“The Transporter” actor Jason Statham has slammed the use of stunt doubles and computer generated imager (CGI) in action movies.

The 47-year-old star said action scenes should be performed by the actors themselves rather than being digital,reported Aceshowbiz.

“Any guy can do it. I have no ambition. I mean, I could take my grandma and put her in a cape and then put her in a green screen, and they’ll have stunt doubles come in and do all the action,” said the “Fast and Furious 7” star.

The actor said that these kind of techniques are effortless.

“Anybody can do it. They’re relying on stunt doubles and green screen and USD 200 million budget. It’s all CGI created,” he said.
