy to share their fanny with their fans. Others prefer to keep their cheeks to themselves and employ a derrière double. While we fully support either choice, it's hard to tell which booties are authentic — and which are the work of tight-assed stand-ins and seamless editing.
Here are 20 lovely bums in all their cinematic glory — but(t) can you guess which ones are the work of a stunt double, and which ones are true tushies ? Let's get to the bottom of the matter. It's time to learn the naked truth.

Answer: The Real Deal
Co-star Emilia Clarke says the actor liked to goof around during their characters' intense sex scenes (which were often not consensual)."He decided for one of the scenes which [the camera] was on his back and my face and he decided to use not a modesty sock, but use a beautiful, pink, fluffy sock," said the actress. For all we know, that could be the very scene.

Answer: Stunt Butt
Harington used a stand-in for his famous cave-sex scene with Ygritte (Rose Leslie). "When it came down to it I had a broken ankle," he said, "So the only time you saw my ass, it wasn’t my ass." Disappointing for sure.

Answer: The Real Deal
Faris wasn't planning on showing her own booty, but in a dire moment, the actress stepped up to the plate. "[I]t wasn't supposed to be me," she explained. "I originally had a body double. But then the body double had some complicating factors. It was sort of a last minute thing where I was like, 'Oh, I'll go ahead and do this.' And...I was really uncomfortable."

Answer: Stunt Butt
Baldwin opted for a booty double for that extreme close-up with Meryl Streep and Steve Martin, but says he has nothing to hide. "[That was] my ass double! You can put that in Entertainment Weekly so people know," he told the magazine. "I have a great ass, if I may say so. That’s a part of my body that needs no surgical enhancement or rearranging."

Answer: The Real Deal
That supernatural badonk-a-donk is all his. “As far as the butt cheek stuff goes,” he said, “it just makes sense. It’s not gratuitous; it’s realistic. If you’re a werewolf and you transform, you lose everything and there are your butt cheeks." You don't have to justify that choice to us, Joe.

Answer: Stunt Butt
"These young ladies came in and they were in the casting room, and I was there with the casting director and make-up artist," she told Ryan Seacrest. "These lovely women had to show us their derrières, and the chosen one resembled my body the most without looking like it's fake." She fooled us.

Answer: The Real Deal
Kunis' co-star Timberlake took the opportunity to flaunt his assets while they're still looking good. “It was fun...but I can’t say I’m going to be butt-naked in a movie again," he said. "I only did it because I’m young now, and everything’s where it’s supposed to be. I figured this is the time, before gravity gets the best of me.”

Answer: The Real Deal
The tush was true. "It was more daunting than the racing!" the Aussie admitted. "To take your clothes off in front of 100 people and cameras was something I wasn't comfortable with. To be honest, it was embarrassing." He said wife Elsa Pataky "enjoyed it" on the big screen. As did we.

Answer: Stunt Butt
While Johnson filmed most of the sex scenes herself, she let a double step in for the more painful, close-focus shots. “There was a close-up of a bum getting hit with a belt. That was not my bum, because I didn’t want to get hit with a belt," she said.

Jamie Dornan

Answer: The Real Deal
We think. While the cinematographer made no mention of a butt-double for Dornan in his exposé, this dude claims he worked as the actor's stand-in for some scenes. The only thing to do is stare at it long and hard enough to arrive at your own conclusion.

Answer: Stunt Butt
Apparently, it was the director who didn't want Owen's buns out on set. "The director made that decision not to use my butt," Wilson said. "I don't know how to interpret that."

Answer: Stunt Butt
Unlike his brother, Wilson was more than happy to pick his faux fanny. "Physically it was kind of a tough year," he confessed. "I thought it might be a good time to sit on the bench for that scene and let some other kind of more athletic guy take over there."

Answer: 50/50
Well, this one's a little murky. "There's one shot that's me and the shot of her diving into the water is a body double, because I didn't wanna go in the water — it was really, really cold," the actress explained. You might say she half-assed it.

Answer: Stunt Butt
Girlfriend got a booty model for her sexy scene. "It wasn't really my butt," Pinto told E! "It was a butt double. I'm relieved I don't have to deal with that issue." Can't argue with that.

Answer: Stunt Butt
The actress opted for a stand-in, understandable given that she had a baby right before they started filming. "The breast milk down both sides — it would have been inappropriate," she explained. "I really think it should have been [co-star] George [Clooney]’s tushie. We would've gone for that, too.

Answer: THEY'RE ALL THE REAL DEAL!
Yep, all those buns are 100% genuine. "There wasn’t one stunt butt or stunt dancer for any of the dancers,” star Channing Tatum said. And Joe Manganiello said he was happy to carry the bare-ass baton for the steamy sequel. Now that is commitment to the craft. Nicely done, boys! (And look, their faces are just as cute as their butts.)
