There are definite perks to being an A-list actor, but it’s not all parties and designer duds for famous celebs. Just like the rest of us, these stars have day jobs that require long hours and endless energy (albeit with personal assistants and tons of free food).

Unlike us, however, they do get a bit of respite from all their hard work, which comes in the form of on-set stand-ins. These lookalikes must have the same height, body type, skin tone, and hair color as the actors, and are hired to (you guessed it) stand in for the stars during tedious lighting and camera checks.

We jump at the chance to ogle our favorite actors, but we have to admit, our interest is piqued by these doppelgangers. As a matter of fact, we spotted such stand-ins on the set of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay earlier today (October 1), filling in for stars Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth.

While we don’t know the names of these current body doubles, a former Jennifer Lawrence stand-in spilled some deets about working on the first installment of the franchise. When asked how the experience affected her, aspiring actress Christina Coffman said, “Shadowing Jennifer Lawrence for eighty-plus days taught me so much. She really knows what she is doing! That goes the same for Josh [Hutcherson] and all of the other actors too. The talent was incredible.”
